This is the second book in the Lightbringer series, the first being aptly named, Lightbringer. This is a series that I strongly advise NOT to read out of order. First, it picks up where the last left off and second because the world is a bit complicated you would become lost in the never and I'm not sure you'd find your way out. Now, don't let that scare you. By reading in order the complex world becomes much easier to understand. In other words, it is just so twisty you cannot jump in the middl ...more

Triple Wow! Reaper is the sequel to Lightbringer, a book my teenage daughter introduced me to a couple months ago. If you’ve not read the first book you may want to hold off on reading this review and instead go buy the book. Right now. Seriously.

Lightbringer introduces us to Wendy, Piotr and his gang of Lost children. Sound familiar? K.D. McEntire’s modern day Peter Pan reveals a world just beyond our own where spirits and monsters dwell until they go into the light. I loved Lightbringer most f

Reaper is a fascinating and touching story built in a rich, layered world where the stakes are bigger than life or death. Constructed of the familiar elements of teen love triangles and the struggle of good vs. evil, the story never feels like just the next iteration of stock YA urban fantasy.

Wendy is the Lightbringer, a Reaper, born with the power to see into the Never, the world beyond death; a world that is as complicated and dangerous as that of the living. There are the innocent and those t

4.5/5 stars!

Oh wow. "Lightbringer" fans, prepare yourself - McEntire really brings it in this second installment of the series. New truths will be exposed, more Walkers will try to eat you, and we may just lose one of our heroes at the end. She also set up a hell of a cliffhanger to lead us into book 3. If you thought the first book was intense, this one will eat you alive. And you'll love every moment of it.

So, you'd think that with the demise of the White Lady at the end of book one that thin
I have one quibble with "Reaper" and I want to get it out in the open before I talk about the good parts. What is up with Elle's speech? I know it's hard to write flapper-slang but the author got a little crazy with it in just one chapter. Everywhere else Elle's slang is easy to follow but there's this one spot early on where I had to frown and shake my head to get past Elle's dialogue.

BUT beyond that, I loved "Reaper" a lot! It picks up where "Lightbringer" left off and just barrels full speed
Reaper (Lightbringer #2) by K. D. McEntire follows Wendy as she attempts to save Eddie's life while navigating the politics of both her powerful Reaper family and the ghosts in the Never. Piotr continues his investigation into his past, knowing that he is one of the oldest ghosts in the Never, but ends up finding answers in an unexpected way when a strange wound threatens to end his existence. Wendy accepts her family's offer to train her, and while she does learn more about her familial history ...more
This series can get a little confusing because there are different kinds of ghost, but it’s pretty good otherwise. It’s a unique Reaper series. I love most of the characters, but I don’t care for Piotr. He can’t remember his past, and I’m not sure how to say his name. Peter? Pee-tree? And his dialogue is kind of boring. I only have room in my heart for one Russian male lover interest. Dimka from VA!!! <3 …Wendy’s funny and awesome, a lot like Ellie from Angelfire. I wish Piotr was more like W ...more
Reaper is a step above and ahead of Lightbringer. McEntire has grown immensely between her two books and while Lightbringer showed immense potential, Reaper lives up to that potential. Though there are some minor issues with characterization and plotting, Reaper is sure to please. It’s a strong second installment in a young adult series that I have enjoyed immensely so far, and I’m not saying that lightly, as I usually don’t mix with YA well. McEntire has not only proved that she has a promising ...more

I could not finish this book. I got to page 170 and I was still so confused. I also could not get over Pietr's speech style. It was ANNOYING and I could not get past that. I spent 2 days trying to get through it and I finally admitted defeat. It was really pretty awful

:( I was unable to finish this book. Not because of bad writing, but because the world building and character development is so highly pre defined by the first book, I was extremely lost by having not read it and that is all on me.
As much as I enjoyed LIGHTBRINGER, I gave up after a few chapters of REAPER. I like Piotr's Russian-studded speech, but as soon as Elle and Lily showed up with their relentless, dated dialog, I couldn't keep going.
I hadn't intended to continue with this series. That said, the end was good and I'm interested in reading the next book to see where it goes. However, the rest of the book felt slow and didn't flow well.
Strange story, but I keep wanting to finish it. I might finish soon. Not too excited about it though :(
