Review by: Stacy Palm
A while back I came across a seemingly common paranormal romance novel titled Chase the Dark. I started reading it one night and quickly feel in love! This series is NOT a common or typical paranormal romance, and I promise you that you've read nothing like this series before. It is brilliant mixing demon/angel story lines with mythology, fantasy, and so many other aspects that I cannot list them all. It is a very unique and intriguing story with strong characters and a captivating love interest.
Reap the Shadows is the fourth book in the series and it was easily one of my favorites so far. Piper is finally stepping out as a leader. She is seeing situations for what they are and speaking up about blindly following someone just because you've been trained to think that way. She is starting to stretch her muscles with both magic and diplomacy. In this book we see the reunion of Piper and Ash, and WOW what a reunion it is!
There is a lot that occurs in this book that I will not give away, but I will say that there are some major events in this book that transform the story and I believe is going to change some people leading into the next book.
If you have bypassed this series thinking it not really interesting because it is listed for $2.99-$3.99 I urge you to change your thinking. This author may be self publishing, but she is incredibly talented and an intelligent writer. Book 3 of the series ended up in the final round of the goodreads.com Best Fantasy Books for 2015 along side some of the best New York Times Best Selling authors and it was absolutely a deserved position. I honestly hope you do yourself the favor of getting hooked on this series, it is one of my favorites.
