    Well , Marie Hall is back and this time it's not fairy tales she's messing with oh no it's every preconceived idea we have about the Grim Reaper! Now I've noticed quite a few books cropping up that feature reapers but this idea of them being connected to the Fae is a completely fresh idea. Add in a few vampires and even the odd werewolf then this new series The Eternal Lovers is all set to raise this talented authors standing even higher!Frenzy may have started out as a member of the Fae court but when the woman he loved was brutally murdered there was nothing in either realm that could control his grief. Frenzy lost all reason and his lust for spilling blood could not be appeased. Now centuries later he is a Reaper and always ready to claim the souls of those mortals who he now despises but when attempting to claim the soul of a vampire attack he finds himself embroiled in a race to save both supernatural and mortal lives.Mila is the last true Seer alive. Gifted with the power of visions that could alter the life of all mankind. She realises that she's been exposed and goes on the run but is tracked down by vampires who infect her with their venom. Mila begs the stranger who saves her for true death but Frenzy refuses and worse he takes her away claiming that he will protect her. Mila cannot allow herself to be taken prisoner and struggles to convince him that she truly would be better off dead but Frenzy is just as stubborn as Mila . There's just something about her that calls to him but is it just attraction or is it more than that? Has fate brought these two people together? There's a darkness stalking Mila and she will have to trust Frenzy implicitly if she hopes to save the world!This book is the second in this series and follows on from Deaths Lover but features characters that for this reader just lit up the page! I absolutely adored Frenzy and what a name ! He is such an angry cold character when we first meet him and yet the author cleverly gives us an insight into his true personality when he protects a lone wolf . He is a hard male but he's not a heartless one. As for Mila well she is such a brave character and prepared to risk everything for the sake of good. She's one of those who the reader really gets behind and the chemistry between these two characters is fiery !This is another great book from Ms Hall , filled with passion and adventure. Love and hate, life and death, this book has it all. Written with panache and fast paced there is never a dull moment in this book. An unexpected ending and I can't wait to read more. I don't feel it is essential to have read the previous book as this does work as a standalone but it would be a shame to miss out on this series.

    Mila has a big secret. She is a seer. A human with a gift so rare, that it's almost too dangerous for the human born with it against other species, if they happen to get their hands on her. Working with an élite San Francisco task force, her job was to use her powers and bring justice to the supernatural that have gone rogue. Unfortunately the fact that Mila is a seer was leaked, and now the very same people she was hunting is out to get her.The only thing Mila wants to do is die, upon being discovered. But Lise, a woman who seem to be good at helping out the others has different plans for her. Now, Frenzy the reluctant grim reaper is forced to baby sit the human turned hybrid and prevent her from dying or getting into the wrong hands. Easier said then done.Great book. I love paranormal, so I was naturally drawn to it from the moment I saw its announcement. I never read the first book, but that's okay - it follows a different set of characters anyway.I adore the world that Hall has created. A paranormal I really enjoyed. The vampires are scary, thus making some of the stuff in the book a bit cringe worthy. Making this a slightly more scarier take on some of the paranormal books out there, a bit more....bloodier, meaner.Mile and Frenzy are by no means perfect. She knows that her gift in the wrong hands can be devastating to the society. When all she really wanted to do was die, she ends up being saved in a form of a vampire/werewolf hybrid - which is also slightly original in this book. The last thing she wanted to become was one of the creatures, so she tries her best at times to put an end to herself in hopes of saving the human races.Frenzy was well.. he is a grim reaper. He isn't all that glad about his job and kind of wants out. So when Lise comes to him for his help, the last thing he wants is to baby-sit a human (a race he seems to hate)I liked the story, I found it dark and bloody and overall well put together. The romance wasn't perfect, but well done and still sizzled. You can tell there is attraction, but it's slow to build at the beginning as they fumble their way through. What I had an issue with was there was a lot of talking and discussing what she is and why she wants to die and why she won't eat the squire. Seriously like.. for 25% of the book is just the same conversation. When the action did pick up, I found it really enjoyable and well paced. Yes, there was some dragging and slow pace - but it did pick up.In the end, I will be following more of this series.I got a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange of an honest review.

