Reap by Christina Channelle Cover Reveal, Giveaway & Review

Foreign, or rather unfamiliar, would be the word I would use to describe how I felt.


Faintly, I could hear the glimmer of voices surrounding me in this dark haze, caressing my ears like skin against silk. I felt like I was in a cocoon of sorts, protectively enveloped, quietly drifting in some far-off place. I wanted to stay that way forever.

But we all know that what you want never really seems to happen in the real world.


Something’s not right in Mia’s head.

The first thing is that her name isn’t Mia. In fact, she has no clue what her name is—who she is. All that she knows is that she’s not like the ones who found her: Dante with his kind blue eyes, Amy with her child-like demeanor, James with his questioning gaze... And Briggs.

The one she cannot decipher no matter how hard she tries.

As Mia tries to fit in with these people, a strange occurrence is amidst outside. And as she finally remembers who she is …

Well, let’s just say that things get a little more complicated.


Do you know how it feels to open your eyes, and find a room full of strangers staring at you? Not moved to speak, only conversing with a simple nod or shake of your head. When you don't know how you came to be in the strange apartment, and given a name, as no one knows what to call you? The newly named Mia does.

Mia can't seem to speak or write, but at least she has a warm bed and a safe place for her to stay. The streets aren't safe for women, after a string of kidnappings and gruesome deaths. Learning to find her feet within the group of an unlikely family, the kind and warm hearted Dante, the effervescent and infectious Amy, James who is intelligent yet sarcastic, but the most cautious is Briggs. Snide, snappy and secretive, but what is it about him that seems so foreign, yet familiar to Mia. 

What if she never remembers?

When Mia starts losing hope, a restless night, dreaming...
She remembers, she remembers everything.
She remembers the broken life, her best friend that would do anything for her, the love, the hatred. 

She remembers him.

Reap kept me guessing from start to finish, and I had no idea where the story was heading. I couldn't help but constantly wonder who Mia was and why she had no recollection. The book is told in three parts, Forgetting, Remembering and Knowing. It's a beautiful blend of emotion, mystery and anxiety, not knowing where the story is heading.

Mia is a likeable character, and sets the pace for Reap, the story only moving forward due to how much Mia can remember.
