Dead Reaper Walking is part of one the latest paranormal series by Mina Carter. This one features a reaper tangled with a cop in a small town with a whole lot of bad supernatural activity going on.
I generally enjoy Ms. Carter’s books. Laney, our heroine, is sassy and snarky, but at times her numerous asides slow down the pacing of the book. Troy is a good cop and a likable hero.
As expected from this author, the world is filled with interesting creatures and plenty of imagination. Compared to her PPA series, though, I felt like this story wasn’t quite as well thought out. Something about this book just didn’t feel as tight. I’m not sure if it was the switch between Laney’s voice in first person with her numerous tangents and Troy’s third person POV, or if I just didn’t get as pulled into this story as much. It could be a bit of both. I’ve read enough books to know that some characters click with a given reader more than others.
This was still a pretty good offering, just not my favorite from this author. I give it 3.5 cat kisses.

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?

But is she the answer he’s been looking for to fill the empty spot in his heart, or the most dangerous creature he’s ever met?

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.
