READ Reap Repent ¿ Lisa Medley
He was a reaper On the other hand the fact that she wasn t a blabbering vegetable after the amount of juice he d already poured into her also proved she was than humanSo what other explanation was thereHis gut told him she was an untrained reaperSo at first he has his doubts then he decides to go with his gut and treat her like a reaper What s then strange is that everyone even the angel Rashnu who is kind of like a boss figure for the reapers just follows suit Why is that And ou would think that other reapers would give Deacon a hard time about it But there s virtually no interaction at allThese aren t the only uestions that go unanswered while reading this book and it s odd that there is so many as there is a good amount of infodumping in the first few chapters But here s one example there s mention of something called Reiki energy that the reapers have but what this is is never really explainedWhat s the love story feels rushed and as a result not very believable I m not really sure at what point they stopped being teacher and student and started falling for each other but frankly when they started making out and expressing their feelings for one another my first thought was that it was kind of out of left field because they seemed to have very little chemistry before thenI had a hard time getting behind Ruby and Deacon as characters as they seemed a little one dimensional and a little too eager to throw away the habits of a lifetime I was actually intrigued by the two secondary characters the demon ridden reaper Kylen and the witch NateAll in all I think the idea behind the series is one with a lot of potential The execution well it just needs some work because the most frustrating thing about reading this book was seeing all the ways it could be made better like being in a house where The Wedding (Lux, you could see where all the repairs needed to be made and could even visualize how it would be once it was restored but not having the ability to actually get in there and start hammering Reap Repent was an interesting story of a girl who s lived in chosen solitude for most of her life and the reaper who is going to train her to fulfill her purposeRuth has essentially shut herself off from getting close to anyone after realizing she has an unwanted gift She can tell what mood a person is in and if they re close to death This was such a fun new story It s definitely clearing a path for a great series This one is about Ruth and the discovery of who she is and Deacon learning how to relive again And the world of reapers and angels and demons Ruth lost her dad at aoung age Her and her mother didn t see eye to eye But now she lost everything And on top of that she s always seen a light surrounding people Their auras But she knows when someone s mad sad dying Yeah She when her mother dies and she runs literally into deacon it all opens the flood gates Ruth is a witty kind courageous She really has had a rough time with a lot of crap thrown at her for a uick period of time Deacon can t let things go He s got guilt and anger from long before So when Ruth knocks into him she has no aura and she can see him Really see him And he follows her and scared the crap out of her then releases a bomb that she s an untrained reaper The plot is so intriguing The mystery and suspense kept me glued to the pages I loved the demon twist of possession I loved Grim And Kylen and Nate are fantastic characters that added so much to this story The writing is fantastic I thoroughly enjoyed this story I m so glad I picked it up and I can honestly say I will be picking up book two This is a fantastic paranormal romance with some fascinating twists on reapers and their ways 5 PAWS.

Reading it become intrigued from the very beginning Ruth is a surprising character because in the beginning she is not what I would have expected as a leaderRead of my review THREE TEASERS an excerpt here TOUR POST WON T BE LIVE ON MY BLOG UNTIL AUGUST 18th 2015 Check out my blog and other postsreviews here You can see this full review and at Book Briefs Reap and Repent is the first book in the Reaper Series It is an urban fantasy series about reapers and about a new mysterious untrained reaper I love the concept of the book and I think the rest of the series has potential but the first book was a little bumpy for me I still liked it but I didn t love it as much as I initially hoped that I would I read another book I can t remember the name about a girl that could see aura colors for different paranormal creatures and I was fascinated by that idea So when I found out that this main character Ruth could see aura colors and could use that to determine when someone would die and what they were feeling I was super excited to see what kind of world Lisa Medley had created with her reapers And I did really like the world of her reapersI loved that instead of being scary that within the first really second meeting between Ruth and Deacon FREE on today 1062019 Review originally published on WillReadForFeelscom I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my reviewI decided I wanted to review this novel because I was intrigued by the concept of reapers and I have always been pretty interested in books about them I remember there was a TV show called Reaper back in the day that I followed just because the idea fascinated me so much I also read and enjoyed Amber Benson s Calliope Reaper Jones series and I thought Lisa Medley s Reap Repent would operate much the same wayThe elements were certainly there hard working reapers looking to get ahead of the demons determined to take souls of the newly departed straight to hell without the benefit of judgment in Purgatory And we were promised a kind of reaper extraordinaire in the form of DeaconI