Overview

Descent by Tara Fuller

He'll destroy everything and everyone to save her...including himself.

Easton doesn't believe in love. He believes in death. Darkness. Sin. As a reaper for Hell, it's all he's known for more than four hundred years. So when he gets slapped with the job of training the boss's daughter, an angel that knows nothing but joy, he knows he's in for a world of trouble.

Though he's made it clear he wants nothing to do with her outside of work, Gwen will do whatever it takes to get close to the dark and wounded reaper - even taint her angelic image and become a reaper herself. But in all her planning, she forgot to factor in one thing - how far the demons Easton doomed to Hell will go for revenge.

When the dangers of Hell threaten Gwen, Easton will destroy everything and everyone to save her. But as the darkness closes in, will he be able to save himself?

Tara Fuller writes novels. Some about witches. Some about grim reapers. All, of course, are delightfully full of teen angst and kissing. Tara grew up in a one-stoplight town in Oklahoma, where once upon a time she dreamed of becoming a writer. She has a slight obsession with music and a shameless addiction to zombie fiction, Mystery Science Theater, and black and white mochas. Tara now lives with her family in a slightly larger town in North Carolina, where they have at least three stoplights. www.tarafuller.com

All in all, Descent is a delightful book full of redemption, love, loss, and the meaning of justice. How far would you go for revenge if someone hurt the people you loved? Gwen and Easton are wonderfully multidimensional. They prove that being the bad boy doesn’t necessarily guarantee that he is bad or incapable of being good and that being a good girl can want to experience the bad just to want to have a greater understanding of the world - no love needed. I recommend this book for any fans of Hush Hush, Fallen, or The Mortal Instruments books. If you love angels, demons, and everything in between, then go and find yourself a copy of this book and devour it as soon as possible.

I have thoroughly enjoyed Tara Fuller's Kissed by Death series.  It was in the first book that we got to meet Easton, and I have been so looking forward to reading his story.  He has that dark, broody, silent, badass vibe going on and he just oozes with hotness.  He thinks he is beyond hope, but underneath there is so much more than meets the eye.  Easton's love interest and new to the series is an angel named Gwen who is able to see past all Easton's walls into the man inside.  There is only one problem....Gwen happens to be the bosses daughter.  A sort of reap gone bad puts both Gwen and Easton in a precarious position, with Easton being commissioned to train Gwen, and subsequently they both find themselves in the midst of a whole lot of trouble.  In the midst of it all and despite his reservations, Easton finds himself  actually having feelings for Gwen, something he never thought possible and when hell threatens Gwen, Easton will tear down the gates if necessary to protect her.    I thoroughly enjoyed Easton and Gwen's story.  The romance was sweet and had just the right amount of hotness while still being appropriate for teens.  I loved getting to see Finn and Cash, who also made appearances as well - I just love those guys.  If you enjoy paranormal romance, then you will want to add this to your TBR list.

The long-awaited finally of the "Kissed by Death" trilogy is here! "Descent" by Tara Fuller brings a great conclusion to this wonderful series. The reader is given the Angel of Joy and the Reaper from Hell. Gwen, the Angel of Joy is a bit different. She isn't just content with being an angel, she wants to experience more than just her angelic self and joy. When Gwen sees a soul get reaped first hand it has a big effect on her. Now she wants to know more; learn more. Gwen is tired of being kept in her little bubble of joy, she wants to see what else is out in the world. Easton is definitely Gwen's opposite. Easton has a very special job that he has been doing for over four centuries. He is a reaper, which means he reaps the souls that are destined to be sent to hell. Now that Gwen has become some curious with Easton's job, Easton has been given the task by his boss, whom is also Gwen's father, to familiarise Gwen with the job but also why protecting her. Then the unthinkable happens and Gwen and Easton get stuck in hell. Of course nothing seems to go well at all for the two of them, so they end up having to battle their way out. I think this story keeps up a pretty good pace keeping the reader on their toes. I have to say that the book is a bit darker than the first two but still really good. I think Fuller has done a great job with this series and I was definitely not disappointed in the finale. I thought the characters were great and very easy to get to know which everyone knows is one of my main things to look at in a story. I feel like each character was able to grow and become a better version of themselves. I look forward to seeing what other young adult novels we will get from Tara Fuller.

