Publisher's Summary

The balance of life and death must be protected at all costs.

Nivian had never failed to reap a marked soul. That is, until she meets Kain Evers, a Hunter and the only being on earth with the power to destroy her. 

When Reapers start to go missing, the Balance is thrown into turmoil, forcing Nivian and Kain to trust each other as they search for answers. Which is no easy task as they fight the feelings growing between them. 

As mortal enemies, they were never meant to work together, now they're forced to protect each other if they want any hope of righting the Balance before all is lost. 

Unfortunately, to succeed, one of them must die. 

Intense, gripping, and romantic, fans of Maggie Stiefvater and Bella Forrest will love The Reapers. See why listeners are calling it “a gripping tale!”

Great PNR!

I love PNR and truly enjoyed this original storyline and its fresh new twists. This was my first reaper storyline and I found it quite entertaining. I can't wait to read more!

The narration was fantastic. Sarah Colton gave a great performance, adding feeling and depth to each character. I was very pleased and would love to listen to more by her.

Overall, I thought this was a great NA read and would gladly recommend it to other PNR fans.

YA Paranormal Fantasy!

The Reapers (The Hunted Series, Book 1) is a ya paranormal/fantasy novel that is told in third person multi-pov with each chapter lists character who's thoughts are being voiced. The odyssey of the life of a grim reaper is told in a pie-in-the-sky kind of way. With a creative backdrop that is intriguing. As the story evolves it gets better & keeps you ontoes. Character's are well seasoned with detailed backgrounds & elements that tie them all together. I loved Nivian & Kain Evers character's & interactions. Darkness vs light, who's side to join, all unanswered questions in this unparagoned fantasy. A spoonful dose of romance infused with mystery, unveiling of secrets & a unimaginable twist. A fun & entertaining listen.

Narator Sarah L Colton enhanced the experience with a smooth pace and tone. Her performance brought pleasure to listening to this audiobook.

Looking forward to listening to the next audiobook in this series.

GREAT WORLD...

The Reapers is taking a classic tale of the Grim Reaper, and turning it into a story of magic, mystery and above all else, love and romance. As reader, I fell in love with the story itself. Ali put her heart and soul into making this story come to life and she exceeded many expectations. I firmly believe she had proved herself to be one of the Greats. This was a geart listen and i can't wait for more of this series. 🎧AudiobookObsession

Great book

This was an interesting story with great characters and world building. The book is written on a unique concept and I will say that there are very few books written about grim reapers. With all the twist and turns in this book keeping you on your toes I must say the narrator did a good job with her performance.

An Intriguing listen

Ali Winters has a wonderful twist on life and death in our world. The Hunters and the Reapers. Eternal enemies out to kill each other. Sometimes… Although a YA fantasy, Ali brings Nivian, Kain, and Caspain to life and sends them through on a serious, yet funny journey to save the world, and each other. If not done right, multiple POV’s can ruin a great storyline. Ali does a great job of multiple POV’s and lets you experience the story and get to know the characters from many different perceptions. This book has it all. Humor, anger, love, and tragedy.
I thought the story started off a bit slow, but, it picked up and moved at a steady pace. Nivian and Kain’s ignorance of the worlds they are both in and thrust into makes for very humorous moments. The character development is good, but, I would have liked to see more history which I am sure will come around in the next books. Sarah L. Colton did a good job with the narration and her voice really brought out the humor Ali crafted so well.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary honest review.

Fantastic story, exciting and fun

Great book, wonderful world building. There were some really really funny parts, especially as Nivian starts to get more acclimated to the human world. As a reaper, she is “eternal” but not well experienced in the human world. So her foray into understanding humans was really funny (Laundromat scene had me laughing out loud). I love Kain. He obviously didn’t understand (or care) that they were supposed to be mortal enemies and the first time they hung out was hilarious but also very heart warming. As their relationship evolves, it's even more clear that a strong relationship is forming that will be an important basis for the rest of the series. Although they are supposed to be enemies, they are drawn to each other and each possesses a strong sense of fairness. I really enjoyed the intricacies of their relationship with each other and with others of the supporting cast.

The world is fascinating with a great supportive cast. It’s going to be interesting to see how everything plays out with Silas and Caspian. I can’t wait to see how this story evolves. I received the audio from the author for an unbiased review but I liked it so much, I bought the book too.

The narrator was pretty good. I thought that there wasn't as much variance in voices between the different characters but she did a good job delineating the different characters if there was back and forth banter (including a couple of characters with English(?) accents.) But I thought she had a wonderful smooth voice and it sounded good even at 1.5x the speed.

