Reaper of Earth

The Artifact Reaper Saga #1
by Jen L. Grey

It’s been a while since I read Paranormal YA, so I was very excited when the author Jen L. Grey send me a copy of her new release, Reaper of Earth. The book was fast paced and fun, perfect for lovers of Urban Fantasy and Young Adult fiction.

Hidden abilities, haunting memories, and one confused girl.

I’m a reaper. Death should come naturally to me, but it doesn’t. And the abilities I am able to conjure are forbidden by my kind. My parents try to hide my abilities, but when the elders assign my first target, they order my parents to stay back.

Now I’m on my own, with no one to protect me, no idea what I’m doing, and no control over the powers I’m supposed to keep hidden.

I should have known this would blow up in my face.

Now my family name is ruined, and I have to fix what I’ve ripped. I’m not sure I have what it takes. Now the fate of my entire kind is on my shoulders, and I’m the only one who can make things right. But if I mess up again, it won’t just be my family that I break–our entire world will be ruined.

Musings

Reaper of Earth is fast-paced and highly entertaining. It has everything you need in a paranormal novel: a relatable protagonist, the fight between good and evil – and those caught in between – and a quest worth fighting for. If you need a quick read as exciting as any TV show, then this is the book for you.

I really liked Christina, aka Chris, the 19 years old Reaper-in-training. On her 20th birthday, she’ll be expected to become a full-fledged Reaper and be able to take on her tasks of reaping souls without the help of her parents. The only problem is, she seems to have an affinity for doing just the opposite: bringing people back to life. Which is not what any proper Reaper should be doing, especially not if she wants her parents to have any chance to ever be Elders. As a character, she’s very relatable, and her struggles are ones we’re keen on following.

The plot was really fun and interesting, though short! I felt like it cut off right when things were really going to get started. I’m looking forward to reading what happens next!
