Publisher's Summary

A love triangle spanning 200 years... Alma Katsu takes listeners on a breathtaking journey through the landscape of the heart.

New York Times best-selling 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.

i can't wait for the third book!

If you could sum up The Reckoning in three words, what would they be?

Change....anticipation...love

What did you like best about this story?

It was fascinating. The story moved in time, in different countries...a real mystery. A great love story. Unexpected things happening in the story.

Have you listened to any of Laurel Lefkow’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

She does a good job with both 'The Taker' and 'The Reckoning'.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It surprised me more than once with the turns the story took; made me say "Aha!" Also made me tear up a time or two.

Any additional comments?

This author has done an admirable job in writing these books and I can't wait for the last book of the trilogy. These characters are mesmerizing.

Very dark

I would say this book is a mixture of beautiful creatures and Fifty Shades of Grey.
