Reaper- Rachel Vincent

Hey guys, check it out!  This Book is FREE!  For serious!
However, you can only get it as a e-book.  Since I don't like reading on the computer screens for too long, I borrowed a Nook to read this.  It's not long, but it is good, as Rachel Vincent's books like, ALWAYS are.
This one is not about Kaylee. This one is about Tod, Nash's dead brother who keeps popping up in Nash and Kaylee's personaly lives and their shenanigens with the Netherworld.
A prequel to Soul Screamers, Reaper tells the story of Tod and Nash as delinquent banshee brothers.  There's a nice twist- instead of hearing Nash complain about Tod being annoying, it's the other way around!
Now . . . I'm not a big fan of Nash.  But Tod I think is smarter than Nash (like that's difficult).  He's also got this hidden side that you'll only know about if you read it, which you should, because it's FREE.
There's a lot of cool stuff in this one.  You get to meet Levi, Tod's reaper boss, you catch a glimpse of Tod's humanity before his, erm, undeadity? Reaperness? I'm not sure there's a real word here . . .
This book also portends to the future.  Apparently there is something that happens to Reapers that we don't hear about from Kaylee (because she doesn't know, of course). And at least as far as My Soul to Keep, it doesn't seem to have happened.  In fact, it seems to not be happening at all thus far, but we shall have to wait and see in the upcoming My Soul to Steal to see if it will start, or if maybe there's something about Tod that's just a bit different.
Oh, and this book is really short. Like 50 pages short.  Technically, a 'novella.'
So, to put it simply, you should read this book because:
1. It's FREE
2. It's short
3. It's good.

Honestly, I can't think of three better reasons to read a book.
