Marie Hall ´ 5 DownloadI am a big fan of Marie Hall I enjoy eading what she writes This book is no exception It took me a while before I settle down long enough once I did though the book The Silk Road: A Journey from the High Pamirs and Ili Through Sinkiang and Kansu really took off for me Cian story was as heartbreaking as Eve s I felt for both of them separately and together The storyline was captivating in a genre that is flooded by similar books this will stand out My Initial ReactionI fell in love with Eve and Cian so easily andouted for their Forensic Nursing: A Handbook for Practice romance from the start I also loved the concept for Death s Lover and look forward toeading the next book in the seriesThe CharactersThe characters in Death s Lover were complex and incredibly easy to fall for The story is told from several perspectives which could be a bit jarring at times since the transitions between points of view weren t always immediately clear But it was great to be able to see what was going on in their minds Eve is a witch who projects pretty powerfully I might add her emotions I got the sense that she once had better control perhaps before the death of her husband but as we get to know her she s projecting all over the place I loved this aspect of her because it adds a layer of both honesty and vulnerability that s so endearing You never doubted that what she felt was genuine And perhaps the best word to describe Eve genuine To a fault She s the kind of woman who says what she s thinking because why bother hiding it everyone can feel it anyway God at the Ritz: Attraction to Infinity A Priest Physicist Talks About Science, Sex, Politics, and Religion right She s also clearly powerful though Ieally wish we d gotten to understand her powers a bit better We see bits here and there but the only power I got to understand fully was her projection Eve is most powerful when with her sisters Tamryn and Celeste who are also witches Eve s Don't Wake Up relationship with her sisters was a favorite element for me They are clearly very close they tease and nag each other they support each other they kick butt together Again I would haveeally loved to see their powers at a heightened level but I guess that s what makes Death s Lover a paranormal Reduced romanceather than an urban fantasy The sisters own a shop together where they sell their brews and other supplies to both the magical and human communityAnd then there s Cian Sigh Who d have thought the grim Double Betrayal reaper could be so hot and so lovable Cian is a fey in this world there are several castes of fey and he belongs to the caste that work as death or grimeapers basically He s pretty haunted by the job he has and doesn t have hope of love or happiness in life Just the duty of eaping souls He s been around for a millenia so he has all these old mannerisms that are charming and an Irish accent to boot sigh I loved watching Cian battle his desire to protect Eve his sense of what he was and what that meant all alongside the fact that he was falling in love with herThe StoryDeath s Lover was a great love

emotions all over place but I got the impression that before her husband died she had control With this aspect we see a vulnerability to Eve we might not have seen We also see that she is very powerful but the author does not give us much on this It would have be nice to have a better understanding of her powers We see bits and pieces but only her projection power is understood Cian is Death the Grim Reaper but he is not the only Grim Reaper He s haunted by his job numb to feelings and feels he will never love He s been around for a very long time so some of his old speak seeps in with a little Irish accent Sigh Who doesn t like an accent Once he lays eyes on Eve things start to change and when he has to take her soul well something happens to change him The story is told from several perspectives The transition between points of view where not always immediately clear but it was nice to see what was going on in everyone s mind At the start of the book Eve is married and completely in love but something happens to change all this Cian and Eve are both complex characters Eve s emotions are very Dying to Be Ill: True Stories of Medical Deception real and at times heartbreaking Cian battles with himself his desire to protect Eve and the love growing Both characters emotions and struggles come across to theeader With the Octavio's Journey romance Ms Hall does a great job building up to those moments in the book We feel the heat just before an all consuming kiss At the end Ieally felt for Cian and his plight The fae especially the Grim Reapers are hated it s not fully explained why and somethings are said between Eve and Cian that hurts his feelings I wanted to smack Eve at that moment when things where Philosophy in Social Work revealed and all she could do was the poor meoutine As for the ending it wasn tHer Emotions All Over
