The Sadeiest - Paperback and E-book

Is today a good day to die?

Death – a walking skeleton armed with a scythe, a rider of the apocalypse, it has always been assumed – is a man that brings the souls of the dead to wherever they are destined to go.

But what if we got that wrong? What if he were a ghost that, instead of moving your soul on silently after you had died, actually did the hard part for you?

The Sadeiest is the story of a Death that has to die, again and again, to pay for his sins, to help free trapped souls leave their bodies before those bodies perish – and replace those souls, to die for them.

A Death who's existence is a curse, where the other riders of the Apocalypse are not his allies, but his enemies. 

Armed only with his morals, his memories and the advice of a child teacher, Williams, a Sadeiest, travels through the deaths of other people, on his way to becoming something greater. Something that will re-define the Grim Reaper.

Death just came to life, in time to fight for a child hunted by the other horsemen of the Apocalypse.

How do you want to die today?