    My Initial Reaction... I have to admit, I really missed Eve and Cian... I just didn't fall for Frenzy and Mila as easily. But Death's Redemption was very compelling, HOT (as I've come to expect from Marie Hall) and I'm increasingly curious about what Lise has up her sleeves. The Characters... It took me a little bit longer to get into the characters in Death's Redemption than I would have liked - but I did eventually come to love them... once they got over their hangups. See, you've got Mila who's a seer. In this world (which I'm addicted to, BTW), that's an extremely rare and coveted trait. But when Mila gets attacked by a group of vampires seeking to control her powers, she knows that she can't let them get that control. So she seeks the only other alternative she can think of - death. Now on a level, you've got to admire a girl who's that determined. But - when Frenzy and Lise step in and change the course of things, Mila takes WAY TOO LONG to get a clue. Yes, this isn't what you wanted. It's a hard adjustment. I get it. Really I do. But come on! Would you stop trying to kill yourself and realize that something much bigger is going on? Oh - and have you really not noticed that you've got this incredibly gorgeous fae/reaper trying to help you? GET A CLUE! That being said, when she finally did get a clue - I grew to love her. I just wished it hadn't taken so long. And then there's Frenzy, who has his own hangup - he loved a woman once and it went really badly. And he hasn't gotten over it. Just as I grew tired of Mila's incessant desire to die, I got over Frenzy's internal "poor me, I've loved and I can't love again." But once that passed - and it did, I think quicker than Mila's longing for death - I loved him too. And their romance really worked for me - it took them quite a while to figure it out and there was an awkwardness that was very believable. And they're both kinda messed up, so they just fit. I think I would have liked for them to get over themselves more quickly, since there was a lot of repetition of the same sentiments over and over, but by the last 60% things started to flow really well. The Story... For me the strength in Death's Redemption and this series in general is the world. I LOVE the fantasy world Marie Hall has built - it has so many layers and there's still so much to learn. She's given us enough to understand what's going on, but there's a lot of mystery and it's all bound up in Lise for me. She's one of the fates and she's constantly interfering. She's got an agenda and I'm not 100% sure I understand it (I don't think I'm supposed to yet) but I'm so curious to understand what this chic has up her sleeve. First she meddled with Eve and Cian. Now Mila and Frenzy. What's next?The plot for Death's Redemption is all bound up in Mila and her powers as a seer. She's one of the last remaining seer's in the world and everyone - EVERYTHING - powerful wants to control her. She's hunted - most worryingly by the Shadow. I loved the story behind the shadow and everything surrounding it. Terrific evil and lots of twists to go with that element. I loved the glimpses we got of the fae world and only wish there were more of that too!Concluding Sentiments... Although I had some issues with the characters to begin with, they grew on me and I'm still totally enthralled by the world in Death's Redemption. I look forward to seeing more of it and especially Lise in the next book! This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

    This was my first Marie Hall book, but Death's Redemption was fantastic! I didn't realize this was the second book in the series. I didn't feel as if I was missing any pertinent information about this world or the characters in it. This book had everything that makes me fall in love with a story like this: a hero and heroine who argue all the time as a means to divert the sexual energy swirling around them, humorous dialogue, funny situations, a bit of mythology, danger and suspense, and scorching hot sex.I absolutely adored this pairing of Frenzy aka Death aka The Grim Reaper and Mila, the Seer. Mila was feisty and stubborn, and I loved that the angrier she got, the more pronounced her brogue became. She was stubborn and had quite a temper on her. But Frenzy matched it with his own stubbornness and the endearing quality of not knowing how to deal with humans in general. There may have been some Fae arrogance involved as well. Despite the verbal sparring, they could be mature and had the decency to apologize when either one of them was in the wrong. I really enjoyed the natural and believable progression of their character arcs. It took Mila quite a long time to accept her new reality and let go of the past. Frenzy's blunt but honest approach wasn't always the best way, but it allowed for some great moments of compassion and nurturing to come forth.Frenzy tried again, but not even a flicker of awareness crossed her face. “You have been such a pain in my ass,” he growled, and then sighed. “And I’d be really pissed if you left me now.”The suspense was really good, killing methods were graphic enough to be effective; just the right amount of wickedness and gore. Frenzy's methods were at times rather sexy. The sex scenes were scorching hot, especially their first time. Well, every other time after that as well. If you're familiar with the Ascension series by Caris Roane, or Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark, then you'll love this.The story flowed nicely and was well paced. I was flipping pages well into the wee hours of the morning. I will definitely check out the first book, and purchase a print copy of this for my personal collection of favorites. I can't recommend this highly enough.Hook Scenes (aside from the sex)“Is that the way it’s gonna be with us, then? You say no, I say okay?” she asked in a low, heated whisper, because if she said it any louder she’d scream and act like a raving banshee.Giving her that wicked smile of his again, he didn’t say another word. But he didn’t have to.“Chauvinistic pig,” she spat. “If I’m such a nuisance, why’d ye save me, then?” Mila had worked hard at softening the hard brogue, and slipping up was a sure sign she was seconds from completely losing her head.“O’Fallen—”“It’s bloody Mila!”~*~Upper lip curling, he lifted her in his arms until they were nose to nose. “Stop feeling sorry for yourself.”And then he unceremoniously dumped her.~*~Forgetting herself, she turned toward him and her eyes bulged. “You’re naked!”“It’s what one tends to do in their home when it’s time to sleep,” he growled, now beginning to visibly get upset. And it seemed the more upset he got, the harder he got.His cock was long and quickly turning rigid. She tried to look away without seeming like it affected her, but she knew her eyes were enormous in her face and her heart was definitely doing a strange stuttering.“Stop acting like such a virgin. This isn’t for you.”**I received an ARC from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review.**

