Title: The Taken
Series: Celestial Blues
Author: Vicki Pettersson
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Synopsis: Vicki Pettersson, author of the New York Times bestselling Signs of the Zodiac urban fantasy novels, breaks out with The Taken. The first book in her sexy, supernatural noir mystery series, Celestial Blues, The Taken features a former p.i.-turned-fallen angel and a beautiful, tough Las Vegas reporter—the most unorthodox pair of avengers since Jeaniene Frost’s Cat and Bones—joining forces to confront a terror that threatens to wreak murderous havoc in both the mortal and the immortal worlds. A dark and delicious mix of noir mystery, urban fantasy, and paranormal romance, The Taken is a must-read treat for the insatiable fans of Nalini Singh’s angel books, and for the many, many readers who have made Kelley Armstrong, Charlaine Harris, Kim Harrison, and Laurell K. Hamilton fantasy superstars.
“ ‘Everything has its place. Let in only those things that are greatly desired, no more and no less. That’s how to make sense of the world, and the only real way to achieve happiness.’ ”

Review: A rockabilly paranormal noir murder mystery, yes please!! And just look at that cover 😍
It’s on the darker side of Urban Fantasy but the rockabilly elements bring a touch of life and fun to it. It really made me pine for my 20’s and Hell Bunny dresses.
