This is the first book I have read by Miranda Stork and I was highly impressed by the descriptive writing and creative storyline. She is an amazing paranormal author. Reaper’s Deliverance is well written and flows beautifully.

I am huge paranormal fan and I love how this book differs from other books about reapers. She puts a different twist to the reapers in her story. This book DOES NOT take you on an emotional coaster & DOES NOT have hot sex scenes, but this story DOES NOT need either one

Reaper’s Deliverance

Following orders has never been easy for Ryder and now because of it he has created a situation that has caused an innocent to be taken. Ryder has to figure out how to go into the dark world and get the innocents soul back before it is to late. Once again with her magic in writing Miranda Stork made it impossible for me

Little Thomas so sick. No one has any idea how to cure him. His mom, Elizabeth, always there, waiting for her little boy to wake up. Stuck in the hospital walls with a child who is sick and only doctors and nurses to talk to. All they can/will talk about is the sick little boy and give her looks of pity. Then one day Ryder strolls in and gives this poor mom some peace. Rough and tumble Ryder doesn't know what to do when Elizabeth strikes up a conversation with him. When a rough biker meets a ...more

Ryder clearly doesn’t always make the best choices in life; soon we are treated to the opportunity to find out whether or not this pattern keeps up in death. Action is pretty constant from the beginning as we are given a glimpse into both his life and after-life. Reaper’s Deliverance provides an interesting and new perspective into what happens when we die while remaining comedic thanks to witty characters and fun pop-culture references.

This book is like nothing I’ve read before and managed to i

First off I loved this book so much! Ryder dies in a crash and has to make a choice. Should he be reborn and have to deal with the consequences of his actions? Or become the reaper? Miranda makes all of the characters in this story really come to life! You can't help but fall for Ryder and grieve with Elizabeth. I was hooked from the first chapter, and my attention never strayed. The plot is smooth and cohesive. I highly recommend this book.

This book was just beautifully thought out! Ryder is such a relatable character that can really sweep you off your feet. :) And the rest of the group are too funny! Maranda did a fantastic job with this series start. If you're a person of sarcasm and heartfelt moments, please buy this book<3

I was given this book as a gift from the author. What a fantastic read!!! Miranda sucks you in from the first paragraph and keeps you going until the very last paragraph!!!! Ryder is a wonderful character and his character evolves throughout the book. The other characters are also great and you can see how Miranda is setting up for the series. Can't wait until the series continues!!!! Another hit for Miranda...keep 'em coming!!!!

All in all: it was packed with some heavy feelings and bad guys, but it slowly grew on me and I love, love, LOVED it!

The book starts off with a bang, or rather a motorcycle accident caused by the main characters drinking and running from the cops. The introduction to Ryder is all but kind... he's a guy with no morals, or should I say: not any normal morals everybody else has. In short: he's a total douchebag.
But, as every good story (and trust me, this is a good story!) it doesn't end there even

Here I was thinking I was hooked on Miranda Stork's Scarlet Rain series. I still am but I am even more hooked on her Grim Alliance Series! I was literally hooked from the first paragraph. I was fascinated from the beginning in Ryder and his life choices. When he dies and is given the choice to either be reborn into a hard life that is a consequence for his life of sin or become a Grim Reaper for one hundred years as repayment I literally could not put the book down. Well, I did but only after ...more

Ryder was a biker, addicted to action, alcohol, and not very concerned with others. When he died in a horrific motorcycle accident, he was given a choice; go on to his next life which would probably be worse than what he left, or become a Reaper. He somewhat reluctantly decides that being a Reaper would be the better choice; a decision that is validated when he meets Elizabeth, a single mother whose son, Thomas, has a terminal illness.
When Thomas’ soul is taken by evil forces who want him for hi

Review from website Escapology Reviews

This one had me from the first page. Ryder is not a good man. He is a biker who has seen his fair share of trouble. We meet Ryder just as he dies which is where he sees what the deeds of his life have earned him. He is given the choice to move on to somewhere worse or become a reaper. He chooses the latter.

Things seem to be going as well as expected in this new position, that is until he is called to reap a young boy named Thomas and mee

Review at the Book Nympho:

I went into Reaper’s Deliverance thinking it was a paranormal version of a motorcycle club romance or something. Throughout reading, I kept waiting for my emotions to fire and to care about something. It never really happened.

I didn’t connect with any characters or feel like I got to know them really. So much of the story was in Ryder’s head, thoughts and feelings, no one else got much time. I couldn’t understand who they were or

Angles protect,demons destroy and the grim reaper collects souls. So how do you become a reaper? You are given a choice by the gatekeepers. Become a reaper for 100 years and repent for your past mistakes or move on to your next life with the cycle continuing. There are rules to being a reaper, don't contact anyone you knew when you were alive, don't talk to humans and protect the souls from the warders. Sounds easy enough, until you are sent to get the soul of a child and the parent can see ...more
What a jam-packed rollercoaster of a story!!! It had thrills, tension, horror, humour and romance.

I wasn't enamoured with our main character to begin with but I'm glad I kept reading. Ryder's journey; both physically and emotionally was well worth it!

I found the writing style easy to read and the story easy to follow. The world building, plot and character development was well paced and believable and I found myself hooked throughout.

excellent book! i like the different take on "heaven and hell" and reapers and what happens to souls when the body dies. there were a few grammatical snags (not language differences.. couple of those, but not a big deal, and definitely not a hindrance to the story), and because the rest of the book is so well-written, they stood out. but all in all, a good and interesting and fun read. i like that story one ends, but it leaves a tie-in for the next book for whenever i want to pick it up.. i'm ...more

Heart stopping

Exciting. It's not everyday you get a second chance at life and chance falling in love. What would you risk and give up to save a life of the ones who mean the world to you? Anything? At any cost? This book will bring you on a journey of one's self discovery and development of self sacrifice. Great read, well written characters and can't wait to read more especially after the last page! Chills to say the least.
Jan 30, 2015 Amy rated it did not like it
I really don't understand how this book has so many good reviews! I found it tedious, unimaginative, and one dimensional. It felt like a story written by a teenager. There was nothing about this book that carried me away to another place, there was nothing in the writing that made me care about any of the characters. Cannot recommend. At all. Ever.
Mar 18, 2015 Angie rated it liked it

I almost stopped reading this a couple of chapters in. It was very hard to follow because of language differences. I still have no idea what an alchopop is. But it had lots of good reviews so I kept on. It turned out to be a really good story. I am glad I stuck with it.

Really well written. Good story. Ryder is a new reaper and when he goes after a soul he finds he can't do it. Talks to a relative and slowly falls for them and when someone else take the soul he and other dealers with the relative goes after them. Nice read a good book for a change.
