Book Description

Warning! Explicit language and situations better suited to an adult reading audience.

Contains material that may be offensive to some readers.

Bonus material included is Reaper I: The Beginning (the Prologue to the series).


Samantha Bennet is not your normal, average, ordinary teenage girl.

She has a secret.

A very deadly secret she calls...the Dark Thing.

The Dark Thing saved her life a short time covered her body, armed her and gave her the courage, senses and strength to hunt down the three men who attacked her.

That fateful night, she went from victim to victor in bloodshed that not only seemed to nourish the Dark Thing, but ensured that those vile men could never hurt anyone ever again.

But now what?

The Dark Thing is still there, lying dormant under her skin, unless she wills it forth. It is a weapon, it is a shield, it augments strength and has a hunger for the blood of the guilty.

What is it for?

Where did it come from?

What does it want next?

Exactly how is she supposed to keep it a secret?

And how does it fit into her plans?

Especially now that she feels that its her civic duty to hunt the night for the most vile scum that the City can offer?

After all, the Dark Thing, well - it seems as though it needs to be fed...

Reaper I: The Beginning
Reaper II: Neophyte
Reaper III: Rookies (brief M/F sexuality)
Reaper IV: Daddy
Reaper V: To Skins (brief M/F sexuality)
Reaper VI: Lust (brief F/F sexuality)
...many more in the series to come!

1.0 out of 5 stars Reaper II January 19, 2012
By amh858
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
To be honest, I could not get too far into this as I felt 'The Dark Thing' (not the 'idea', but just the phrase itself) was becoming overly repetitive. I understand this girl is testing this 'thing' out, but with the pages I covered it was overly redundant and I lost patience with it.

I see this story line as a good idea, but I feel it is overly rough like it is the first draft and still requires a few tweaks.

Again, this was free for the Prime Members, but I would not go out of my way to purchase after reading a sample.

3.0 out of 5 stars Still Has My Interest. Still Needs An Editor January 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really like the idea of this story (as you can see from my review of her 1st book). She obviously knows how to create characters and plot. My hang up is that without an editor to iron out some serious repetition issues it's hard to fall in love with the books. LOVE the covers. That's the reason I grabbed the 1st one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed January 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I gave the first in the series 5 stars. Yes, Holt is new and therefore inexperienced in such things as warnings to potential readers on length and content. I feel a little grace and constructive criticism is polite when she clearly put effort into the product.

I wish I could be as generous this second time as I was the first time.

The language is still explicit. This needs to be warned. While I didn't like the explicit language in the first one, it at least was appropriately used if you get my meaning and I barely tolerated it. This was just explicit for the sake of being explicit. I will not be reading the third when it comes out.

I know the main character is a 15 year old girl and therefore not a rocket scientist, but how she decides to test out her second skin seemed beyond stupid, especially when she rejects other tests.

Major editing in regards to content and pacing needed to happen here. The first part is annoyingly repetitive of the same thoughts and concepts over and over and over again, while the second part breezes through years. I'm curious why the main character wants to be a cop when clearly she understands the concept of being careful in your area. She's bringing plenty of closure to victims as a vigilante and The Dark Thing leads her to baddies, so why the career choice? These are questions that are infuriating because they point out flaws in the world/plot.

I always try to find something positive, so here it is: the overall concept is intriguing and this installment brings up questions of possible origins of The Dark Thing. They are interesting and whet the appetite for more, yet for the above reasons I will not be continuing the saga.

Good idea for a story. Should let people know that Reaper I is all repeated in Reaper II.

Needs editing for correct hyphen and word usage.

More About the Author

Born in British Columbia, Canada in 1979, raised in Manitoba, Amanda Mary-Margaret Holt is the oldest of four children. She began writing at an early age, stories that always seemed to be of one paranormal genre or another. Sometimes these stories thrilled her teachers and parents...other times, they served only to horrify.

With no formal post-secondary training in English or literature studies, Amanda credits various teachers (Mr. Elliott and Mr. Ortwein, for example), her family, and her dear friend Ms. T with fostering her growth and development as an author.

Amanda worked a variety of jobs as a younger adult: she was a graphic artist, a bartender, an electrician's apprentice, a security guard, a graphic artist, a waitress, an adult novelty clerk, and at one point, even an Electrolux sales person. She recieved her Computer Programmer/Analyst diploma in 2003 and is now pursuing Bachelor of Nursing studies at the fourth-year level.

While dark fantasy is her favourite genre to write in, she has tried her hand at both mainstream erotica and contemporary romance and enjoyed those as well. So long as her heroine is a woman who is brave enough to face her darkest fears and bold enough to realize her innermost fantasies, therein lies a tale that Miss Holt aspires to tell.
