Theo’s entering a world she doesn’t understand nor believes she’s what they call a changeling. All she wants is to be left alone in her seclusion. Wow, what a flippin’ amazing book! Never in my life have I read a book like this. The world-building is complex yet imaginative. The heroine, Theo, is a woman after my own heart. The multitude men trying to protect/woo her is impressive. The plot reads like one of my fave tv shows. I couldn’t put it down and neither will you.

Let’s start with the world-building. This author’s world-building skills are masterful, intricate, and full of imagination. She creates a world steeped in classic fantasy mythology and spins it on its head to create something new and exciting. It’s believable and I personally was transfixed while reading. I don’t want to give out spoilers, just know that it’ll blow your mind.

The characters are wonderful and written with a realism I found refreshing. I connected with Theo right away. Her inner thoughts are hilarious and relatable. She speaks her own mind, and her reactions are inline with mine. There are several other characters I enjoyed. Each character has its own voice and backstory.

The action is quite intricate and described really well. The pacing is perfect, and I found myself reading late into the night.

If you’re looking for an original urban fantasy you can’t put down, start reading Grave-Reaping Hermit. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a sequel.

I thought this book sounded right where I love my books to be, urban fantasy, and I eagerly started it. First off, I love that Theo is not your average female main character. She doesn’t have a perfect figure, and she is mostly a hermit. Although, to be honest, she mentions that she is not perfect quite a few times, and that became a tad annoying. Also, most of the book took place in her cabin, and that also was a little distracting, but these two things weren’t a deal breaker. Add in some interesting characters and an intriguing plot, and this was a very good read. I’m looking forward to the next one. Recommend. I was provided a complimentary copy which I voluntarily reviewed.

A big thank you to NetGalley and Wild Rose Press for the eARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. I believe that this is the start of a new series. I found it interesting. I really liked Theo. I did find the ending a bit odd. Overall a good read. 3.5 stars

Grave-Reaping Hermit is perfect for fans of fae tales like ACOTAR. The storytelling is wonderful with both darkness and humour weaved into a great cast of characters. Once I started reading, I was glued to the page. I loved Theo with her insecurities that were counter-balanced well with her bravery. I also enjoyed the paranormal creatures encircling her, although a few of them people may love to hate. All in all, I highly recommend this book and I'm hoping for a sequel.

Fae, vampires, shifters, and cake! A lot of potential but fizzles to an awkward and unsatisfying end that just sort of unravels and we aren't sure what happened or why - abusive turn that made no point and that could have gone differently.
