Nice Backstory

But be aware that the narrator is different from the main books. Nash sounds like an idiot stoner and it put me off a bit.

Quick prequel

This is a quick little prequel to the Soul Screamers series. It focuses mainly around Tod, but there are flashes of background information about Nash as well. There's nothing here that's needed to continue on with the full-length novels -- you won't be missing any key information and left scratching your head later if you skip this -- but fans of the series will still be interested.

This was published between the third and fourth Soul Screamers novels and contains a tiny hint of set-up for the fourth book, but it could probably be read any time after the second. This story contains a slight spoiler that gives away a little bit of info from the second book, so I would recommend reading the first two books before this unless that wouldn't bother you.

This has a male narrator to reflect the temporary shift of the main character to Tod, and I thought he was good. But in the main novels, Tod's voice is all scratchy. In this, Tod's voice is normal and Nash's voice is the scratchy one!

Great backstory on Tod/Nash/Sabine!

I really enjoyed this story, we get to learn so so much about Tod, he is one of my favorite characters in this series. I was concerned that A. Ronconi was not narrating this book but pleasantly surprised by the reader. He did a fabulous job and I am very very picky and hard to please when it comes to audiobooks!

This is a MUST if you are reading the series.

Great story about Tod

After reading reviews, I added this story to my library and I am so glad I did. While I agree that the narrator's "Nash" voice is off-putting, the story line provides some great background information about Tod. I do think that one could listen to this story before any of the other books, but I think I would have enjoyed it even more before book 3 to understand Tod and Nash's relationship.

The POV of Todd

I really enjoyed the POV of Todd and getting a look at how he ended up a reaper. This story has made the character grow on me more and look forward to seeing where he ends up in the series.

Reaper has a soul?

Who knew the Reaper was that sweet? He’s been a bit of a devil the whole time he’s appeared in previous novels. I think Love is on its way!

Really Good Backstory

At first, I wasn't going to listen to this installment because I thought it might not matter what the story was about Nash's brother. But I am glad I did listen. I found myself wishing there was more story and I thoroughly enjoyed this very short story, hardly a novella. Good narrator, too.
I love this series.

Narrator Ruined it for Me

Would you try another book from Rachel Vincent and/or Anthony Haden Salerno?

I love the series and like this book, but trying to listen to it was impossible because of the narrator. I was very happy to see that it went back to Amanda Ronconi for book 4.
