What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
A Reaper who doesn’t reap is like a custard donut without the custard. Pointless.
Between getting my ass kicked by Azazel in the training room, avoiding Conah, and verbally sparing with Mal, I’m beginning to get a feel for what it means to be a Dominus Reaper.
The guys might not think I’m ready to get out and do my job, but I have a team of reapers relying on me, and I’m not about to let them down.
Leadership? No problem.
Teamwork? Bring it.
It’s time to jump into the fray.
While the guys track the Dread who attacked the Academy, I’m forced to work alongside Grayson, the Regency pack alpha, to investigate a missing persons case involving vamps.
The alpha is stubborn, bossy, arrogant, and sexy as hell. I’m torn between kissing him and punching him. But when he’s taken by the bloodsuckers, there’s no doubt in my mind that I need to get him back. Even if it means venturing into forbidden territory to do it.
Death awaits with fangs and claws, but I’ll be damned if I let it walk all over me.
Here’s to hoping I keep my head.
Thoughts on Reaper Uninvited
While Book 1 in this series was a bit confusing, this book smooths those edges and starts defining this universe in more approachable – though no less dangerous – terms. Fee, our strong, yet still naive, heroine, is struggling to fit in and find her place, surrounded by a group of men who truly want what’s best for her, even if that means keeping her in the dark.
Those relationships, fragile as they are, are slowly strengthened here, adding layers and pillars to the nuances that have dragged this group together. Mal, Cohen, Azazel, Greyson and even Uri all stir up different aspects of emotion and personality in Fee, and the reasons why are slowly… oh so slowly… being disclosed. We don’t get a front seat to ALL the answers, and honestly, we are left with even more questions, but the slow burn approach is delicious, and riveting. Who are these men? What do they mean to Fee? Or what WILL they mean to her?
Secrets breed secrets, and Fee is at the center of way too many of them. She learned a bit about her past and her heritage previously, yet none of that can really prepare her for what is coming down the pike, and how it will affect not only Fee, but everyone in her orbit. In other words, watch the cliff.
⭐️ I received an ARC of this book and am thrilled to share my honest opinion!⭐️
- Well written.
- Some of the confusing bits in Book 1 are answered here.
- POV from different characters fill in the blank spaces in the narrative.
- Cora! Did NOT see THAT coming!
- Cyril…. is it fair to have a crush on a snake? I have a crush on a snake.
- Azazel and Greyson…. I have so many feels when it comes to them.
- That ending! Oh boy…. what is THAT going to mean?
- Cohen. Can I slap him? Seriously?
- Felt short.
First Person, Multiple POV
Cliffhanger….a doozy of one. Thankfully, Book 3 isn’t far off. You can even pre-order it now.
I hazard to guess here, but from what it APPEARS…. MMMMMF

My Final Verdict on Reaper Uninvited
Emotional, action packed and free flowing, this PNR/Fantasy/Urban Fantasy slams across the page and dares you to keep up. It’s a slow burn delight where feelings truly have a chance to build, though the tensions remain high, buffeted by a strange world that is doing its best to destroy or devour our Heroine. In other words? It’s everything we’ve come to expect from Debbie Cassidy – and it’s free on Kindle Unlimited.