The Reapers

I really enjoyed this book. It is such a unique view on Reapers. I really like Niv and find her wide eyed enjoyed and enthusiasm of the world very refreshing. The other characters in the story are well written and the story is very enjoyable to listen to.
The narrator does a great job.

Best story ever

It has a very extraordinary plot. It has a different perspective than most books I’ve read. We need more books like this.
I loved nivi’s personality. I loved the more than one reaper premise. The way the author describes the world around Nivi kept me engrossed to the end. The narrator did a great job as well capturing the characters different personalities.

The Reapers by Ali Winters

I always tell myself that I'm not into Fantasy genre but whenever I hear something this good I instantly forget that thoughts. This book is so wonderful and if you are not into Fantasy like me *snorts* you would still definitely like this.. it's action packed for me and definitely a five star read.

The narration by Sarah Colton in my opinion gave this book a more pleasant appeal by her wonderful voice.

Totally enjoyable and entertaining.. a must read or listen!

Reapers AudiobookObsession

Wow! What a story! Oh my goodness! The narration of this story was superb, excellent, amazing and outstanding. And the story, there are no words to tell my fellow readers how AWESOME it is. I couldn't stop listening. I was up until the wee hours of the morning longing to find out what would happen next. The twists and turns had me glued to my seat, not wanting to move because I was in fear that I would miss something important. "The Reapers" has become one of my all time favorite audiobooks.


Ps: After listening to this, I bought all of the books in the series.

Enjoyable YA Fantasy

This story was unique and interesting. There was a romance aspect to the story but it was very clean and innocent making this a YA friendly book. The narrator was easy to listen too but her characters were a little flat. There wasn't a lot of distinction between them. Overall I did enjoy it and would consider listening to more in the future.

What a great book by Ali Winters!!

This book was so engaging and otherworldly!! I lost myself in the otherworldly for a little bit and enjoyed it. The characters, the narrators, the writing, everything just came together so well, it worked so well. Loved it.

Great book, wonderful world building. Very funny at times. I love how the relationship forms between Nivian and Kain. Although they are supposed to be enemies, they are drawn to each other. I really enjoyed the intricacies of their relationship with each other and with others of the supporting characters. The world is fascinating as are the characters.

Who to trust??

This audiobook was given to me in exchange for an honest review at my request. This story had a lot going on. It opens up with Nivian just trying to do her job and then she gets roped into a battle of trying to figure out how to keep the balance.

It seems as though throughout this entire book Nivian does not know who to trust. She is told not to trust Kain however she forms a bond with him. Even near the end of the story and she is still unsure of everybody's loyalties. Yes she trust her fellow reapers however there were moments where she was completely over it. She was ready to give up because there was a lot of pressure going on.

Also the big bad was not what I was expecting. I was expecting the antagonist of the story to continue throughout the series however it seems as though the antagonist is gone. I'm really hoping that in the next books explore what happened to the protagonist as well as their followers. I would also like to know what the Silas have going on? He seems like a shady character because he briefly talked about using cane and he is supposed to be the good guy right? However like I said before it looks like no one can be trusted at this point.

This one just didn't "click" for me

As an audiophile, I think that a lot of the time I can be tired off of a story if I don't like the narrator's delivery, and I'm afraid that's what happened here. Sarah Colton had a very jerky delivery, with over-accentuated pauses in her sentences and it just did not sit well with me. Eventually I had to speed the book up just to get through the first several chapters, but even with speeding her speaking up enough to make it seem more fluid, I still was too distracted by her style. She wasn't monotone but still seemed almost robotic with reference to the emotionless tone of her voice. However the story was entertaining and had an interesting premise, but alas, I didn't finish the book :(

Great fantasy comevand get it

Book 1 in the series . This story will grab your attention from the first paragraph right till the end . It’s not your typical fantasy, PNR story Ali the author took 2 characters and made them enjoyable. Some parts made you laugh over the antics . There were a few of those Ali , the author wrote a different kind of reapers story . Most reapers cause death but not in this one
Hero is Kain. Heroine is Nivian
Nivian comes to earth for a reason , but she doesn’t know how to take life on earth . She tried to blend in but she stands out .
Kari is her sworn enemy , but they both , Kain and Nivian form a strong friendship, not realizing they have to hate each other .
Will they continue to have the friendship. Grab it and see
The performance of Sarah is great. Her voice is strong, steady , clear and she brings the scenes to life
