"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m featuring Michelle Vail's debut novel Undeadly. This book will be the first in a series called The Reaper Diaries.
Author: Michele Vail
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Release Date: November 20, 2012
The day I turned 16, my boyfriend-to-be died. I brought him back to life. Then things got a little weird...
Molly Bartolucci wants to blend in, date hottie Rick and keep her zombie-raising abilities on the down-low. Then the god Anubis chooses her to become a reaper—and she accidentally undoes the work of another reaper, Rath.
Within days, she’s shipped off to the Nekyia Academy, an elite school that trains the best necromancers in the world. And her personal reaping tutor? Rath. Who seems to hate her guts.
Rath will be watching closely to be sure she completes her first assignment-reaping Rick, the boy who should have died. The boy she still wants to be with.
To make matters worse, students at the academy start turning up catatonic, and accusations fly—against Molly. The only way out of this mess? To go through hell. Literally.
Why I’m excited: I actually haven't heard anything about this book. I was looking through Goodreads for more books to add to my Debut-Author-Challenge list, and came across this one in my recommendations. Reading the description it sounds like it's going to be a great book I mean, who doesn't love a good reaper story. And since it is part of the DAC 2012 list, I will have to get myself a copy when it comes out :).
What are you looking forward to this week?
