Can obsession last for eternity?
This is the theme explored by Alma Katsu in her engrossing novel "The Taker." Reminiscent of the earlier writings of Anne Rice, this novel plunges the reader into a dark world of beings cursed with the gift of immortality. This story spans centuries, but in the end it is the depth of characterization that keeps the reader riveted.
If you like your supernatural fiction with complex characters and dark subject matter then take "The Taker" and be prepared to be totally taken in.
Along this same vein, I highly recommend the rich prose of Anne Rice.
