Let me preface by saying I love Misty Harvey!
She is without a doubt, a supportive and kind person, and I just love her! She is one of the first people I knew from Twitter, and we have been great friends since. She is also a wonderful author. I read her first book Creatures of the Damned and I LOVED IT! Of course you all know how much I love vamp books. Misty Harvey is a good Author and friend. Hope you enjoy the post – her new book is awesome!
Lots of love, Emily

Review of Soul Reaper
RATING: FIVE STARS
This is a fabulous read from start to finish.
The characters are believable, the story tantalizing the ending wow!!
The ending was truly unexpected. Each area of the book seems to have an end and a new beginning which was a new twist in writing for me. Usually one can anticipate the ending but not this time. Misty Harvey surprised me with her prowess with words and action. This book is so incredibly enjoyable I read it in two days.
I would have read it in one day but had to sleep. Misty Harvey’s SOUL REAPER is ten times her last book CREATURES OF THE DAMNED. I so would recommend this book as a really good read. I think YA/and all others would love this book especially with its twists. I truly cannot say enough great things about this book.
Character Interview with Eva and Jason from Soul Reaper
Welcome, welcome. Thank you so much for joining us here at Gnome City Entertainment. We have a great opportunity to sit down with lead actors Eva, and Jason from the book Soul Reaper. Thank you for joining us Eva and Jason. *interviewer shakes hands with both actors*
Eva: Thank you, it’s a pleasure.
Jason: Not a problem.
So, tell us a little about the characters you play in this book.
Eva: I play a teenage girl that struggles with who she is. She’s just been moved to a new town after the loss of someone important to her. All these things keep happening to her, and she begins to question her own sanity. Upon meeting these group of ‘friends’ my character starts to come to grips with her role in her own life, all the while wondering who she can trust and who she can’t.
That’s interesting, Jason?
Jason: That’s easy enough, I play one of the friends. My character would easily be cannon fodder during this whole thing if he didn’t have one special ability up his sleeve. The entire time they’re faced with all the trials and tribulations he is trying to master this special ability. He is the only true friend to Eva’s character, and stick close by her side, even if they have their disagreements. I don’t want to give too much away, but the way it turns out threw all of us for a loop.
Now I understand this book is a psychological horror.
Eva: Oh yeah.
Jason: I’d more call it more a mind screw.
*Interviewer smiles* was there one particular scene that scared you more than the others?
Eva: Just one, huh? *stops to ponder* that is a difficult question as I’m the lead. I’m constantly thrown into these frightening situations. I can name two that gave me nightmares for days. One would have to be the scene in the hospital bathroom. When they suited up one of the creative board members into that creepy girl costume, and I saw her placed in the scene to grab my leg, it terrified me. Also the scene in the library basement where I’m alone searching for town history. Our animatronics team did phenomenal there too.
Jason: *chuckling* Yeah, I didn’t envy you any of those scenes. They turned out rather well. Mine would have to be when we were run along the cave ceiling. Granted it was all filmed with these robotics running along the floor, and the camera the only thing turned upside down, but we had to hang onto them. It wasn’t the easiest scene to film at all, but they’d covered these robots in fake skin *shivers*. Needless to say, by the time they were finished with them they were a little too real.
One more question before we let you return to your well-earned vacation. If there is one thing you hope people take away from this book, what would it be?
Eva: Always believe in yourself. There will always be nay sayers, and people out there trying to knock you down, but if you believe in yourself you can accomplish anything.
Jason: You would go for that response. *chuckling* I would probably go with, never give up. No matter how rough the road seems keep pushing yourself.
Thank you for joining us over at Gnome City Entertainment. Stay tuned for more interviews by the cast later this month, and please enjoy the small clip from Soul Reaper by Misty Harvey.
*Video production starts the clip as the lights dim*
Eva sucked in air. Her hands gripping the bathroom sink behind her. Even the squeak of the abused hinges on the door reminded her of a horror movie. She tensed farther, until the door opened far enough a little old woman could shimmy out of the space with her large carpenter bag.
“Some of those doors are tricky. Mind yourself, Sweetheart, that you don’t get stuck in one,” the old woman’s voice cracked. She made quick work of washing and drying her hands before leaving.
“Stop being so jumpy, Eva,” she chided herself. Eva turned back to the mirror. The shattered glass distorting the view of herself. She stared at her reflection for a moment, the image of the room behind her grabbed her attention.
Black mold clung to the deteriorated walls. The paint lost under it all. Pieces of exposed cinderblocks showed. The bathroom stalls clung to the walls on one hinge. Metal doors lay on the floor or, skewed on the frame.
Eva stared at the ruin of the bathroom in the fractured mirror. Her eyes scanning over the details. An ashen face looked under one of the doors. The eyes were completely white. Long tresses of wet black hair covered parts of the face. The lips pulled back over yellow jagged teeth. Dirt clung to the skin, almost hiding the broken fingernails.
“Eva.” The voice slurped like it came from a drowned victim. Each breath sounded like water rattling in a chest.
It took Eva a moment to recognize herself in the girl peering under the door. The long arm reached for Eva’s ankle. Each finger was chilled, and she felt it all through her jeans. Bones squeezed her leg, no meat really left to the girl. She whirled around to fight the girl, and get out of there, but came face to face with the original bathroom.
Bio of Author Misty Harvey
I’ve always felt a certain draw to the night, and the creatures that live there. So writing about these beings has always been easy for me. That isn’t to say there isn’t always a certain level of mysticism in each experience. I’ve lived with the characters of my books, heard their tales, experienced their up and downs with them.
Now I share it all with you, my readers. Come join me in a walk in the moonlight. Let us experience a new way of life that occurs after sunset.
