Unchosen Michele Vail

(The Reaper Diaries #2)
Genres: Horror, Young Adult, Fantasy




I thought the worst of my reaper training was behind me… turns out I was wrong. Dead wrong.

Molly Bartolucci has done a lot of growing up but after being accused of using illegal magic at her school for necromancers, reaper-in-training Molly is treading lightly. As the destined leader of Anubis’s Chosen, she needs to study hard, train harder, and stay out of trouble.

Uh, right.

It doesn’t help that she’s feeling more than academic about her melt-your-bones hot reaping instructor, Rath. And if her relationship drama isn’t enough to drive her over the edge, she has to deal with mother issues, nosy little sisters, suspicious friends, and an unnamed force stalking her at school.

Then her family is attacked, and her bio-dad ends up comatose in the hospital. Now, Molly has to uncover who’s trying to hurt her loved ones—and all without the help of Anubis.

Michele Vail
(The Reaper Diaries #1)
Genres: Horror, Young Adult, Fantasy



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 tobecome a reaper—and she accidentally undoes the work of another reaper, Rath. Within days, she’s shipped off to the Nekyia Academy, an elite boarding school that trains the best necromancers in the world. And her personal reaping tutor? Rath.

Life at Nekyia has its plusses. Molly has her own personal ghoul, for one. Rick follows her there out of the blue, for another…except, there’s something a little off about him. When students at the academy start to die and Rath disappears, Molly starts to wonder if anything is as it seems. Only one thing is certain—-Molly’s got an undeadly knack for finding trouble….

Unchosen was a very quick read for me, I couldn’t put it down.  It was fascinating entering the world of Unchosen and it’s the FIRST reaper story I’ve ever read so for me it was unique and refreshing.  When you have magic, reapers, necromancy, zombies, ghouls and more rolled into one book every page is intense!

This is book #2 in The Reaper Diaries series and follows 16 year old Molly and her life as a newly discovered reaper and ……. zombie maker!  There’s tons of mystery surrounding Molly and her family and the more you discover about her family, and her abilities the more in love you’ll become with this series.  I was laughing at the quick wit and humor and don’t tell anyone but I was teary-eyed as well.  

There are quite a few scenes that were written beautifully. I seriously couldn’t imagine Steven ‘freaking’ Spielberg creating a more vivid, gut wrenching scenes in my mind. 

You don’t have to read the first book, Undead before you read Unchosen but I recommend that you do.  I think the story will flow better that way but that’s my opinion. I feel that way for all series books.  I did read Undead too and OMG I can’t wait for the next installment!
