SHORT STORY OF THE SOUL BROKER SERIES
The Reaper Hungers Like No Other.
An old enemy from the other side of afterlife management cheated him out of his last soul. Now the Reaper seeks an ordinary meal of desperation, anguish, and despair from the next human on his docket. Unfortunately, interference in the way of a meddlesome mortal woman thwarts his plan.
Naturally, this woman must pay. But Vivian Bedford is no ordinary mortal. Her interference in his reaping is decidedly supernatural. Lazarus Darkmore has been on the hunt for a challenge, an exquisitely damaged soul from whom he can siphon darkness. Vivian could be that soul.
Then again, if she possesses the power of a Soul Broker, she could prove more valuable—if she survives the Reaper’s gauntlet.

Chasing the Dead is a prequel short story set before the main events of the Soul Broker series (Waking the Dead is vol. 1), and is told from the point of view of the Reaper, Lazarus Darkmore. It deals with his introduction to Vivian Bedford and how she catches his attention - just on the verge of Reaping a Soul. This one caught me right at the beginning and sucked me in. Lazarus was relatable, if not particularly likable at this moment. I enjoyed it and read right through to the teaser for the first book. Definitely piqued my interest, and made me want to dig into Waking the Dead. Full Disclosure: I received Chasing the Dead through Librarything's Early Reviewer program.
