Review: The Basilisk's Creed Omnibus by Eme Strife

Immerse yourself in the first omnibus of Eme Strife's addictive, sexy, enchanting, and surreal New Adult series. Each page will leave you even more enthralled than the last, on the edge of your seat, and vigorously chomping at the bit for more. 

NOTE: This is NOT like anything you've ever read before. Proceed knowing you have been told. 


Moving to San Francisco was a decision twenty-three year old Elisheva Tilton thought would change her hard life in Little Rock, Arkansas, for the better. Yet, Eli still finds herself living in shambles and being constantly stressed out just to make ends meet in the Big Bad Bay. 

And the stress only piles on when the most unusual of things begin to happen around her—including the mysterious disappearance of the Atlantic Ocean—and even more so when she strangely meets the unlikely individual who would irrevocably change her life forever; a gorgeous, unbelievably sexy, and sophisticated high-ranking soul reaper. 

Rated 17+ 
This series contains graphic sexual content, violence, and strong language. Because of its explicit nature, it is intended for mature audiences only. Reader discretion is advised.

Overall Rating:  3 Rockin’ ★★★

This is the combined volumes one, two and three in Eme Strife’s series, The Basilisk’s Creed.  It all started with a dream, an out-of-body dream that seemed so real.  It is a lucid dream that let the dreamer interact within the dreamscape.  That’s where Eli meets her dark reaper for the first time and our story starts.

Matt is a Dark Reaper and a Commander within its force.  He is a soul reaper sent to collect souls at their demise.  When he is summons to a meeting about a Shift that threatens to destroy his people, he is unable to totally focus on the job at hand.  He cannot get Eli out of his mind even when the Atlantic Ocean disappears.  Matthiel’s job is to find out what is causing the Shift and handle the problem.   

Eli is pulled into another dimension while dreaming.  She is so tired of trying to make it on her own.  When she moved to California it was to improve her life.  But Eli finds herself still struggling to make it.  Things begin to happen around her that makes no sense.  The dreams and her meeting with tall, dark and handsome is only one of those things. 

Will Matt figure out why the Shift is occurring?  Is love possible between a reaper and a human?  Find out what happens next by reading this book.
