***My Personal Review of My Sister's Reaper***

I thought this book was very intriguing and something you don't read everyday.  It took the paranormal idea to a different level.  Zadie loves her sister Mara who is in a coma, and Zadie knows that something about her sisters coma and the events leading up to it were not right but can't tell anyone.  And on top of that Zadie also realizes that something in HER is not right and even goes so far as to believe she is not human.  When she finally figures out what is happening it leads her to meeting the "reaper" who was supposed to take her sisters life (called the Reaper's Rite) in which Zadie intervened and stopped.  So now Zadie has to make a very difficult decision - she either has to take on the reaper and defeat him to save them both or allow the reaper to take Mara as fate intended.  Highly emotional read, you can really feel how much Zadie truly loves her sister and how she would do anything for her even knowing that Mara is somehow different after the coma.

I really feel for Zadie's character as she struggles through life and it is pretty easy to see that Mara is the more popular sister and the kids are always making comments to Zadie, so bullying is definitely a theme that runs through the novel.  But Zadie also faces normal teenage problems like having crushes and finding herself.  The plot was tense and fast-paced, keeping me on the edge of my seat while reading it!  I am now excited to read the second book "Tethered" :)

***My Personal Review of My Tethered Soul***

This book is definitely darker and much more sinister than the first book.  I really liked it because I LOVE dark and sinister though!  Now that Zadie knows she is not the normal teenager, she has her mentor but there are dark forces at work making her do terrible things.  Can Zadie overcome these forces and do the right thing?  And now on top of everything else, she also must decide whether to fight the reaper again for her own life or surrender.

Again, loved the character of Zadie - it is very easy for her to be made to do bad things but she has to fight it and redeem herself, figuring out who she REALLY is in the process.  The characters are always so real and you can relate to them and their situations even if they are living in a "magical" world of sorts.  Chase and Lilura are great teachers, but can they save Zadie from herself?  Once again Dreyer has led the reader on a great chase through a fast-paced whirlwind of action and leaving the reader to wonder what will happen at the end?  Of course I rooted wholeheartedly for Zadie to win, but you will have to read the book to find out!  All I can say is that there is room for more books in this series :)  Absolutely enjoyed both of these books and really cannot wait to see if there is a third coming out soon!
