The day you die is meant to be the end, but for 18 year old Jordon Hastings, his death was only the beginning.
In a dark and twisted world, lost spirits known as Reapers remain behind after death to help collect the spirits from the realm of the living. A new Reaper, Jordon struggles to accept his fate and lingers in the shadows of his mortal life. But when a demon wolf starts to live through his shadow, hunting his family and friends Jordon has no choice but to leave. As soon as he accepts his new role the truth behind the relationship between Reapers and Angelic Hunters is revealed. His loyalty is tested, making him choose between a corrupted God and a single Banished Spirit.
3.5 out of 5 starsAlthough this is the second installment of the My Demonic Ghost series, The Reapers can be read as a stand-alone novel without any problem.
This story is told from the point of view of newbie Reaper Jordan, Evan’s step-brother, who went missing in the previous book. This book was sort of like a behind the scenes telling of what was going on when we were reading about Evan in the first book. It was very insightful and I had a better understanding of what was going on during My Demonic Ghost. I really liked Jordan and his need to protect and look after his little brother even after death. I must say that I enjoyed The Reapers more just from the stand point that it had more action and definitely had some new characters that I fell in love with…especially Jordon’s Goon, Raix. There was a scene that had me bawling at one point, but the outcome had me smiling again. And it must be said that with the final chapter, you are left with an ‘Oh Crap’ feeling as it leaves the reader with a hint of what the next installment will be about. Things are about to get a little messy I believe!
With horrifying vivid descriptions of pure evil, you can’t help but shiver with fright as you read this terrifying novel. There were a ton of twists and turns with this one that kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. This suspenseful story was well-written and the plot flowed effortlessly. Ms. Maree has outdone herself with The Reapers, and I can’t wait for the next installment of this engrossing and entertaining series.
