Recommended Read - The Taker by Alma Katsu

The TakerThe Taker by Alma Katsu

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This story is a hauntingly new take on immortality with complex characters and a richness of emotions that I haven't found in any other novel. While there were some shockingly graphic adult scenes, they added to the overall theme of the book and created a dark yet realistic world and a mix of the past and present. With several interwoven characters, a story is created that is both dark and a deep reflection on what the definition of humanity really is. This book wouldn't be suitable for anyone under the age of 18, but is a well-recommended adult read!