really wish I could say differently but I found the character sadly lacking For one thing some things just didn t make sense If Deacon is so experienced and there was a whole spiel about how old he is how he s holding a territory that s usually divided up between multiple reapers and so on so one would expect this how come he acts shocked when he encounters Ruby who exhibits reaper like traitsIf there s as much bureaucracy in the business of taking people to their final judgment as is initially implied in the novel why doessn t there seem to be a standard operating procedure for recruiting and training newbie reapers Plus Deacon is established very early on as a non social reaper one who looks down on the reapers who do stop to socialize So why does he just take on the job of training Ruby when it s clear he already has his hands fullThen there s how they decide what Ruby is or maybe isn t When Deacon and Ruby meet he asks her what she is immediately rejecting the idea she s an angel and then asking her if she s a reaper or a valkyrie Now it s later revealed that a valkyrie has reaping skills but can carry many souls than reapers can It s also mentioned that there are damn few female reapers and that most women who can reap are trained as valkyries Since Deacon was once friends with valkyrie it s presumed he would know what a valkyrie can do So why is he so uick to make the assumption Ruby is a reaperHere s the part where he decides itSure it had been a little easier for him to juice her into submission than it should have been if Aving spent than two hundred ears ushering souls to Purgatory Deacon is seldom shocked by anything As he helps Ruth to understand her true nature she awakens desires that he decided long ago a Reaper can’t affordA demon invasion forces Deacon to confront the darkness.
I am reviewing these individually because I feel that is fair to the author as she has taken some time writing these awesome books I never in my life thought I would enjoy books that involve grim reaping but I did This story did have a bit of inst love but hey I have personally had some insta love with a hot male before so I can t really fault someone for falling for Deacon now can IThis book did a great job of story development right from the beginning Right from the first three pages we were introduced to both characters and their uniue abilities and it did not stop from there Their development is constant and never flat lines Medley has done a fantastic job developing these characters that ou really can t help but pull for them as individua Well that was an okay read Some parts I loved some were just mere moments I liked the concept and the world I don t like the fact that she had no real training compared to other reapers but could basically do everything I m interested to see how this develops later on in the series His gut told him Normal was a town he d never see again 5 starsHOLY Now that was a HOT story snicker I thoroughly enjoyed this book and absolutely cannot wait for Even though this story starts off sad and blue I was very uickly drawn into it While In Short Deacon is caught off guard when Ruth barrels into him in the hospital hallway Being a reaper generally means the normals don t pay him much attention if they see him at all She is also aura less Only reapers lack an aura Is she new A rebel maybe She certainly forgot to do her job when she left this woman s soul lingering near her dead form Ruth is very used to being alone Her father passed when she 12 ears old She isolated herself at a oung age when she figured out not everyone can see auras and her mom pushed her away because Ruth s ability unsettled her She is a little curious about the guy she ran into as she exited the hospital He didn t have an aura surrounding him Stranger still he shows up in her mother s living room while she is busy unpacking and sorting Together they discover why she is able to see auras and fight Deacon s very literal demon The only real drawback for me with this book is that is told in multiple persons Mostly it is just Ruth and Deacon but sometimes we get something from the others too I prefer to stick with one character s angle The writing is pretty fast paced Lisa Medley dove right into the story from the get go filling in details and history here and there I appreciated not sitting through chapter after chapter on past experience old politics and mythology before getting to the present Her characters were solid Everyone has a past but it doesn t pull these guys down and it doesn t make them little sissies crying about their past I am getting so tired of overly tortured and torn struggling and self depreciating heroes and heroines The Reapers Series pulled me in with book 1 I hope the good characters hold up into the next 4 out of 5 stars All her life Ruth has known she was different especially with her ability to see other people s auras However since she was twelve Mary Engelbreit (Leisure Arts years old when she witnessed her father s death she has been alone keeping herself away from people and afraid of her ability Now an adult with a PhD Ruth s life dramatically changes after her mother dies and Deacon a two hundred and sixear old reaper inserts himself into her life to show her that she is a reaper too Yet as their time together brings them from one extreme circumstance to the next and their connection exponentially grows they ll have to decide what they are willing to do to keep on another safeIntense and dynamic with a uniue setting then I am use to. They see death Can they share a life Ruth Scott can read the energy of every person she meets Then she meets Deacon Walker She can see his ice blue eyes his black hair and his gorgeous face But this beautiful stranger has no auraDeacon is just as unsettled by Ruth and
