Reaper (A Soul Screamers Novella) by Rachel Vincent
Unfortunately Tod is not one of the main characters, although I would place him in the major charator category, you never really get to hear his side of the story until now. A major Thank you to Rachel for giving us a chance to learn a little more about, in my opinion, one of her more interesting characters.
And because of this novella I am even more in love with Tod Hudson. I am the oldest of two and I would give my life for my little sister, this is exactly what Tod does. From the first three books we learn he was killed in a car accident but what we didn't know was that it really wasn't his time to go, but Nash's and because he is a true hero he offers himself to the reaper in exchange for his brother's life. Nash doesn't know any of this I wonder if it comes out in the most recent Soul Screamers installment (My Soul to Steal released 1/4/2010 aka it's available now) which I haven't had a chance to read yet.
We also learn how Tod became a reaper, and that before Kaylee came into Nash's life Tod had actually seen her strapped to a bed in a hospital (if you are confused check out the first novella of the series, My Soul to Lose (Soul Screamers #0.5), which may attest to his protectiveness of her. We also learn a little more about Nash's relationship with Sabine, an ex-girlfriend who appears in MSTS.
This is a must read for any Soul Screamers fan. Oh and if I haven't said it enough I love Tod Hudson!
