Happy Release Day for Reap of Shadows!
Piper is feeling a bit overwhelmed. With Seiya and Lyre missing, Ash recovering from near fatal injuries, and the Gaians picking fights with daemons all over the city, a girl can’t help but think she might be in over her head. And this time, she’s on her own.
Before she even has a chance to investigate the Gaians’ new stockpile of mysterious, high-tech weaponry, an old enemy ambushes her: Samael’s henchman Raum. He wants Ash’s help and won’t take “get lost” for an answer. She doesn’t know if she can trust Raum, but even more than that, she can’t trust herself with Ash. Sooner or later he’ll catch up to her, and she fears she won’t be able to walk away from him a second time.
Despite her feelings, it will take their combined strength to face a frightening discovery about the Gaians. She and Ash begin to realize that the daemon war is coming to Earth, and they might be the only ones who can stop it—if it’s not already too late.
This books starts about 10 days after Yield the Night. Piper is once again trying to handle things on her own, even though she has friends that will help! Drives me crazy.
And the most important thing WHERE IS ASH!
Thankfully he shows up and the world gets a littler brighter, or darker however you want to look at it! Ash is completely my favorite right now. Piper is a little, I don’t want to say mean to him, but they really work out some problems that you knew were coming. I really liked that. You knew they were going to have to deal with these issues and they do. Ash handles it really well. Maybe its because you are in Piper’s head the whole time, but she does not. Ash is there to help her though, it was wonderful!
I have to say that this author writes fighting scenes really well. They are not confusing nor too long.
One of my favorite things about this series is that you can really see Piper grow and mature the further along you go. Things got even more intense in this book. Her relationship with her father reaches a breaking point and I am hoping that in the next book that is able to be repaired.
There were a couple unexpected twists which is always fun. The scene was really set for the next book. All the groundwork is there, we just have to wait and see how it ends!
Overall, absolutely amazing, 5/5 stars!
I can’t wait to see how it all ends. Which speaking of book 5 and the grand finale…

I wrote my first piece of fiction outside a classroom when I was fourteen. Nowadays I shudder to think of it and can’t actually stand to read it as an adult, but it got me started on the road to over one million words written in the last 12 years. My passions in fiction haven’t changed since that first story. I love characters with spunk, intense relationships that challenge those involved, dark and mysterious worlds, and lots of kick-butt action.
I published my début novel and the first book in the Steel & Stone series, CHASE THE DARK, on October 17, 2014. The next two books followed in January and March 2015, and the fourth book in the series, REAP THE SHADOWS, is coming this fall. I plan to publish prolifically and with dedicated enthusiasm, and I hope my readers will share that enthusiasm.
