Overall, this book was great. I couldn't put it down and it was well written. I highly recommend it. The story takes place in the future, after a Great War destroyed most of the world as we know it. This story takes place in the city of Alba, where citizens are kept protected within the city and are not allowed to leave. Within the city, there are different castes of people. The main character, Aerina, is part of the Patrician caste which is one of the most elite castes, but Aerina often feels limited by it. The books opens with her secretly dressing as an individual of a lower caste so that she can participate in a group dance for a city celebration event. At this event, someone in the dance troupe attempts to kill the consul (the leader of the city), and the main Reaper (Reapers are in charge of protecting the city by any means necessary), Marcus, kills all of the members of the dance troupe except for Aerina, because she saved his life once before and he knows she wasn't guilty. Aerina has always been attracted to everything outside of her world, including Marcus, who is a man of many secrets and few words. He is trained to be an assassin and protect the city, and so his demeanor is extremely controlled and he shows little emotion. As Aerina enters into his life, things start to feel a bit more messy for him emotionally. Aerina and Marcus' relationship develops throughout the book, as they both attempt to uncover a certain threat to the city of Alba. Their differences are both what drive them apart at times but also bring them closer together.

The chemistry between Aerina and Marcus was built up throughout the book and quite intense. The character of Marcus was especially interesting, and I think there is likely a lot more to him that we have yet to learn in future books.

I wasn't sure what to expect as I'm not a big romance reader, but I love dystopian fiction so I thought I would give it a try. The book was very fast paced and I had trouble putting it down. The main character made me angry at times due to her seeming immaturity, which seems just what you would expect from someone who had lived the somewhat sheltered life that she had, but I enjoyed following her (at times dangerous) antics, and was always wondering what would happen next. I loved the descriptions of Alba and can't wait to read more when the next book comes out! All in all a great book by this new author.

Lindsey Will semius did a fantastic job of adding romance to a dystopian thriller. Set in the future where segregation is the norm and rules within castes are expected to be followed with out questions, our heroine emerges, determined to follow her own path regardless of what obstacles are the own in her path. Hot and intense, this book will not let you set it down!

I enjoyed this one! I didn’t know what to expect, but Reaper was a great surprise! The world-building was intriguing and complemented the storyline. Aerina and Marcus were well defined and had nice chemistry. All in all, Reaper turned out to be a nice escape read with a strong romance that kept me turning the pages.

What a fantastic book! I loved reading about Marcus and Aerina and the Virmortus. I loved practically everything about this book. This is such an underrated book that more people NEED to check out.

Be prepared, because the story starts with a bang. You jump right into the action from the very first page. This is a fast-paced story that never had a dull moment. I didn't even realize I had reached the end until I flipped the last page on my kindle.

The story is told in third person and set in a dystopian world. Our main characters, Aerina and Marcus, must discover the truth about Alba before it is too late. The romance, mystery, and action was executed flawlessly and I am very impressed.

"Nothing matters but your job"

Marcus is the deadly Alpha Virmortus, who is a combination of an assassin a, a commander, and the police. He likes to be in control of everything-the Virmortus, his emotions, and even Aerina. But he is not your typical "I am male, hear-me-roar" alpha. He doesn't try to control everything about Aerina, just when it comes to her safety. In other words, he doesn't suffocate her, just protects her. Marcus is actually a vulnerable guy. He doesn’t feel worthy of love and Aerina, because of his past. He struggles with his loyalty to the Consul and Alba and his need to protect Aerina. Marcus is a very complex character and he felt very real to me.

"This is all your fault"

It is very difficult to find a female lead that is strong and smart, but doesn’t come off as stubborn and naive. Aerina is that type of character. She doesn’t cower and hide from the truth, but she tries to unravel it.

I enjoyed this book very much. When I got home from work I could hardly wait to read it. The characters in the story drew me right in and I found myself reading one chapter after another without paying attention to the time and how late it was. I am so eager to read another book from this author. I highly recommend it.
