When asked to join the Read ‘Em & Weap Blog Hop I was excited. I’ve done blog tours before but never with such a passionate bunch of reaper writers. I encourage everyone to check out the other authors in the hop and enjoy their books too. And don’t forget to join the giveaway. There are some great prizes- including a $100 Amazon Gift Card!
My interest in reapers came about after deciding on a new series that was bubbling around in my head for a while. I didn’t want the usual reaper, so decided on a banshee. Jacqueline, the heroine in The Banshee’s Embrace Trilogy is definitely different than any other kind of reaper. Because of an accident she did not die like she should have; which would have made her a full banshee and capable of helping those who died to cross over. Instead she has banshee powers, yet remains alive and fully human. Because of her power, she is able to reap any soul, whether it is their time, or not. A dangerous combination, and something that could turn her into a powerful weapon in the wrong hands. Toby, a wizard and member of an ancient order of wizards, is tasked with protecting her. An easy enough job he thinks, until passion ignites between the two. With each soul Jacqueline reaps her powers grow until she becomes unstoppable. Eventually Toby is captured and tortured by an ancient and powerful wizard in an attempt to take control of Jacqueline. Angered and out of control, Jacqueline seeks revenge. But will she risk losing everything in order to save the one she loves?
In The Banshee’s Embrace we watch Jacqueline start out as a lost and confused woman, not sure what is happening her her. By the end of the series she is feared by all, and turns out to be one of the most powerful supernatural creatures in existence, capable of reaping any soul, including those of other supernaturals.
