The Taker - Alma Katsu
I must have picked this book up 3 or 4 times before actually committing to reading it and it was absolutely not at all what I expected. A supernatural tale of immortality, revenge, love and destiny, Katsu flips our story back and forth from the past to the future to tell us about a women who's love for one man spans centuries and the cost of that enduring love.The telling is lush and detailed, the stunning conclusion made me gasp but also nod my head at the inevitability of it all. Now so perfectly positioned for the continuation in book 2, The Taker entranced me.
