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…
This is one in a series of stories being released in the “Nocturne Falls Universe” and I’m not going to lie …. when I saw there was a reaper story I was excited. I personally have a soft spot for them, for some strange reason, so I was particularly pleased to see this appear.
Overall this was an enjoyable read. There were a few little things that bothered me about it but nothing that stopped the main story from being a good one. This is slightly longer than some of the other “universe” books and I think that works in its favor allowing you to get more involved with the characters.
A couple of little twists to keep you on your toes, a good couple that you are routing for, a bad guy you can instantly dislike, it definitely fits the criteria for a good read even though at times it didn’t have the complete Nocturne Falls feel that I have had from some of the others, (which could in part be because we have met Nocturne Falls reapers and this reaper version was different) I wasn’t disappointed.
A solid 4 stars from me!
