And now, a lovely review of SCYTHE DOES MATTER
The brilliant and astute Carrie Reads A Lot has reviewed Book #2 of THE RELUCTANT REAPER series. Here’s what she has to say:
These books are so silly and fun to read! They are jam packed with puns and wordplay enough to make even the most serious of readers chuckle. How can you not love an author that works so hard at weaving in a million and one adorable references?
This book picks up immediately where Book 1 left off. Poor Kirsty is still trying to get her life back, while at the same time working on her “life” in Hell with Dante. Dante continues to be yummy and awesome, though not a true Reaper anymore. After how the first book ended, Kirsty finally decides to take control of her afterlife and makes real plans.
There are a lot of antics and famous faces, as well as some familiar faces from Kirsty’s original life that swing by for this installment. I’m completely in love with these books and cannot wait to see where they take me. If you at all enjoy a good pun every now and then (or more often than that) — check this series out! You won’t regret it.
“Silly and fun.” She gets me!
Don’t look for an intellectual challenge (although you can play spot the pop culture references with your friends) or an emotional roller coaster ride. These books are a palette cleanser between one heart-wrenching novel and the next. When you need to re-charge, pick up this series.
Oh, sure. It’s got elements of urban fantasy and paranormal romance, but it’s first and foremost humor. So if you want a good laugh plus a unique story, like, say, Christopher Moore, here you go.
