The Reaping of souls is a task that encompasses all of humanity. In carrying out that task, Lyssa cared little for the souls of evil that came under her care. That is, until she is given a gift. A gift that would require a price from her that may be more than she can pay.
As she learns of the life of Deacon, can she see what he is, what he does, and still love him?
This book deals with real subjects in a fictional way. These subjects are difficult, and in many ways horrible. In writing of these subjects I do not seek to condone or promote them, but to represent them accurately. As such, the descriptions of events may be “triggers” for some. Evil is portrayed as evil. While this book deals with love, it is not a love story. This book is not for everyone. It is written for adults and deals with adult subjects. Do not read this book if you are under the age of consent in your region or country.
What a roller coaster ride of emotions.
As I started reading the first few chapters of this book, I got so angry with what was happening in the scenes that I wasn't sure I could finish it. The main character Lyssa was interesting and so I perservered. I am thankful that I did. The story took me on such an emotional ride. I, like Lyssa, found it difficult to find anything redeeming or possible to empathize with such a horrific character like Deacon. Eventually as the story went on I did just as Lyssa did. As I read this book I went from anger to ugly crying to joy. Kudos to Riley Bryant for being able to evoke such emotions in a story. I am looking forward to the next one.
