Review of Dead Reaper Walking by Mina Carter
Dead Reaper Walking by Mina Carter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.
I have read several of Ms. Carter’s novelettes and novellas and she never ceases to amaze me. No matter the length of the work, I’ve always finished fully satisfied with whatever I read whether it be a contemporary romance or paranormal romance. Dead Reaper Walking is no different. Once again she has managed to pack what feels like a full-length novel’s worth of action and adventure into less than 100 pages.
As the sequel to The Reaper and the Cop, we are back in Liberty with Troy and Laney and she quickly learns that the werewolf she reaped the night before was just the tip of the iceberg. Liberty has demons and Laney has just been promoted from Violent Deaths to Special Operations, which means there won’t be any Reaper back-up coming to town and she’s on her own. With her promotion comes access to a whole new level of information and skills, neither of which help her during her first encounter with the demon. But when the demon takes Troy, all bets are off as Laney has to decide between her duty as a Reaper and her love for Troy. She also makes a startling discovery about herself that I didn’t see coming.
Again we are treated to the sassy snark that is Laney and she certainly provided a tension-easing laugh when things got too heavy. Of course, Troy is just as sexy as before and, if possible, the chemistry between them is even more intense. Bathroom stall anyone? Dead Reaper Walking combines the right amount of paranormal elements, action, steamy sex, and romance and kept me engrossed from beginning to end. I’m looking forward to the next book in the Liberty, Oakwood series because I cannot wait to see what Ms. Carter has planned next for Laney and Troy.
