Summary from Goodreads:

Here's An Excerpt!


“Reapers are part of the undead. We’re not like the stories you’ve heard across cultures,” Edon said. 

Violetta smiled. “We don’t ride on a chariot transporting souls to the underworld, or wear a black cloak, unless you want to make one.” 

“Forget everything you know about grim reapers, Ophelia. Humans have it wrong. It’s easier to believe in angels and demons, than to see what’s right in front of you. Who wants to believe the undead walk among us with beating hearts? It would frighten humans. It would probably send many to their graves faster,” Edon said.

  5. I'm actually listening to a book on audio that sounds exactly like this. I'm going to guess that they are each their own story though! I love the purple hues on the cover.
