A Tale Of Two Reapers
The job of reaping is a lonely one. Why? There has only ever been one Reaper. Grim has spent centuries ensuring the souls of the dying are made available for reuse. But when he mistakenly reaps X, a woman whose soul was very much alive, his eternity is flipped on its head.
Fate has given Grim a very short time to train his new partner in the ways of Reaping. Should he fail, his eternal life is forfeit. Unfortunately, even the best laid plans go astray…especially when X unleashes a malicious soul that threatens to undo the fabric of reality.
And ruin a completely good eternity.

A Song for Julia – By Charles Sheehan-Miles
Crank Wilson left his South Boston home at sixteen to start a punk band and burn out his rage at the world. Six years later, he’s still at odds with his father, a Boston cop, and doesn’t ever speak to his mother. The only relationship that really matters is with his younger brother, but watching out for Sean can be a full-time job.
The one thing Crank wants in life is to be left the hell alone to write his music and drive his band to success.
Julia Thompson left a secret behind in Beijing that exploded into scandal in Washington, DC, threatening her father’s career and dominating her family’s life. Now, in her senior year at Harvard, she’s haunted by a voice from her past and refuses to ever lose control of her emotions again, especially when it comes to a guy.
When Julia and Crank meet at an anti-war protest in Washington in the fall of 2002, the connection between them is so powerful it threatens to tear everything apart.
This book is narrated by myself and Alana Rader. The primary character I read, Crank Wilson, uses a standard Boston dialect.
