Reaper's Novice (Soul Collector, #1) by Cecilia Robert

Reaper's Novice (Soul Collector, #1)Reaper's Novice by Cecilia Robert
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First off I would like to say I was given a copy of Reaper's Novice for an honest review.

Secondly I LOVE the cover!

If you where given the chance to have your family back would you take it? What if it meant trading your soul for it? Turing you immortal and being owned by death for eternity?

Ana's family is falling apart, her parents are fighting all the time, and she takes it up on herself to mend the pain and put it back together. She figures a holiday would be a great place to start. Except things don't go as planed and rather then a bonding family trip she comes face to face with death himself or Ernest as he would rather be called, and saves her family in a whole other way.

Ana is what the title of the book states, she is the novice for death. For thirteen months she will takes lessons on soul collecting. After those are up if she passes her final test she will move up from novice to soul collector.

I found this story to be very interesting, there is so much more going on then blurb gives. There are many great characters that we get to meet, Ernest is not the typical Grim reaper. He lives in a castle and enjoys the dinner parties and dances of old. Zig, a collector who looks to Ernest as a father figure is suave flirt who can charm the pants off of anyone. He's a hot as hell and he knows it, a tad cocky.

Many questions are left unanswered, but that's how it is suppose to be with this series I think. We are suppose to grow with Ana has she discovers more and more information regarding who she really is and what she has been preordained to do. She has been and will be faced with many choices in this journey, will she be able to pick what is best?

I really liked this story and I can not wait to see what happens in book 2. I think this is going to be a great series.
