About The Book
THE BOOGEYMAN IS REAL
Gregory and his little sister Imogen love spending Halloween with their parents. But this year is different. If he proves he can take care of Imogen all by himself, he’ll finally have the allowance he’s dreamed of.
That was before the basement door opened on its own. Before the strange door appeared in the basement and Imogen was taken from him by the monster.
Now everyone in town is blaming him for her disappearance, but no one is listening to his story. Where did the door come from? What was that creature? And most of all, can he find his sister before it’s too late, or will he bury his memories of her along with his parents?

Dark Reads Review
This was a fun nostalgic read for me, it reminded me of a slightly more adult version of the Goosebumps and Point Horror stories I loved as a child.
There was certainly some creepy imagery and some tense moments, a nice little Halloween bogyman story.
I often find with a Novella, especially as short as this one, I just don’t get the depth of character I crave when reading a book, also I felt the ending felt a little rushed but again this was due to the length of the book. It was left open enough for a potential re-visit to this story in the future, I would definitely want to read a follow up to this one!
Overall I enjoyed Reaper, it was a quick fun read and was well written. One to read curled up on Halloween night with loads of sweets..If you don’t have a basement that is!!
