Publisher's Summary

When her father died, Lucy Mae Estmond inherited the family business. She has known all of her life that she will be in line to watch over the souls of the recently passed, keeping them safe from the Reapers.

The soul eating Reapers have been a plague upon the Earth, stealing souls and leaving the Keepers as the only thing that stands between heaven and hell. The factions despise each other and have warred for generations.

Then Lucy discovers an ancient legend predicting the arrival of the Chosen One, destined to bring forth an end to the Reapers. The surprises continue when she realizes she is that person. For Lucy, being the Chosen One doesn't change much. Fighting Reapers is just another day in the life of a Keeper.

When she meets Jack Walker, they both realize they have an insane, mutual attraction. Too bad that he's been sent to prevent the prophecy from coming true. His only mission: to kill the Chosen One.

A Morbidly Fun and Lively Listen

This is definitely a milk and cookie book. The tension between Lucy and Jack, along with their warring worlds, creates a sizzling mix of emotions to explore. The narrator captures each personality and really brings the world and the characters to life; so much so, that I listened to this book on a road-trip and always hated to stop for gas because I wanted to hear the next chapter. It is geared towards young adults, but can also keep the attention of an older audience. If you are looking for some light, romantic (at times exotic) entertainment, in a world with some magical twists, give this book a listen.

Not for me.

I found the noises to cover the language used in this book to be a complete annoyance, they were so irritating I just stopped listening to the story.

Great Storyline

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The genre isn't my preference so I found I was eager for the conclusion.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The most interesting were the characters. Malone Wright had a way of capturing my attention with each character and overall fast pace of the plot.

I was least interested in the particular descriptions of clothing and scenery and feel it could be much improved by taking out the multiple occurrences of the "f word" and detailed mentions of what each character wore.

Many aspects of the book foreshadowed the next one and have me curious about their importance in the next installment.

What does Kelsey Osborne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Osborne was fantastic with her reading and expressions throughout this. Even with the amount of sex scenes and passion throughout she kept a great pace which kept my attention.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

The genre isn't my typical favourite so I think I would pass on the movie but would recommend it for fans of the genre.

Any additional comments?

The amount of vulgarity was really unexpected and had me hesitate on listening to the entire book. Although I'm not against it if the character feels the need to say it occasionally I found it was too common and took away from the overall story.

Sorry to have wasted my money.

I really wanted to like this book but 2 things got in the way. 1) Narrator couldn't voice men's voices at all so you had to pay attention when she switched. 2) My biggest complaint was that Jack was such a slut. I've read books where the guy would have a sluty past but grew out of it by the time he meets his love interest. Nooooo...not this guy. He had sex with 2 women and went back to one of them after he met Lucy!! And this went up to chapter 11.....And to make it more disgusting, the author went into such freakin detail with them but when it came time for him and Lucy there was hardly a damn, detail of their experience! Seriously!! What the hell??!! Might have been 2 fight scenes but it was over quickly, not worth the read. Lots of cussing and a man whore (main character) who's sex capades are nauseating! Won't be reading the 2nd book at all!

I was invested!

This was a really fun story! I got invested in Jack and Lucy's story. There were lots of good ideas, and I loved the concept.

The VO performance was phenomenal and really added to my enjoyment. I recommend this if you're looking for something fun and engaging!

A Reaper for the Keeper

I just loved this book! I’m so happy I have both the book and the audiobook. My favorite setup are books that have graveyard scenes. I loved how the author does the souls after death. The auras the main character could see are beautiful. Lucy finds out she is the Chosen One. Now all the Reapers want her dead. Just because she is the one to end them doesn’t mean it involves killing them all. Well, I think it will be because her and the head Reaper, Jack, hooked up. After all, she only wats to live a peaceful life.

There was so much action in this book. Jack’s mother is evil. There were some close calls. I loved Lucy’s dad. I’m curious to see how Jack will feed from souls in the future. Loved Ethan and all the other characters. Hope everyone gets their own book. I would also like to see a Christmas book with Lucy’s family.

The narrator was great and did the voices wonderfully. This really brought the book to life.

Tradition vs. Love

Such a great unique story line, love the Estmond clan, especially Liv and Lucy. While they both have great instincts they also trust their gut feelings and don’t make snap judgements. The narrator was phenomenal and really brought the story to life. Cannot wait to hear #2!
