I received this book from the author, in exchange for an honest review.
Summary: Death: a word Mia Baron was all too familiar with since the murder of her parents when she was a young girl. Her drive for vengeance was the reason she became a Death Dealer—a soul guide through the spirit realm—signing her life away in her own blood. Pain forged a concrete wall around her heart and no one or nothing would ever penetrate it…until she got what she desired most—revenge.
Deacon Gage craves justice for his own horrific tragedy that forced him into the same life Mia chose, with the same promise of vengeance dangling just out of reach. His expert training makes him an Elite—one of the few Death Dealers to ever achieve such a status—and no one can shift his focus from the blood he seeks.
But when the two are partnered for yet another job and a heart-shattering case rips open Mia’s heart, Deacon realizes he’s the only one who can save her…at a price that might be too much to pay: opening his heart to her. The clock is ticking and her life hangs on the balance of whether he can truly let go or will hold onto his desire for blood.
Thoughts: Excellent story. I found the idea of this novella really intriguing. Death Dealer is a fast read. A story that is death and vengeance, but a sweet romance as well. Having lost a parent at a young age, it was easy to related to Mia and many of her emotions. Mia and Deacon are both strong characters - bent on their missions. But there attraction for each other slowly seeps into their conscious. The reaction the two characters have to their mutual attraction is delicious and worded beautifully by Robertson. A great beginning to a new series. I definitely recommended reading this one.
Score: 4 Stars
