The Reaper is a collection of short stories meant to tickle your senses. Whether it’s to avenge a betrayal, confront cruelty, punish hypocrisy, or revenge for murder, these gritty stories have one thing in common, and that is the dark, creepy feel of a thriller.
Jade Royal has a unique writing style that is straightforward and leaves a bit of a dirty taste in your mouth. She writes about straight-up ugly things and the payback for those sins. I had to take a break. I couldn’t read this short compendium all the way through in one sitting.
One of the things I could appreciate is the sense of doom she infuses in all her work. She never promised any silver linings in any of these stories, and you knew upfront what you were reading. I liked that.
I recommend this to anyone who enjoys horror-thriller.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary advance copy of this book.
