{Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway} of Descent by Tara Fuller

Descent by Tara A. Fuller
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

GENRE: Young Adult
THEME: Romance, Paranormal, Angels


He’ll destroy everything and everyone to save her…including himself.

Easton doesn’t believe in love. He believes in death. Darkness. Sin. As a reaper for Hell, it’s all he’s known for more than four hundred years. So when he gets slapped with the job of training the boss’s daughter, an angel that knows nothing but joy, he knows he’s in for a world of trouble.

Though he’s made it clear he wants nothing to do with her outside of work, Gwen will do whatever it takes to get close to the dark and wounded reaper—even taint her angelic image and become a reaper herself. But in all her planning, she forgot to factor in one thing—how far the demons Easton doomed to Hell will go for revenge.

When the dangers of the Hell threaten Gwen, Easton will destroy everything and everyone to save her. But as the darkness closes in, will he be able to save himself?


I loves story with good vs. evil, and was so excited to read Fullers take on good and evil falling in love. Who would of thought that readers would be rooting for a reaper and an angel to find some happiness. I love the dark take on this type of story but it still kept the sweet romance and the aspects of young adult. I haven’t read the first two in the series but I had an easy time stepping into this world without being introduced to the characters beforehand.

The two leads are very much opposites. Easton is a reaper and escorts souls to hell. He doesn’t know happiness and has been dealing with the darkness of hell for over 400 years. He is also not a happy camper, a little rough around the edges. Where Gwen who is sweet and joyful, she brings happiness to others and will do anything for those who she watches over. I loved how different they were, it made it even more interesting to see how they would end up together. So when Gwen and Easton meet at an accident, they are dealt with something Easton wasn’t prepared for. His partner sent the soul of the one Gwen was watching over to hell instead of Heaven. Now Gwen and Easton need to bring that soul back, Gwen is determined to see it done.

I loved that Gwen wasn’t afraid of what Easton does (reaping) she was more interesting to learn more and see what she hasn’t known or understood. Gwen is also the daughter of Easton’s boss, so I knew there was going to be even more challenges for these two. The longer they are with each other Easton and Gwen the more their feelings began to grow. Easton changes so much, he realizes what it is to care for someone and becomes very devoted to Gwen. The romance is a little on the insta love side, which I’m usually not a fan of, but I’ll give this one a pass since I adored the character development.

Overall this was a great paranormal romance for young adults, it had all the romance and sweet moments with the main pair as well as the darker elements of the paranormal world. It was also a quick read as the writing and length made it easily read in one sitting. For those who are new or old to Easton story this is a must read, I cant wait to read the past books to see how Easton was introduced.

About the Author
Tara Fuller writes novels. Some about grim reapers​. Some about witches. All of course are delightfully full of teen angst and kissing. Tara grew up in a one stop light town in Oklahoma where once upon a time she stayed up with a flash light reading RL Stine novels and only dreamed of becoming a writer. She has a slight obsession with music and a shameless addiction for zombie fiction, Mystery Science Theater, and black and white mochas. Tara no longer lives in a one stop light town. Now she lives with her family in a slightly larger town in North  Carolina where they have at least three stoplights.

  1. I love these kinds of books! It's like good girl vs. bad boy or like you said good vs. evil. I haven't read the first two either, but I think I will start at the beginning of the series. Great review!
