[Archive] LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of For the Birds

Urban Fantasy Author Angela Roquet is a great big weirdo.

She collects Danger Girl comic books, owls, skulls, and random craft supplies. She no longer collects paperback books, because she can’t fit any more in her office, however she does collect ebooks. She has an unhealthy obsession with television shows created by Joss Whedon and fantasizes about him directing television or film versions of her novels. 

Angela’s favorite book/movie is The Wizard of Oz. She likes a little coffee in her cream, and her favorite food is sushi, even though it’s takes her FOREVER to make. Angela is a peace loving, tree hugging hippy who tries to buy organic and local as often as possible. She’s a fan of renewable energy sources, marriage equality, and religious tolerance. As long as whatever you’re doing isn’t hurting anyone, she’s a fan of you, too. Angela lives in Sedalia, Missouri with her husband and son. When she’s not swearing at the keyboard, she enjoys painting, goofing off with her family and friends, and reading books that raise eyebrows.

For the Birds (Lana Harvey, Reapers Inc. #3)
by Angela Roquet


Lana Harvey isn't just any reaper. She's the new captain of the Posy Unit, a specialty group dedicated to harvesting mass quantities of souls from natural disaster sites, battlefields, and the like. The new title didn't come without a price though. Lana made some promises along the way, and now it's time to follow through... even if that means putting herself in the path of the three Fates, a fickle and mighty force to be reckoned with. The Fates run a soul recycling plant in Limbo City, and if Lana isn't careful, they just might recycle her.

Our Review by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:

*eARC received from the author in exchange for an honest review

Another knock out hit by Ms Roquet!

As thrilling as the first two installments, For the Birds had me laughing out loud at least 3 times before page 30, cheering on Lana through every action-packed moment, and wishing for more when the last page was turned.

Our special little reaper just can't stay out of trouble, and her IOU's & secrets just keep stacking up; even though she's managing to garner a few boons along the way as well.

Her inner circle just keeps getting more interesting also, and even though some of her new allies are better classified as frenemies at times, Lana can use all the help she can get - especially when her boss decides to display his more 'grim' side, and she has some heavy hitters out to ruin her every step of the way.

I did miss Gabe (Lana's hot mess of an archangel best friend) in his installment, but if the ending is any indicator, we'll have lots more of him in the next book. :)

LITERAL ADDICTION gives For the Birds a well deserved 5 Skulls, and I would recommend it to ALL of my friends and followers. This series is a steady new favorite, and I can't wait for more!
