A Reaper Made by Liz Long

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.

 My Review

Grace is a reaper. She was a nurse in life and when she died she was given the option to continue helping souls cross over and she accepted. Now she spends her days in a nursing home gently easing the recently departed to their final destination. She likes it. But then reapers start disappearing. She and her mentor Tully must team up with a witch friend to find out who is taking the reapers and why. It could be dangerous and they have been told to stay out of it, but Grace was never one to shy away from helping. Now Grace’s still living sister is involved and they have to save her before she becomes one of the deceased.
This book started strong and kept me hooked. I like how the dialog is modern and believable. The characters are funny and likeable and the story is interesting. The story flows well and the pace is quick. The characters have a good dynamic and range of emotions. It was a pretty good read. I give it a solid 4 stars.
