Review: The Reapers by Jacinta Maree #MyDemonicGhost

The Reapers by Jacinta Maree
(My Demonic Ghost #2)
Publication date: September 17th 2013
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

The day you die is meant to be the end, but for 18 year old Jordon Hastings, his death was only the beginning.

In a dark and twisted world, lost spirits known as Reapers remain behind after death to help collect the spirits from the realm of the living. A new Reaper, Jordon struggles to accept his fate and lingers in the shadows of his mortal life. But when a demon wolf starts to live through his shadow, hunting his family and friends Jordon has no choice but to leave. As soon as he accepts his new role the truth behind the relationship between Reapers and Angelic Hunters is revealed. His loyalty is tested, making him choose between a corrupted God and a single Banished Spirit.


This book was awesome. Exciting, fast paced and full of twists and turns, I was fully immersed in the world of Reapers, Hunters, Royals, Banished and Hosts.

I loved how this book took place before and during the events of book 1, because it added to the story by clearing up some of the questions I had whilst reading the first book. It also gave me a chance to see a different side of Evan/Lock, and how and why he became a Banished.

It was interesting to see things from a Reapers perspective, because they were kind of made out to be these horrible beings who felt nothing for the Banished and just allowed their Goons to destroy “lives”.

I also loved getting to know certain characters were before they appeared in Lock’s life in Banished Spirits. I felt a little tingle of excitement every time I recognized someone or was able to tie together events. The world in which these spirits dwelled was exciting and at times terrifying, but Jordon and his friends fought for their rights, and it was one thrilling adventure.


Self confessed chocaholic, Jacinta was born and raised in Melbourne Australia with her loving family of five. Even as a child Jacinta had an itch to write. Writing was the one constant hobby she clung to, also trying her hand at piano, flute, tennis, horseback riding and drama.

Jacinta works full time in the family business and spends her afternoons either playing basketball, reading, writing or hanging out with friends. She is always happy to try something new; getting her real estate license, practicing ninjitshu, Zumba and parkour to name a few.

For her future, Jacinta sees herself writing. It is a large part of her identity and something she hopes to continue. Aside from her love of stories she loves Japan and its unique and beautiful culture and history. From their delicious sushi dishes right down to their wooden sandals and kimonos. She is also a huge cat person and loves to snuggle up in front of the fire for a good movie or book. Her favorite genres are paranormal and fantasy but she also loves anything written by thriller writer, Stephen King.
