The story of how Tod died and was recruited as a reaper . . .
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 . . . .
I’ve read this book in about one hour and let me tell you that it was one hell of a hour. Everything about this novella was intriguing and right on target. If anything, it made me want Tod even more.
This novella is base on Tod and the events leading up to his death. Ms. Vincent wrote a wonderful story fulfilling everything I wanted to know about Tod. There were some things that were revealed that would help me understand My Soul to Steal better. Although it does make me weary to read it seeing that I know something about Nash’s past. It’s makes squirm and worry for Kaylee. *bites fingernails*
Tod was smart, witty loving brother. The things he did for Nash are want any other brother would do. I saw the hurt and pain Nash and his mother went through. Ms. Vincent successfully made me cry during that part. But nonetheless, it was a great short story that I would recommend all Soul Screamers fans to read. Ms. Vincent has once again got me hooked and begging for more.
I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!

P.S. In case you were wondering, I got this novella from ( They have it for limited time only before everyone gets it. And it’s FREE!!! Just saying’…
