“I loved Rachel's novella that introduced us to the Soul Screamers series and this is a book that is conceptually similar, providing some insight into Todd - a character that you really grow to love throughout the series... It really opens your eyes to who Todd is. I wonder if Rachel Vincent...”see full review » see other reviews »
“I enjoyed this quick glimpse at Todd, Nash's reaper/banshee brother from the Soul Screamers series. It fits in well as a precursor to the next book in the series (My Soul to Steal) and gives some really interesting insights that I'm pretty sure will have repercussions later in the series. I'd recommend it for a fun, quick read. ”Kimberly Sams wrote this review Tuesday, April 16, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I am not much of a fan of novella's, but this one was really good and a great little addition to the series so you know what's up with one of the characters. I recommend this novella, but ONLY if you are reading the series. Otherwise, it will leave you wondering. :)”Lettee wrote this review Monday, March 25, 2013.

“My first read of the year, and it was a decent one. Just a short story of Tod -whom I love, love, love- and how he became a reaper. Not a while lot we didn't know, but more details. Really liked the teaser at the end that gives us a little foreshadowing.”Ashley [ <3 ] wrote this review Monday, January 7, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“This is #3.5. I was a little perturbed that it wasn't in order in the book. Only because it messed with my OCD and annoyed the crap out of me. But I ended up still reading it first anyway and I'm glad I did. I gained some back story on not only Tod, but a little more on Sabine and could see why she acted the way she did. I must admit though, it was a little different to see Tod alive and Nash with someone else. But it did help in seeing who they really were. I just wish there had been a different outcome for Tod. But then there would be no story obviously. What I loved the most, was the huge difference in Tod that we see. I'm sure it has everything to do with being a Reaper changing him, but most of the scenes where he was alive were so emotional. It really surprised me to see him that way. I'm glad I read this in actual order, because I saw then what Sabine meant to Nash and was able to connect a little bit to him during Book 4 when I'm sure everyone was still like "OMG Nash how could you do that to Kaylee?!"

“I really enjoyed getting the backstory and a better understanding of Todd. I've always thought he was funny, but it was so nice to see his depth as well. Reaper was super easy to read as are all the other Soul Screamer books. I just really like Rachel Vincent's style of story-telling and can't wait to read the rest of the books in this series.”Tabi wrote this review Thursday, August 30, 2012.

“If you ever watched the television series Dead Like Me you will see a lot of familiar things.
1. There are beings known as reapers who collect souls.
2. They work for some unknown and unclear group.
3. They are provided with information noting time of death and where so they can be there when the person dies.
4. The main reapers in the story are all young. (Male in the story, female in the series).
5. Both reapers die as a result of an accident (car in the story, Mir toilet seat in the series.)
6. They are not supposed to appear to their family. (In the book it works; in the series it doesn't.)
7. There are fairly strict rules to follow.
In the story there are two brothers, the irresponsible Nash and the somewhat irresponsible Tod. In an interesting process Tod ends up a reaper. There's a long of angst in the book and it works both due to the writing, the similarities to the series and the differences to the series. I intend to get more of this series since it's so interesting. ”
“This book did exactly what a short story is supposed to do, it piqued my interest in the Soul Screamers series.”Kim S wrote this review Tuesday, July 31, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
