(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I would, ideally, give this book 3.5 stars. The plot was really intriguing… and I really adored the front cover. It’s really nicely designed. And although reapers and angels aren’t unique concepts in fiction, I felt that the use of Giltine was really interesting, as was the whole history surrounding the reapers. I would have liked some more detail about their origins, though.
The switching between past and present wasn’t as confusing as I would have thought it would be. I couldn’t really believe in the romance/s, though. There wasn’t enough interaction between the characters to make me believe in the love they had for each other.
I did like both Christian and Brooke as characters. Their interactions were good, but because there was so much going on in the rest of the book, I didn’t think that there was enough about how their relationship worked together. It just seemed based on what they looked like, since they didn’t actually seem to spend any time getting to know each other beforehand.
I did think William was an interesting character and I’d like to see more of him and Abby. I wasn’t as keen on Abby as a character and I did wonder about the fact that her boss seemed completely non-existent, considering how bad her customer service skills were.
I did find Giltine a really intriguing character as well. Although she was technically the bad guy, I could see some parts of her that were more well-rounded and it would have been nice to see more of her personality and history explored.
I’m not sure I’d read a sequel to this book. I’d like more time spent on developing the romance, rather than it just happening like that. It was entertaining and quick to read, though.
