Book Tour Review & Giveaway: Reaper’s Rhythm by Clare Davidson

Reaper’s Rhythm Clare Davidson
(Hidden #1)
Genres: Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Young Adult
Synopsis book 1:

When everyone thinks your sister committed suicide, it’s hard to prove she was murdered. Kim is unable to accept Charley’s sudden death. Crippled by an unnatural amnesia, her questions are met with wall after wall. As she doubts her sanity, she realises her investigation is putting those around her in danger. The only person who seems to know anything is Matthew, an elusive stranger who would rather vanish than talk. Despite his friendly smile, Kim isn’t sure she can trust him. But if she wants to protect her family from further danger, Kim must work with Matthew to discover how Charley died – before it’s too late.



Kim is 16 years old and has lived in the shadow of her popular sister, Charley, for the majority of her life. Their parents have split, divorced, and Kim lives with Charley and her bratty little brother with their mother in a new home. One night, after receiving a mysterious text and going home before Kim, Charley is found by Kim with her wrists slashed in an apparent suicide. Kim suddenly finds herself in a nightmare. She can’t remember finding Charley and she keeps seeing a mysterious dark haired guy everywhere that no one else sees- at her sister’s funereal, school, and on the street. Written off as crazy and seeing a shrink to boot, Kim keeps seeking answers to her sister’s death. When another teen dies, Kim starts to grill the mysterious stranger, Matthew, who might not be human. She is suddenly faced with the reality that magic is real in the world and those close to her can’t be trusted. Kim faces her own demise multiple times, saved by Matthew, and her own good luck. She faces off her with her sister’s killer and the human who brought him into our world, hoping for revenge and peace.

This was a well crafted young adult novel. It was extremely hard for me to put down the book and I enjoyed the cut off, quick style of the writing. The author doesn’t skimp on vast descriptions, but gets down to the nitty-gritty point. I look forward to continuing Kim’s story in book #2. The magic and magical entities presented in this book defy the young adult genre filled with way too many vampires.

Synopsis book 2:
When you know magic is real, complacency is not an option.

It’s a new school year and ten months since Kim’s sister died. She wants to forget about magic, rebuild her life and start fresh. But it’s not easy when she has to lie to everyone: her family, best friend, Sophie, and secretive new guy, AJ.

But when Sophie’s grandmother falls ill, Kim can’t help but notice the parallels to Charley’s death. Convinced she’s the only one who can help, Kim sets out to discover what’s really wrong with Sophie’s grandmother.
