Now that he has to become even more personally involved in her protection, Tevin finds himself having a hard time separating his sworn duty and pure curiosity. What does make Alexcia tick?

So Shall I Reap is the first installment in an exciting new young adult paranormal series.



My Review:

What a dark, unique novel!  Kathy-Lynn Cross creates a mesmerizing mythological world in this book. From angels and demons, to grim reapers and bridge crossers, the world the author creates draws on several mythologies, expertly weaving them into a stunning story! And not only is the world she creates amazing, but she brings in compelling characters.
Alexia is a strong, rebellious teenager who has a secret. Every night in her dreams, she battles the same creatures, fighting for both her life and her sanity—nearly losing both repeatedly. What she doesn’t know is that the creatures from her dreams are real, as is the danger.

Tevin is a reaper—Alexia’s reaper. When only a child, Alexia’s name came up to be reaped, and Tevin had the job to collect her soul. But as she lay in the hospital, something extraordinary happened—she looked at him and called him by name. Stunned, the reaper couldn’t bring himself to collect her soul and instead found himself protecting her.

I love how Kathy-Lynn portrays this grim reaper! So often in paranormal books, the author attempts to humanize paranormal creatures—making them more human than otherworldly. Kathy-Lynn doesn’t do this. Instead, she paints a clear picture of a creature quite inhuman, with little compassion or empathy—except when it comes to Alexia. Tevin finds himself compelled to protect her. He is the type of character I adore!!!

I loved this book from cover to cover. The story is compelling, and the characters are even more compelling! Kathy-Lynn Cross is a brilliant author and I look forward to reading more from her. I would recommend So Shall I Reap to all who love paranormal books, and aren’t afraid of things that go bump in the night.

Ebook - All the way to Heavin
Anica Tomlin, business major, has just learned that the man she's been planning her future around, her Global Finance professor, already has a beautiful wife and family. Ani cashes in her graduation gift to herself a little early—a trip to Tuscany—but from the moment she boards the wrong train in Pisa, her plans for solitude and self-indulgence begin to unravel around her.
When a bicycle accident thrusts Ani into the skilled hands of the dashing Dr. Cosimo Lazzaro, she reluctantly accepts his invitation to recover in his family's country villa, perched on a hilltop surrounded by the Lazzaro olive groves. But it's been a black year for olive growers all over Italy, and generations of tradition are being put to the test like never before.
Ani is swept up in the drama of life in Tuscany, the convergence of old and new, and the passions that drive people to pursue the desires of their hearts. Just as Ani begins to get her feet under her again, an unexpected turn of events leaves her doubting the very existence of happily-ever-after, unless she can learn to trust the desires of her own heart.
Although All the Way to Heaven is a stand-alone novel, it is the first book in The Fallout Series, a collection of sweet contemporary romances that follow characters featured in the first book.
