Run From The Reaper by Cristian YoungMiller

Thursday, June 9, 2011
It awakens… Summoned by the will of a powerful psychic, The Red Reaper forces its victims to live their darkest fantasies. If they resist, they die.

In a college town during a record cold winter break, Jon, a lonely professor, wonders the empty campus barely holding on to his sanity. Unable to stay awake during the daytime he sees a red hooded creature in the shadows at night; immediately after, his twisted desires come to life.

Searching for answers he finds Clay, a local psychic who is more than he seems, and Sarah, a gorgeous expert on the underworld who has depraved secrets of her own.

Chased by demons and with the Red Reaper at every turn, the three must face their fears, survive its relentless attacks, and find a way to escape from the Reaper.

Good Reads Summary

Ever felt like something is missing from your life?  This is the type of novel that acknowledges that feeling that everyone gets once in a while.  The author has created a short story featuring a main character who has an outside facade with which he acts happy and unconcerned, but inside he is less than sure that he has everything he wants.  The author develops the main character to the point of the reader feeling like he/she knows him well enough to guess what he is thinking; the secondary characters could have used slightly more development, but this is a short story and they were not the focus of the novel.  The reader will enjoy Sarah's take-charge attitude and Clay's subtle confidence.  The events in this book never leave the reader lagging, there is always something going on that will keep the reader's interest.  The novel ends well, the reader doesn't have to worry about unfinished business.  This novel is great for adults who enjoy reading about a character who truly allows his readers into his life.
