Bookish Escape Chat with Vicki Pettersson

Vicki PetterssonAre you a fan of Vicki Pettersson’s Signs of the Zodiac series? Have you heard about The Taken, which starts a fabulous new supernatural noir series? If not, where have you been? The Taken hits stores today and Larissa (from Larissa’s Bookish Life) and I were you curious to see what it is about. Would you like to meet the characters before The Taken is released on June 12th? If so, Larissa and I talked with Vicki about her new series on Monday and picked her brain about this fabulous new mystery.  If you missed it, never fear.  You can listen to it now!

VPettersson-TakenHe’s a fallen angel. She’s a rockabilly reporter. Together they must solve a deadly string of murders plaguing the mortal and the immortal worlds.

Griffin Shaw used to be a PI, but that was over fifty years ago when gumshoes hoofed the streets . . . and he was still alive. Now he’s a Centurion, an angel who assists other murdered souls through their journey to the afterlife. But while Shaw might be an angel … he’s no saint. Haunted by the mysterious events surrounding his own death, he seizes a chance to wreak some vengeance when he witnesses a deadly attack on journalist Katherine “Kit” Craig.

Joining forces, the unlikely avengers take to the streets, hunting a killer whose trail of bodies stretches across Las Vegas and into an immortal netherworld. It is a dangerous trek that lead them into the darkest corners of Sin City and into the heart of an evil conspiracy extending beyond the lights of the Strip that could destory them both.

But destruction isn’t the only threat Griffin faces. The closer he gets to Kit, the more he finds himself bewitched by her mortal charms. Can he resist falling under her spell? And does he want to?

Meet Vicki Pettersson!

Vicki Pettersson is the New York Times bestselling author of the Signs of the Zodiac novels, a six-book urban fantasy series set in her hometown of Las Vegas. Though she’ll always consider that glittering dustbowl home, she now divides her time between Vegas and Dallas, where she’s learning to like good Tex-Mex (easy) and the Dallas Cowboys (easier than you’d think). Next up is The Taken, first in the supernatural noir trilogy, Celestial Blues, debuting June 12, 2012.

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.
