ABOUT: 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…
For centuries, my loyalties lie with Death. She is my mistress and master. I am alive only to do what pleases her. And for Death, I shall battle the evil among us until the bitter end to keep her safe.
Note: this book follows Dubhan (a Reaper) and Kyra (a Light Fae).
The story is a quick read as it follows a major battle that happened in Fever (Dark Kings #16). Because of that I didn’t have too many expectations going into this book (insta-love and all that) but it was still enjoyable nonetheless.
You learn more about Kyra than Dubhan, which stinks. Both are very likable people. What I love about Kyra (and I think Dubhan would agree) is her view of the world. It’s very honest and refreshing. She looks on the bright side of life while still being rational. Based on what happens her type of perspective was need to being this new phase of the overall story.
As I mentioned before, Dubhan is nice but he didn’t really add anything to the story. He was a plot device with no character development that tied him to Kyra and the overall plot.
The twists really got me excited for the possibilities for what might happen later on. It’s almost devious and as of now I don’t know how the heroes will prevail, which I’m all for. I like the direct this new phase is going. This book was a good exposition for that.
