Drea's Review:
I received this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

People are dying mysteriously. The detective tasked with solving mysteries of the extra-inexplicable nature has spotted the same woman at every death. Thane is determined to track her down—especially since the voices he thought he’d gotten rid of start again each time he sees her. Reya was just doing her job as a Redeemer until the pesky detective got all up in her face, asking questions. Now he’s in danger and she’s been tasked with protecting him…from her ex. But this isn’t just another task that may balance the darkness in her soul, this could be a game changer for humanity. And Thane could be the key to it all.

This story had an interesting world/lore to it that is heavy on the philosophy. The writing is good and the heroine and hero clashing at the beginning is always something I enjoy. There’s a satisfying happy for now ending. I would have liked a little more focus on the romance and a little less on the stopping-evil-from-taking-over-the-world. But that’s just this romance-mad chick’s opinion. I give this 3.5 stars.

Grab this if you like books about good prevailing over evil.
