Dr. Luke Findley is on the midnight shift in the emergency
room when the police bring in a young woman. Few strangers
come to this remote town in northernmost Maine in the
winter, and this stranger is accused of a bizarre crime:
killing a man and leaving his body in the Great North Woods.
The young woman, Lanny, tells the doctor that she and the
man in the woods lived in this town at its founding two
hundred years ago, until fate sentenced them to an eternity
of unhappiness until they atone for their sins.
The man in the woods is Jonathan, son of the town's founder,
and the love of Lanny's life. After Lanny commits a terrible
sin in the hope of claiming Jonathan for her own, she's
banished from town and sent to Boston to serve her penance.
In Boston, she falls in with a beguiling yet frightening
man, Adair, who has otherworldly powers, including the
ability to confer immortality. His world is one of unknown
sensual pleasures and seemingly limitless power, but at what
Adair wants to add Jonathan to the collection of treacherous
courtiers who do his bidding (but for unknown ends) and
sends Lanny back to Maine to collect him. It seems like the
answer to Lanny's deepest desireâ€”to be with Jonathan
foreverâ€”but once Jonathan has joined Adair's pack of
immortals, she sees that Adair is not what he seems and his
intentions toward Jonathan are far worse than she imagined.
And now it is up to her to save her belovedâ€”and herselfâ€”from
a terrible fate designed to last for all eternity.
The Taker is a story of the power of love to corrupt, to
drive us to do terrible things in its name, and the courage
it takes to sacrifice in the name of love and ultimately be
worthy of absolution.
