Starred PW review for Vicki Pettersson’s THE TAKEN

We could not be more excited for Vicki Pettersson’s upcoming new Celestial Blues series, which starts with THE TAKEN 6/12/12, featuring fallen angel Griffin Shaw and intrepid reporter, and we’re far from the only ones.  THE TAKEN has received great advance quotes from Kim Harrison, Kelley Armstrong, and Sophie Littlefield, and now just received a fabulous starred review from Publishers Weekly!

“In a world where angels can be monsters, Griffin Shaw, a murdered PI turned tough-guy soul-collector, and Las Vegas reporter Katherine “Kit” Craig lock horns and hearts in this supernatural noir mystery. The resulting irresistibly good yarn proves that there’s still plenty of room for brilliant innovation in urban fantasy.”   – Publishers Weekly  “starred review”

Here’s a great Q&A with Vicki about her angels, writing supernatural noir, rockabilly and more at Publishers Weekly.

Other praise for THE TAKEN:

“A stylish, atmospheric mash-up of rockabilly and angelic affairs … The Taken proves that Pettersson is not afraid to explore the darkest corners of the human heart – and that her gift for writing 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

“Exceptional. An enthralling read that kept me glued to the pages until the final, satisfying end. I can’t wait for the sequel.” –Kim Harrison
