Review: The Taker (The Taker Trilogy #1) by Alma Katsu
A mysterious woman found covered in blood is brought to the local E.R. after having confessed to the euthanasia of her travelling companion. Attempting to persuade her doctor to help her escape police custody, Lanore reveals her body’s healing abilities that defy science and everything Luke has been ingrained to believe in as a doctor. As the two flee, Lanore tells a haunting tale of a life started over 200 years ago, unspeakable sins and debauchery, and the unrequited love for her travelling companion Jonathon. The Taker is a GraveTells Must-Read!

Giveaway: Early readers are “taken” with The Taker. Come chat with Alma Katsu and find out why!
When I started writing The Taker, way back in 2000, my goal was to write a big story with big emotions that would sweep the reader away. As a young reader, I loved epic books by writers like Alexander Dumas and Edgar Allan Poe, but mostly I admired Anne Rice’s Interview With The Vampire. Talk about setting ridiculously high goals for yourself. I didn’t expect to write a publishable book, but I wanted to see if I could create unforgettable characters and write the kind of story that would stay with readers for days after it was finished.
