There is no escaping a Reaper. I am an elite assassin, part of a brotherhood that only answers to Death. And when Death says your time is up, I’m coming for you…
For centuries, my loyalties lie with Death. She is my mistress and master. I am alive only to do what pleases her. And for Death, I shall battle the evil among us until the bitter end to keep her safe.

Right off I’m going to say, I did not go in reading order of the Dark Kings and Reapers. There is a Dark Kings book that has a lot of crossover to Dark Alpha’s Temptation so I felt like there were a few missing pieces. Just enough that I noticed, but not enough that it ruined the story.
Kyra is special. She can change her appearance and see the Reapers when they’re veiled to name a few. Kyra has spotted Dubhan and is following him around. He is fascinated by her when he puts it together that she can see him.
Special symbols are found on a bookstore and the two begin to research them. They seem to have meaning related to Reapers and must be investigated. Kyra and Dubhan get some help from a couple of people that doesn’t end well. Also, they come across some Fae that seem to have abilities that the Reapers haven’t anticipated.
I found Kyra to be a fun and interesting female main character. The connection between her and Dubhan was pretty quick and he didn’t seem to have as many reservations as some of the other Reapers to hold him back.
The Others strength and abilities are growing while we progress to a confrontation. Kyra gets a surprise and must make an important decision. All the Reapers, Death & Cael watch in interest to what she will decide.
This couple and their adventure was a great installment. Surprises, action and romance kept me listening so attentively. Some people say it is ok to read on it’s own, but I can’t agree with that. It is on a different story arc, but I can’t see someone just jumping in. If I did this differently I also would have read the Dark Kings and this series in reading order. I think that would make me connect with the book even more.
