Piper is feeling a bit overwhelmed. With Seiya and Lyre missing, Ash recovering from near fatal injuries, and the Gaians picking fights with daemons all over the city, a girl can't help but think she might be in over her head. And this time, she's on her own.
Before she even has a chance to investigate the Gaians' new stockpile of mysterious, high-tech weaponry, an old enemy ambushes her: Samael's henchman Raum. He wants Ash's help and won't take "get lost" for an answer. She doesn't know if she can trust Raum, but even more than that, she can't trust herself with Ash. Sooner or later he'll catch up to her, and she fears she won't be able to walk away from him a second time.
Despite her feelings, it will take their combined strength to face a frightening discovery about the Gaians. She and Ash begin to realize that the daemon war is coming to Earth, and they might be the only ones who can stop it-if it's not already too late.

Steel & Stone series is one of my favorite urban dragon series, it is fast-pace, action packing and full of intriguing creatures/characters.

Just when I thought the series couldn’t possibly get better, I was once again surprised by how engaged this book was.  In Reap the Shadows, the story have move forward after Piper left Asher behind thinking she was doing him a favor.  But then the reality hit hard when Piper tried return to her old life.  She realized she didn’t quite belong to her old world anymore.  Piper then slowly begin to understand how much more she was like a demons than other hedemon.  Throughout the book Piper would continued to struggled with her demon, and the bloodthirsty that comes with shading.

I didn’t quite agreed with Piper’s decision of leaving Asher behind, because I thought together they were much stronger, and I really like Asher’s character, not to mention the interactions between Piper and Asher were very fun to read.  So I was somewhat disappointed not having Asher around at first.

The story mainly focused on the destruction on earth, and how the two royal demon family, Ra and Hades were plotting to take control of the earth, by using human as their pawns, when then managed to turned the humans against each other.  When Piper discovered the possibility that demon is behind all the chaos, she knew she will stop at nothing to see it to the end.

I really enjoyed reading Reap the Shadows, we get to see so much of Piper and her demon, her potentials and struggles, and how Piper eventually came with the conclusion that she may be more of daemon than human.

The last part of the book really made me simile, even though I would be very sad when the series end, I can’t wait to read the next and the last book.
