Raven's Breath by Tish Thawer
Published April 15th 2014
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Raven can breathe life into you, or siphon the life from you...the choice is yours.
They say your life flashes before your eyes when you die. But what you didn't know...your last thoughts determine whether Raven becomes your grim reaper or your saving grace.
Death has a sinister plan, but his favorite female reaper has been given a new power that will combat his secret mission. The only issue...she hasn't discovered it yet.
Will Raven put the pieces together in time, or will Purgatory be destroyed forever?
Raven's Breath is crazy, ridiculous and amazing!
And that's "ridiculous" in a good way.
A very good way.
I have to confess that I have a strange fascination with stories about Death. Capitol D. But really it's only strange to the people I mention it to. Some people like vampires, some people like zombies. I like grim reapers and lords of the Underworld. And the occasional angel. Which this also has! Yay!
As much as I enjoy stories like this I don't read them too often, so when I do I'm instantly caught up in them.
And this, obviously, was no exception.
The characters are so fun, definitely a bunch I enjoyed spending time with. And wouldn't mind spending more time with in the future.
It's such a great new imaginative world. And the way it flows is amazing I just fell into it and didn't realize how far in I was until I had to stop.
Which I didn't want to do, it's books like this that make me wish I could pause everything else and just read.
