4 Reaper Stars!
4th installment in The Reapers Novel is the story of Fintan and Catriona. While these can be read as a standalone, I wouldn't suggest it. Each character is continued on to the next book. Each installment are about one of the Reapers finding their mate while in the middle of fighting a war with a spurned Reaper.
Reapers work for Death who is named Elith. Fae are not allowed to know about the existence of Reapers so when Bran told his mate, a Fae, that he was a Reaper Elith killed her, hence the start of the war.
Bran wants revenge on Elith. He is amassing enough power to attempt to take over and become the new leader of the Reapers, but first he must eliminate Elith. Catriona, a hafling, has become a pawn for Bran to get to Elith, but the Reapers do not know why or how Catriona can be used. Fintan is determined to find out. What he wasn't expecting was to fall for Catriona. He was once the most powerful assissin for the Dark Fae. He has always been able to stifle his emotions to do what needs to be done, until Cat.
I have not read the first two books in the series so I don't know if it's revealed why there is the rule that Fae can not know of the existence of Reapers. I wonder if Elith regrets this rule since it did start the war that has caused a lot of casualties. I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes and how it will change the way the Reapers are ruled.
