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.

Taschima's POV:

"Just FYI, in your case, I think it's okay to fear the reaper."

Reaper was exactly what I needed. In fact, it's what every Tod fan needs! I've always loved Tod in the Soul Screamers series and getting the chance to read on how he became a reaper, and why, is priceless. I would suggest, however, not reading this book until after you read a couple of the Soul Screamers series books because it will reveal a major secret of the series, plus the read will be that much more sweet if you have read the first 3 books in advance.

It is a quick read, but by no means light. It is full of crucial information and character development. In it you get to see what a spoil brat/jerk Nash was(seriously, this guy is a pain in the ass, he is competing with Shane from Morganville Vampires for the #1 spot in my list of jerkwads), and how Tod has always been, well, Tod-ish; a flirt, a charmer, a smart ass (the only ass he cares to know), and a tough loving brother. Tod's one liner's are legendary.

"You date a criminal, and you're eventually going to have to share her with the state" [when talking about Sabine]

Tod isn't exactly a bad boy, but has all the right characteristics to make you swoon...

Overall Reaper was a satisfying 45 pages. I wish it could have had more pages T_T, being inside Tod's head is pretty great. Furthermore Reaper isn't just a pretty filler like many other novellas seem to be, instead it helps to develop a number of characters (Tod, Nash, their Mother, Levi, and heck you even get a glimpse of Kaylee) further (like all novellas rightfully should). Now all I really want to do is pick up my copy of My Soul to Take, again, and read it with a whole new perspective. Sounds like fun ;)
