In Death of a Grim Reaper, Cornelius Hoyt struggles to harvest souls up and down the east coast of 21st century America, and learns the true meaning of death...and life. Once a twenty year-old farmer from colonial New England, Cornelius comes to doubt whether the deaths he inflicts actually play a vital role in the universe. He joins a renegade group, and seeks refuge in the remote Russian wilderness. Meanwhile, a diabolical reaper plots to rule Death and provokes an international crisis to devastate humanity. As events escalate, Cornelius risks capture to help save the very mortals he was trained to reap, and undergoes a life affirming transformation. A brilliantly imaginative view of mortality, Death of a Grim Reaper explores the relationship between the dead and the living.
