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
