Review: Reap by Christina Channelle & Guest Post

The Review
by fu The title of this book is what got me. I had to know what it was about. I had all the ideas in my head from the title alone. They were all blown away and wrong. I have read nothing like this before.
The beginning was a bit slow. Kind of stilted in its flow but the characters intrigued me early on. Dante was the super Mr Nice guy and while normally I like the bad boy, I fell fast and hard for him. There is something about him.
With Briggs I knew he had a story and I might have liked him but I can't stand a guy being mean to a girl when he might really like her. Ugh. It is one of my literary pet peeves.
The story is short and I can't say much without a spoiler alert warning because it is purely plot driven. Yay! Just know it is called Reap so death is involved, the characters are loveable and Mia, the heroine, wakes up in a strange place, with strange people without a clue on how she got there. So yeah it is intriguing.
It is a must read if you are a reaper fan. It is not your run of the mill all the same reaping tale.

The Cover Whore
It is eye catching but sadly common.

How hard it is to say goodbye to a world you created once you type "The End."
It’s hard to the point where I might not actually write, “The End.” That way, if I’m inspired, I can always continue the story. When I do write “The End”, I guess it’s meant to be and their story is complete. In that instance, it might not be as difficult. Although I haven’t let go of a lot of my characters as of yet, my “The Ends” solely on my short stories. Perhaps you’ll find me curled into a ball as I cry myself to sleep, moaning the names of all my characters lost when the time comes.

Blurb- Foreign, or rather unfamiliar, would be the word I would use to describe how I felt.
Faintly, I could hear the glimmer of voices surrounding me in this dark haze, caressing my ears like skin against silk. I felt like I was in a cocoon of sorts, protectively enveloped, quietly drifting in some far-off place. I wanted to stay that way forever.
But we all know that what you want never really seems to happen in the real world.
Something’s not right in Mia’s head.
The first thing is that her name isn’t Mia. In fact, she has no clue what her name is—who she is. All that she knows is that she’s not like the ones who found her: Dante with his kind blue eyes, Amy with her child-like demeanor, James with his questioning gaze.
And Briggs.
The one she cannot decipher no matter how hard she tries.
As Mia tries to fit in with these people, a strange occurrence is amidst outside. And as she finally remembers who she is …
Well, let’s just say that things get a little more complicated.
