Ever since a near-death-experience on the operating table, seventeen-year-old Arianne Wilson can see dead people. Just as she’s learned to accept her new-found talents, she discovers that the boy she’s had a crush on since freshman year, Niko Clark, is a Reaper.
At last they have something in common, but that doesn’t mean life is getting any easier. All while facing merciless bullying from the most powerful girl in school, Arianne’s world is turned upside down after Niko accidentally reaps the soul of someone she loves. This sends them both into a spiral that threatens to end Arianne’s life. But will Niko break his own Reaper’s code to save her? And what would the consequences be if he did?
Reaping Me Softly is the first book in a new paranormal series by Kate Evangelista. I love how Death and Reapers are portrayed. They were brought to life in a truly unique way.The characters are well developed and believable. Even the supporting characters have significance to the overall plot. The whole situation involving Darla and her behavior through the story was a bit overboard, but she was easy enough for me to ignore for the most part. This story isn't predictable. It definitely didn't end like I expected, and the sequel can't come fast enough. I absolutely loved this book. From page one, I felt like I was a part of its world.
