Reaper 2.5 out of 5
When we first meet Tod, he is a typical teenager, but he comes off as a jerk. Someone that's not that great to his mother and is only out for his own gain. He's kind of an unlikable character. His younger brother Nash is much worse than Tod. He's a lot more unlikable and more of a jerk. He's very irrational, and very much a trouble maker. Tod is supposed to stay at home and watch his brother, but instead, he's with his girlfriend, worrying more about his hormones than protecting his younger brother, even when he's sure he'll make a mistake.
I feel the author pushes us to hate Tod, and then after he saves his brother, we're suddenly supposed to like him more because he made such a large sacrifice for someone that truly didn't deserve it. We meet up with Tod at several different intervals after the tragic accident and after he begins his reaper duties.
The ending was disappointing. We're left wondering what choices he made, and wondering if the balance of all mankind will be thrown off because once again, he made such a terrible choice.
This may be a more interesting read for those of you familiar with the Soul Screamers series, but otherwise this is not such a great read.
