When it comes to death and love…only one is guaranteed.
Four decades ago Nora died. A tragic event for someone so young; however, four decades ago Nora was also given a second chance to walk among the living.
A Death Warden with a mysterious past, her job is to escort the newly expired towards the light, battling with the Soul Hunters who want the freshly dead to help with their own evil purposes buried in the dark.
When Nora’s charges suddenly become targets, she realizes that the hunters are after far more than just souls. A shift in power between good and evil threatens to change everything, risking the lives of the only family Nora has ever known.
Devastated and angry, she’s forced to face the man she once loved – a man who chose darkness over her – in order to find the answers she needs to stop the horror from escalating. Yet, while a lost relationship still haunts her broken heart, a new Warden with secrets of his own will enter the mix and quickly alter everything Nora believed to be true.
Death is unavoidable…but sometimes, so is love.
A) This book ends on a cliffhanger. A horrible (not in a good way) cliffhanger
B) This book was so much shorter than I thought it would be. Its really more of a novella or a serial to me than a actual novel.
Now the pace was pretty good for this novel. Especially since I didn’t realize how short it was. It’s hard to talk about character development because it was so short the characters don’t really develop. You do get a good sense of the characters and who they are, but thats about it. The entire Death Warden world is a little confusing. I wish there was an index at the beginning or a introduction just explaining the overall world and how it works before you jump into the story. Jason and Nora also fall in love extremely quickly. There is nothing to really base that love off of. They know each other for two days and that’s it. It seems like she wanted to create a love triangle and create it very quickly. Overall the story just felt barely established and there is a lot more to come. The writing was fine and it was a good story. I am very interested to see what happens next.
