The Reckoning: Book Two of the Taker Trilogy by Alma Katsu

The Reckoning is an exceptional sequel to, Katsu's "The Taker".  The Reckoning takes us deeper into the life of Adair and how he has become the man he is.

Once again --- the transition between present day and the past flow seamlessly. The character's development is at an all time high, the character's created are phenomenal. The story is seductive and entraps you to the very end. You will be left craving the final installment in this trilogy, which comes out later this year.

The end is ---- unexpected and pleasantly wonderful.

Grade: A

But the portal to her past opens once more, as Adair, the Taker, crashes into the twenty-first century to hunt down Lanny and exact revenge for her heartless betrayal—the price she must pay for an endless love.
