I have for over 20 years (since my brothers murder) been a student of all things "after". Growing up in New Orleans you have an open mind to things others might think are insane. For example I salt the entrances and burn sage in every corner of a new house before I move in. It wasn't until I moved to Texas that I learned this was not something that everyone did.
So much of this book was relatable for me, knowing the origins and accuracies of the little supernatural tidbits that laced each sub story made it feel more real. Like an insight onto a world we are not privy to, but excruciatingly curious about.
Much like Dante's Divine Comedy or Paradise Lost by Milton, this book leads you on a hero's quest not only through the obvious but also through the full gauntlet of fable conflicts;
Man vs Man
Man vs the world
Man vs himself
Good vs Evil
Heaven vs Hell
It is in every way a perfect amount of a great epic tale , a short metaphysics crash course, teen romance, and blockbuster tag lines that you would expect from a swanky demon played by Vince Vaughn or Bruce Campbell.
In all the artistry that is Lisa Medley she has taken this Homer-equé (not a real word, moving on) combination of characters and scenes, compacted them in to series format, and dashed them with Alphas , damsels , imagination and mythology, added a pinch of romance, a heaping spoonful of wit and banter, a little zest of angst and rebellion, stirred it all together and served it up in delicious little morsels that my mind devours like a fresh plate of French macaroons at a tea party, and my heart craves more of, also like a fresh plate of macaroons.
Off to read book 2 .....send macaroons.
How stinking amazing would it be, if you were different and alienated all your life just to find out that you are this awesome amazing being?? I want to meet Deacon Walker... it's so not fair! LOL
This is an amazing and creative book!
Ruth sees auras and because of that, she doesn't have a lot of social interaction that isn't negative. Deacon is a reaper and he has no aura- they are drawn together because as it turns out.... so is she!
Deacon is training her and in the process... you have to read it to see what happens- but you will never guess! I love that about Medley's writing. She zigs when you think the story is going to zag, you are on the edge of your seat from page 1!
This exciting paranormal romance brings us into the world of reapers. Once upon a time, only Grim was needed to collect the souls of the dead, but as the world's population grew, so did its need for more reapers. Now there are thousands, and there are reapers not only for humans for several other species as well. Interesting world building and solid ground to base the series upon.
Ruth's growth was fascinating as she learned about herself and her powers. Deacon was a delicious mystery. While I enjoyed both characters, and I wanted them together, I didn't understand how they were together. It happened so suddenly and oddly which didn't sync with their personalities.
A solid 3.5 read. A good beginning to the series. I will pick up more from Lisa Medley.
Though I kinda wish they had that hard conversation. The story was really cute and I enjoyed it. The book was worth the try and I would recommend it, but I think I am not going to continue on. I don't have a real close connection with any of the characters and I am not too interested in where they are going in life. By not reading the series I will leave the few unanswered questions lingering, but I have so many other books I can read at my disposal I don't think I'll miss this series. All that was needed was a little more character development and at least some reason for their love. Oh well.thinking about it, I am switching this from a 4 to a 3. It had me on the fence about several things.
However, the writing style was clever, and I did actually enjoy the entire book in the short of things. The story line was sound, if not maybe somewhat hard to follow for a second there. All-in-all, I would highly recommend this for anyone looking for a new take on reaping romance.
