“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.”
“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.”
“A sure bet for urban-fantasy readers of all types, but especially fans of Carrie Vaughn, Jim Butcher, and P. N. Elrod.”
“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.”
“Pettersson impressively deepens and darkens the compelling romance between her complex and irresistibly tormented protagonists. Even minor figures are fascinating, as is the ruthlessly realistic setting.”
“Pettersson is one author who can glue me to the page until the very last word. ...Ten stars.”
“The Lost is one exciting follow-up! The romance between Kit and Grif is equal parts passion and doubt, keeping readers hanging on the reach the conclusion. And what a conclusion!...This is a wonderful sequel.”
