Review – Death’s Dancer

Death's Dancer book cover


Death’s Dancer


Grace Bloods #1


Jasmine Silvera


Urban Fantasy


Isela Vogel has the power to attract the favor of the gods for anyone who can pay her fee but struggles to hide the degenerative hip condition that will end her career. Then she’s offered a job that will set her and her family up for life. Though her prospective patron is a formidable necromancer with a heated and infuriating gaze, she can hardly refuse the payday.
The Allegiance of Necromancers is powerful but not omnipotent, and when someone starts murdering his kind, Azrael must enlist a human in order to track down the killer. But why does she have to be so frustratingly stubborn–and intriguing? Azrael can make the dead walk, but he can’t make the very much alive Isela toe any line.
Isela is thrown into a world of supernatural creatures–demons after dark, witches in the shadows, shifters running wild in city parks–where the grace of gods can truly infuse the blood of the most mortal-seeming dancer. As the danger increases with each thrilling discovery, trusting Azrael may be the only way to survive a conspiracy to destroy the fragile peace of a broken world.
But the greatest threat is their growing attraction. Dancers and necromancers don’t mix for a reason–it turns out there are fates worse than death.


4stars rating

This is the first book I read by this author and I can honestly say it won’t be the last (as in… yep, the second instalment is on my ever-growing TBR list! :D).
While it took about 1/3 of the book to really catch and keep my attention, once it did, it didn’t let go. There is a good depth to the world and all the characters that makes the story come alive. Of course, I always want to know more about whom I’m reading about or the world the author created, but that would just have been overkill for this first instalment.
More than enough info and details and an active imagination that handles the rest, what more do you need?

The book itself:

The book was well written with no (noticeable) errors and yes, there is sex described (if that is important to you).

Final Thoughts:

To be honest, when writing this review I can almost compare this book to, indeed, an actual dance. The ebb and flow, the quiet moments and the heartfelt movements in times of action.
I liked and enjoyed reading it, the story was something different within a genre we all know and love, so yep, I do recommend you check this one out and enjoy!
