Release Date: December 31, 2018
Despite a near catastrophe, there’s time for a fateful encounter.
Maureen Reaper, eldest daughter of the revered Grim Reaper, avoided an apocalyptic vortex which threatened humanity, but she still has time for bets. She can’t help it thanks to her curse—the sin of pride. Her latest one brings her face-to-face with an entity no one has seen or heard from for thousands of years.
Jackal, an entity created by the Devil himself, has never known the comprehension of emotions until the day a witch cursed him to feel for everything he has killed. Unable to bear the new burden of a heavy heart, he sleeps with no intention of ever waking until someone finds him.
There’s nothing beautiful in their meeting. Enemies by birth, only more so when Maureen straps a collar around his neck all for a bet. She awakens a beast whose every first—every new glare, new craving, and touch has landed upon her.
Then she learns that the one she sought out in a game controlled by pride could be the very one that helps turn the tide back in the Reapers’ favor.
But that’s the thing…
Pride is a bitch, and Maureen is her.
Julia’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:
Michelle Gross outdid herself with Jackal’s Pride! Don’t get me wrong, I loved Sebastian and Izzy, but it seems like everything got turned up ten notches in this one! Maureen had me curious from the get go, a girl cursed with Pride. I think her portrayal of Pride was dead on, now of course it got annoying at times but Maureen can’t help it. A bet that Pride can’t turn away has her in the sights of one of the most dangerous entities. Jackal. Pestilence. Disease. Death. Maureen’s Pride won’t let her give up with Jackal, and the newly awakened entity won’t give up on his own curse being quiet in the presence of Maureen.
I loved all the new secrets revealed this book and caught myself getting enamoured pretty quickly with Jack and Maureen. The race is on to stop the end of days and this family will die to protect humanity. Through some truly awful bumps we finally get to see the real Maureen, she’s tough and kickass but she can also be soft and loving. Add that in with Jackal learning how to feel and be humanish, THEN add in this kickass family and you have a five star book you’ll be telling all your friends about!
Beckie Bookworm – “This one gets a sure hell yeah from my camp”
Goodreads Review – “I fell into the story and didn’t want to come up. I hope, I pray, that Gross gives us book three soon because I need more NOW.”
BookedMercy – “I was genuinely blow away by this book. It’s hard to find a good paranormal book so I was pleasantly surprised when reading this gem.”
Michelle is from a small town in Eastern Kentucky where opossums try to blend in with the cats on the porch and bears are likely to chase your pets—this is very true, it happened with her sister’s dog. Despite the extra needed protection for your pets, she loves the mountains she calls home. She has a man and twin girls who are the light of her life and the reason she’s slightly crazy.
As a kid, she was that cousin, that friend, that sister and daughter, the talker who could spin a tale and make-believe into any little thing so it was no surprise when she found love in reading, and figured all these characters inside her head needed an outlet. They wanted to be heard, so she wrote.
The voices keep growing faster than she gets the time to write.
The stories are never going to end. That’s perfectly okay, though. We never want to stop an adventure.
