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.

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.

New Release Review! Dark Alpha's Night (Dark World # 30 / Reapers #5) Donna Grant
Dark Alpha's Night: A Reaper Novel (Reapers) - Donna Grant

 

 

Dark Alpha’s Night is a brand new paranormal romance in the Reapers series featuring a brotherhood of elite assassins from New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant.

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...

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…

 

 

 

The Reapers are on a race to find the Half-Fae before their enemy finds them in this thrilling action packed Reaper story.

 

 

Donna Grant keeps her Dark World full of exciting and surprising twists, lots of adrenaline pumping action, thrilling suspense and fascinating characters and the Reapers are an exhilarating part of that world that brings more of the Dark World to life ensuring that readers can never get enough. Every time I read another book in this electrifying world I become a part of it and have a grand adventure that provides lots of fantasy material for sexy hunks and dreamy romance.

 

Dark Alpha’s Night is a brilliant story in the Reaper series, it is full of surprises and keeps readers on the edge of their seat in anticipation while providing readers with an excellent romance that has fiery sparks flying in every direction along with some emotional turbulence that adds depth to the story.  I was completely caught up in the fast paced and suspenseful plot from the very beginning and couldn’t put it down until I had read every last detail. I sure can’t wait to visit the Dark World again when Torched releases in May.

 

 

 

Dark Alpha’s Night is the 5th book in the Reaper series and #30 in the Dark World universe.

 

Torched is set to be released on May 29, 2018 #13 in the Dark Kings series and 32 in the Dark World Universe.

Dark Alpha's Night: A Reaper Novel (Reapers) - Donna Grant The next Reaper story was alright. I felt like they they came together quickly and once they did, it was kind of rushed. It had a novella feel to the sequence of events. It was Daire’s story so I expected and wanted more. He is the Reaper that has been following Rhi so I feel like I’ve gotten to know him the, best so for his story I wanted it more elaborate like the Dark King’s books. I wanted it to have highs and lows, passion and adventure, and more development. I did like the character of Ettie and the concept of the sword of Erith’s. What is happening to Death is adding more to the overall plot of the series and I want more from her and Cael. I did enjoy the story but it doesn’t stand out like some others in the Dark universe.  This was an enjoyable read, but because of it being Daire's story I just wanted more.

Assassins ahoy
The Reapers - John Connolly

peripherally a Charlie Parker story, this is more about Louis and Angel; mostly about Louis and his past and what happens when that catches up with them both. 

 

A wealthy recluse sends Louis and Angel on a mission to a town where things aren't as they seem and where they find themselves in serious danger. Charlie Parker has to come to their rescue but things are quite perilous and survival won't be easy.  This will make and break relationships.

 

Not so much of the supernatural but a lot of assassins and killers being brutal to each other.  I liked Willie, the mechanic and his story drew me in (as I'm sure the author intended).

 

There was a great piece: "When the three men had gone, Brooker sat silently at his kitchen table while his wife rolled dough behind him, and tried to ignore the waves of disapproval that were breaking upon his back." (p. 336 in my edition) I liked the imagery.

 

There were some very gory parts to this... not for the squeamish, the relish some of the characters had for killing was chilling.

 

Falls into Murder most foul, probably serial/spree killer (several of those in the story); In the Dark, Dark woods. I intended it for American Horror Story, it's more the horrible things people can do to each other but I'm going to count it.
