Waiting on Wednesday - The Taker by Alma Katsu

Waiting on Wednesday is a chance for readers and bloggers to let others know what they are eagerly anticipating, and it's hosted by Breaking the Spine

This weeks pick from me is a debut book from Alma Katsu, The Taker:

I love the cover on this.  It doesn't tell you anything about the book itself, but it's very ornate and just different.

This is released on the 14th April (1 days time!!!) and sounds intriguing - blending paranormal with history and romance.....I love a good love story, and if it's paranormal then even better :)

Book synopsis:

Have you ever loved someone so much that you'd do anything for them?

When Dr Luke Findley turns up to his hospital shift in the small town of St Andrews, Maine, he's expecting just another evening of minor injuries and domestic disputes. But instead, Lanore McIlvrae walks into his life - and changes it forever. For Lanny is a woman with a past...

Lanny McIlvrae is unlike anyone Luke has ever met. Hers is a story of love and betrayal that defies time and transcends mortality - and cannot end until Lanny's demons are finally put to rest. Her two hundred years on this earth have seen her seduced by both decadence and brutality - but through it all she has stayed true to the one true love of her life. Until now.

An unforgettable novel about the power of unrequited love to elevate and sustain, but also to blind and ultimately destroy, The Taker is an immortal love story on an epic scale...

This does sound good and I read a good review of it earlier today.
