Certain events have a way of telling you fate is a fickle thing. Cassandra is a former reaper, but reaping souls is not a job you can leave without consequences. She made a decision that will set things in motion and has no idea the trickle-down effect it will cause.
Putting a contract on someone is dangerous, but it gets even more severe when you hire a member of the Forgotten Brotherhood to carry it out. Alexei Medvedev receives Cassandra’s contract, and does his due diligence; he investigates her because he learned a long time ago, not all beings are meant to be put down. In his investigation, he makes a decision that will change everything and turns everything he thought he knew upside down. Can Alexei save Cassandra from the unknown party who put a hit on her, or will he be another pawn in the game?
This one brought out the emotions, and it tugs the heart, all while making you smile and laugh. You’re introduced to Alexei in the first book of the series, but to get his backstory was heartwrenching. I absolutely adore Alexei, and Cassandra was a firecracker! She faced her own revelations, and it was interesting to watch the consequences and the plot twist play out. This is a fantastic series, and I need more!
