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 because of that it actually made it a very difficult to review. Had this just been sent to me as a new story it would probably rate at least a 5 stars – because the basic story telling etc is good and I would want to know what happened to the characters. That being said this is supposed to be a part of a world that I am really familiar with and the story just didn’t quite fit. The new characters didn’t quite fit the rules, and even worse the characters that I already know and love just didn’t feel right to me. Hence the 3 star rating. Normally having the story sort of unfinished doesn’t bother me either, but in the Nocturne Falls world one of the things we love is that the individual stories, even the short, are complete and you are left feeling satisfied.
Overall this IS a good story, but because of where it is supposed to be …. it just didn’t quite work for me …. which is a shame because I think the author seems really talented. In this case I feel that maybe the story was forced to fit her characters, and it just didn’t quite all come together.
A 3 stars from me but ONLY because of the Nocturne Falls element. I am actually tempted to look up other stuff by this author after reading this because I think I would enjoy it.
