She fled in the dead of night,
Where will she run?
No stone left unturned,
Who will feel my wrath?
A few steps behind her every move,
How many more will suffer?
Her punishment will be severe,
When will she be aware?
With each swing of her scythe,
Why does it make me writhe?
When Selene left us in pursuit of her sister,
She had no idea what she let loose.
Now I hunt her day and night,
Collecting her secrets in plain sight.
She doesn’t have long until her time runs out,
It’s her fault the four of us have feelings we can’t ignore.
If she finds out we’ve fucked with her plans,
We might just find ourselves dead with her scythe on our foreheads.
The Reaper Incarnate was one of my favourite stories from the Violent Tendencies Anthology so I was super excited to read the story that followed. Some books you can get away with reading the prequel after the first story but with this one, I would definitely jump in at the very beginning – set yourself up right for all the darkness and crazy because it’s one hell of a ride.
In the first part of the story, Selene is separated from her guys, having left them to find her sister. Rene and Bond did a brilliant job of capturing the emotions experienced by each of the characters and writing in a way that the reader can feel them in every word.
In the second part of the story Selene gets her boys back and we readers get the schmexy time we’ve all been waiting for (don’t tell me you haven’t been waiting for a scene with all five of them!). We also see revelations galore and not just for Selene.
Finally, we have a cliffhanger, and oh what a cliffhanger it is! As much as I dislike cliffhangers I’m grateful for this one – it means that the unhinged fun is set to continue and I need to read more from this crazy harem.
