For week three, Rachel and Kit have located the Reaper terrorising Vancouver’s supernatural community – and it isn’t William Grange. Something’s horribly wrong, though. The reaper appears to be starved, and unconcerned about hunting during daylight in a city alleyway. Rachel rushes in to try and save a potential victim, but memories of a previous reaper attack cause her to faulter. As the reaper turns his attention to Rachel, Kit is forced to step in.
The word that rumbled free from Kit’s throat was pure wraith—a deep, sinister growling tone that chilled Rachel to the bone. Before she could say a word, Kit hurled the reaper down the alley. The monster flew through the air several feet, landing in an untidy heap before scrambling desperately to his feet. The motion seemed to trigger something in Kit. His hair became dark and lank, and his outline blurred in and out. He was going into a full wraith shift, but it was anger-fuelled, uncontrolled.

This time the dead are hungry…
Rachel Miller doesn’t just see dead people, she rescues them. As a member of The Order of Rescue Mediums, she spends most of her time helping stubborn spirits move on from the world. But after she learns the details of three brutal murders, she knows the culprit can only be a reaper, an undead monster that relentlessly stalks its victims to feed on their souls.
A reaper once consumed the soul of Rachel’s mentor as she watched frozen in fear. Now, Rachel is in the role of teacher to Kit Elkeles, a rodach just learning to control his wraithlike powers. After Kit and Rachel rescue a half-vampire, they work to protect him while searching for a way to stop the reaper. But when Rachel realizes who the monster is really after—and just what kind of dark magic she’ll need to stop it—will she be able to do what is necessary before it devours one of her friends…or even herself?
(F.Y.I. - The Lost Souls series are not written as stand alone books. For maximum enjoyment, I’d highly suggest reading them in order, starting with The Stubborn Dead.)
