Book Review: The Reapers - The Hunted Series


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

Having been a reaper as long as she can remember, Nivian knows that what she does is essential in maintaining balance. After being assigned to a rushed mark she finds that there is more to this human than any other she has encountered.

Kain had been living an ordinary life without a second thought until he meets Nivian who turns his world upside down. He is thrust into a world of hunters and reapers. The keepers of life and death have been feuding for centuries over a reason no one can even remember.

With Kain having been marked for reaping, and Nivian being hunted, they forge a friendship and together must find the truth in order to keep balance in check. Wrong choices could destroy everything. As they journey they discover hidden histories, powers, and lies and truths that have been spun since the beginning of time. The consequence of failure, unimaginable.

My Review

I have finally finished the first book of "The Hunted Series - The Reapers". The author is Ali Winters and it is 263 pages long. I was just skimming down my kindle books list for something good to read and it was the first book I came upon.
Nivian is chasing her mark when the weirdest thing happens.... A human sees her! A human can't see a reaper unless a reaper wants to be seen; and she for one did not like being seen during reaps. Silas, the head reaper, figures out that it is not a human at all, but a watcher; or what they now call hunters. Silas is so scared of the imbalance that hunters cause, he gave Nivian a new mark. The hunter Kain Evers. She then tries to confront him about being a hunter, but he doesn't know anything about his double life. After that, she starts spending time with him and falls for him. Will the war between the reapers and the hunters tear them apart?

It is a great book! I like the plot and how there are reapers (guardians of death) and watchers/hunters (guardians of life). I think it's funny how the main character, Nivian, said she had never tried a hamburger before, so when she tries it she can't help but stuff her face.
