Review - Reaper


This is the synopsis from Amazon:


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.


My review: 3 stars

Plot: This novella was very confusing for me. I suppose if I had read her other books I might understand more, but the tension in this story wasn't enough to completely satisfy me.

Characters: The few characters that were in the novella seemed to all be overly static, minus the main character. I'm all for static characters, don't get me wrong, but I prefer them to be a little more lovely than these ones were.

Setting: Most of the setting was insignificant, with the exception of the recurring hospital. It goes with Tod's situation, but I can't tell you anymore. You'll just have to read it!

Overall: This novella wasn't bad, it just wasn't great. I feel like it took too long to get into the main part of the novella, and it dragged it out too much. Also there seemed to be a few extra characters that didn't need to be included. I would recommend it, but make sure you understand the series before you read it.

  1. I liked this one, but am waiting for tax returns (yay!) to buy the other ones. Hopefully it explains stuff a little more.
