Forget Me Knot

Forget Me Knot - Ruth  Silver I received a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.

Leila has finally come to understand and know more about what being a reaper is and what it is even if she doesn't really like doing it. But she is more ok with it now that she has come to realize that she is not killing people and that she is helping them to pass on to their next life. Although she still has a little problem following all of the rules that a reaper must follow. She is always getting in trouble with the council members.

One of Leila's problems is she can't get over the fact that she isn't allowed to see her sister Mara. Mara is her little sister and Leila has taken care of her for a long time with their mother dying when they both were small children. Leila is always trying to find ways to see her sister without getting herself and her friends in trouble with the council. Leila is a very stubborn girl and has nearly always gotten what she wanted being the daughter of a king.

Mara misses her big sister so very much especially now with the death of her father. Mara is now going to be the queen of her country. She isn't all that thrilled about becoming the queen and having to take on all the responsibilities that come with being the queen and the leader of so many people. Not counting all of that now she is going to have to marry a man that she did not pick or marry for love. To be the best queen that she can be she must put the lives of her kingdom before her own. So there for the best and only choice she has is to marry a man that she does not love but one that will best benefit the kingdom and save so many lives. Mara doesn't like the idea of being the queen because her sister was older than her and was supposed to be the queen not her.

Leila has made so many new friends since becoming a reaper. All of her new friends has stood right beside her when she needed their help or stood behind her and backed her up to help keep her out of trouble. They have tried to teach her all that they can in a short period of time all the rules of being a reaper. But there are so many rules to follow that it will take Leila many, many, many years to learn. But oh well that is ok because Leila is more than likely not going to follow them anyways if it does not suite her.

I have read almost every book that Ruth has written and I have loved each and every one of them. If you were to ask me which of her books that I liked the best I am not sure if I could answer that question or not because I am not sure myself. They are all out of this world and mind blowing. They will rock you to your core and keep you on the edge of your seat with your finger hanging out there just waiting to flip to the next page. Sometimes your brain and your finger just don't work well together. Your finger will flip the page before your brain is ready for the next page.

Oh man I love all or well almost all of the characters in Forget Me Knot and can't wait to read more of their stories and about their lives. I can't wait to find out what happens with everyone in the next book. What is Leila going to get herself into next? What about Mara as well? I hope Ruth doesn't make us wait to long for the next book.

If you have not read Forget Me Knot then I suggest that you do if you love a good story and you like reading about reapers helping souls to travel on to their next life. Oh and Ruth has thrown in some dark angels as well. But you will probably want to start with the first book in the series Dead Girl Walking you just so you will know what is going and what happen to Leila and how she became to be a reaper of souls.
