***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Thrust into a world of men, can a timid girl find bravery as the first female Death?
Thirteen-year-old Suzie Sarnio always believed the Grim Reaper was a fairy tale image of a skeleton with a scythe. Now, forced to enter the College of Deaths, she finds herself training to bring souls from the Living World to the Hereafter. The task is demanding enough, but as the only female in the all-male College, she quickly becomes a target. Attacked by both classmates and strangers, Suzie is alone in a world where even her teachers want her to fail.
Scythes hungry for souls, Deaths who subjugate a race of mysterious magicians, and echoes of an ancient war with Dragons.
As her year progresses, Suzie suspects her presence isn’t an accident. She uncovers a plot to overthrow the World of Deaths. Now she must also discover the reason she’s been brought there: the first female Death in a million years.
Amazing Story! I found myself immersed in the story from the first page! Christopher Mannino is a fabulous author who really knows how to captivate his audience. The characters where captivating and the storyline adventurous, mysterious and fascinating.
the one girl in a all boys world was a genius idea, it not only leaves her vulnerable but helps her to find her strengths at the same time. Frank was my favourite character, not only for what we find out about him but because he never doubts Suzie throughout no matter what she faces.
I am a HUGE fan of reaper stories and this one is right at the top with my other favs as it was a blast to read! I really hope that there is more as I would like to see what happens next!
The villain in this one was great as well as they were stealthy and evil minded just as a good villain should be. I am really looking forward to seeing what he will be up to in the next book if there is one.
If you have a great love of reaping stories like I do then this is a story for you! TBR today!
