Publisher's Summary

Just like all little girls, I hoped I was special and that one day my powers would be revealed. My parents would be bewildered, my friends would equally worship and envy me, and my bullies would run away in terror! Nothing happened when I turned 10. I didn't grow wings at 12, still wasn't able to make things move with my mind at 14, and at 16, I was already too old to believe in such nonsense. Well, what do you think happened the day I turned 18? I got the confirmation that I was only human. In the mail! Oh, and also an invitation to apply to the Grim Reaper Academy. Because, apparently, humans can be Grim Reapers, too.

Fast forward to day one, semester one, year one. There's a test! No one told me I'd have to take a test to enter! But there are only 22 Reapers in the world, the competition is tough, so I guess it makes sense? If I pass, then I will be sorted according to what kind of Death I'll make if I survive the rigors of the Academy.

But this is my chance, dammit! This is what I've been waiting for all my life! Okay, so I'm not a princess, or a mermaid, or Sailor Moon. But I can be a Grim Reaper one day. I'll take it!

Contains mature themes.

Bully Romance

If attempted murder, sexual harassment and abuse turn you on this is for you. Not my thing 👎🏼

… okay so far

But a reverse harem disclaimer would have been cool… still listening tho. I like the paranormal aspect of the book and the world building. The bullying seems little too intense and doesn’t really make sense but maybe we’ll find out why she’s been targeted other than being human.

Surviving year one

I really did enjoy the book. I have bout year two in hope it gets better.
My only issue is the bullying. WHY is not addressed?! The bullies really should be held accountable and it stresses me that it continues and no repercussions....

WOW INTENSE

Wow intense and action packed. How this young girl adapts is a testament to her suffering at the hand of her mean father. This girl has guts and l found this a very satisfying story. l have already purchased book 2 as l am so caught up in her story. Recommended

Have to get Book 2!

Slow burn, Academy, Bully romance. I was uncertain if I would like this but i ended up Loving this book and didn't want to stop Listening/reading (I also downloaded the book lol) the concept was a little more unique then some of the other academy ones out there right now.

Nothing quite like it

A really great read. A unique story unlike anything else. A little bit compelling, a little bit sexy. More than one reaper who knew?
