Listen up, my RH lovers, this book was completely f**king unique. The Grim Reaper, a lion shifter, a sin-eater, this book had so much going for it. The world was beautifully crafted and utterly fresh. This felt like an urban-fantasy but none of the content reflected anything but pure f**king supernatural goodness. It was dark and badass, fast paced and fluid.
I'm O B S E S S E D with Dami, she's everything I adore in a heroine. She's badass and independent, confident, comfortable with her sexuality, she takes what she wants and struggles with vulnerability but she doesn't let her bring her fears bring her down. She always gets back up and tries again.
I'm so excited to see where Albany takes this series because I'm INVESTED. This ended with a HFN but clearly hinted towards then next installment. I can't wait.

- Emotional connection with the MC
- Unique plot in a sea of meh
- Lack of world building, there was some, but definitely not enough..... even as a cliffhanger, this was just rude
- Lack of character development, again, some but not enough...I understand drawing out connection for a better story but it cheated this one rather than shuffling it to the next
- Lack of relationship building, there was some but it wasn't at all realistic...... hormones make you overlook the fact that you could've had friends, family, a reason for everything for the past 30 years and all you do is yell once? Nope, not buying it
I want to see where this goes, but if it doesn't drastically improve as far as the story telling and craft, I'm finished. That sounds harsh, and I don't mean to be mean, but if the authour doesn't grow, why should I come back?
And here’s what I did like:
• Beautiful, descriptive writing.
• totally original idea unlike anything I have ever read.
• Super hot sex that was extremely graphic even though it was somehow magically tastefully written.
• pretty action packed pacing
•. Bad ass FMC
• The premise was fantastic. She is a former human who eats sins. She has a harem of male monsters. And she wakes up every night to be visited by monsters. (But none of them were really monsters...)
Here’s what I did NOT like:
• insanely confusing plot line that doesn’t deliver any sort of logical sequencing of detail inclusion.
• lots of loose ends and unanswered questions in what is supposedly a standalone book.
• lack of character development. I didn’t feel like I had really gotten to know any of them even after reading the book twice.
• too many names thrown at you from the beginning that are hard to keep track of especially when they aren’t developed throughout.
By the end of the book I was so confused I had to go back and read it again. There were definitely some things that became clearer on the second pass, but there were still a lot of unanswered questions. I spent the first half of the book wondering what the heck was even going on. What was she? Who are these people? And who’s who?
And I get it. Some people love a complicated plot line that keeps you guessing throughout the entire story until the end. But what I didn’t appreciate is that I was still guessing even after finishing it… Twice!
This writer is obviously very talented and I will be interested to read her other work. And if there’s another book after this one that continues the story? I will totally read it. Mostly to see if I can figure out what the hell was even going on. If all my initial questions are tied up, I will certainly come back and update this review.
I gave it three stars because even though I didn’t really like the book, I loved the story idea and I really like this author’s writing style. I can also see how other people would certainly appreciate it, so is it worth reading? That’s hard to say. It depends on what you like. I say give it a shot and decide for yourself.
This book is so well written and I can't wait to see where this story leads. The plot and character development go so well together that it felt seamless. This is a new favorite for sure.

Would recommend and will be reading other books by the same author!
Our main character doesn't really know what she is (no one tells her, or us)
But somehow a lot of deus ex machina (explained twice, like explaining it twice is going to help?) gets us into the reverse harem setup...which is used once as a plot device, then dropped.
The boys are...1 which makes lots of sense, and two that seem really really random.
The only depth our main heroine has is that she creeped out her parents as a kid and feels really scarred and resentful of them as an "abandoned" 30 year old, living off some trust fund in a house in the woods.
Is this really someone's escapist fantasy? Sleeping all day, waiting around all night to be entertained, and doing nothing with your life while burning through your parents' money?
The plot makes very little sense, even if we ignore the awkwardly tacked on reverse harem elements.
Imagine you live in a small town, on its outskirts, and go to its club like once a month. Now you go multiple times a week and make demands (direct and indirect) on its owner. Somehow, this turns no heads.
The heroine picks up new superpowers as the plot needs it.
Someone dies and comes back to life
Angry man is Angry and destroys furniture and is just generally bad at the job he is supposed to be doing, which he somehow takes orders on from our heroine, who is an underachieving shut-in.
The last of the reverse harem scenes feels like "whoopsie, reaching the end of the book, gotta throw this in somewhere".
2 stars because i managed to kind of read it (skimming was involved), and some of the base elements of the story were new ideas, which I think is worth something.
Still, her heritage, or lack there of, is such a great hook that I’ll be checking out the next book just to see what happens next. Plus that cover art is gorgeous.
