For the Birds Blog Tour Review

Lana Harvey, Reapers Inc., Book 1

Available exclusively at Amazon:  Only $0.99 for Kindle |  Paperback

The Inferno has Evolved… Lana Harvey is a reaper, and a lousy one at that. She resides in Limbo City, the modern capital of the collective afterlives, where she likes to stick it to the man (the legendary Grim Reaper himself) by harvesting the bare minimum of souls required of her. She’d much rather be hanging out with Gabriel, her favorite archangel, at Purgatory Lounge. But when a shocking promotion falls in her lap, Lana learns something that could unravel the very fabric of Eternity. If the job isn’t completed, there could be some real hell to pay.

Lana Harvey, Reapers Inc., Book 2

Available exclusively at Amazon:  KindlePaperback

The promise of peace in Limbo City is threatened once again, but this time the terrorists have a more specific target in mind: Lana Harvey. The up and coming reaper thought passing her classes at the Reaper Academy was going to be her biggest challenge, but when a rebel demon sends her apartment up in flames, she realizes that her victories from the previous year haven’t gone so unnoticed after all… To make matters worse, the Afterlife Council has taken notice of Lana too. The Egyptian god Horus is blackmailing her into joining the Posy Unit so she can do an illegal side job for him, and Cindy Morningstar, Lucifer’s daughter, insists that she take a two week training course with the devilishly tempting Beelzebub, much to her angelic boyfriend’s chagrin.

After I finished reading these books, I thought how am I going to write the reviews without giving anything away in book one by reviewing book two. So here goes without giving anything away.

I thought the series was similar to Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse. The craziness of the characters were a lot of fun. There are a lot of characters, but it is still easy to keep track of the main characters and who you need to know. They are quirky and very well developed. Their interactions with one another while at work and away from work are very entertaining.

Gabriel is quite the best friend of Lana as well. I enjoyed their relationship and their antics. Lana is very typical in that she knows she's not the best at what she does and is very surprised as she is involved in very important things. Her not so quite on relationship with roommate and co-worker make for interesting antics as well.

In book two, the story continues and new characters are also introduced. I like this as it adds freshness to the story and interactions and relationships continue to grow. The story keeps you reading and I am very excited to read book three. I didn't have time to read it before this post. I definitely recommend this series to readers of the Sookie Stackhouse series, but also to readers who like humorous paranormal reads.

Lana Harvey, Reapers Inc., Book 3

 Available exclusively at Amazon:  KindlePaperback

Lana Harvey isn't just any reaper. She's the new captain of the Posy Unit, a specialty group dedicated to harvesting mass quantities of souls from natural disaster sites, battlefields, and the like. The new title didn't come without a price though. Lana made some promises along the way, and now it's time to follow through... even if that means putting herself in the path of the three Fates, a fickle and mighty force to be reckoned with. The Fates run a soul recycling plant in Limbo City, and if Lana isn't careful, they just might recycle her.

Urban Fantasy Author Angela Roquet is a great big weirdo.
She collects Danger Girl comic books, owls, skulls, and random craft supplies. She no longer collects paperback books, because she can’t fit any more in her office, however she does collect ebooks. She has an unhealthy obsession with television shows created by Joss Whedon and fantasizes about him directing television or film versions of her novels. Angela’s favorite book/movie is The Wizard of Oz. She likes a little coffee in her cream, and her favorite food is sushi, even though it’s takes her FOREVER to make. Angela is a peace loving, tree hugging hippy who tries to buy organic and local as often as possible. She’s a fan of renewable energy sources, marriage equality, and religious tolerance. As long as whatever you’re doing isn’t hurting anyone, she’s a fan of you, too. Angela lives in Sedalia, Missouri with her husband and son. When she’s not swearing at the keyboard, she enjoys painting, goofing off with her family and friends, and reading books that raise eyebrows.
