Reaping me Softly by Kate Evangelista

Publication Date:October 30th 2012
Publisher:Omnific Publishing
Paperback, 220 pages
Useful Info: Goodreads, Author's Website

Ever since a near-death-experience on the operating table, seventeen-year-old Arianne Wilson can see dead people. Just as she’s learned to accept her new-found talents, she discovers that the boy she’s had a crush on since freshman year, Niko Clark, is a Reaper.

At last they have something in common, but that doesn’t mean life is getting any easier. All while facing merciless bullying from the most powerful girl in school, Arianne’s world is turned upside down after Niko accidentally reaps the soul of someone she loves. This sends them both into a spiral that threatens to end Arianne’s life. But will Niko break his own Reaper’s code to save her? And what would the consequences be if he did?

After reading Taste by Kate Evangelista I have to admit that I was "stalking" the author for her next release. I loved so much Kate's debut novel and her writing style is right up my alley, so I was certain that there's no way that she could write a story I wouldn't love. And after reading Reaping me Softly, I'm glad to say that I couldn't be more right about this author!

Kate Evangelista is an amazing storyteller, an author with a unique voice and a talent to create different worlds, worlds that suck you in and completely mesmerise you. Worlds that are magical but hold a certain dark quality along with a distinct threat. A threat that everything pure and beautiful in this world can shatter any minute while there's also a promise that this pureness can overcome any darkness. All those elements are perfectly balanced in Evangelista's work and that is maybe what makes me love her stories so much. Well, one of the reasons anyway!

Reaping me Softly is the story of Ariane and Niko, a human and a Reaper, who meet and fall in love against all odds. But this is so much more than a teen paranormal romance story. Evangelista also deals with death and grief in her newest novel, along with the hot topic of bullying. And all that wrapped in a sweet and incredible love story.

I won't say anything about the plot. Only that it's even paced and keeps you turning the pages of this book until you reach the last one. The character development is pretty good with both main and secondary characters being explored. Especially those glimpses into Death's thoughts were priceless!

The ending just left me wanting for more. Seriously, there was no need for things to end that way and make us wait for so long until the second book is released... I'm kidding, the way things turned at the end and the ending, even if a little bit cliffhangerish, is just perfect.

All in all, Kate Evangelista is among the authors I discovered this year and whose work I will stalk because simply, I love everything about it! From Taste to Reaping me Softly, this author proves that she's is here to stay!
