Kain had been living an ordinary life without a second thought until he meets Nivian who turns his world upside down. He is thrust into a world of hunters and reapers. The keepers of life and death have been feuding for centuries over a reason no one can even remember.
With Kain having been marked for reaping, and Nivian being hunted, they forge a friendship and together must find the truth in order to keep balance in check. Wrong choices could destroy everything. As they journey they discover hidden histories, powers, and lies and truths that have been spun since the beginning of time. The consequence of failure, unimaginable.
Nivian is a Reaper who reaped humans’ life energy from them to be resorted into the earth. Reapers are given a mark and the reapers choose how to have the humans’ life end. Nivian was given a mark and while Nivian was playing out the way the marks’ life would end another human stepped in and saved the marks life. A reaper cannot be seen by any human unless the reaper allows them to see them or seconds before the reaper cuts the life energy from the human.
Kain is the human who steps in to save the makes’ life at the last minute while he was also distracted by the reaper he saw in the middle of the street; which he didn’t understand why she would be standing in such a dangerous place. Kain found himself seeing this woman stalking him wherever he went, so he decided he was going to find out why she was stalking him. From the moment they met face to face, and finally talked, their lives would forever be changed; and possible the worlds.
I really enjoyed reading this book from the beginning to finish.
Everything these two went through together struggling within them and with each other kept me on my toes until the end. You will read unexpected twists throughout this book that had my jaw drop at the understanding of what I just read.
I have not read anything about reapers, so I am very happy to say that I was pleased to read this book by Ali and understand every little detail about what she was describing.
I give The Reapers by Ali Winters 4.5 stars and I am excited to read what she has next for us.
