My Sister’s Reaper
Sixteen-year-old Zadie’s first mistake was telling the boy she liked she could bring her dead sister back to life. Her second mistake was actually doing it.
When Zadie accidentally messes with the Reaper’s Rite that should have claimed her sister Mara, things go horribly wrong. Mara isn’t the same anymore—Zadie isn’t even sure she’s completely human, and to top it off, a Reaper is determined to collect Mara’s soul no matter what. Now Zadie must figure out how to defeat her sister’s Reaper, or let Mara die … this time for good.
My Sister’s Reaper is a very good YA paranormal fantasy. Ever since Zadie was a little girl, she could make things happen. She had no idea how she did it, but that ability existed in her. So when her sister, Mara, gets hit by a bus and is in a coma, Zadie decides that maybe she can bring her out of it. Be careful what you wish for! Zadie is successful, but she also calls out the wrath of the Reaper for interrupting his rite.
Love the characters in this book! My favorite is Lilura, the neighborhood witchlady, who ends up helping Zadie know who she and Mara really are. Zadie is a wonderful heroine. Though she’s just a typical teenager, she takes on the tasks she needs to to save her sister from the Reaper. All of the characters are well-written and believable.
The plot moves quickly and is exciting to follow. Not knowing what is going to happen next keeps you on the edge of your seat. This is a fast read since it keeps you interested. There’s not a dull point or a lull in the action that makes you want to take a break from it.
I recommend this book to everyone who likes paranormal fantasy books.
