Book Description

A dark and emotional tale of love and loss.

Haunted by memories of her murdered twin, Keely Morrison is convinced suicide is her only ticket to eternal peace.

But in death, she discovers the afterlife is nothing like she expected. Instead of peaceful oblivion or a joyful reunion with her sister, Keely is trapped in a netherworld on Earth with only a bounty-hunting reaper and a sarcastic demon to show her the ropes.

When the demon offers Keely her ultimate temptation--revenge on her sister's killer--she must determine who she can trust. Because, as Keely soon learns, the reaper and demon have been keeping secrets and she fears the worst is true--that her every decision changes how, and with whom, she spends eternity.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Read! September 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Author Michelle Muto has done something for me, no other author ever has, she made me cry. This is a good thing! Don't Fear The Reaper for me was absolutely the perfect read. The story so well executed and flawlessly written. Only a few times in my life have I devoured a book and not wanted it to end. I won't do the typical rehashing the plot, because this book is too good to give anything away about it! Just read the preview blurb that should hook you! Don't Fear The Reaper has a storyline that keeps you glued to whatever format you're reading it in! The characters are so damn 3 dimensional you feel like you are right there with them every step of the way. The style of writing flows and the dialogue is spot on, never corny or over the top. As I read I found myself becoming more and more emotionally invested in all the characters, something that will make me treasure this book always and look upon it as easily my favorite read of all time.

If any agent reads this review, you would do well to grab Michelle as your client, because you will only be kicking yourself if you don't! Michelle Muto is destined to become a giant in this industry, if you don't believe me, then read "Don't Fear The Reaper," and you will know exactly what I'm talking about!

5 stars is not enough for this beautifully executed and brilliant work of literature.
So I'm breaking the rules and giving it infinity plus 1!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Reaper Cometh. November 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I originally read Michelle Muto's novel back when it first came out in 2011 and it just happened to be around the same time that news reports about two Australian twin sisters having shot themselves in an apparent suicide pact in Colorado. I have to admit that I couldn't go any further with the book at that time. I just felt uncomfortable with the premise of the novel despite the fact that Michelle Muto is an author of considerable talent and one whose work I've read and enjoyed before.

I returned to "Don't Fear The Reaper" recently, having expunged the memories of that terrible news story from my stream of consciousness and what I found in Muto's novel was a compelling journey taken by the protagonist Keely Morrison on the other side of this mortal coil. I was reminded somewhat of the film "What Lies Beneath" only in the sense that I was drawn to the possibilities that story presented and again, here in Muto's novel I was similarly attracted to her take on the after life. And, once again, Muto bends a genre to her will giving it a resounding freshness. Her characters are very well drawn and convincing. There is a sense of dark adventure within these pages and the tome is tense, exciting and thought provoking. Muto does not shy away from the exploration of suicide and its consequences both for her protagonist and for the people she has left behind. It is a risky subject to approach and yet I felt Muto addressed it in such a way that wasn't glamorizing it.

Don't Fear The Reaper is a deftly handled adventure that has moments of real emotion that makes for a rich and enjoyable reading experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book September 15, 2012
By Molmae
Don't Fear the Reaper is a beautiful story. It offers an interesting and unique perspective on a heartbreaking subject, and it does so with humor and heart. These are the kinds of characters that you fall in love with and hate to lose when the book comes to an end. I'm thrilled that there will be another book so I can spend more time with all of them, I can't wait to find out what happens in the next stage of Keely's journey and learn more about Daniel.

By lanpcs

Another excellent find in the YA ( young adult) section. Very thought provoking with some great insights into the trauma of surviving family members of suicide victims. Worth checking out other works from this Author. I was left breathless after reading this book, its hauntingly dark while still inspiring. Read this book, you won,t regret it....

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! March 5, 2012
By Stacee
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got a sneak peak of this book with chapter one on Courtney Cole's blog and it became a must read for me. I bought it, waited for it to show up on my Kindle then started to read and read and read and I didn't put it down until I was finished. Yes this book deals with a teen suicide but shows the side that most don't depict. This book made me laugh, it made me cry, and it made me think a demon was worth routing for. This is definitely a must read in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME !!!!!!!!!!!! March 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is such a hard review for me to write. I'm a reader, not a professional review or an awesome book blogger. I have to start out with this book had my feelings on an 'emotional roller coaster, starting with Page 1. Suicide is never, ever an answer and for all those out there who may have thoughts, DON'T DO IT. As a mom I'm saddened by the amount of suicides that occur everyday, most being our young people. Michelle Muto has captured the heartbreaking toll that suicide has on loved ones left behind. A total work of fiction? I get the sense that Michelle has an eerie knowledge of what may happen when we pass over. I spent a few sleepness nights reading this thought provoking story and though it may be a little dark for some at parts, overall, it was one of the best books I have read this year. If you want a story that keeps you hooked from page one until the every last, this one is for you. I've heard that there will be a second book to follow, I hope so because I want to see what transpires. As a mom, I want parents to read this book and then pass it to their teens, it might just save a life! A DEFINITE 5 STAR READ!

More About the Author

Michelle has always loved storytelling. When she was a child, her favorite stories were of monsters and things that lurked in the dark. Telling stories often frightened her classmates and got her into a lot of trouble with her teachers. They had no sense of humor.

As an adult, Michelle traded her love of writing for the corporate life where she was an IT professional. Today, she's doing what she loves best - writing and storytelling.

Michelle grew up in Chicago, but currently lives in NE Georgia with her husband and their two dogs. She loves scary books, funny movies, sports cars, chocolate, dogs, and changes of season.
