Tod Hudson was a typical teenager. He liked girls, sports, food and tolerated his younger brother, Nash. In fact, he had his whole life in front of him--and due to his bean sidhe heritage, it was going to be a very long life indeed. And then the car accident occurred. 

Suddenly Tod's future wasn't so sure, and he had to make a choice. Life... Death... or something Between....

An eBook exclusive Soul Screamers series novella.
(summary taken from Goodreads)


Is it possible to express in words how much I loved this novella? Rachel Vincent's Soul Screamers series is one of my favourites of all time, and this little gift that Rachel wrote for her fans (which is available for download free here) honestly takes the top spot of all her books!

The quick wit and humor present in the printed novels of this series are most definitely a big part of this novella, and that this is written in Tod's perspective (my favourite reaper and character of all time) just makes it that much more hilarious!

This novella delves back to when Tod first becomes a reaper, and even though I may have wondered that a few times before, I never would have guessed that it could be this intense. And sad. I'm not even exaggerating when I say that I cried reading this.

Although I love this book so much, I strongly advise people not to start off this series with this novella. I have several friends who have (and they love it nonetheless), but it's so much more fun to read the other books first because then you know the characters even better.

Brilliantly written and extremely enjoyable, Reaper is an eBook that is essential for all Soul Screamers fans. And for those of you who haven't started this series at all, I recommend wholeheartedly that you do so! You won't regret it! :) 

BUY or BORROW?: Well, considering that it's free in PDF format on Rachel's website here, you should definitely buy it! But I'm not lying when I say that I'd pay the retail price to read this book over again! :)
