So throughout this first half of this book I was literally like what in the crap is going on here? I'm not going to lie though somewhere throughout the last half of the book, I ended up kinda liking it. It somehow pulled me in and now I need to know what happens next.

Ellie is a normal 17 year old girl. Strange nightmares have been haunting her for months. And her dad is a total jerk but she's a normal kid. Until she finds out that she holds a power so strong, she's basically the leader in stopping a war that could be coming any second. Will, her guardian, wakes up her powers. He also helps her remember her past lives and trains her to fight until all of her memories come back. Because she's apparently been fighting this war for centuries and she's older than dirt. But she's reincarnated into a human girl, although she's strong and she has some super weapons.. she can be killed. Oh she hunts reapers who prey on human souls and flesh.

Obviously the premise is a little wonky and I'm not going to lie, the writing isn't always the greatest. But it's not bad really. If you can look past some of the cheesy lines between Ellie and her friends, the majority of the book towards the end is pretty good. I really think her dad is also up to something suspicious but I'm not sure yet.

I don't know what if I'll recommend this series or not yet. I'll read the next book and I'll let you know if it continues on. I'm really hoping it'll get better in the next book.

  1. I think the second book in this series really sets the book up better. There is so many things that are discovered in the second book that it makes the world come together much better than this first book. I still haven't read the last book so I can't completely speak highly of the whole series but I would at least try book two if I were you.

    Thanks for the great review!

    1. That's what I was kinda thinking would happen but this first book is a rocky start.

    1. Honestly if I could go back, knowing what I know now..I wouldn't read it. I am curious about the next book so I'll probably pick that up at some point. But if I never did it wouldn't hurt my feelings any.
