Waiting on Wednesday (42)

My Soul to Reap by Courtney Allison Moulton (2011 (!!)--Katherine Tegan Books)

"When seventeen-year-old Ellie starts seeing reapers--monstrous creatures who devour humans and send their souls to Hell--she finds herself on the front lines of a supernatural war between Seraphim and the Fallen and faced with the possible destruction of her soul.

A mysterious boy named Will reveals she is the reincarnation of an ancient warrior, the only one capable of fighting the reapers, and he is an immortal sworn to protect her in battle. Now that Ellie's powers have been awakened, a powerful reaper called Bastian has come forward to challenge her. He has employed a fierce assassin to eliminate her--an assassin who has already killed her once.

While balancing her dwindling social life and reaper-hunting extracurriculars, she and Will discover Bastian is searching for a dormant creature believed to be a true soul reaper. Bastian plans to use this weapon to destroy Ellie's soul forever, ending her rebirth cycle. Now, she must face an army of Bastian's most frightening reapers, prevent the soul reaper from consuming her soul, and uncover the secrets of her past lives--including truths that may be too frightening to remember."

When I first the summary I was pretty much excited with multiple exclamation points following that. But when I visited the author's website and saw the stunning background I was sold! Yue Wang, the artist who drew the [fan]art as shown to the left, did a magnificent job that only added to my excitement! The author also made a short book trailer for the book....


2011 cannot come fast enough! Sequels will also be coming out! And do check out the YA Rebels, a group of YA vloggers that the author of this book is part of.
