But without seeming negative, I did give 4 stars, the book is definitely worth a read and I think there is great potential to develop some of the other characters. I would have no hesitation reading something by this author again in the future as I didn't notice typos etc.. that can be off putting; but I noticed that she has edited in the past
I received a free electronic copy of this book for an impartial review.
This is an action and romance packed story, only thing that could have possibly made it better was a little less 'fade to black' in the love scenes but that is a very personal quirk. It certainly doesn't detract from the quality of the story, or my enthusiasm for reading the sequel. Definitely one of the better books I've read this year.
There is a similar conflict in terms of genre in that the presentation of the main characters is typically romantic; the eye and hair colour of both characters is regularly referred to as are their individual physiques and the clothes and shoes that they, particularly Aerina, wear at any given time. This romantic preoccupation sits uneasily with the science fiction elements of the novel and would, I think, tend to alienate either target readership. I struggled to visualise Alba in any great detail and feel that the emphasis on the appearance of the two main protagonists was developed rather at the expense of depictions of the wider environment: I was left with no mental image of the Delacroix house, Marcus’ house, the sounds and smells of this terraced city state and wish that I could have been given more descriptive detail.
Overall Reaper is a good read and I am certain that with such a competent debut Lyndsey Winsemius’ work will find its niche.
