Some love affairs last a lifetime…others never end.
Fifty years into the future, if you’re one of the damned, you don’t run for your life,
you run to save your soul. Jocelyn Miller is wanted for crimes she committed before she was born. Homeless, blind and out in the elements on one of the coldest nights of the year, her desperation results in a bad decision. When Jocelyn and her brother Nate rob a convenience store, Jocelyn comes face to face with her worst nightmare and greatest love, a reaper named Gabriel.
Gabriel Solaris is an Enforcer, a genetically enhanced psychic often referred to as a reaper for his ability to take souls, and he’s charged with collecting Jocelyn’s. When he finds Jocelyn outside the store, he’s sure she’s up to something illegal. Proving it isn’t necessary. He holds a warrant and it’s all he needs. But the closer Gabriel gets to Jocelyn, the more he begins to question his duty and why he believes her claims of innocence.
When Jocelyn tells him she loved him once, Gabriel loses control and kisses her. Instead of taking her soul, he gives her a week to prove innocence in her past-life crimes, something he has no authority to grant.
What happens when all the criminals have been caught? Well, you start arresting people for the things they did in their past lives. That is the premise in D.L. Jackson’s extraordinarily unique love story. I have to say I was completely fascinated from the first moment of the prologue. I knew I was reading something I’d never even imagined reading before.
D.L. Jackson does a wonderful job of world building so the reader feels absolutely secure that they are living in her vision and they know exactly what is going on. To me, the love story was just as important as the Science Fiction elements, and it functioned as a completely legitimate love story all on its own.
I loved Gabriel. He’s a strong, feisty, Alpha hero who made my heart flutter.
I really enjoyed this book and I’m hoping for more from this clearly multi-talented author.
