I’ve always felt like an average girl … except for my strange relationship with death. You could say I like to court it. Whether I’m soaring through the air as a flyer for Specter University’s cheer squad, or speeding down the steepest mountain with only grace and balance keeping me from an icy end, I’ve always needed to feel a rush. But now Death is courting me―in more ways than one. First, there’s Rishi, a rogue death deity who has a penchant for annoying me nearly to my grave and whose intense gaze has the power to see right through me. Then there’s Hades, who I’d rather had stayed just a myth. Now that he knows I exist, he’s not going to leave me alone until I meet the same end as my mother.
Oh yeah, did I forget to mention her? I spent my whole life thinking she had died when I was a baby, but now I’ve found out she’s much more than dead. Fifty years ago, Hades banished my mother from the underworld and took away her ability to cross over souls―souls that have wandered lost through the world ever since. Now she wants me to clean up the mess. You may have heard of her before…
They call her the Grim Reaper.
BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON
I was given a copy of this book by the Publisher for an honest review.
THE REAPER’S DAUGHTER is a fantastic boo, that will have you laughing and crying. The characters and story line are well-developed. Blake is at her first year of college and the day of her birthday she finds out that she is the Grim Reaper’s daughter. She finds out when her boyfriend Geoff is killed in a car wreck a few blocks from her house. She sees his soul at the crash site and she tries to find a way to bring him back, but she eventually has to cross him over. Her Mother THE GRIM REAPER tells her that she has to reap all the souls that have built up for fifty years. This is because Hades has closed her reaper portal and now she cannot reap any souls. She also has lost her Scythe, and must get it from Hades so they can re-open her portal. They are now are in a rush against time and Hades’ kids before one of them kill Blake. I loved this story line and cannot wait to see what is in store for Blake. I give THE REAPER’S DAUGHTER 5/5 STARS.
