Overview

"Exceptional. Mystery, crime scene drama, and more than enough romance to keep the heart pumping blend seamlessly into an enthralling read that kept me glued to the pages."
--Kim Harrison

"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

Vicki Pettersson, author of the New York Times bestselling Signs of the Zodiac urban fantasy novels, breaks out with The Taken. The first book in her sexy, supernatural noir mystery series, Celestial Blues, The Taken features a former p.i.-turned-fallen angel and a beautiful, tough Las Vegas reporter--the most unorthodox pair of avengers since Jeaniene Frost's Cat and Bones--joining forces to confront a terror that threatens to wreak murderous havoc in both the mortal and the immortal worlds. A dark and delicious mix of noir mystery, urban fantasy, and paranormal romance, The Taken is a must-read treat for the insatiable fans of Nalini Singh's angel books, and for the many, many readers who have made Kelley Armstrong, Charlaine Harris, Kim Harrison, and Laurell K. Hamilton fantasy superstars.

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 from veteran paranormal romance author Pettersson (the Signs of the Zodiac series). Kit is a rockabilly devotee of the 1950s who passionately pursues the human element behind the news. Grif’s from the actual 1950s; dead 50 years, he’s now an angel who collects just-murdered souls like Kit’s photographer friend Nicole, killed while investigating a child prostitution ring that serves the rich and famous. After Grif loses his wings for breaking the rules to help Nicole, he decides the time is right to solve his wife’s long-ago murder—and his own. Meanwhile, Kit is determined to break the prostitution story and justify Nicole’s death. Pettersson hits every note in the familiar duet of a “reticent, complicated, darkly sexy man” and a luscious, plucky “girl reporter” out to save the world, and laces it with dollops of unconventional angelology. The resulting irresistibly good yarn proves that there’s still plenty of room for brilliant innovation in urban fantasy. Agent: Irene Goodman, Irene Goodman Literary Agency. (June)
