The balance of life and death must be protected at all costs.
Nivian had never failed to reap a marked soul. That is, until she meets Kain Evers, a Hunter and the only being on earth with the power to destroy her.
When Reapers start to go missing, the Balance is thrown into turmoil, forcing Nivian and Kain to trust each other as they search for answers. Which is no easy task as they fight the feelings growing between them.
As mortal enemies, they were never meant to work together, now they're forced to protect each other if they want any hope of righting the Balance before all is lost.
Unfortunately, to succeed, one of them must die.
Intense, gripping and romantic, readers of Maggie Stiefvater and Bella Forrest will love The Reapers. See why readers are calling it "A gripping tale!"
Niavian is a fairly young reaper considering how long reapers can live for. Her character seems slightly naive and sheltered at first. Then through a series of events Niavian gains more knowledge and grows considerably. With the growth of her character I found my opinion of her changed and I ended up liking Niavian more.
Kain’s character is strong, caring and kind of funny. He’s very amiable.
I liked how the relationship between the two develops, changing from mortal enemies to allies.
They make a great team.
Their’s is a tale of mystery and hidden secrets. Where friendships are questioned and figuring out who to trust is crucial.
It’s original and quite different from other reaper books I’ve read. I especially thought the connection between reapers and their pocket watches was interesting.
One of the things that kept me from giving this a higher rating was that the beginning moved kind of slow for me and it took awhile for me to get into it. Otherwise, I thought it was a pretty good story and look forward to starting the next book.
