“Alistair Cross’s DREAM REAPER is an intriguing tale that pits evil against good and keeps the reader on edge with surprising shifts and changes.”
Dianna Love, New York Times Bestseller

“Dream Reaper sets the bar high for urban fantasy; Alistair Cross brings thrills, chills, and otherworldly delights to every page. I’ve never read a novel like it – it delivers terrifying in-your-face horror even as the romance and humor melt your heart and make you laugh out loud. I came away from this book pumped full of adrenaline and deeply satisfied. An excellent read!”
Tamara Thorne, international bestselling author of Haunted and Candle Bay

“Dream Reaper is as lush and ethereal as it is visceral and unholy. A demonic horde seeks to swallow up the citizens of Prominence made vulnerable by their weaknesses. Those who take a stand against the evil are emotionally damaged as well; particularly a sheriff who battles his personal demons in a bottle. The author had me rooting for each of them in spite of, or maybe because of their flaws. With masterful pacing, Cross brings a small mystery to a raging boil that threatens every soul in Prominence. His exquisite prose drew me into the story as if I were living it. Highly recommended.”
QL Pearce, author of the Scary Stories for Sleep-Overs series, and Spine Chillers: Hair-Raising Tales

Here it is ~ the new cover and title for the book that is soon-to-be formerly known as The Angel Alejandro. This edition focuses on the demonic villain rather than the angelic hero of the story, and the reasons for this are two-fold.


First, due to the amounts of blood, sex, and death in the book, the original cover is somewhat misleading ~ it looks more like a romance than a horror novel, and while there is plenty of romance to be had here, overall, the horror reigns supreme.


The second reason has to do with the man on the cover. That top hatted devilish fellow with the cracked (but handsome) face is Gremory Jones, aka, Mr. Jones, aka, the Dream Reaper, who survives on the power of the things you think you need, the things you long for, the things you dream of … and he’s not finished with you yet.


There’s long been talk of Gremory getting a series of his own and while that’s a ways down the line, that would technically make this book the first in that series ~ and we wanted the packaging to reflect that. I think it does.
As hard as it was to let go of the original cover (it was always my favorite) I love this new one and have to agree that it far better represents the story. If you read it, I think you’ll agree. This new edition with it’s new title and cover art will be available in the coming weeks, just in time for Halloween…
