Book Blurb:

Las Vegas socialite and otherworldly avenger Joanna Archer gave up everything when she embraced mortality—abandoning her powers and altering her destiny to save a child . . . and a city. Now her former allies are her enemies—and her enemies have nothing to fear.

Yet still she is bound to a prophecy that condemns her to roam a nightmare landscape that ordinary humans cannot see and dare not enter. And a beast is on her trail—an insane killer blinded by bloodlust, who's determined to rip much more from Joanna than merely her now-fragile life.

Survival is no longer an option in this dark realm where good and evil have blurred into confusing shades of gray—unless she can gather together an army of onetime foes and destroy everything she once believed in.

My Thoughts

First, I am kicking myself because I just found this series. And boy, I am so glad I got this copy for review.

Joanna Archer has had plenty to deal with and that was way before she just became another normal mortal human. But now things have changed and her former crew have turned their backs on her while Joanna’s enemies have sort of turned into some would called allies. Joanna not only has to deal with a psycho killer but also has to endure one of the most anticipated wedding.

The suspense and action alone keeps trying to put Joanna down but she is not going to go down without a fight. Readers and fans alike are going to love reading Cheat The Grave. Key characters are still out to kill Joanna but she has new and surprising allies that help her along the way to survival.

I found this to be one of the best books of 2010. Cheat The Grave not only blew me away but is also the best page turner novel I have read this year.

Each page and chapter kept me in suspense and awe. Not to mention also about how awesome each surprising twists and turns that kept me distracted from watching one of my favorite television Sunday night series finale.

The last page alone is well worth the trip to the bookstore. I cannot wait to read the next book in the Sign of The Zodiac saga. Cheat The Grave is my pick for one of my top ten books to read in 2010. Get your copy today!

I give Cheat The Grave a rating of 4 out 5 Stars.
