I was drawn into Purgatory from the first page and didn't want to return! I received a free copy of this book by subscribing to the author's newsletter and opted to post a review. The plot is an intriguing interpretation of Purgatory and the mythos of Death and Grim Reapers. The inclusion of Norse mythology was incredibly unique and well thought out; there's quite a bit of Judeo-Christian symbolism in the plot so the Norse mythology was a refreshing change of pace. I loved Raven as a protagonist; she was unconventional, witty, snarky, and intelligent. I felt a connection with her and instantly became engaged in her story. The plot sizzles with some romance between Raven and an angel (I'm not going to tell you which one). However, I do wonder what this angel's true motives are because I'm sure "the powers that be" in Heaven are working an angle that has yet to be revealed. There are a few action scenes in the plot; however, the plot focused more on the political intrigue and inner workings of Heaven, Hell, Purgatory, and the Reapers. The machinations of the characters appealed to my cerebral "inner geek" and I loved every moment of it. I'll definitely read the second book in this series to see what happens next!
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. Raven is the first ever female grim reaper. Unlike the male version, she wears a skin fitted black leather uniform and has black wings. Suddenly, many years later, there's a new female reaper in purgatory, her name is Holli. She's the polar opposite of Raven, with long platinum blonde hair, white uniform and white wings. Death's excuse is that she's there to assist Raven with the sudden influx of phenoms. This makes Raven suspicious, and with the help of her best friend Garrett they begin to unravel a huge mystery. Will Raven ever get over her jealousy of Holli? Will Garrett and Raven uncover Death's sinister plot before it's too late? I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Raven is a strong female character that I absolutely loved. She had so much love and compassion for humanity that you immediately connect with her. I thought that the relationship between Raven and Garrett was awesome and I could easily see why Raven cared about him so much. This was a great edge of your seat fantasy novel, I'm hoping there will be a book two, if there is, I can't wait!
My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!! ***Received the ebook for free for an honest review Okay, I hate to admit this, but the cover does nothing for me, and I would have missed out if I judged this book by it’s cover. Okay, I really enjoyed this book. This is the first book that I have read by Tish, and I really liked her writing style. It is easy to read, and a great adventure. I loved the combinations of Heaven and Hell with the Death and the Grim Reapers, but then she threw in Norse mythology too. It mixed very well together and was a great adventure. I’m going to have to look into more of Tish’s work since she writes paranormal romance, and I love reading this genre. I really liked Raven and Garrett. They were my favorite characters. They are best friends and made me laugh. I like that Raven is strong and doesn’t take crap from anyone. I love how she stands up for herself and fights for what she believes is right. I definitely recommend this story to my paranormal romance reading friends. You will definitely enjoy this unique story!!
Words to describe Tish Thawer’s Raven’s Breath… Intriguing, Unique, and an all-around GREAT READ! When I started reading this book, I wasn’t sure what to expect but with each turn of the page, I was hooked! As the story unfolded it keep me guessing as to what the characters actual motivation was at each twist and turn. I loved how I couldn’t see the ending coming and I guarantee you won’t either. I can only hope she writes more stories about these characters. I definitely have a few that I am dying to know what happens next. *wink, wink* Tish Thawer does an amazing job of drawing the reader into Raven’s world, Purgatory, and the realm the reapers exist in. There are so many creative elements imbedded into each chapter that I have no doubt it will quickly become a favorite among those who enjoy a well written story rich in paranormal elements.
