Summary: 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 archangels 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 wielding swords of angelfire to fight 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 duties, 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
ignite the End of Days and to destroy Ellie's soul, ending her rebirth cycle
forever. 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.
My Thoughts: Very exciting! And isn't that cover beautiful? Reminds me of Hush Hush's color scheme though. Doesn't sound like it's going to have romance in it but i'm willing to bet that Ellie and Will are going to dive in the romance pool. The plot is very unique, it'll be exciting to read a good book about other supernatural be-ings other then werewolves, vampires, faeries and witches. (Not that I don't love my my mythical characters, change is just always good) ;)
