Title: Unveiled (Raven Daughter #1)
Author: A.D. Trosper
Jo’s birthright may be her death sentence.
Being blood-bound to Caius, a powerful and rather irritating demonborn, was never on my bucket list. Of course, neither was being a reaper or learning I’m not fully human.
In fact, there are a lot things going on in my life now that weren’t on that list – like almost having my immortal life cut short or finding out my unusual heritage may get me killed.
As if that wasn’t enough, it seems like everyone around me is either keeping secrets or wants to see me dead. Except Caius, who isn’t what I expected. He’s moody, annoying, dangerous, and hotter than hell. He’s supposed to be my enemy. Yet, he saved my life and told me the truth when no one else would. And now…I think I feel more for him than I should.
I really loved this book, it had all the elements of a fantastic YA fantasy. Jo and Victoria are sisters who couldn’t be more different. When their mother dies, and they are forced to face the truth of their origins, they are brought into a world they never would’ve guessed existed. Within the world, they each have their own roles, one as a Reaper and one as a Guardian.
Jo was my favorite character. She was feisty and strong. She did not back down even when other characters did.
The thing that bothered me about this book though was the two six month jumps within the story. The first is when Jo is first brought into the Reaper world and the second is just after she begins reaping. I feel as if a lot of the story is lost for these jumps. These time periods would’ve shown some real character development and would’ve helped the reader to divulge into this book’s world more thoroughly. With the time skip, I felt as if there was a bit of an info dump to explain it all, and it’s a shame because the book has so much going for it.
