We’re far from the only ones who love Vicki Pettersson’s amazing new series:

“A sure bet for urban-fantasy readers of all types, but especially fans of Carrie Vaughn, Jim Butcher, and P. N. Elrod.”   — Booklist

“Intriguing mix of paranormal, romance and mystery with just enough suspense!”   — Suspense magazine

“Pettersson hits every note in the familiar duet of a ‘reticent, complicated, darkly sexy man’ and a luscious, plucky ‘girl reporter’ …. The resulting irresistibly good yarn proves that there’s still plenty of room for brilliant innovation in urban fantasy.”   — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Pettersson’s amazing new series is off to a rocking start with this compelling read.”  — RT Book Reviews (top pick)

“Exceptional. Mystery, crime scene drama, and more than enough romance to keep the heart pumping blend seemlessly into an enthralling read that kept me glued to the pages. I can’t wait for the sequel.”   — Kim Harrison

“A stylish, atmospheric mash-up of rockabilly and angelic affairs quickly reveals itself to be so much more: THE TAKEN proves that Pettersson is not afraid to explore the darkest corners of the human heart – and that her gift for redemption is unsurpassed.”    — Sophie Littlefield

“A delectably dark paranormal thriller. I’ve always been a fan of Pettersson’s work, but she knocks it out of the park with this one.”   — Kelley Armstrong

Here’s the first chapter.