I have been waiting for this book for such a long time now and I’m so glad we finally got Easton’s story. This has been such a fun, yet slightly dark, series and I’ve enjoyed following these characters along. Easton has intrigued me from the moment I met him. He is so dark and kinda scary, but at the same time he always felt like a good guy. He put up a scary front but I always wondered what was underneath that front. I really enjoyed getting to know him. He has a dark past and he has suffered immensely during his years as a reaper for hell. Some of the things he has endured are unspeakable. But despite all of that, he still managed to remain a good person underneath it all and that makes him special. Gwen is basically Easton’s opposite in every way but you know what they say… opposites attract. Gwen sees Easton for who he is and sees his goodness. She has lived a very sheltered life and when she finally gets out it shows. Her innocence and naivety could be frustrating, but at the same times it’s understandable. Her acting otherwise wouldn’t be believable. Easton and Gwen together just work and I really liked them as a couple. Easton proves that he is willing to do pretty much anything for Gwen. The pain he put himself through was crazy and he did it because he finally found someone he could love. Easton is special. I couldn’t believe what he was willing to trade just to keep Gwen safe. But the best part is, it goes both ways. Easton spends a lot of time trying to save Gwen. But Gwen isn’t weak. Underneath her innocence is a strong and stubborn girl. And when push comes to shove Gwen can do some saving of her own. Descent was another good addition to the series (although Blurred remains my favorite) and it was also a lot darker than the first two. Descent stands out in the series because a majority of the book actually takes place in hell and as you can imagine that was rough. There are horrors there and torture and pain. Some of the horrors make my skin crawl just thinking about it. But I actually really liked that this book took place in a completely different realm. At heart I am a paranormal fan, so I love when I get to visit new places, even when those places are terrifying. Descent was a really enjoyable read and I was able to devour it in one sitting. Fans of the series will not want to miss Easton’s story.

Great story but not for when you're feeling squeamish! Easton has a job, a special job, one he’s been doing for over four centuries. He’s a reaper. No, that doesn’t mean he’s harvesting crops. Easton reaps the souls destined to be sent to Hell and to spend their existence being tormented by the evil devils there. His big boss, however, has given Easton a new addition to his job, one that Easton really doesn’t want. His new job is to familiarise his boss’s daughter, Gwen, with Hell whilst protecting her. Gwen is an angel of joy, bringing hope to those in darkest despair and taking their pain and suffering away. She’s everything the demons would love to feast on and Easton has to protect her? No way! Add into the mix that he’s attracted to her and she seems keen to get to know him better, whilst demons are also determined to get revenge on Easton for sending them to Hell and Gwen being filled with pure joy, their favourite but very rare treat and they’re in for an adventure with no guarantee of a happy ending…. Filled from the outset with angels, demons and humans this paranormal romance there’s never a dull moment in this fast paced dark story. There are graphic descriptions of what happens in this horrific Hell, it isn’t a cosy, comfortable read or place though Gwen’s nature is the antithesis of all of this, a light of goodness shining through to help obliterate the darkness and hatred. I really liked the ending, too! Whilst this is the third in the series, you don’t need to have read the others to enjoy this, and I have no hesitation in highly recommending it to anyone who likes paranormal, good v evil, romance with a fair measure of horror. Don’t read it if you’re feeling squeamish! Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Entangled Publishing, LLC and NetGalley.) “You believe everyone can be fixed. They can’t. Some are meant to be forever broken.” This was a YA story about a reaper who falls in love with an angel. I don’t really remember Easton from the previous books, which is probably more to do with the fact that it’s about 2 years since I read them. Anyway, Easton came across as a bit of a damaged soul in this story. He worked as a reaper, but really he had a kind heart, and had to harden himself to deal with his everyday life. “I’d never understood the dead’s longing for what they once were. The flesh. The blood. The feeling of life rushing and burning through their veins. The numbness was something I was thankful for.” Gwen was an angel who felt too strongly about the humans she tried to help, to the point where she was prepared to do anything to save a soul wrongly taken to hell. She seemed to be able to see good in everyone, even when no-one else believed that there was any good to see. “As angels of joy, our soul purpose was to blesss humans with happiness, to eliminate the dark and give birth to light. I’d done those things for Tyler for two years, and found it impossible to stop caring.” The storyline in this was about Gwen and Easton going down into hell to rescue the soul of a boy wrongly taken there. There was a bit of flirting and romance between Gwen and Easton, but the relationship seemed to move very quickly for me. I felt like they went from sort-of-friends to kissing the lips off one another in a matter of a few lines, and it was a bit surprising. “I wanted to kiss her. I’d never wanted to kiss anyone.” We did get some sweet and romantic scenes between the pair which were nice, but it did happen rather quickly. “Because I love you.” Easton paled and his hands dropped to his sides. He took a step back, and his throat worked as he swallowed. “Don’t say that.” The ending to this was happy, although it was maybe a little rosier than I expected. 6.5 out of 10
