Brea Nicole Bond is a Southern ex-patriot and the author of the young adult fantasy series Flicker Blue, which chronicles the adventures of an average teenage girl from Georgia who finds herself tossed into a torrent of supernatural circumstances. Brea also penned the new adult dark romance Reaper, a modern-day retelling of the Hades and Persephone myth. Currently, she is preparing to publish the eighth installment of Flicker Blue and drafting a contemporary fantasy novel set in New Orleans. Writing has been Brea’s lifelong passion, paralleled only by her love of reading—especially literary and genre fantasy and science fiction. When not absorbed in the written word, she also enjoys camping, crochet, and dancing with wild abandon in the kitchen.
She resides in San Diego, California with her husband, two kooky daughters, and a houseful of pets named after book characters.

I LOVED this book! The concept was intriguing enough with its originality (I love me some Greek mythology!), but once I started reading, I couldn't stop. (No, really, I finished this in two sittings, and when I wasn't reading, I was thinking about it.) The parallels to the Persephone/Hades myth were cleverly and expertly deployed, and Ms. Bond's particular twist on this somewhat darker myth brought it to life.
Brea Nicole Bond has such talent - not only is her writing beautiful and eloquent and compelling, her characters drew me close and held on so tightly, they didn't let me go till...well, I still think about them, actually. They were just so ALIVE. And Ms. Bond wrote them so vividly, the conflict and tension between the two main characters was palpable. Even the minor characters were well-fleshed out and three-dimensional.
It's a hauntingly beautiful story, and I highly recommend it - especially if you love excellent and unique twists on mythology! This is now one of my favorites.

LOVED THIS BOOK! It's set up for a perfect sequel and griping til the very end. Brea Nicole Bond does an amazing job creating suspense throughout this story. It's been awhile since I've sat down to just read a book and not write, edit, proofread fifty times, etc, and I have to say, Reaper was a thrill, now one of my favorites. If you love to read about dark fantasy mixed with urban reality, read this book.
