Cover Reveal: Reaper's Novice by Cecilia Robert

I'm really excited to share this cover and blurb with you today because I know Cecilia and I've had the pleasure of reading Reaper's Novice. It's a great story, and I couldn't be happier for Cecilia.



Synopsis:

17- year- old Ana Maria Tei’s life has always been perfect: loving parents,  good grades, and a future so bright it outshone the sun. But now words like “separation” and “divorce” are sending her world plummeting to hell. Determined to keep her family intact, Ana plans a family-bonding trip from Vienna to Tuscany. Except fate has other plans. Ana’s parents and siblings are killed in a car accident on their way to pick Ana up from school.

Enter Grim, aka Ernest. He promises to relinquish the four souls if Ana agrees to trade her soul for theirs and serve a lifetime as his novice. In order for Ana to graduate from her Reaper’s Novice station to a Soul Collector graduate, Grim puts her to test. To her horror, she finds out becoming a Reaper’s Novice didn’t happen by chance.  It was preordained, and she is forced to make a choice:  save her family’s souls or come to terms with who she really is and complete the task set for her. 

Genre: YA Urban Fantasy

    1. Ooh, I have to plug another reaper novel. I'm reading INBETWEEN by Tara Fuller right now and it's great. So two great reaper books. Yay!

      Delete
    2. oooh , I've eyed Tara's book for a while now. I'll get myself a copy :)

    3. @Kelly - I love that I will get some good winter reading in. I am surprised there are even two reaper books out, it's an underutilized plot.

      @Cecilia - I am intrigued! The cover has a very enticing affect. One side it seems like everyone equates to a soul and the other-side looks like Hogwarts :-) Okay, maybe not Hogwarts. But you get the vibe of split worlds. I like another's below comment about Oz, sort of fits.

  8. Great cover. The pigtails suggest a Dorothy/Oz vibe that seems in keeping with the story.

  9. Not a big fan of the title font, but love the cover and love that we're finally seeing YA books with a non-white girl front and center! The blurb sounds interesting, I'll have to check it out.

  14. I like how you can see the narrow city street in the background and the figures behind her. From the description it sounds like the main character will have a very tough decision to make.
