I recently got the news that five—count ‘em, FIVE!—of my very favorite authors in the whole wide world were willing to say some pretty amazing things about THE TAKING...leaving me, how do I say this? Speechless.
The first was one of the very first people who even read THE TAKING, Melissa Marr, International and New York Times bestselling author of the WICKED LOVELY series, LOKI’S WOLVES, GRAVEMINDER, THE ARRIVALS, and about a zillion other things. You can imagine I was nervous while she was reading it, so when she said this:
"THE TAKING is an action-packed, heart-filled ride. I loved it."
And I was all...
And then, Kami Garcia, #1 New York Times bestselling author of UNBREAKABLE and coauthor of BEAUTIFUL CREATURES, had this to say:
"Equal parts romance and suspense – THE TAKING is a sexy blend of conspiracy theory and Sci-Fi."
And you guys, just when I thought I couldn’t take any more, another super, amazing, fantastic blurb came in, this time from Melissa de la Cruz, New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of many critically acclaimed and award-winning novels for teens, including THE AU PAIRS series, The BLUE BLOODS series, and her new book FROZEN...not to mention my favorite new TV show WITCHES OF EAST END:
"Kim Derting does it again! THE TAKING is an exciting, fast-paced thriller with an eerie and intriguing paranormal mystery at the heart of it. You'll want to read it as fast as you can and then DEMAND the next book NOW!"
I'm telling you, I almost exploded.
And then THIS came in:
"Kimberly Derting is an amazing writer and a master storyteller. THE TAKING will have you hooked from the very first pages." –Richelle Mead, #1 New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author of VAMPIRE ACADEMY series (which is coming to theaters February 14, 2014!), BLOODLINES series, and a ton of great adult titles, too!
And finally THIS happened:
“With pitch perfect prose, swoon-worthy romance, and edge-of-your seat suspense, THE TAKING kept me reading late into the night. This is Derting at her best!” – Alyson Noël, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of THE IMMORTALS series, THE SOUL SEEKERS series, the RILEY BLOOM series, and so many more!
Crazy, right!? I feel like the luckiest girl in the world right about now.
Best. Christmas. Ever.
