There is no escaping a Reaper. I am an elite assassin, part of a brotherhood that answers only to Death. And when Death says your time is up, I am coming for you....
I answer to no one but Death. I am impenetrable, impervious, immortal. I exist to do Death's bidding, and no one - not Reaper nor human nor Fae - can stand in my way. Except for the bewitching half-Fae Catriona. She swears the magic in her family passed her by, but I know better. This woman is strong. This woman is powerful. And when her abilities surge forth, no one will be able to stop the Dark Fae from coming for her. Except for me. I want to keep her close. I want to keep her safe. I want lose myself to her again and again....

This was much better than the last Reapers book. I really liked Fintan and Cat. Fintan had closed off ANY kind of feelings over thousands of years and Cat taught him to feel again. And Cat thought she didn’t have any magic, which she had a lot of. I’m still getting tired of Bran, though. I mean, really, he has to get away in every book? That makes the Reapers look a little worthless, IMO. They all keep trying to kill him by stabbing him. Why doesn’t someone just cut his head off? Time to put an end to him and find a new storyline.
And it’s time to find a male narrator OR stop bringing the Dragon Kings into the Reaper books, too. Or, maybe it’s time for me to stop buying the Reaper audibles. The Reapers were all males when the series started so why was a woman chosen as a narrator? Doesn’t make a bit of sense. A DRAGON that sounds womanly is horrible.
The overall story was wonderful but the narrator and Bran have to go. Again, IMO. I absolutely love the Reapers but this story is getting old. Ya', gotta change it up now and then or you lose readers.
There is explicit sex in this story, as usual, and the F-bomb was used 2 times.
As to the narration: Victoria McGloven simply cannot narrate. Since 2012 she’s narrated 8 books so that should tell you something. She never, ever laughs when the book calls for it and she only whispers occasionally. She does woman’s voices great but that’s not who she should be doing better at. The men’s voices are still terrible. Isn’t Victoria McGloven reading reviews of other female narrators, to see what people are saying about them? There are some fantastic female readers and it would behoove Ms. McGloven to listen to some of them. Katherine Kellgren, Tanya Eby, Sophie Eastlake, Mary Jane Wells, Ashford McNab, to name a few.
