Summary

Anima is a reaper with no tattoos, and no ability to reap souls. 

For reasons unknown to her, a demon queen has set her sights on her capture. 

If Anima wants to have any chance of escaping Chesca and her minions, she needs to accept the help of the one person she really doesn't want to. 

Anima's feelings towards Thantos might be more complicated than even she realises. And Than is certainly not as indifferent to her as she believes.

A Tattooless Reaper

Anima is labeled an outcast from her society since she is tattooless, can’t reap, and has been alone her whole life besides her demon friend. That starts to change once Than saves her time and time again on her failed reaps and makes her see that it doesn’t have to be that way. He’s then captured by Chesca, the demon queen, but is she brave enough to go to Hell for the man she has conflicted feelings for? The world building and descriptions were vivid- I enjoyed Laura’s own spin on angels, demons, reapers, and Hell. Nim’s journey of self discovery and saving Than was full of revelations and adventure. The only thing that seemed a little off was that there minor battles through Hell were extremely action packed and detailed, but the main one seemed to lack the “epic battle” that I was expecting.
CL did a really good job with this narration! She used different voices for each character, brought their emotions to life, and had an easy voice to listen to.

Unusual

I liked the story but felt I missed something or was on book 2 instead of book 1. The premise and story idea was extremely unique. I feel I could have been more invested and sucked in if I knew what was going on or given more info before the main story started. The narrator did a good job of staying true to the characters.

This interesting story was of a reaper who was wronged as a child, and the journey she makes to save her love and her powers.
CL Buckland narrated this short but intriguing story.

Enjoyable different take on reapers

C L Buckland is a new narrator for me. I could tell easily who was who and I enjoyed the way she presented the story.

I loved the idea of the book, a slightly different take on reapers from what I've come across before. The twists in it were new for me and I think worked well. I enjoyed the world building, the way they lived and how that was presented and I'd like to know more about the characters and the world they inhabit. It's a relatively short listen but feels longer in a good way.

Very enjoyable

Fab story, well presented and brilliantly written/narrated.
Few unexpected twists and turns with a hea ending.
Great for listening to in the car (I did on a long boring motorway journey)

Uniquely great

A great unique story that the narrator did a wonderful job with. This story definitely left me wanting more and I hope that the author does continue on with these characters in the future.

This Was One Romance With A Sad Twist

This was very sad at times! Learning that you're defective and the reason behind why can be very devastating, most especially when it's not at all anything to do with you. The romance was fast paced and hot!! You have a feeling that he really does have a thing for her, yet she doesn't believe it's a permanent thing. The inner monologue of the main character was just... everything!! She is snarky and hilarious! This narrator brought these characters to life just so very perfectly! I loved her emotion and tone. What a beautiful collaboration this was!

Unique story

This is such a unique read! Anima is a Reaper who can't reap, making her an outcast among Reapers and her only friend is a demon. Add in Chesca, a demon queen with a vengeance, and Than, the Reaper she has conflicting feelings towards, and we get quite the adventure. I loved the whole world Laura created and really felt for Anima during her journey.

C. L. Buckland is a new narrator for me and I really enjoyed her.

The only thing wrong with this is there isn’t any more

I loved this book and can’t wait for more. The narration was wonderful. The shining beauty in this though was the truly original story. The story leaves you wanting more and wishing it was longer. I have read several books by Laura Greenwood and enjoyed them all but I think this one and it’s world is my favorite.
