Review: A Reaper Made by Liz Long

Hi Everyone!

I am so super excited for you all to read today's review, and believe me when I say this is a book that you will want to read.  

But before we get into my thoughts on the book, lets learn a little bit more about it shall we!

Title: A Reaper Made
Author: Liz Long
Release Date: October, 30, 2014


Grace had finally gotten used to her new afterlife as a “Made” – a Reaper who used to be human. When Made Reapers and souls begin disappearing, however, Grace and her mentor Tully suspect demons. Grace’s worst fears are confirmed when her living family is threatened.

She’ll have to break every rule in the Reaper book to save them, including using a little magic to become temporarily human. With the help of Tully and her witchy friend Tessa, Grace goes undercover to save the fates of kidnapped souls – only to discover that demons aren’t working alone. Betrayal and distrust runs deep and Grace discovers that sometimes even Reapers are prone to humanity.

Make sure you add it on Goodreads!


Now that we know a little bit more about the books lets get to know that author!

After reading so many romance novels this book was a breath of fresh air. Not that I dislike romance novels. I love them. But after reading so many in a row, all the emotions and feels happening. You most certainly need a break. haha. I am a fan of scifi paranormal, and this book in no way dissapointed.

You start off by meeting Grace, the main heroine of the story. She is what you would call a "Made." Which is, when a person dies a reaper comes to reap their soul. Help that person move on to the next plane. At first it was just death reaping souls.  When the souls became to many he created the " originals," the very first reapers. So they could help put with all the souls. As the population grew  and more reapers were needed for the increase in souls. The originals created the "mades," Which are people who died and were given the choice to become a reaper or not. They were not "born" reapers like the originals created by death. Grace, after her life ends tragically was given that option. She chose to become a "Made." Helping people in life was something that she loved doing. She was going to school to become a nurse, so helping people in death only seemed like the perfect fit. 

Then there is Tully, who is her mentor so to speak. He helps her learn the ropes of what can and can not be done as reapers. Teaching her all the rules. He is actually a made himself, and was the one who gave grace the choice to become a"made"or move on. He also introduced Grace to thier friend Tessa. Who is a witch, and that is something that comes in handy when Tully realizes that something shady is going down. He believes that "Mades" are being taken, he just doesnt know how. But when he gets confirmation from a reliable source her knows that it isnt a fluke. Grace realizes that the missing reapers need to be found so that thier souls can move on. Since each reaper has a designated area for watching over souls. And bad things happen if souls are left to wander the earth.. Not only that but if who ever is taking reapers is going after "Mads"  that could possibly put her living family in danger.

So Grace, with the help of  Tully and Tessa go on one hell of an adventure to help save all the missing Reapers, protect Graces family, and ultimately save the world. 

OK..maybe not the world, but ive always wanted to say that...haha.There is a whole lot more that goes down in this book, that would be way to spoilerish to mention in my review. I loved this book! I can not recommend it enough. The characters were charismatic, funny, scary, and lovable. The story original, something that I have never read before. It kept me engaged and at the edge of my seat 9 times out of 10.  I never knew what was going to happen next. I was with Grace, Tully, and Tessa through all the ups and downs of this story, and it was fantastic. 

Liz Long after just one book has caught me hook, line, and sinker. In me she has a fan and friend for life. Thanks for allowing me to read and review your book Liz! And thanks Ethan Gregory over at One Guy Guide to Good Reads for introducing me to such a wonderful person and friend.
