Giveaway - The Taker (by Alma Katsu) Fan Pack

To view my review CLICK HERE

In celebration of The Taker by Alma Katsu coming out in paperback on March 27th, Alma is allowing me to giveaway of one of her fan packs. The pack includes a proof of the trade paperback cover, a spoofy wine label made for The Reckoning, bookmarks, post-it notes and a Reckoning pen, and a copy of the book.

If you're in need of something to tide you over until The Reckoning comes out, Simon & Schuster is releasing The Devil’s Scribe, a short story that’s part of The Taker Saga on March 13th (tomorrow). 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.The Devil’s Scribe is only being published electronically, and will be available for all ereader devices. You can find out more about the short story (which will include the first chapter of The Taker) here. I already pre-ordered my copy.

FYI, The Taker picked up some nice accolades, including being selected by the American Library Association as one of the top ten debut novels of 2011. It was my personal favorite book of 2011. It also made the extended bestsellers list in the UK and is off to a great start in Italy following the February 16th release. The paperback will include a reader’s guide and a chapter from the second book in the trilogy, The Reckoning (coming June 19th). The cover for The Reckoning has yet to be revealed.

(FYI for some reason Amazon doesn't have the paperback up for preorder yet.)


I am giving away one fan pack for The Taker by Alma Katsu.

Description of The Taker from back of the book:

"True love can last an eternity . . . but immortality comes at a price. . . ."

On the midnight shift at a hospital in rural Maine, Dr. Luke Findley is expecting another quiet evening of frostbite and the occasional domestic dispute. But the minute Lanore McIlvrae--Lanny--walks into his ER, she changes his life forever. A mysterious woman with a past and plenty of dark secrets, Lanny is unlike anyone Luke has ever met. He is inexplicably drawn to her . . . despite the fact that she is a murder suspect with a police escort. And as she begins to tell her story, a story of enduring love and consummate betrayal that transcends time and mortality, Luke finds himself utterly captivated.

Her impassioned account begins at the turn of the nineteenth century in the same small town of St. Andrew, Maine, back when it was a Puritan settlement. Consumed as a child by her love for the son of the town's founder, Lanny will do anything to be with him forever. But the price she pays is steep--an immortal bond that chains her to a terrible fate for all eternity. And now, two centuries later, the key to her healing and her salvation lies with Dr. Luke Findley.

Part historical novel, part supernatural page-turner, "The Taker" is an unforgettable tale about the power of unrequited love not only to elevate and sustain, but also to blind and ultimately destroy, and how each of us is responsible for finding our own path to redemption.
