Summary (via NetGalley):
There is no escaping a Reaper. I am an elite assassin, part of a brotherhood that only answers to Death. And when Death says your time is up, I’m coming for you…

My duty to Death drives me forward. I’ve never once strayed from my path – not even when the future seemed uncertain. However, Maeve’s intelligence, cunning and determination challenges me in ways I never imagined. Finding out what she knows is the key to learning how to conquer our enemy. The Dark Fae breathes new life into me unlike anything I’ve ever known. For Maeve, I will risk trusting the Dark. For her…I will battle darkness itself.


My Review:
A short and sweet romance novel that perfectly sets the stage for the coming major battles.

This is definitely a tale of redemption. Both Meave and Bradach both have lived and breathed darkness; it’s something they haven’t managed to escape. But through each other it seems that the both may find their way out of the darkness

Meave and Bradach are two halves of the same coin. Honorable, intelligent, strong, and extremely capable. It’s not often you find an MC couple so seamlessly suited for each other.

Meave is everything Bradach hates (I know, weird to say) This stark contrast that battles both their inner demons. Bradach wants nothing to do with Dark fae and Meave knows nothing but the Dark. It’s a tenuous attraction – unthinkable for both – but it forces them to face their fears.

Although I find them seamlessly compatible, I did find the romance a bit rushed and their attraction too instantaneous. However, it is a short read – only 200+ pages – so that’s not a lot of wiggle room.

All the missed chances within the story are adding to the anticipation. I thought certain conflicts would take place but, no, you’ll have to wait longer.

I do like that all the players are coming together. It’s clear that monumental change is about to happen. I don’t know who will be the next MC couple, but they will be in for a whirlwind. I hope book 9 comes out soon! I love this world that Grant has created.
