Review for the Reaper's Rhythm



The Reaper's Rhythm is about 16 year old Kimmie, who leads a fairly ordinary life until her sister kills herself. The problem? She knows it's a lie. There's a gap in her memory and she can't remember what really happened the night she died. Kimmie vows to find out the truth, but when she meets the mysterious Matthew, she'll learn that sometimes the truth isn't always sane.



I enjoyed this book mostly because I had just recently finished reading The Madman's Daughter. The character in that book had all the evidence in front of her, but didn't believe it and depended too much on the two lead male characters. I found Kimmie totally independent and loved how she was able to figure things out fairly quickly and didn't spend 20+ pages circling the same mystery.


Although Kimmie was a refreshing character, I didn't like how the majority of the book WAS predictable, as far as figuring out who the murderer was. But I did get thrown off at some points, which was good.

What I loved most about the character and the overall story was Kimmie's love for her family. She knew that Matthew was completely right when he told her that she really had no point in chasing down her sister's murderer- she was dead and it wouldn't bring her back. But Kimmie did the impossible to make sure that her sister's soul would rest in peace- and keep her family safe, even if it meant questioning reality.

I liked the Reaper's Rhythm; overall, it was a very good read. Like I said, there were parts that were predictable, but there were also parts that really surprised me. I would recommend this book to anyone who's a fan of urban fantasy and looking for an easy, quick read.


Rating: 3 out of 5 stars!
