Overview

Death: a word Mia Baron was all too familiar with since the murder of her parents when she was a young girl. Her drive for vengeance was the reason she became a Death Dealer—a soul guide through the spirit realm—signing her life away in her own blood. Pain forged a concrete wall around her heart and no one or nothing would ever penetrate it…until she got what she desired most—revenge.

Deacon Gage craves justice for his own horrific tragedy that forced him into the same life Mia chose, with the same promise of vengeance dangling just out of reach. His expert training makes him an Elite—one of the few Death Dealers to ever achieve such a status—and no one can shift his focus from the blood he seeks.

But when the two are partnered for yet another job and a heart-shattering case rips open Mia’s heart, Deacon realizes he’s the only one who can save her…at a price that might be too much to pay: opening his heart to her. The clock is ticking and her life hangs on the balance of whether he can truly let go or will hold onto his desire for blood.

    Ashley Robertson Death Dealer A Death Angel Novella-Book 1 For

    Ashley Robertson
    Death Dealer
    A Death Angel Novella-Book 1

    For a novella, this book has a shocking amount of detail and context, and felt like it was much more. A fairly unique concept, people are hired to become Death Dealers and tasked with collecting people's souls when they die and safely deliver them to either the Light or Dark Gate. Revenge fuels Mia on, but is it also what is holding her back?

    I soon found myself completely engrossed, turning page after page, wanting to see what was in store for Mia next and what else was going to be thrown her way. The emotional turmoil Mia goes through would be enough to push anyone over the edge, but her strength shines through and somehow, with the help of Deacon, she survives what was possibly some of the worst days of her life. The chemistry between Mia and Deacon is sizzling, though you can tell they care deeply for each other when they finally admit to themselves what they are feeling. I can't wait to see how this relationship is going to develop, given what they do on a daily basis.

    This book was the perfect opening for the series, with enough back story and description to leave no unanswered questions. Although this novella ended, there is still so much more to come from this story and I will eagerly be waiting for more.

    Deal Me A Death Card! Death Dealer what to say about this book..

    Deal Me A Death Card!
    Death Dealer what to say about this book..... well first of all this book is really really good and I surprised myself by actually reading it in one sitting. I have to say that the cover scared the bejesus out of me because it is totally creepy but after the first chapter I was hooked.




    What would you do to get revenge on the person or persons who have murdered your parents? Would you sell your soul to the devil? Would you make a deal to be a death dealer? Well Mia had to make that choice because her parents were murdered and she wanted revenge. In order to get revenge she decided she would be a death dealer and bring souls through the spirit realm. The anger and the hurt has ruled Mia's heart and she will stop at nothing to get her pay back. Then she meets someone who holds the same feelings she does and that is Deacon Gage.




    Deacon Gage is a man on a mission and I mean a revenge hate filled mission.He wants revenge so bad that he has become an elite death dealer and he is sent on a mission with Mia. While on this mission Mia gets hurt and her heart is once again ripped right open and the only person who can save her is Deacon. But what if Deacon can't save her? He will have to open up his heart and his heart has been closed for so long that he might not be able to save Mia.What will Deacon do? Will he save Mia or will he let her deal with this mission alone?




    This is a MUST MUST read! I mean there were so many twists and turns and lord do I love my bad boy extraordinaire Deacon! He is the man with a master plan and you have to read this book to see what it is.

    I recently had a friend complain that she's read too many urban fantasies and they were all starting to sound the same. If you feel the same way, READ THIS BOOK! Death Dealer is such a unique story that it will reawaken your love of urban fantasies and paranormal romance.

    Review: This book is good. I am upset that this was a short. I cannot wait to read the next one.




    I fell in love with the characters, especially Mia. She was detailed very well for my imagination to take over. I could not relate to her, but that did not affect the way I felt about her. Instead of being my best friend, she was just a co-worker feeling for another co-worker. Detached but affected by the outcome.




    Deacon is a different matter. He is not as defined as Mia and that is reasonable due to this being Mia’s story.




