Taken – Ava Delaney #4

It’s been months since Ava fooled the British vampires and dealt with Becca for good, but although life has been easier, it’s not without its problems. Her deal with the twins is physically harming her, Peter’s grasp on his sanity is tentative to say the least, Carl is struggling, and Esther is losing her edge.

Ava’s been asking too many questions in an attempt to fulfil her various deals, but her persistence turns out to be the biggest problem. She’s not the only one asking questions, but somebody wants her to stop, and finding out who’s in charge is a lot harder than taking care of her new houseguest.

To survive, on her own terms, Ava must take control of her own destiny for a change. That might involve swallowing her pride and accepting help from those she doesn’t trust because there are new foes on the horizon, and the number of people needing her protection keeps on increasing.

    I love the Ava Delaney series I’m obsessed I can’t wait till the next book comes out.

  2. Georgia Georgia

    Also I thought it might be interesting if Ava married Peter (or someone else whoever you think suits best) and had a family.
    Just a suggestion.

    When will book 5 be coming out?

    • Possibly May. I’m not 100% sure right now, but definitely not later than that.

  4. Angela Angela

    I absolutely love the Ava series. I couldn’t put them down. Just finished Taken and can’t wait for the next book. Awesome job and very well written. You have definitely become one of my favorite writers!!!!

    • Thanks, Angela! I’m delighted you’re enjoying the series. Hope the same goes for the final two. 😀

    Hey there, Claire!

    I just purchased Taken, again, for my newly bought Kindle HD… gotta love our US government when it comes time to deliver our taxes back to the people! I am going to re-read the first three Ava books, though, before I attempt to read this last one…..or at least skim through them. I want the complete knowledge of what is going on in the story line, before I begin again. I remember how much I adored this series and Don’t want to miss a thing!

    Congratulations on your Cursed series! I see you’re hanging with the big boys now, I told you that you were a terrific writer! So far I have all your work, except the last two books in Cursed, and recommend you to everyone

    I hope this short note finds you and yours in good spirits and health, I bet the kiddos are getting bigger and still driving you nutszoid?!

    Best Wishes,


    • Christina Hall Christina Hall

      It’s me again…..

      So I just began Thirst again…..i don’t know if I’ve mentioned before that I feel a sort of kinship with Ava….how silly of me not to realize why……I suffer from OCD! Lol

      I had forgotten that she is a counter.

      Love your humor Claire!

        I also just started reading books by Felicity Heaton, or F.E. Heaton, (she writes under both names)….. a little erotic, but well written, without feeling like your reading porn. I absolutely would recommend her to you!

        • I know I’ve downloaded at least one of her books, but I can’t remember if I’ve read it yet. I’m ridiculously bad with names. Thanks for the recommendation. 😀

      • I love the counting. That sounds weird, but whatever. It kind of feels redundant to keep pointing it out in later books though, so I tend to cut out a lot of the first draft OCD-ness. Sadly. Lol.

    • Hey, Christina. What’s the HD like?

      And thanks – getting big and bold. My daughter turned six last week. I’m still in shock. Lol. 🙂

  8. Amy Amy

    From the day I downloaded Thirst for free, I have been hooked on this series!!! I just now finished Taken and I was left just wanting more! Your books are so beautifully written and so engaging that you have to kind of think how everything connects with everything else! I can’t wait for book 5!!:)

    • Aw, thank you, Amy. I’m glad you’re enjoying them. Not too long for the next book, fingers crossed. 😀

  9. Danielle Danielle

    I looooiiive your series!! Ava delaney as well as cursed!! Can’t wait until the fifth book comes out!! I couldn’t put any of the books down!

  10. Christina Hall Christina Hall

    Aaaaahhhhh!!!! Love where you have taken Miss Delaney! Sorry it took so long to get back to you, college, education, and professors have been eating up my reading time! Taken was fantastic, looking forward to purchasing whatever comes next! Awesome job, Claire, really great work! 🙂 Glad to hear everyone’s we’ll….
