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?

I am thankful that the trolls that you talked about usually hurt only themselves. They exist in the real word too.

If you live in Canada I can understand why you're pleased not to have a white Christmas!
I'm thankful that we made it through 2012 and are in a slightly better position than when we started. The news is so continually depressing that it is good to value little victories.

I'm thankful for my family
I've had a rough year - hospital - had to make serious changes to my life - I lost my 16 yr old poodle - that was the HARDEST thing I'v had to do in my 51 years
Best wishes for 2013!

I'm thankful to have a roof over my head. A couple of years ago, I lost the place that I called home for 13 years, after my Husband lost his job, and we were living in our pop-up camper, moving to different campgrounds. I'm thankful to be living in an area of the state that I've always wanted to live, even if it's just a tiny apartment. I'm thankful for the things we have. We lost everything when we had to move, and put what we could in our tiny pick-up and camper. Basically, we started from scratch. I'm thankful for the 2 kittens who came into our lives this year. We needed some life in our apartment after our dog passed away, and they certainly foot the bill!! We've had them since the day they were born, and now they're 8 months old. The bond we have, along with the love and laughter, is priceless. We've had our share of setbacks, sure, but I'm looking forward to the coming year, because in my heart I know it's going to be a good one for a change. Have a very Happy and Healthy New Year!!
