Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week I'm pining after The Taker by Alma Katsu. I've heard so many great things about this novel from other book blogs (it's already released in the UK) and I can't wait to get my hands on this sucker! The Taker won't be released in the US until September 6th so, unfortunately, there's still quite of bit of time left to wait for this book.
Described as an "epic supernatural romance," The TAKER combines historical fiction with a supernatural element for a dark romantic story that's "astonishing... heartbreaking and magical."
In the novel, set in the 19th century, a girl from northern Maine falls for and gets impregnated by a wealthy local out of her social league. When she flees to Boston to have the baby, she gets swept up by a group of immortal beings, and a tricky love triangle develops after the leader of the undying crew falls for her and gives her everlasting life.
Sounds neato, right?!
