The Reckoning (Immortal Trilogy 2) - Alma Katsu I wasn't as thrilled with this book in the series as I was with the first. I definitely felt this book was weaker and had less of a "gothic" feel than the first book, The Taker. I found myself dragging to read the book because of this. I am hoping the final book returns to that "gothic/noir" feeling that Katsu is a master of.
