I don’t know if I’ve ever read a reaper book but I have to say that this was pretty good. I absolutely loved Kylen. He was kind of torn between being good and being evil, and then he saved Olivia in a back alley and that was that. Olivia was dying from the last stages of cancer and she was in the alley when she tried to help two other people who were having their souls taken by demons and the demon turned on her. She had a great bucket list, too.
Of course, I loved all the other players: Deacon, Ruth, Nate and Maeve, they were all great secondary characters. And it was one battle after another throughout the book. It was kind of exciting through the entire story. And it was a great love story.
There was definitely explicit sex in this. And swearing, too. And the F-bomb was used 7 times.
Overall, I did enjoy the whole book. I will move on to the next book even though I wasn’t completely thrilled with the narration.
As to the narrator: At first I was thinking I wasn’t going to be able to listen to this because it seemed like Michael Rubino was in such a hurry to finish the book, he read sooo fast it was just crazy. But I kept listening and he finally slowed down. The men all had their own voices but the women sounded pretty manly. It was OK but he really needs to practice his women’s voices.
I loved this book, I never actually read any stories about reapers so it was a nice change from the typical vampire story. The narrator did a great job of playing all the characters as well as being deep and mysterious with the main character. Totally will recommend this audio book to others!
