Even Death Can Fall in Love…
Avery hasn’t had it easy.
When she was ten years old her parents died in a car crash. Now nine years later her Aunt Caroline is the only family she has left. And Caroline is dying.
So when Death comes knocking (quite literally) in the form of the damaged and dangerous, Brennus, Avery makes a deal with the reaper in order to save Caroline.
Brennus is an Ankou.
One of the many, once mortal men and women, who were given the choice to become an immortal in exchange for ferrying the dead over into their afterlife.
Nine years ago Brennus took Avery’s parents and tried to take Avery, but she fought him and won. Amazed by her strength Brennus followed Avery and has watched over her.
Now he knows Avery is the one to offer him freedom from his obligation to the dead.
And he’ll stop at nothing to have her.
I came across this book after my friend posted a link to it. Several things caught my eye about it:
- It was FREE and it still is on Amazon. Who can say no to free books?! 😉
- It was written by Samantha Young who I absolutely love!
- It contains a grim reaper which is pretty freakin awesome in and of itself.
It was a pretty quick read. I really enjoyed it. I loved the main characters: Brennus and Avery. I found the plot line to be quite fascinating.
I also enjoyed the fact that we got plenty of backstory on both of the characters. It helped a lot especially considering how short the book is (around 150 pages). I would imagine it’s not an easy feat for authors to develop characters in such a short amount of time, but Samantha Young did really well in that aspect.
I only have one complaint about it. Some parts of the book seemed a bit rushed. Again, it is understandable considering its length, but I feel that this book would have greatly benefited from being extended into a full length novel.
Final verdict: 4 out of 5 stars!!
