Publisher's summary

Hidden abilities, haunting memories, and one confused girl. 

I’m a reaper. Death should come naturally to me, but it doesn’t. And the abilities I am able to conjure are forbidden by my kind. My parents try to hide my abilities, but when the elders assign my first target, they order my parents to stay back. 

Now I’m on my own, with no one to protect me, no idea what I’m doing, and no control over the powers I’m supposed to keep hidden. 

I should have known this would blow up in my face. 

My family name is ruined, and I have to fix what I’ve ripped. I’m not sure I have what it takes. The fate of my entire kind is on my shoulders, and I’m the only one who can make things right. But if I mess up again, it won’t just be my family that I break - our entire world will be ruined. 

Tomb Raider meets Touched in The Artifact Reaper Saga, a paranormal listen for those who love a dark twist.

One big adventure!

Think this is one of those few stories that are even better when listened to than by reading it yourself, merely because the great fit of the narrator.
This one really made this story come to life, she truly did a great job.

In this story there are more kinds of supernaturals but it really focuses on the Reapers. The main character seems to have a different sort of power than other reapers do. At age 10, on her first job, she finds her subject in a totally different way than normal reapers. They don’t just “find” their subject, they need to track them down. So her parents, ever so eager to please the counsil and fearing their daughter’s unnatural power being used against them, lowering their status umongst the reaper society, forbade her to use that power ever again. Furthermore, they demand she reaps souls just the way they -and all other reapers- do. But this doesn’t feel natural to her and she keeps struggling to reap souls.

So much so, that each time (during Those 7, nearly 8 years,) she is out with her family training to reap souls, her father needed to help, to do the actual reaping.
I love that it describes how that happens. When a reaper reaps, they need to make physical contact and pull the soul into their own body. Not to consume them or anything like that, their body just act like a conduit to bring the soul to the proper place in their afterlife. Interesting concept.

Since she hasn’t succeeded in reaping even just one soul completely alone it isn’t a far stretch that things would go wrong on her first solo mission.
Her assignment turns out to be almost an exact copy of her belated best friend Beth, whom she lost a few years back. Dumbstruck she can only look at the girl for a minute. When another reaper shows up to reap the girl’s soul, Christina -Chris- does what comes natural to her and she brings the soul back to the girl that ought to be dead. Of course, this doesn’t go unnoticed and that’s when all things go south.

To redeem not just herself but save her parents as well -whom’s lives are in jeopardy just because they failed to teach her properly -the Reaper Council is not generous nor kind- she has to find an artifact. 4 artifacts in fact.

When Christina accepts the deal (not that she had much choice), she couldn’t possibly know what she would set in motion but there is no going back.

This is a captivating story, roughly one book per artifact, the speed of what is revealed about the (in hindsight ominous) artifacts is pleasant.
Throughout the four books the main character Christina has the mental growth from being a teenager that isn’t seeing the repercussions that certain actions or agreements might have, to someone who learns from their mistakes and can factor in the consequences of certain actions she might take... or won’t.

Interesting worldbuilding and some hilarious interactions make for a story that has enthralled me from start to finish.
And some might have problems with the way this series ends but I think it is the best possible outcome that doesn’t seem too convenient or farstretched. I needed to let this story cultivate for a bit before writing this and I have thought of this series a lot, every time with the same fondness as before. This is one I’ll gladly listen to again. Like I said, the narrator really does bring the MC and the story to life!

So Much Potential Clouded by Teenage Angst

When I heard this was a book on Reapers, I was really intrigued coupled with the neat cover. It started a little slow, but I had already promised myself I’d finish the book no matter what. For starters, I would put this book in the YA/Teen section with the exception for some language & violence. Christina doesn’t have any romantic interests in book 1. I will start with the fact that I haven’t listened to Shelley Reece before, and she did a pretty good job narrating. She has a lot of emotion and does a good job sucking you in at exciting scenes.

The main character, Christina, is just so hard for me to connect with as an adult. She’s supposed to be 19, almost 20, but she honestly acts like my daughter did at 14. She’s so mousey and submissive to her parents who are complete jackholes. The downright verbally and emotionally abuse her, and her attitude towards it is more discouraging than empowering when she later finds her voice. There are so many more opportunities to expand on the world she’s created, but a lot of it is focused on her relationship with her parents, and turmoil over her past. She continues to flounder through her situation and it takes 2/3 of the book for her to confide in anyone. Christina spends most of her time at her house, leaving to do something, get scared, and run back home, only to decide she needs to get something else done and leaves again. She’s been “training” her whole life for her Reaper abilities, but seems completely naïve about other supernaturals, even though they reap their souls too. There’s so many unfinished and unexplained aspects about Christina, her abilities, and situation, that it’s just hard to continue with the series. If I wasn’t wrapped up in a series already, I’d probably keep reading for something to do, but I wasn’t honestly driven to continue the series. Sadly.

Amazing story

I liked everything about this series. It ended on a good note, but it has a way for a spin off. lol at least I'd like to see what happens with the characters, and where they end up. jmo but I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves a good story with reapers and magic

Good Series!

I enjoyed this series! This is only the second series I have listened to about reapers and I really liked it. It was a different concept from my regular books and kept me interested. The narration was good. I am glad the whole series came with one credit.

Boris

This book was nothing but self flagellation and demoralization from both friends and family. Do not allow impressionable minds to read this for gods sake do not.

Artifact reaper

I love how in each book Christina gets more and more stronger. What I mean by stronger is she starts to stand up for herself, but knows that to get to the end game she needs to play her cards right.
