Reaper by Rachel Vincent

Tod Hudson was a typical teenager. He liked girls, sports, food and tolerated his younger brother, Nash. In fact, he had his whole life in front of him--and due to his bean sidhe heritage, it was going to be a very long life indeed. And then the car accident occurred.

Suddenly Tod's future wasn't so sure, and he had to make a choice. Life... Death... or something Between....

The Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent is one of the most unique set of young adult books I have had the pleasure of reading. Reaper aligns itself with the beginning of My Soul to Lose, the prequel that began the series. And in this enovella we get to see an entirely different side of Tod, the one that he hides from the rest of the world behind sarcasm and snarkiness. We learn of his beginnings as a Reaper, and just what he sacrificed to save his brother. Even though he is dead, Tod is still unwilling to give up the role of big brother, when he returns after ten days of being dead; he simply cannot see his brother suffer with the guilt of how he died. So he takes on the lonely job of being a Reaper in order to talk to his family again, even if that is against the rules.
