Halloween Bingo Catchup.
Beyond the Empire (The Indranan War Book 3) - K.B. Wagers
Murder In Thrall - Anne Cleeland
A Dangerous Place: A Maisie Dobbs Novel - Jacqueline Winspear
The Last Namsara - Kristen Ciccarelli
The Reapers - John Connolly

So far this month I have read 5 books.

Some of them are easy to put into a square and some are difficult:

 

Last Namsara falls somewhat into Doomsday; it involves stories so I think A Grimm Tale would be pretty apt but it is about Dragons so Cryptozology is the best slot.

 

A Dangerous Place is set in Gibraltar which I'm pretty sure counts as a Small Town, it could also have been Genre Suspense, just about Fear the Deep (she arrives on a Liner from India) and most of this series qualifies as Cosy, the first few pages are quite Gothic, Maisies mental health is not the best here and that's most of the terror in the tale... but Terror in a Small Town is the best fit.

 

Beyond the Empire is more space opera than anything else, the only thing I have that it fits into is New Release 

 

Murder in Thrall falls into Genre Suspense, Supernatural a little, Modern Noir and Gothic; I'm going to use Genre: Suspense here.

 

The Reapers has elements of Genre Suspense, Modern Noir and Supernatural; you could also argue Southern Gothic and Terror in a Small Town (where the final battle takes place and most of the gore) I think I'll go with Modern Noir here.

 

Feel free to tell me I'm wrong.

Release Week Review! Dark Alpha's Hunger (Reapers #6 / Dark World Universe) Donna Grant!
Dark Alpha's Hunger - Donna Grant

 

 

Dark Alpha's Hunger is the sixth paranormal romance novel in New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant's Reapers series featuring a brotherhood of elite assassins who wage war on the Fae at Death's behest--and the women who change their hearts.

 

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…

 

Where Death leads, I follow. Nothing will stop me from my duty – not even the darkness that claims me. It’s the music that leads me from the dark, returning me to my brethren and a new foe that has risen. Learning who hunts Thea could be the key to unraveling what we need to know to defeat our enemy. The Half-Fae’s music stirs a passion within me that I’ve never known. For her, I will break my vow of silence. For her…I will risk everything.

 

 


“Dark Alpha’s Hunger” is an intense and gripping thrill of a read. I have been waiting to discover Eoghan’s fate ever since he was ripped from the Reapers by Bran and I have to say that his story is one satisfying read. Not only does Eoghan get his story but Thea is a strong and fascinating heroine that is perfect for Eoghan and their first meeting is a spectacular and unique one. The chemistry is electrical and the passion is hot but the romance is full of danger and emotional turmoil that will have to be overcome before they can reach for the HEA and the fast paced, smooth flowing plot is thrilling, full of excitement and suspense that keeps readers turning the pages. The story is further enhanced with secrets being revealed and surprising twists that ensure readers want to know every last detail and of course ensures that they come back for more.

 

This fascinating world just keeps getting better and while the story was a bit on the short side, Donna Grant fit quite a bit of information, excitement and suspense in and blended it all together seamlessly so that reader get quite the story. I loved “Dark Alpha’s Hunger and definitely can’t wait to read the next book, especially after all the twists and plot reveals that took place in this one.

Loved It!
Dark Alpha's Night: A Reaper Novel (Reapers) - Donna Grant

To some Fae, I am their worst nightmare. For I do Death’s bidding. But for all our strength and skill, a powerful enemy has risen up. Finding Ettie could change everything. The Half-Fae is our one chance. She’s sharp and strong and fierce. She steals my breath every time I'm near her. And looking into her eyes is like a bolt of lightning right through me. She’s what I’ve been waiting for my long, dark existence. But for us to be together, we must first stay alive…

This is the next book in Donna Grant’s Reaper series. This Reaper take is about Daire, the reaper we’ve met throughout Rhi’s storyline in the dragon series. Now that he’s back with the reapers, he starts to go a little stir crazy until a clue on their enemy’s next target. Even though I’d been secretly hoping he’d find happiness with Rhi, Ettie didn’t disappoint. I loved seeing a much more in depth look into him and getting to know Ettie. Very good book. I can’t wait for the next book in the series. I highly recommend.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Reapers Spoiler Free Review
Reapers - Bryan Davis

 

Reapers is the first book in an action-packed sci-fi/fantasy series by Bryan Davis. In an almost post-apocalyptic world the hero Phoenix attempts to serve his reaper sentence. However, problems thwart him from every angle and force him to either stay true to his morals or abandon them all together.

 

When first reading the synopsis for Reapers I thought it was a really interesting and unique idea. I think a lot of people, including myself, are fascinated with the idea of what comes after death and this novel explores that. Well, at least it explores how your soul gets from your body to its final resting place.

 

Davis took a spin on the typical reaper tale and made the Reapers in his book a staple in society. They weren’t imaginary symbols of death that children were scared of in the dark. They were mythical creatures of death who had once been regular people, forced to serve the reaper sentence.

 

The character dynamic was something I really enjoyed in the book. I fell in love with our hero, Phoenix right away (how could I not with such a great name?). The other characters sprinkled in through out the chapters. Davis developed each character in such a way that was illuminating as well as intriguing. Little details would be spread out here and there about each character, similar to a treasure map, where the ‘X’ marked the spot when you finally, satisfyingly understood the character.

 

The plot in Reapers flowed well with actions at the beginning of the novel coming back to haunt the characters at the end. The story had fast-paced scenes and steadier ones that allowed my heart beat to slow and rest. All in all, the plot of Reapers was a true moving story with a hundred different pieces that could have fallen apart if they weren’t so expertly crafted. The plot tied the novel together nicely and created an ending while also leaving things unanswered for the rest of the series.

 

I would recommend this novel to anyone who is fascinated with life and death, the future, or reapers as themselves. This book might just become one of your favorites.

Disclaimer: I was given a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.
