Run From the Reaper by Cristian Young Miller

I won this book from the Member Giveaways on Library Thing.

I found this book to be just ok. It did have a good message, but it was a "different" book.

This is the story of Jon, who is a professor at the local college. He is a loner but has a friend named Nicki, who is only present at the beginning of the book. He and Nicki are on their way home from a night out and come upon a car accident involving his friend and coach, Thomas. Thomas is the first character introduced in this book, and he is being chased by the Red Reaper. After the car accident, the book continues on with Jon's story. Jon is secretly in love with a girl from his class named Sarah. Since Jon saw the car accident, the Red Reaper is now following him. Apparently the Red Reaper causes your deepest wants and desires to come true, unbeknownst to Jon.

This is a well written story, however, it just wasn't my cup of tea. I did realize the moral of the story is basically, be careful what you wish for, it just might come true. I would recommend this to those who like abstract fiction and fantasy fiction. Sorry, only 3 stars from me.
