Trailer-The Taker by Alma Katsu

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.

The Taker by Alma Katsu is due to hit the shelves tomorrow, and I am VERY excited. I read this book and few weeks ago, and it quickly lurched itself into one of the best books I have read this year.  If you want to know how much I liked it, you can check out my review here.

I am not a huge fan of book trailers. But this one I liked. I think it conveys the essence of the book perfectly.  It's mysterious and chilling all at once.

 So if you're in the mood to do some book shopping (and come on, let's me honest, we're always in the mood to do some book shopping), I would encourage you to pick up The Taker, it will not disappoint.

~Happy Reading Everyone!
