Publisher's Summary

Hidden abilities, haunting memories, and one confused girl. 

I’m a reaper. Death should come naturally to me, but it doesn’t. And the abilities I am able to conjure are forbidden by my kind. My parents try to hide my abilities, but when the elders assign my first target, they order my parents to stay back. Now I’m on my own, with no one to protect me, no idea what I’m doing, and no control over the powers I’m supposed to keep hidden. 

I should have known this would blow up in my face. 

My family name is ruined, and I have to fix what I’ve ripped. I’m not sure I have what it takes. The fate of my entire kind is on my shoulders, and I’m the only one who can make things right. But if I mess up again, it won’t just be my family that I break - our entire world will be ruined. 

Tomb Raider meets Touched in Reaper of Earth, a paranormal listen for those who love a dark twist.

Different

I am used to reading about certain types of reapers. This author did something different that I have not come across. I'll admit I did find that hard to listen to only because I have known them one way and it did not feel real but there are twist which I was expecting because the main character who is a reaper is different.
My only negative is that I found she did not try hard enough at times. I felt she gave up to easily. Of course this could only be me who thinks this way.
Would I still recommend it? I would actually. If you like YA books about reapers with twists and turns than this is for you.

Intriguing take on reapers

This story is a fun YA with lots of surprising takes on reapers, demons, witches and more, with magic, action and intrigue. It has vivid characters and lead smoothly into book 2. I found the narrator a bit monotone and stilted but she does a fairly nice job of differentiating between characters and her voice seems to fit the main character well, which is good since it’s written in first person. A light, fantastical YA and not too long of an audiobook—perfect to listen while at work, commuting or doing chores around the house.

Interesting storyline

I like the concept of this story. It seems a little rushed at times but it is still a fun listen while working. The narration was very slow to me and I had to speed it up to get into it. Overall I can’t wait to see how the story progresses and hopefully our FMC grows a backbone. This is only book one so there is plenty of space for her to grow.

Just okay

I wasn't blown away by this book. While the world seems interesting enough from what's revealed, the author doesn't really spend much time giving us the lay of the land. Like, we find out as an oh-by-the-way at one point that there's magic, and later that there are different dimensions. While I can understand not wanting to spend page upon page just explaining ad nauseum, these revelations felt pretty abrupt to me when they happened, and they were really important to the plot. The story made sense and was interesting, and you wanted to root for the main character. But I also found myself wishing frequently that she would stand up for herself, as she spent most of the book as everyone's doormat. And boy are most of the other characters really hateful to her, literally.

All that said, I do plan to continue the series to find out what happens next, and to see the main character hopefully come in to her own.

I received this as a review copy in exchange for an honest review.

Unique Reaper Series

This series has a lot of potential and I was in between a 3 and 4 stars for the rating. I liked the main character but I thought she was quite immature for an almost 20 years old. In my opinion, a little more character development and world building would have made a huge difference on the story. Christina’s actions did not make any sense to me. Her behavior was impulsive and she did not reason through anything to figure out the best outcome or consequences.

I like that the story included not only reapers but witches and demons. Although, the other supernaturals were on the odd side. I definitely would have liked if the story had slowed down a bit with more world and character building so that some of their actions would have made more sense. It was a lot of information with little explanation or reasoning.

Her parents are so strange that I’m not even sure they cared about her at all. Charlie was another character I did not understand. On one hand he hated her and the next time he is saving her. I felt like there was something missing in between the change of heart.

Narration was ok. The narrator differentiated between the characters which is great but a bit monotone at times.

There is a lot that is left hanging and I found it a bit too convenient how everything falls in place just right for her to complete her quest given by the strange council of reapers. I’m hoping the next books will explain what is behind the scenes.

Overall it is an entertaining tale and I listened to it at one seating. I’m looking forward to finding out what will happen next.

GOOD READ!

I enjoyed it! The narration was good. The author did a good job with the character builds and plot. This was my first book by this author and I look forward to reading more of her books. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Interesting Take on Reapers

This was a fun story with an interesting take on reapers. I did feel the MC, Christina, acted younger than she was. I think it could have benefited by her being almost 18 instead of almost 20, or acting a little older.

The narrator isn't my favourite but she did do a good job differentiating characters. Overall it was a good listen.

Supernatural Reaper Series

**3.5 Stars**
Christina was born a Reaper, a calling she has struggled with her entire life since her natural gift is to restore life not take it. When she is given her final training task to reaper a soul by herself, she fails. To make up for her mistake, Christina needs to go on a mission she isn't prepared for with consequences she can't even anticipate.

I was a little confused about the main character being twenty, I assumed this was an adult urban fantasy story, but it read like a YA and the main character seemed like a younger teen. The character lives with her parents, who are very involved in every aspect of her life, she is missing her best friend and smuggles people including a cute boy into her room to hide, and basically struggling with growing up and accepting her future like most teens. I think I would have liked this a little better if it was a YA paranormal and the main character was like the 16 year old she acted like.

The story had a lot going on in it, be it all kinds of supernatural like Reapers who take souls due to die, demons who make deals, witches who eat children, just to name a few. There was a large cast of unique, interesting characters that helped the main character develop more personality with each interaction since she was fairly bland left on her own. There was so much crammed into the pages, making it non-stop action as well as all the angst and drama you can imagine. I was not sure who to root for in the story or who the main character should trust so every encounter was fraught with suspicion and turmoil. The story was something I read in one day and the ending of this book caused more mysteries than it answered to be prepared to need the next installment.

Enjoyable

Very enjoyable for the start to what seems to be an interesting story found myself in-grossed in the heroines every move and blasted this book out in a day

Narration was very good and had great characterisation amongst the different scenes and people portrayed by Shelley Reece.

Story and plot by Jen L Grey has got some great potential to set out to be a cracker of a story line and has left me eager for more
