Holly Dent is one overworked Reaper. After receiving orders from the Reaper’s Guild, she’s arrived in the beautiful Nocturne Falls for her next assignment—to assist the passing of one Max Hyland. She quickly realizes he’s devilishly handsome, wickedly charming and, Immortal. Immune to her magic, he has only one real power—not dying!
Careful with his heart Max is resigned to remaining alone for all eternity—until the beautiful Reaper appears on his doorstep. Even though she’s bent on helping him pass from this life to the next, he can’t help wanting to learn more about her.
Torn between her growing affection for Max and completing her assignment, Holly calls upon her old mentor for help. However, as she and Max become closer, she learns that her former teacher has plans of his own, for taking the soul of an Immortal gives a Reaper great power—enough to destroy the Guild once and for all. Holly and Max must find a way to defeat him, for, if they fail, Max’s life is forfeit. Magic, intrigue and romance ensue—when it comes to Reaping the Immortal…
Don't Fear The Reaper
I loved this book. I'm partial to reaper stories. The characters were so much fun and well developed. I loved the bird, Artemis. Who is also a witch. I wish she would get her own book and possibly a way out of having to be a bird. Max was so swoon worthy. Ooh and I loved the Underworld. This was a wonderful book!
Not sure where to start
I was really excited for a Nocturnal Falls Universe story! There wasn't any of the town I've come to love within the story outside of the name. I read the entire book but I did skip around in some sections that felt too detailed. I'm a fan of reaper stories and I enjoyed the description of her bird once she changed forms... That's about it.
