A love triangle spanning 200 years…Alma Katsu takes readers on a breathtaking journey through the landscape of the heart.
New York Times bestselling author Scott Westerfeld (Leviathan) praises Alma Katsu’s The Taker as, “a centuries-spanning epic that will keep you turning pages all night. This marvelous debut is a thinking person’s guilty pleasure.” And Keith Donohue (The Stolen Child) says, “The Taker is a frighteningly compelling story about those most human monsters—desire and obsession. It will curl your hair and keep you up late at night.”
Now Alma Katsu delivers the highly anticipated follow-up to her haunting novel about an immortal woman learning firsthand that the heart wants what the heart wants…no matter how high the stakes. Fans of The Taker can finally indulge in their next juicy fix with the second book of the trilogy, The Reckoning. In this gripping, pulse-pounding supernatural sequel, discover what happens to Lanny, Luke, Adair—and Jonathan. The Reckoning picks up where The Taker leaves off, following Lanny on her path to redemption—and creating a whole new level of suspense.

Review: I found this a slow start and a little confusing. But it is the second book in the series and I didn't read the first so I guess it's expected. I had a hard time figuring out what was going on. Jumping between characters didn't really help either. I think if I had read book one I would have understood and enjoyed this more.
With that said, I do think the book had strong characters. Even though I was confused by parts the plot was good and I did enjoy Ms Katsu's writing style.
