Inside the Book:
Title: Grim Tidings
Author: Caitlin Kittredge
Release Date: April 19, 2016
Publisher: Harper Voyager
After winning her freedom from a reaper and facing off against a fearsome demon boss, Ava is now a masterless hellhound. Her friend, Leo, has found a new life after death: He’s returned as the Grim Reaper—the first in centuries. As both try to adjust to their new circumstances, Ava’s dark past comes back to wreak havoc on her . . . and the entire world.
A breed of monsters as smart as vampires—but who behave like zombies—has been sighted in Kansas. Ava can’t believe these “zompires” are back. She thought she’d kicked their asses for good when she first battled them in a Nazi death camp. Now, they’re spreading their infection across America’s heartland thanks to a nasty piece of business named Cain.
Free at last after being locked up in Hell for millennia, Cain has some scores to settle. To stop him, Ava must form an unholy alliance with some old foes . . . a bargain that will lead her to uncover deeply buried truths about her past—and Leo’s future.
Meet the Author:
Caitlin started writing novels at age 13. Her first was a Star Wars tie-in. Fortunately, she branched out from there and after a few years trying to be a screenwriter, a comic book writer and the author of copious amounts of fanfiction, she tried to write a novel again. Her epic dark fantasy (thankfully) never saw the light of day but while she was struggling with elves and sorcerers she got the idea of writing a story about a werewolf who fought crime.
Two years and many, many drafts later, she pitched Night Life to a bevy of agents and one of them, Rachel Vater, sold the series to St. Martin’s.
Caitlin collects comic books, print books, vintage clothes, and bad habits. She loves tea, loud music, the color black (especially mixed with the color pink) and ghost stories. She can drive a stick shift, play the violin and knows more English curses than American ones.
Caitlin lives in Olympia, WA with two pushy cats.
So I'm a goof and I haven't read the first book, which I will remedy ASAP! But I love this author so i had to just grab the chance to read this one. And I of course loved it! Ava is a hell hound. She and Leo are back together again and somehow are found helping Angels. They need to stop someone called Walking Man who has power and is causing problems.
I loved Ava's character. She's basically an assassin yet one with a heart and a conscience. She's a walking contradiction. Not just that but the fact that she isn't a shape shifter yet can change her shape too lol! And with Leo, he's not just a reaper but THE reaper- like Grim! And neither of them are invincible. They hurt just as much as the normals. I like this little twist. Hell, we open up the book with them being hurt. Like big ouch. Their relationship is unique as well.
I love this author's writing and I absolutely fell in love with the twists and plot. It's unique and that makes it so much more fun!! And you really never know who you can trust in this book. So I will go and read book one and I recommend you do the same and then scoop up this one!! 5 PAWS!!
