Book Review: 1304 - THE HARBINGER by Christine Rains

Title: 1304 - The Harbinger
Series: The 13th Floor, #4
Author: Christine Rains
Format: Ebook Novella
Source: Author
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Meira Harper loves both her jobs: talking about beautiful shoes and fetching souls for Zeus. But the Thunder God threatens the harpy's loyalty to her job when she receives the call to bring the soul of gorgeous Sam Wright. Meira pleads with her boss to let him live. Zeus agrees, but Sam must fight for his life. If Sam can win three challenges, he can keep his soul.

The gods never play fairly, though, so Meira needs to find ways to help Sam with the challenges. She cannot outwardly cross her master, but she refuses to let the man she loves lose his soul. They haven't even had a chance to start a life together.

Sam's soul is on the line. Meira's will be too if she's caught, but that's a risk she's willing to take.


Review: Christine Rain’s 1304 – The Harbinger takes an original twist on the games gods’ play.

The Harbinger blends Greek mythology with the modern day. Meira is a marked harpy, and she’d do anything for shoes and the man she loves. I love how loyal and strong Meira is, and I get her attraction to Sam—a hero worthy of the title, despite his flaws. Rains’ modernized Greek gods adds to this novella, and I love their drama and pettiness and how even they can show great heart.

The romance is sweet and passionate. The reader can feel the connection Sam and Meira have. I found myself holding my breath during some of the ingenious challenges. Rains’ can take even a normal challenge like the labyrinth and make it fresh. The writing style is fast-paced and pulls the reader into the story. And once again, we catch another glimpse of what makes the 13th floor tick.

1304 – The Harbinger by Christine Rains is another great addition to her fantastic 13th Floor series.
