Defiance (The Reaper Series, #1)
I. Am. Death.
His only job? To watch.
Watch the family Fate branded for death be butchered by a random drunk.
Cadeus Reaper was created by Grim for reaping souls. So why can’t he do the one thing he was made for?
Cadeus always knew he was different from other Reapers. Still – he struggled to fit in, to follow orders, and earn his way to the top spot of Demoral as he was intended for, that is until he reaps a soul for the first time.
He defied Death’s law by attempting to stop a human from being executed.
Or so he thought.
His crime would not go unpunished or unnoticed.
Trapped. In a cell. For over twenty years as mental and physical abuse haunted him–only to discover that the girl he tried to save is very much alive–but will soon be dead.
With no other choice, Cadeus has to do the impossible. Escape an inescapable prison. With the help of a newfound friend, he manages to reach freedom, only to find the world he once knew is gone. Grim has disappeared, leaving utter chaos. Fate, along with other Reapers, have taken over his home, the realm of Nekroun Earth.
Along with Demons and Angels, Fate has demanded the girl that Cadeus saved be found. Can Cadeus get to her first? Or will she end up in the hands of a fate she’s been running from?
Firsltly I would like to give a huge thanks to the lovely R.S. Broadhead for kindly providing me with a copy of “Defiance” to read and review.
This is my first time reading anything written by her BUT I without a doubt will be stalking her social media waiting for new books to be released……Another author to add to my top list and another one to stalk 🙂
From the very first chapter this book blows you away….and I mean literally.
The characters jump out at you, begging you to like them, Ryker is a funny onion and I do hope we get to see more of him.
Cade is different from other Reapers.
He feels when he shouldn’t. He doesn’t understand why he does where no one else does.
Going against the order and trying to save a family that was destined to die lands him in a lifetime of imprisonment and from there everything changes for him.
I loved the whole concept with reapers, Fate, Grim and the Angels and Demons.
Their enemies are powerful, but with some unimaginable help they get set on the right path at learning how to defeat them. When they find one piece of this freak show of a puzzle they have to put together, all hell breaks loose, keeping you enthralled. It was one helluva page turner, leaving me wanting more.
This book leaves you literally screaming for more!
