Evocative Romance. Unexpected Evil.

An author with a dark side and a light side...happily exploring both.

Review: The Taker, by Alma Katsu


The Taker cover

No star rating for this one, just a DNF. I struggled with the POV switches and the present-tense narrative from the beginning. Made it as far as page 162 (chapter 19), when Katsu stopped the story dead in its tracks to give us a whole other character's back story. I personally don't like that particular story construct and wasn't invested enough in the book to continue wading through it.
