This review is from: Death's Daughter: A Calliope Reaper-Jones Novel (Mass Market Paperback)
To my knowledge, this is Amber Benson's first solo foray in the author world. She co-wrote The Ghosts of Albion series (on my Amazon wishlist) with Christopher Golden. She's also an actress, producer and director, in short she's a busy girl.
I enjoyed Death's Daughter, it was a bit slow to start but once it was actually into the storyline, the pacing picked up a bit. The characters are fun and I enjoy Calliope's relationship with her family, especially Clio, her younger sister. It's like most people's relationships so easy to relate to.
The storyline is fun. We get to follow Calliope to Hell and back as she completes her 3 tasks as well as dealing with family issues. Just so she can reluctantly take charge of her father's company and therefore save him and find his kidnappers and also save her family's lifestyle at the same time (if you read the book you'll know what I'm talking about here).
The ending was fun but sort of anti-climactic, I felt. Definitely worth a read though and I'll be buying the second book Cat's Claw.
