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.This review was completed by our staff reviewer, Camille Morales: When I first started reading this book, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I read it every time I got the chance.This book is really, really good, especially for a debut novel. I loved the characters, except for her dad. I don’t know what is with him, but I really, really didn’t like him, but the rest of the characters were fun to read about.I loved the plot, and the way it was written. There was always action, and you wanted to figure out what Ellie was, and why she had so many awesome powers. It is all answered, thank goodness. Really good book, I recommend it to everyone! I just found out that this is the first in a three-book series, and I can’t wait to read the next one! It comes out 2012.
