Reaper: The Beginning (Artwork by Martine Jardin)

Reaper: The Beginning is the first novel in my Reaper Series of books, following the initial manifestation of Samantha Bennet’s paranormal nature during an attack on her young self. As her black exoskeleton appears for the first time sporting razor sharp claws, one can see that it’s a terrible way for a teenager to find out that she’s different from everyone else. The vengeance she exacts on on her attackers is swift and ruthless and in the aftermath she is left wondering where this strange and lethal “second skin” has come from.

As an adult, Samantha burns the candle at both ends fighting crime: as a vigilante in the dark of night and as a rookie police officer paired up with Phil, an experienced cop who becomes a father figure as well as a dear friend. She finds lust – and possibly love – in the arms of a co-worker, Neal, who brings her to heights of ecstasy she has never before known. Yet as Neal tries to foster a closeness between them, Samantha pulls away and feels more alone than ever before. She knows that her dark secret must never be revealed, not to her lover (who as an officer of the law might be more inclined to attempt to arrest her than to applaud her actions), not to anyone she cares about!

An Eastern mystic is privy to the truth about the origin of Samantha’s power. His revelation is shocking and hard to believe. The biological father Sam never knew was a notorious Fallen Angel, making her a Nephalim, the offspring of her mother’s human womb and Azkaziel’s angelic seed.

With villains both human and supernatural coming out of the woodwork and her lover becoming suspicious of her late-night outings, does Samantha have a snowball’s hope in Hell of surviving what Fate has dealt her?

    On the Reaper Series… LOVE IT! I own all 5… when is #6 comin ? If this is a repost my apologies!

    • amandamholt said,

      Glad you love it! Reaper 6 will be out very soon… I left an initial estimated time of delivery, but sadly, life got in the way of art. (Work, vacation, time with family, etc). I solemnly swear that I will get to work on it. In fact, I don’t have to be at my workplace until 1030pm, so why don’t I work on it a little now??? Thanks, Rob! Watch for it on Smashwords and Amazon!

    • amandamholt said,
