I loved this story , it was a great read. It had a great plot and writing. This was a very original but successful story. It was fast paced and very in depth. This story had a lot to it: humor, romance, adventure, excitement, suspense, magic, a Reaper, trust, destiny, twist and turns, loss, a protector, mystery, intrigue, hidden worlds, and danger. I was surprised by the ending but it did pull everything together. I loved the characters and the twists and turns of this story and I highly recommend.
