Morgan: Before we get started, I have to apologize because this Dish is going to be a lot less comment-y and whole lot quote-y — but I swear it’s not my fault! The author has amazing passages on just about every page of this book.
Elisa: So true! The language in The Taken is nothing short of stunning. Vicki Pettersson delivers a noir-inspired paranormal romance filled with mystery and intrigue that all adds up to an incredibly fun read!
Morgan: The story opens in Las Vegas, but not the showy floors of the billion dollar casinos or the high-end shops of the strip. Instead we are at a seedy, charge-by-the-hour hotel on the outskirts of the town — where prostitution is the regular.
