Review of The Basilisk’s Creed Omnibus by Eme Strife!!

Moving to San Francisco was a decision twenty-three year old Elisheva Tilton thought would change her hard life in Little Rock, Arkansas, for the better. Yet, Eli still finds herself living in shambles and being constantly stressed out just to make ends meet in the Big Bad Bay.

And the stress only piles on when the most unusual of things begin to happen around her—including the mysterious disappearance of the Atlantic Ocean—and even more so when she strangely meets the unlikely individual who would irrevocably change her life forever; a gorgeous, unbelievably sexy, and sophisticated high-ranking soul reaper.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Hey all, this wonderful author sent us a book to read, and while I read it ages ago, I completely spaced on putting it up here so I decided (i.e. she mailed us again) to put it on here :).  Enjoy 🙂  ~A

~~My Review~~

So I really enjoyed this book. It had its slow parts, and its confusing parts, but overall it was a fast paced, in your face book about two really really star crossed lovers, I mean like REALLY star crossed, not Romeo and Juliet, so much more than that. Different planes of existence.

I am still trying to figure out what part Eli plays in this book, because she is not your typical bar back. I get what part the reapers play, and I really enjoyed the structure that the author created around the reaper world. It is not like shows similar to Dead Like me, there they die, they are in a different plane of existence and they reap souls. These reapers have families, lovers, enemies, bosses, you know what everyone else has, although they get to disappear at will and also just phase out of your clothes, I mean how cool would that be to phase out of your clothing on the way to bed.

The ending sucked, I mean like really sucked because I don’t have the next book and so I was sitting there at 1 am with my mouth wide open trying not to catch flies figuring out what happened, when I could get the next one in the series and how Eme Strife could do this to a loyal reader of the entire book. Yes that is me being egotistical but seriously I read the WHOLE book and she did us this way?

So read the book, gape at the ending, rejoice that while the ending is not only a cliff hanger but more like a drop into space, the ride was worth it, because seriously the ride is totally worth it.
