What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
She spent years avoiding the dead. Now they’re coming after her.
Three years ago, Max Norton left home to open a tea leaves and tarot shop. It seemed like a good trade: escape the King of Hell and live a low-key life free from scrutiny and death threats. For a Scythe, a half-human paranormal entity who can open literal portals to Heaven and Hell, and who’s hounded by creatures both light and dark, it’s a dream come true. Until an annoyingly handsome ghost shows up and demands that Max help him solve his murder.
She wants nothing to do with it, but when zombies start attacking children and demons are sent to kill her, she knows this is one fight she can no longer avoid. Her ex-boyfriend, a charismatic wolf shifter, tells her about a dead zone in the forest where a necromancer is practicing black magic.
The only way to stop him is with the forbidden powers she ran away from; powers that will put a target on her back, because they mark her for a destined role in Hell she has no intention of fulfilling.
Saving the world from the zombie apocalypse may literally mean challenging the armies of Hell and facing the past she ran away from. With time running out, Max and Luke have to figure out who’s raising the dead and turning them into bloodthirsty monsters before they kill the few people left that she actually cares about. Hiding in the shadows, a mysterious enemy holds a secret that could change Max’s life forever…
Assuming she lives long enough to hear it.
Thoughts on Reaper Witch
This is pure urban fantasy – all action and adventure, dusted with death and spun through the gates of hell. It’s fun, fast and just mysterious to keep you guessing.
- Great concept!
- Episodic ending, but the metaplot is far from over.
- Maybe a hint of romance, but not really. This is urban fantasy at its most basic.
- So many questions at the end.
- Book is written in First Person, but the blurb is in third. ???
First Person, Single POV
R for Violence only.
M/F IF there is any at all. Not really present in this installment.
Character Age Range
Unknown, but Adult.
This is a great Urban Fantasy that opens up an entire new world with new rules and fasinating characters. Free on Kindle Unlimited.
