Life or Death? Not many people would choose death. But what if death chooses you? What if death doesn’t mean the end of your life, but the beginning? For a Death Escort, death is life. Death is your paycheck. Death is your job. And Charming is the best Escort the Grim Reaper has ever had. But when you piss off the Reaper, being the best doesn’t matter. So Charming is assigned a Target who is practically impossible to kill. He knows the Reaper hopes he fails—that he’s counting on it. So Charming vows to prove him wrong. He vows to make the kill. But someone else vows to get in his way. Someone with a big mouth, a sugar habit, and blond hair. Someone who makes his heart start beating again. And so Charming is left holding more than one person’s fate in the palm of his hand. He thought the choice would be easy, that there really wasn’t a question at all. He was wrong. Life or Death?
Cambria Hebert is a latte sipping author of the Heven & Hell series, the Death Escorts series, and the Take It Off series. She loves a caramel latte, hates math and is afraid of chickens (yes, chickens). She went to college for a bachelor’s degree, couldn’t pick a major and ended up with a degree in cosmetology. So rest assured her characters will always have good hair. She currently lives in North Carolina with her husband and children (both human and furry) where she is plotting her next book.
I was so excited to get an ARC of Charmed from Cambria Hebert!! After reading book one, Recalled, I was highly intrigued and loved the world she created about Death Escorts.
This also led me in to wondering if I would enjoy Charmed because after reading Recalled, he was not one of my favorite characters.
BUT...let me tell you, Cambria Hebert completely took me by surprise and brought the WHAM in the pages of Charmed.
So, as I said above, I wasn't too excited about reading about Charming. I mean, what a jerk. What in the world could redeem this guy??
Well, leave it to Cambria to show you that you can't always judge a book by its cover and that there is always more than meets the eye.
In Charmed, we get to see a whole new person. We find out the history of Charming...AND HIS REAL NAME!!
But we also find that love will always conquer all. It's amazing the things that love can do to us. The way we can change to make sure that the one we love is taken care of, that we would do just about anything in the world for them to make sure they are happy.
And who does Charming fall in love with?? Hmmm...should I tell? I really don't want to give anything away....ESPECIALLY if you haven't read book one...
So, I will leave it at that....keep you dangling...letting you know that reading Charmed is really going to change your views on getting to know someone and really looking past barriers.
Cambria Hebert is a phenomenal writer. She creates a unique and alluring world that you immediately fall in to. Full of action and suspense; you are dangling from page to page waiting to see exactly what is going to happen to the characters that you have grown to care about.
If you enjoy reading about the Grim Reaper, the twists that can occur after death, and just an overall interest in paranormal, then make sure you pick up the Death Escorts series...
