I always imagined Death's final kiss would be cold. It wasn't. Four years later, I can still remember the exact shade of his skin: a blue so pale it looked like moonlight. I dream of his touch. Mostly, I paint the man under the heavy cowl, including those perfect lips that ruined mine for anyone else. I'm obsessed with him. The doctors say he's nothing more than a hallucination caused by a mixture of head trauma and emergency pain medications. Now, something's changed, and my drawings are taking on a life of their own. Death is back. He wants another kiss. And he's not alone.

If a physicist wrote a fantasy novel this would be the book. Great world development, magic and science explained. Very very little character development and action. It's dry.

All writers know that when you create a new world there are many elements that you create and develop. But you dont show the reader. This development and research that you do is purely for you to see and know so that you can better create a story. This author showed her work.

The fact that this was labeled as a Romance/ Reverse Harem, is very misleading for what you get. The number one reasons why I enjoy reading reverse harems is because of the amount of character development that is required. You have to know the differences in between each person and what they bring to the group. Why they are needed. The way this book is written there is no attraction to build off of beyond the physical. There is no authentic connection in these relationships. There is no growth because there is nothing there. She has not written it she is forcing it.
