The first book of the trilogy Taker just been released here in Brazil. Written by Alma Katsu, the first of the trilogy called "Thief of Souls". I personally have not read the book, just the synopsis. I found this review and I'll post the Skoob, who will read the book. If you read, comment here on what it found.
Lanore, or just Lanny, is a young man who, on a winter night, is found with bloody clothes, claiming to have killed a man, Jonathan, the great love of his life. The woman with the face of a child is taken to a local hospital, where she meets Luke Findley, a divorced surgeon and hurt. But something in this man takes Lanny entrust it to their most hidden secrets, telling that is no longer human, is an immortal. Driven by instinct, Luke helps her escape and pursues her in his escape. On the way this trip, Lanore begins to tell the story of your life, and your first real life, as a young Puritan passionate. His story begins around 1800, right there, in St. Andrew, Maine, when he was still a little girl, who has always been in love with Jonathan St. Andrew, eldest son of the founder of the small town. Taking courage, calls for a "first date" within the church, where the kisses, revealing her feelings for him, which were not reciprocal. However, the two become great friends, and that friendship lasts for many years, while Jonathan has slept with more than half of women of the citadel. And one of those ends up pregnant, causing the boy to go to Lanny in despair, wondering what he should do, as Sophie, the woman - who was married - wanted him to take the child and marry with her. Lanore ends up confronting her, telling her that Jonathan did not marry up with her and she claimed that the child was her husband. The next day, he hears a shot - a sign that used to call the city - and with his father, vai the neighboring property, discovering that his wife was missing. Shortly after, the two met in almost completely frozen in a river engrossed in the forest, indicating suicide. During the burial of the dead, and Jonathan Lanore end, finally surrendering to one another, united by tragedy. But something even worse happened: she herself ends up pregnant and has to go to Boston to have the baby and give it to adoption. However, when the destination is not really in favor, anything can (and give!) Wrong. Naive, just trusting the wrong people, and this is the beginning of its end. Involved in a supernatural world, she will have to figure out how to live his immortal life alongside Adair, her thief of souls, and the other courtiers, discovering that you can not believe everything you hear ... and distrust of the reasons why the stories are told. But what she really should know is that you never involves someone who loves the dark world.
