My Demonic Ghost: Reapers by Jacinta Maree

The Reapers by Jacinta Maree
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was provided with a digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The second instalment in the My Demonic Ghosts series, this book continues to take us through troubled and distressed demonic elements. In this story, we meet Jordan, a reaper. Assigned with the task of collecting human spirits at the moment of their deaths, Jordan leads a miserable life, with a lot of internal conflicts and turmoils. To add to his woes, he realises that the pet wolf he has been given, is having a lot of difficult adjusting to Jordan as his new master. Does Jordan manage to solve his personal and responsibility issues, is what the book takes us through.

The book has an interesting storyline and keeps up the momentum of the first book in the series, Banished Spirits. Maree's writing style is captivating and keeps the reader engaged. I would have loved to have the pace a tad more brisk, but the author manages to cover up such nitpicks with a nice narrative.

I definitely enjoyed the book and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

My rating for this book: 4 stars

Self confessed chocaholic, Jacinta was born and raised in Melbourne Australia with her loving family of five. Even as a child Jacinta had an itch to write. Writing was the one constant hobby she clung to, also trying her hand at piano, flute, tennis, horseback riding and drama.

Jacinta works full time in the family business and spends her afternoons either playing basketball, reading, writing or hanging out with friends. She is always happy to try something new; getting her real estate license, practicing ninjitshu, Zumba and parkour to name a few.

For her future, Jacinta sees herself writing. It is a large part of her identity and something she hopes to continue. Aside from her love of stories she loves Japan and its unique and beautiful culture and history. From their delicious sushi dishes right down to their wooden sandals and kimonos. She is also a huge cat person and loves to snuggle up in front of the fire for a good movie or book. Her favorite genres are paranormal and fantasy but she also loves anything written by thriller writer, Stephen King.
