Human life has value.
The poor living in the gutter is as valuable as the rich living in a manor.
The scoundrel is no less valuable than the saint.
Because of this, every life a reaper takes must be redeemed.
Raven has lived by this first tenet since she was trained by her father to become a reaper. But since his death, she’s been spending years redeeming the lives she’s taken. By her count, she’s even and it’s time for that life to end. If she settles down and becomes a wife, she might just feel human again. But on the way to the life she thinks she wants, the baron of New Haven asks her to complete a task which she cannot ignore… Just when Raven decides to give up on her life as an assassin, she’s pulled right back in.

Steam punk isn’t exactly my go-to genre but I enjoy it is it is done right and I have loved everything Pauline Creeden has ever written so I knew I wanted to read. How couldn’t I with a cover like that? Raven was everything I adore in a heroine. She was kick butt and the author didn’t mind making her suffer.
Raven is a reaper but she is redeeming herself. She saved a young baron and is now his protector. His name is Darius, I enjoyed watching their relationship unfold as he started to trust her. There is even some sweet romance. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes steam punk, fantasy, or just wants to try something different. You won’t be disappointed.
I received a copy for my honest review, no other compensation was received.

Pauline Creeden is a horse trainer from Virginia, but writing is her therapy. In her fiction, she creates worlds that are both familiar and strange, often pulling the veil between dimensions. She becomes the main character in each of her stories, and because she has ADD, she will get bored if she pretends to be one person for too long.
