  • "Katsu's brilliant series second will utterly enchant you. The story is told in such a distinctive voice, you won't be able to stop thinking about it. The characters will delight you, horrify you and instil hope ... It's one of this reviewer's favourites so far this year."

  • "Having fallen for Alma’s writing in her first release The Taker I really couldn’t wait to spend more time with her as her immortal existence was revealed a chapter at a time. Add to this Alma’s identifiable writing style, a great ability to bring the reader to the heart of the tale and backed up with a solid supporting cast made this tale a real joy to spend time around. Great stuff."

  • "The more I read this series the more I love Alma Katsu’s writing. She is a mystery/paranormal/historical fiction mastermind. She’s got three genres going on here and doesn’t drop the ball once… if you haven’t picked up this series yet, go out and find a copy of book one, The Taker, immediately. If you’ve already read (and loved) The Taker you will not be disappointed by The Reckoning. It is a sequel that is every bit as good as the first."

  • "I loved the multi-tapestried feel of these novels – it’s an utterly readable blend of supernatural-powered fantasy, historical fiction, and existential horror… remarkable. Romance, fantasy and mainstream fiction fans alike will be swept away by this brutal tale of (immortal) love gone wrong. Highly recommended for readers who enjoy novels like A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness, Diana Gabaldon's Dragonfly in Amber"

  • "Enticing, sensual beyond any other novel read in years within this genre, and thrillingThe Taker is recommended for any reader who wishes to lose him/herself in a strong historical horror tale that transcends the genre with ease."