    The story line mostly stayed at the same pace with some high points. It was not action packed but that would be asking to much for a 94 page story. The settings were vivid and I started to think those monsters were coming after me. There were some twists that made the characters grow into themselves. The dialogue was just the right amount for the charcters not sure of themselves.




    I wish I could get excited about this short, but it being this length, it was hard. It was great for a lazy slow day to sit and read at one time.
    4 stars




    I was given a free copy in exchange for an honest review.




    Quote: “I thought I lost you,” he said as a small tear slid from his eye.




    She cleared her throat, the cough painful, but at least she was able to remove the burdensome lump that had been there.

    I enjoyed the story.  Mia is a grim reaper who escorts souls to heaven or hell.  She falls in love with her partner and mentor Deacon.  Seeing their relationship evolve is nice and cute to see them fight it.  While I had a problem with the couple's first intimate encounter the story of Mia evolving is interesting to watch.

    *I received this book from the Author via Lady Amber’s Tours in exchange for an honest review*

    This is a novella, about paranormal beings known as Death Dealers, which for every sense of the word are death. A sect of beings who traded their mortal lives for personal reasons who now all serve under a boss who sends them to collect the souls of the dead and dying.
    This book centers mainly around Mia with some additional centering around her partner Deacon.
    I found the story an interesting one though found it far too short. It really left me wanting. I’m hoping the second book will fill in some of the blanks that this one failed to.
    Don’t get me wrong, the story was well thought out, though the ending felt forced and hurried. I think perhaps the author should put a little more effort into the ending of this piece and others in this particular series.
    I found a couple of errors but nothing drastic, the only problem I really had with the story was how it seemed the author was in a rush to complete it.
    I liked the story itself, and will read the next in the series as well as other books the author has written, but I would consider maybe looking over the book and seeing if there is a way to complete the ending without it having that hurried, forced feeling.
    In all honesty if the ending of this book didn’t seem to be rushed or forced, I would have given it a higher rating.
    I give this book 3 of 5

    I want to thank the author Ashley Robertson for giving me this book for reveiw. I really enjoyed the story and I like Mia and Deacon they are both death dealers and drawn to each other. The concept is great, I feel that more could have been added to the story to give it much more depth and details. I understand that it's a novella, but it just needed more to me. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

    A fast paced book about a new paranormal being, at least in my opinion. Mia and Deacon are Death Dealers. The best way I can describe them is to think of them as Reapers, but they aren't angels. These are people who have signed up to transport souls to the gates of their deserved afterlife. After they achieve a certain amount of control over their powers, they can become members of the Elite. From the Elite, if they survive, they can become a Death Angel, an actual reaper if I understand it right. Their life isn't simple. They are responsible for pulling souls out of some bodies and just catching them when they pop out of others. Delivering them to their gate (light of dark) is a challenge itself. They transport souls to the ghostly realm, but have to walk to the gate. On the way, demons just may attack to try to steal souls for the Abyss (i.e. Hell) in order to disrupt the balance between light and dark.

    This story is about Mia's past human life combined with her very reason for turning into a Death Dealer. Deacon has been her partner for the difficult cases, but recently she has discovered an unusual feeling about him. Deacon has noticed the same feeling, but neither has confessed it. After a terrible battle with a demon, feelings come to light. I am not going to say anything more than that because I would ruin the entire story. It's a really good story. I really liked how the characters develop. It's well worth reading and a great example of Ashley Robertson's writing.

    Mia and Deacon both made deals.  If they get to escort the person responsible for the murder and death of one of their loved ones they will agree to become Death Dealers.
    Death Dealers are assigned souls that need to be transported to the required gates after death.  Their job is not simple, it’s not always easy and it can be deadly.
    The two have worked together in the past and they have a connection but when they are assigned a special case they both realize the connection is stronger than they expected or imagined.
    This short story was well developed with very likable characters.  My only ‘complaint’ was the ending was a little too abrupt.  It wasn’t a cliffhanger, it just ended.  I do understand that this is the first in a series and I hope that in future books we will get to see the characters’ lives unfold a little more.  Overall though this was a fun read.








    *I was given this book for an honest review but the opinions are my own and didn’t affect my rating.*
