REVIEW - Dead Reaper Walking by Mina Carter


Book Title - Dead Reaper Walking
Author - Mina Carter
Publisher - Blue Hedgehog Press

Underage witches, a breakout from demon prison and a new hellgate... What could go wrong?

Reaper extraordinaire, Laney Larson, is stuck in Liberty, Oakwood of all places, for two reasons. One, there's way more paranormal activity going on than normal for a little town like Liberty. And two, a sexy as hell cop called Troy.

So when the proverbial hits the fan and they get wind of a demon break-out from the third hell, a prison even the demon king himself won't set foot in, what's a reaper to do but strap on her blades and help track the escapee down? But then the creature takes her man, and all bets are off.

A reaper, a demon and a cop...will Death claim them all, or just one?



Mina was born and raised in the East Farthing of Middle Earth (otherwise known as the Midlands, England) and spend her childhood learning all the sorts of things generally required of a professional adventurer. Able to ride, box, shoot, make and read maps, make chainmail and use a broadsword (with varying degrees of efficiency) she was disgusted to find that adventuring is not considered a suitable occupation these days.

So, instead of slaying dragons and hunting vampires and the like, Mina spends her days writing about hot shifters, government conspiracies and vampire lords with more than their fair share of RAWR. Turns out wanna-be adventurers have quite the turn of imagination after all...

(But she keeps that sword sharp, just in case the writing career is just a dream and she really *is* an adventurer.)

The boring part: A full time author and cover artist, Mina can usually be found hunched over a keyboard or graphics tablet, frantically trying to get the images and words in her head out and onto the screen before they drive her mad. She's addicted to coffee and would like to be addicted to chocolate, but unfortunately chocolate dislikes her



This is the first story I have read from Mina Carter. This is the second book and I haven't read the first one yet, but plan to in the very near future. I have to admit that the characters are very entertaining. This is the first book I have read that involved a reaper who can talk to humans. The two lead characters are Laney Larson and Troy the hunky policeman had me laughing throughout the book.

Laney Larson is a reaper. Death to be exact. She looks human but is far from it. She fights demons and anything else that gets in her way. She is a smart mouthed girl who doesn't think before she does anything. Why should she, she is a reaper, isn't like she can die or anything. She ends up in Troys little city named Liberty, Oakwood and everything falls apart. Having to deal with a demon is nothing much but falling in love with a human is not something she should ever do but Troy and her fall for each other quick. She is to take the souls of the dead but when her love Troy may end up dead, she does something she should never do, try to save a life instead of taking one. Big no no in the reaper world.

Troy is a policeman who has seen some crazy crap but meeting a reaper was something new. Laney looked like a human but really wasn't and he wanted this girl badly. He is possessive over her and she fights it all the way. They are made for each other. The sex between them is hot and left me breathless and all I did was read the book. Laney acts tough but on the inside she is scared just like anyone would be. Troy wants to keep her safe but she isn't one to sit back and wait to be told what to do. She knows what needs to be done and she goes and does it!

Can't wait to read more from this author. I really liked these two characters. I am so happy I have a new book couple to look forward too.
