Zadie may have saved her sister Mara from a reaper, but now a reaper is after Zadie, controlling her and making her sleepwalk and do... things. Horrid things. And it was just totally freaky! Will Zadie surrender to the Reaper's Rite, or will she somehow manage to beat this curse? Dun, dun, DUN!
This book was pretty darn awesome! As I mentioned in my review of the last book, I LOVED the mythology behind the Vila! It's just something I've never read about before, and you all know how much I love me some mythology ;) But I read the last book, My Sister's Reaper a while ago, so I had a difficult time remembering what happened in that last book. Like, what exactly a Reaper's Rite is, or what the heck happened to Mara to make her act so creepy in the last book. I don't remember! And I felt a little bit lost.
I did love that we had a bit of a scenery change in the last half of the book with the Poulters... You know, Mrs. Poulter, Erina, Diana, and Preston. They're an interesting bunch. I really liked them! Erina was very friendly and sweet. Diana was a jerk-face, but she wasn't completely horrible. And Preston... well, he was very charming ;) I really liked the addition of these new characters. It was very refreshing!
Speaking of characters I love... Zadie and Gavin are just so adorable together! I admit though, they got extremely cheesy at times ;) I also loved Mara. In the last book, when she was being controlled by the reaper, she freaked the Hades out of me! But I was glad to really get to know her in this book :) And then there's Chase... I like him, but there was a hint of a love triangle going on, unfortunately (I don't like!). Something I found kinda funny and completely ironic though, was that Chase picked up one of Zadie's books, looked at it then said, "Interesting read. Though I'm not a really big fan of love triangles." My reaction: ME EITHER! This book had a little bit of that going on, but luckily it was nothing too horrible.
Overall, I really, really liked this sequel! It was very suspenseful with lots of action right from the start! I could not stop reading until I found out what happened with Zadie and the Reaper's Rite. Some pretty crazy/amazing things went down, but all I can say is that I loved the ending! It was just great and very satisfactory! :)
