My Rating: êêêê
My Review: This series can get a little confusing because there are different kinds of ghost, but it’s pretty good otherwise. It’s a unique Reaper series. I love most of the characters, but I don’t care for Piotr. He can’t remember his past, and I’m not sure how to say his name. Peter? Pee-tree? And his dialogue is kind of boring. I only have room in my heart for one Russian male lover interest. Dimka from VA!!! <3 …Wendy’s funny and awesome, a lot like Ellie from Angelfire. I wish Piotr was more like Will. Elle’s flapper talk may annoy some people, but I think it’s funny. I had no idea all those phrases came from the 20’s. And Eddie! The Jewish guy-friend, who’s in a coma and out of his body. He’s so funny. Way better than Piotr. Then there’s Jon and Chel, the bro and sis of Wendy. I knew they weren’t just normal!
I think it was awesome to find out more about the reaper. There’s new characters that knew Wendy’s mom. Jane and Emma. The let her borrow a book, offer to train her even though she’s a natural. You’ll find out later if you read it.
I recommend this book series if you like the Angelfire series (Courtney Allison Moulton) or any Reaper paranormal romance books, like Once Dead, Twice Shy or Soul Screamers.
The plot was just great until the end….
OH MY GOD WHAT A HORRIBLE CLIFF HANGER!!!! NOOO!!!!! LIIIIVVVEEEE!!!!!!!!
Cover Art Review: I know the guy on the cover is supposed to be Piotr, with a spirit web, he looks like a middle-aged, Asian zombie, not a late teen/early 20’s Russian hottie. The hands look really weird and sick. I know it’s a painting, but it’s just odd.
