This time, as I leaned against him, a tear did escape me, rolling slowly down my cheek. I was surprised by the show of emotion, but then, I had just nearly been killed by an extremist group mere days ago. I had just made a bargain with a demon I wasn’t sure I could entirely trust. And the one thing that could bind the Reaper and help my dad continued to elude us, leaving everyone’s morale at an all-time low. Throw in a spell of insomnia, and it was any wonder I wasn’t outright bawling. I’d known people to have bigger outbursts just from missing a meal.I seriously love this book. Really, everything about it appeals to me. Be it the fantastic strong female main character who has some terrible truths and experiences and just comes out even more determined and powerful- I may have wanted to butt in and hug her occasionally with the strong moments of sadness, but she held her own in every unknown situation. To the magical world with hidden libraries, crazy powers, Irish setting and history. Or the non-stop action with this rag-tag group facing one dangerous encounter after another be it with demons, the slaugh, witch hunters or an ultimate evil closer to home. And it doesn't hurt that the book package is very pretty with that cover!
