From New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant comes another action-packed installment in her thrilling Reaper series, featuring a brotherhood of elite assassins who wage war on the Fae at Death's behest—and the women who dare to love them.
There is no escaping a Reaper. I am an elite assassin, part of a brotherhood that only answers to Death. And when Death says your time is up, I’m coming for you…
I’ve been a part of so many different worlds I’m not sure who I am or where I fit in anymore. Honestly, with everything I’ve been through, being called across realms and encountering the beautiful Druid who instantly captures my attention—and my heart—shouldn’t have surprised me. But it did. Not as much as discovering how it feels to brush against her magic, however. Now, we must navigate these new waters and fight against our latest threat, hoping that our combined power and that of our allies is enough to defeat our foe. Because the Fae Others want to end the Reapers and take over the realm, and their leader is one of the most formidable enemies we’ve ever faced. The battle won’t be easy, but with this strong, resilient mortal by my side and some help from our friends, it’s a fight I’m more than willing to enter—as long as it means she’s by my side. Forever.
I’m stoked! We finally get Balladyn‘s story. I wasn’t sure we would get one with all the ups and downs with this outstanding character. He went from shiny hero to evil villain to fierce Reaper and his journey runs through more than one series by this exceptional author. Balladyn was always a compelling character whether good or evil. And always a sexy beast. He’s had so many challenges and there are a few more in this story when something connects him with the new leader of the Skye Druids, Rhona. She’s a beauty with Druid magic but she is not yet comfortable with her new role. Her story starts out with a painful incident that calls on Balladyn to come to her rescue. From there mystery ensues when the culprit(s) are unknown. Is it the evil Others or a villain closer to home? And that is only one mystery in the story. It’s full of intrigue, danger and drama that calls for friends to aid Rhona, along with the Reapers, to uncover the ones behind the attacks. I loved seeing the old favorites from another series with the Warriors and the MacLeod Druids. So many fantastic supernaturals in one place! In addition to the terrific suspense and mystery, there is the swoon worthy romance that blossoms between Balladyn and Rhona. The fierce protective streak that drives Balladyn is panty melting, then add in his sexy heat and passion, and the beautiful Rhona’s is all in with the hunky Reaper. So good! Another two of my favorites, Aisling and Xaneth, also show up for the big fight. This is an excellent continuation of this Reaper series full of fierce supernaturals, male and female, intense danger, violent battles, evil enemies, and a superb good vs evil element. Then romance ain’t bad either. In fact, it is deliciously sexy with a couple that is on fire but are also supportive and protective of each other. Absolute perfection! I can’t wait for the next installment in this terrific series. This one is a must read!
I was excited that Balladyn got his story! Ooooh this book had it all—Quick pacing, good romance, action, interesting backstory and conflict. The characters were well developed and well written. The story kept me reading into the late night. I loved Balladyn and Rhona’s journey! Bring on the next book! Huge thanks to Donna Grant for providing an ARC.
