The Reaper’s Bride
Urban Fantasy – 52,000 words Book One of The Reaper Chronicles Status: Complete
It’s not an easy task ushering souls to the afterlife – just ask James the Reaper. When he stumbles upon 83-year-old Molly at a funeral, he realizes she has the uncanny ability to see into the secret world of reaping souls.
James must convince Molly of her talent and entice her to join him as a Reaping Recruit. If he thinks this task is without its challenges, he’s sorely mistaken. Molly’s best friend, Mildred, wants in too. Unlike Molly, Mildred is a sharp-tongued, politically incorrect senior who lacks the empathy and tact to make it as a successful Reaping Recruit.
But with Molly’s natural abilities at guiding souls, James is determined to add her to his growing network of Recruits – even if this means taking on Mildred. Now he must ensure that Mildred fulfills her reaping contract without further angering the Gods and losing control of his Reaping Empire.
Although Mildred seems hell-bent on making mischief for James, Molly isn’t so innocent herself. She’ll need to outwit both James and Mildred if she’s to get what she truly wants.
A suave reaper, two cantankerous elderly ladies and a melange of dead souls make up the quirky cast of The Reaper’s Bride.
