Run From The Reaper is a Fun Read.
The book cover is what initially drew me to this book. The cover looks like it belongs on a horror novel. This is not a horror novel. More precisely, it is a short novella. It is a story about the Reaper. Not the Grim Reaper but his lesser known cousin the Red Reaper. Rather than collect your soul after death, the Red Reaper gives you your most heartfelt desire.
The story begins with Coach Thomas running, running from his fear. Running from his desire, running from the Red Reaper. He is found by his friends after experiencing a life altering car crash. I found it fascinating that his words after a car accident were "Don't be afraid of the Reaper."
This book is a psychological thriller. Do you know what you want? What you really want, down deep in your soul? Be careful what you wish for- you may get it- if the Red Reaper has his way. 3/5 stars
