When it comes to death and love…only one is guaranteed.
Four decades ago Nora died. A tragic event for someone so young; however, four decades ago Nora was also given a second chance to walk among the living.
A Death Warden with a mysterious past, her job is to escort the newly expired towards the light, battling with the Soul Hunters who want the freshly dead to help with their own evil purposes buried in the dark.
When Nora’s charges suddenly become targets, she realizes that the hunters are after far more than just souls. A shift in power between good and evil threatens to change everything, risking the lives of the only family Nora has ever known.
Devastated and angry, she’s forced to face the man she once loved - a man who chose darkness over her - in order to find the answers she needs to stop the horror from escalating. Yet, while a lost relationship still haunts her broken heart, a new Warden with secrets of his own will enter the mix and quickly alter everything Nora believed to be true.
Death is unavoidable…but sometimes, so is love.
I received an e-ARC from Hallowed Ink Press through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This fact in no shape or form affects my review. Except for the existence of the review itself. I received no compensation for this review in any way.This is my honest opinion of the work.
I got about maybe 50+% through this book and then I just couldn't anymore. I put it down to read something else. It took me about an entire week to read that other book and when I returned to this one, there was literally nothing that made me want to continue reading it.
I just wasn't into it. It's really hard to make me DNF, because even if I'm not liking it, I still want to find out how it ends. With this one, even though there was mystery to the plot, it didn't draw me in and make me want to read and find out more. Yeah there was a hot guy with an accent, but it still didn't make me care enough about the characters or the plot.
I was really disappointed though that I didn't like the story enough to want to continue on because the synopsis sounds fabulous. I just don't want to spend my time on a bland book that doesn't draw me in when I could be reading other things.
I wouldn't say that it's so terrible that I wouldn't recommend it at all, but if you're willing to take a shot, I hope you like it!
