Great second volume in the Reaper's Rite, and follow up story from My Sister's Reaper. I liked this one better than the first one though the first one was pretty amazing. Some sequels have a hard time living up to the first book, but this one did not. I enjoyed every action packed twist and turn that Zadie took. I love the characters and the courage that Zadie has, especially with the threat of losing her protection and having to do whatever it takes to survive. If you love YA paranormally stories filled with magic, this is the book to read, but you need to read the first one to grasp the story.
This book is definitely darker and much more sinister than the first book. I really liked it because I LOVE dark and sinister though! Now that Zadie knows she is not the normal teenager, she has her mentor but there are dark forces at work making her do terrible things. Can Zadie overcome these forces and do the right thing? And now on top of everything else, she also must decide whether to fight the reaper again for her own life or surrender. Again, loved the character of Zadie - it is very easy for her to be made to do bad things but she has to fight it and redeem herself, figuring out who she REALLY is in the process. The characters are always so real and you can relate to them and their situations even if they are living in a "magical" world of sorts. Chase and Lilura are great teachers, but can they save Zadie from herself? Once again Dreyer has led the reader on a great chase through a fast-paced whirlwind of action and leaving the reader to wonder what will happen at the end? Of course I rooted wholeheartedly for Zadie to win, but you will have to read the book to find out! All I can say is that there is room for more books in this series :) Absolutely enjoyed both of these books and really cannot wait to see if there is a third coming out soon! ***I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an open and honest review***
