The Descent

By Alma Katsu
The Descent by Alma Katsu digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

The author of The Hunger delivers a “daring, soaring, and ultimately gut-wrenching” (The New York Times) conclusion to her critically acclaimed Taker Trilogy, bringing Lanore McIlvrae to a final encounter with Adair, her powerful nemesis.

Dismayed by Adair’s otherworldly powers and afraid of his passionate temper, Lanore has run from him across time, even imprisoning him behind a wall for two centuries to save Jonathan, her eternal love. But instead of punishing her for her betrayal, Adair declared his love for Lanore once more and set her free.

Now, Lanore has tracked Adair to his mystical island home to ask for one last favor. The Queen of the Underworld is keeping Jonathan as her consort, and Lanore wants Adair to send her to the hereafter so that she may beg for his release. Will she honor her promise to return to Adair? Or is her true intention to be reunited with Jonathan at any cost?

“To be honest, I am a bit disappointed with this last series. It is not what I expected omg!!”
“This is the third book in the Taker trilogy by Alma Katsu. This book seemed quite a bit differently then the first two books but, at the same time, felt like a natural progression of the trilogy. The last few chapters were interesting and I’m trying to decide how I feel about the ending. So far, I’m going with - I like it.”