    Wow! Death's Redemption by Marie hall is not your Mama’s vampire book. If you like your vampires sexy and charming, it is not happening. If you like your shifters handsomely tough, not in this book. If you would like an edgy, gritty look at what like would really be like with predators of the other kind running around, the yep, this is it. I was pulled in from the very beginning, feeling like I was with running with Mila to escape the vampires. Then I felt her pain, as she was attack. The description of her afterwards is compellingly graphic. By the time the Shadow makes a true entrance, (not the glimpse seen as the beginning) I thought this might not be romance but maybe romantic horror. Is there a subgroup of this, where Death is the good guy? Is this an easy read, if you like you romance nice and tidy? No. But if you like edge of the chair, scary, well written with unusually flawed but captivating heroes, then this is the read for you. Yes!Copy provided by NetGalley for an honest review.

    Full Review @To Follow...http://www.abookishescape.com/2014/06...OMgee that ending! Loved it! I have to admit I wasn’t sure how Ms Hall would pull off the connection between these two hot heads but it was perfect! We are introduced to new characters even though I missed quite a few from the previous novel they were great! I’m hoping we will get to see from all of these wonderful characters again. This can be read as a stand alone but don't miss out on either story. So far Ms. Hall has done an amazing job with these different yet very intriguing story lines. I cant wait to see what she throws our way next! This series is absolutely killer I cant wait to see more!My Rating4.0 Serial Killer, Vampire Poison, Deaths Kiss, Shifter Bite, Lone Wolf, Apartment Fight, Lake Bath, Frenzy, Mercury, Amber, Woods, Warning, Queen, Box, Promise, Mother, Crone, Fate, Chaos, Death, Seer, Union, Love Filled Stars!

    After taking the "bad guys" of fairy tales (Hook, Big Bad Wolf, the Mad Hatter) and making them heroes, is it any surprise that Marie Hall would take on the idea of making the Grim Reaper a hero? Not really! :)Mila is working in San Francisco with a task force that runs her amok with a vicious group of vampires. Part of the problem is Mila's special talents. She is able to see the future. But this talent needs to remain a secret or she will be hunted. When her secret leaks, a group of rogue vampires want her - bad. Her talent is something that they will kill to possess. When all hope seems lost, Mila stumbles upon Frenzy - a grim reaper with a depressing past - and everything changes for them both. Instead of being willing to call it quits, Frenzy is now willing to fight for Mila - even if it means fighting against her.For the full review, please go to http://www.thewindowseat13.com/2014/0...

    I like going into a book expecting one thing, and the author, writing, and story give me pleasant surprises. For some reason, I thought this was going to be a fluffy story, hot sex thrown in to add some spice in between the suspense. But, what I got was a well written story-line, fleshed out characters, plus mystery and suspense. The story centers around a grim reaper, part of the dark Fae, and a human woman who can see the future. You’ll love how strong Mila is, even the hero commented multiple times how she was not letting anything keep her down. The hero, Frenzy, was dealing with his own demons, hating his life and how he worked for the dark Fae queen, and he also did not want to help a lowly human. I enjoyed the author’s additions to Fae mythology, and even if you aren’t familiar with this type of paranormal genre, you won’t be lost because most of the story remains in the human realm.

    Oh I am just so enamored with this one. I thought the first book was hot... I can't wait for the next book. One of the many things I love is how each book has its own voice. The voice of Death's Redemption rung loud and clear. Marie Hall has a way of creating worlds and adventures so vivid, you can't help but get lost.

    I wanted to like this book. Fae + vamps + shifters + gifted humans in a paranormal romance has the makings of a recipe for success with me. Unfortunately this one fell flat. I think there was a good idea to start with here, but the end result was not for me. The worldbuilding felt incomplete. It was clear that the supernatural community was out and humans were aware of them, but the relative prominence of the various sects of “others” was not apparent to me. Perhaps this was due to this being the second book in the series and I had not read the first? (The love story of the first book in the series, Cian and his “human witch,” was referenced multiple times and seemed to hold great significance to Frenzy.) I appreciate the author’s attempt to portray the emotional upheaval that would occur if one were changed, from human to something other, against one’s will. Sadly, the transition of Mila from angry, defensive, contemptible shrew to likeable heroine occurs in the blink of an eye. Not to be outdone, Frenzy goes from hating Mila to loving her just as quickly. Therefore, I had trouble investing in the relationship between the leads. The dialogue between them felt stilted and sometimes incomplete. Sex scenes that should have been hot were tepid. Disclosure: I won this book from goodreads First Reads.

    Loved it!I would have never thought myself someone who would enjoy reading a series about the grim reaper, but this one has held my attention and kept me hoping I wasn't really getting near the end of the book. I love Frenzy, and red heads aren't even my type. This is a wonderful read, and I truly enjoyed it. It has left me wanting more.

    "It'd been humbling and disconcerting because there was so much pain inside her it's stolen the breath from his body. He understood that pain, understood the need to guard and keep others at bay. Far from your heart, from your soul... to not let others in because it hurt too damn much."
