You may find yourself cheering for those you you never thought you might cheer for and wishing ill of those you thought were good. You may laugh and you may cry. I promise you will not be disappointed.
Thank you Ms. Mcentire for writing a story that all ages can enjoy. The characters are fully formed with detailed histories, the environment feels so real you can almost touch the Never. I am SO ready for the next story.
I will be sharing this with my family so they can enjoy it as much as I did.
I can't wait to read this series again and see how it all fits together now that I know how the whole thing ends.
Now that her mom has moved on and Piotr left with his own issues to resolve, Wendy continues to help spirits move into the light. However, she must deal with a maternal family of Reapers she only recently learned existed; these relatives are unhappy and envious of her Lightbringer skill that is more powerful than any of theirs. She also believes she must stop the Walkers from eating any more of the youthful innocent Lost. Finally with the Riders disbanded and the White Lady gone, the Council takes control of Next. With no one covering her back, Wendy becomes a target by those who covet her power.
The second Lightbringer fantasy is a terrific thriller that expands the McEntyre mythos in surprising but enjoyable ways. The storyline starts slow but fascinating with the hospital banter setting the Ghost Whisperer tone before accelerating into a faster than light tale. Readers will relish Reaper as no respite for weary Wendy as several adversaries want to dine on her soul or pass her through the light.
Lightbringer introduces us to Wendy, Piotr and his gang of Lost children. Sound familiar? K.D. McEntire's modern day Peter Pan reveals a world just beyond our own where spirits and monsters dwell until they go into the light. I loved Lightbringer most for its originality.
In Reaper, McEntire, takes the game to a whole new level. Gone are the kid gloves. The world her characters knew is changing and now everyone is in danger. There were so many OMG moments in this book, from backstory reveals to betrayals and discoveries. You think you have a grasp on a character or relationship and then BAM, the story evolves right before your eyes. It's refreshing to read a book that doesn't give up all its secrets from the start.
When I asked my daughter what she thought of Reaper, this was her response: "I need the next book. NOW!" Yep. That about sums it up for me too.
I didn't have the chance to read the first book in this series but the author does a good job of catching the reader up to speed. This story is well written, the characters interesting and engaging but it just wasn't the book for me. I DO think that fans of the first book, Lightbringer, will thoroughly enjoy it!
