In this tale, Trosper has managed to effortlessly weave together elements of various mythologies and use that setting to bring to life very real and complex characters. Jo (don’t call her Josephine) is a non-typical girl who finds out that all the things she thought about herself and her family weren’t completely on the up and up. Turns out she’s actually a Reaper, one of those charged with leading the souls of the deceased to the river Styx.
However, it turns out that Jo’s only gotten half the story. The truth is even stranger and more dangerous than she could have imagined.
The pacing of the story’s plot is a perfect blend of quick action and slower transitions. As usual, Trosper knows how to tell a story and has perfected her ability to sink her hooks into the reader’s attention and hold it for the duration.
The only negative I can find in this book is that I have to wait for the second book to come out so I can get back to this wonderful story.
Moreover, Trosper manages to put us smack dab inside the heroine's head and never lets it slip. Jo, short for Josephine, is an ordinary if extremely stubborn young woman who has never suspected anything supernatural about her life. But when her mother dies, she discovers just how wrong she was. From her unusual parentage to her decision to join the ranks of Reapers (guides who help souls to the appropriate afterlife), she has to embrace a new worldview which she does with a only a smidge of kicking and a good dollop of sarcastic snark. She is tough and vulnerable at the same time; you can't help but love her. As for her counterpart and reluctant partner-in-crime Caius, he has a Darcy-like haughtiness that just begs for a comeuppance. The two mains play well off each other, with a great deal of enjoyable spark. I bet their relationship will bear further watching.
Trosper's mix of angels, demons, and older gods is fun and fresh. If you love paranormal romances with a strong sense of snark and humanity, Unveiled should definitely be on your TBR list.

"Given the nature of mortals, I think it is safe to say you would be better off hunted by a demon-born than falling into the hands of mortals who realize you do not age."
"There was something vaguely animal in the features and there was no mistaking the fangs. I hadn't imagined those."
"Mom was the tether that connected me to the world and without her, I was just drifting on the breeze."
I like how the author gave the main female character such strength of character and how she just seems to accept her new destiny and she rolls with the punches. The relationship between her and Caius was filled with tension at times, but they seemed to like each other enough to protect each other. I don't want to spoil the book so I will leave it there.
From the beginning, I felt drawn into the story as Jo ("don't call me Josephine") sits at her mother's deathbed, sees her mother's spirit accompanied by an angel (reaper), and bam! She's always felt different from others while growing up, and now she knows why! She's half-angel, half-mortal. And then... she is drawn into another world, just a little different to ours, as she comes to grips with her heritage. Before long, she is embroiled in something even bigger... all because her angel father couldn't keep it in his pants!
But I won't say any more here. The story did seem slow for a bit, but it soon picked up and left my brain feeling withdrawals every time I put the book down to return to real life. The pace picked up, and I enjoyed it enough to wish I had book 2 with me.
Why are you still reading this review. Buy the book, kiss your loved ones and tell them you love them, lock them out of the room, and read it now before you miss out!
Thank you to A.D. Trosper for sending me a review copy. I loved it.
