He’s handsome, reliable, and punctual—the perfect gentleman when you want him to be. But this dream man is Death’s best agent—and now he’s got more than his soul to lose…
One act of mercy before dying was all it took to turn soldier David Anderson into a reaper—an immortal who guides souls-of-untimely-death into the afterlife. But the closer he gets to atoning for his mortal sin and finally escaping merciless Fate, the more he feels his own humanity slipping away for good. Until he encounters Sarah Griffith. This skeptical scientist can’t be influenced by his powers—even though she has an unsuspected talent for sensing the dead. And her honesty and irreverent sense of humor reignite his reason for living—and a passion he can’t afford to feel. Now Fate has summoned David to make a devastating last harvest. And he’ll break every hellishly-strict netherworld rule to save Sarah...and gamble on a choice even an immortal can’t win
The novel itself introduces the characters that seem to set a scene for later on ( a series in the making? I hope!) but also to creates a great genre for Reapers. Sjoberg has created Reapers of her own making and gives you enough tease to want to learn more about her creatures.
Not trying to sound like the old perfume ads, but if you love Sherrilyn Kenyon you will like Grave Intentions. I have hope that Sjoberg can carve out her own niche of followers as Kenyon has done over the years. With this debut she has definitely set that bar high for her self. Bravo and I bow down, you gave a book I have been in search of to take me away.
