Book News! | Giveaway: The Reckoning and other news in The Taker Trilogy by Alma Katsu



The Taker was a debut novel that made quite a splash with readers.
Part of the reason it attracted such a powerful gathering of readers could possibly have been it left a speechless mark after reading with its intricate and complex love story.
Well that and Alma Katsu's unique signature writing style that is almost intimate.





Alma recently released but only in electronic format The Devil’s Scribe, a short story that’s part of The Taker Saga. In it, Lanny travels back to America to check on the house in Boston and meets Edgar Allan Poe, who figures out that this woman has a secret which he must learn. It's going to be available for all e-reader devices. You can find out more about the short story (which will include the first chapter of The Taker) @ Simon & Schuster's website- The Devil's Scribe eBook



The Devil’s Scribe by Alma Katsu
Publication: March 13th 2012 by Pocket Star 
Fans of the Taker trilogy will love this original eBook novella featuring the series’ immortal heroine, Lanny...and Edgar Allen Poe!

In this eShort story, Lanore McIlvrae returns to America for the first time in 20 years—after decades of running from her past—to confront the source of her fear. The year is 1846 and Lanore—Lanny—has just landed in Baltimore after a long transatlantic crossing. That very night, she meets an “unattractive man with a high forehead and sunken eyes, and a tiny, pinched mouth like a parrot’s beak” who claims to write stories so dark and unsettling that he could be the Devil’s Scribe. His name? Edgar Allan Poe. Has Lanny finally met her match in this macabre man…or is it the other 
way around?

To fans of The Taker Trilogy, The Reckoning, has a closeness to being released with around 3 months to which is really unbelievably exciting if you were taken with The Taker.  And The Taker itself will soon have a paperback release as of: March 27, 2012.


The Reckoning (The Taker Trilogy #2) by Alma Katsu
Expected publication: June 19th 2012 by Gallery Books 

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. 




The Reckoning is coming out: June 19, 2012!
