Fear the Reaper

427 pages6 hours


But be warned, fellow traveler… this is not just a book—it is a journey into the very life of Death.

Listen to the tales of the afterlife: Halloween, vampires, Heaven, Hell, Armageddon, zombies, death-bringing angels, ghosts, cults, ritual killings, nightmares from Vietnam... The lists goes on and on.

Ever wondered if it was possible to cheat death? To kill Death?
Did you know Death was a girl?
Or that it’s possible to escape and even become death?

The fear of death is as real as you and I.

You’ll be forced to answer the hard questions, and find out the answers to so much more. Like why you’re really here. Or the secret behind our fascination with the afterlife, not to mention the horrors of the actual event. These are not just stories but horrific experiences of pain and death: the deaths of lonely people, famous people, entire worlds, the death of innocence, and the pain of those left behind as they await their turn, wondering what it will be like.

No one is safe from the Reaper!
