Kiss Me Dead
By- Dale Ibitz
Genre- New Adult Urban Fantasy/Romantic Suspense
One curse . . .
Christian, a nineteen-year-old reaper-human hybrid enslaved to the Other World to harvest souls, earns his freedom by making a bargain with the Goddess of Death. As part of the bargain, he’s been cursed with the kiss of death.
One kiss . . .
The only way Christian can break his curse is for an angel to kiss him. Willingly. He finds Brooke, a nineteen-year-old descendant of a Naphil whose destiny is to hunt rogue reapers, suffocating in a semi-agoraphobic cocoon since witnessing a reaper steal her brother’s soul.
Two destinies . . .
Christian has found the angel who can break his curse, and the seduction begins. To break her phobia’s hold, Brooke embraces her angelic role and makes it her mission to kill rogue reapers to avenge her brother’s murder. Christian can break his curse by kissing Brooke dead . . . but will she figure out his game and kill him first?
I found this story to be fresh, a new look at a subject done a whole lot of ways, and it is not lacking. I loved Brooke and Christian, loathed William, tolerated Lily, well as you can see I was absorbed by the book. There was so much going on at times I had to stop and think my way clear again, I did get lost one or two times. It was pretty much me, I got twisted by my own mind. What these characters went through; I still shudder at some of the happenings. I enjoyed the love aspect of it as well, it was just what I needed to happen. The strength and compassion that Brooke possesses makes her an absolute “angel”.
This book needs to be read to be appreciated, it twists and turns and then boom your world bottoms out. I honestly am very much looking forward to the second book, I want (need) to know more. The only semi complaint I might have is that I would like a little more background on Brooke herself, there is a lot untold there, in my opinion. My mind boggles with ideas of what could happen next. I want to thank the author for making her book available to me to read and review, I enjoyed it. I give Kiss Me Dead 4 stars.
P.S. I went and bought Dale Ibitz's other books...the first 3 that is, I cannot wait to dive in!
Dale’s a fan of hiking and the outdoors, seriously good writing, and she never, ever starts the day without chocolate and coffee (preferably together). Music inspires her, and she likes to listen to alternative metal.
If you were to visit Dale’s house, you'd meet her husband, 2 kids, their dog Lea (most people simply refer to her as The Beast...and for good reason), their cat Luna (affectionately known as Loony Luna), and a couple of loud-beaked parakeets.
