Summary

Half British Reaper, half Japanese Shinigami, Ren Scarborough has been collecting souls in the London streets for centuries. Expected to obey the harsh hierarchy of the Reapers who despise her, Ren conceals her emotions and avoids her tormentors as best she can. When her failure to control her Shinigami abilities drives Ren out of London, she flees to Japan to seek the acceptance she’s never gotten from her fellow Reapers. 

Accompanied by her younger brother, the only being on earth who cares for her, Ren enters the Japanese underworld to serve the Goddess of Death...only to learn that here, too, she must prove herself worthy. Determined to earn respect, Ren accepts an impossible task - find and eliminate three dangerous Yokai demons - and learns how far she’ll go to claim her place at Death’s side.

You're not going to like the main character

But that's not the point. The main character is not likable and this novel could be described as a "villain origin" story. I found it enjoyable. The narrator reads a little too slow for me, but I switched between the physical copy & audible. it's an easy, entertaining read with some really heart wrenching moments. Can't wait for the sequel.

Amazing!

The writing is beautiful and the narrator really brings the story to life. This isn't my typical read but I saw a TikTok of a girl sitting in her driveway crying after she finished it and knew I had to listen to it. While I didn't end up in my driveway crying, the ending is a heart wrenching way to wrap up the story that will make you feel all the emotions. I do like that the story is wrapped up at the end of this book and if there was never another book, you would be at peace with that but I'm so looking forward to her new novel being released in October! Absolute masterpiece in my opinion and a must read!

4.5 stars across the board!

I was a little skeptical at first… a reaper taking a soul and running for her life, trying to find where she belongs, not looking for love yet finding connections, diving into understand who she is with a moral guide. It seemed like a lot to take in. However, this fantastically written adventure that undergo is truly well done. I appreciate the different stages of the adventure and the character development is great. The narrator also does a great job of differentiation of characters personalities and styles. I look forward to book two next year!

Wonderful

amazing characters and a satisfying arch that comes to a gut wrenching conclusion.

i would recommend this to anyone who wants to read a story that will have you on the edge of your seat rooting for the main character. the Narrator giving a wonderful performance to boot.
