Cendall, history’s first female Grim Reaper, has until her eighteenth birthday to prove she’s worthy of the role. The only obstacle in her way are those pesky Guardian Angels who protect human souls, but Cendall is certain she can handle any Guardian who gets in her way. However, nothing could have prepared Cendall for Lacie—a soul that is protected by multiple Guardians, wanted by Demons, and, most startling of all, can see Cendall.
Cendall uses every trick in the book to try and slip past Lacie’s Guardians and collect her soul, but a Demon interferes at the last moment. In the chaos, Cendall accidently saves Lacie’s soul, along with one of the injured Guardians. Realizing Cendall fears termination for her mistake, the Guardian blackmails her with an offer she can’t refuse: in exchange for his silence, Cendall must keep Lacie’s soul safe from the Demon, until he recovers from his injuries.
Cendall agrees—with the intention of checking Lacie’s soul off her list, the instant the Guardian is healed. But as the three of them are forced to work together, Cendall begins to question why Lacie is wanted by the Demons and if her name actually belonged on Cendall’s list in the first place…
Candice Marie Burnett graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelor’s degree in Communications and Marketing. She’s loved writing from a very young age, but has only recently pursued publishing her debut novel Death Has a Daughter. She grew up in Woodhaven Michigan on a small farm with her mother, father, brother and sister. She now lives in Atlanta Georgia, with two fluffy pugs and her husband, who has an overworked, undefeated, guardian at his side.
Ever had the feeling that someone was watching over your shoulder protecting you? Or, perhaps, had a time that you sensed some invisible force was there to save your life? A time when all the facts say you shouldn’t be alive, but, by some ‘miracle,’ you are still breathing? Some call them acts of God, while others say they were rescued by their guardian angels. They are partially correct.
You see, there are many times in a human’s life when they have these near-death experiences. Sometimes people are aware of it, while, other times, it is there and gone in a blink of an eye, without them having a second thought. We call these ‘vulnerable’ moments in a soul’s existence.
During these times, a battle rages on between two forces that are invisible to the human eye. One force being those we call ‘Guardians.’ When Guardians win the battle, you hear these amazing stories of humans escaping death. When ‘my kind’ wins, there is no story to tell. Some call us ‘Angels of Death.’ I just prefer ‘Reaper,’ but if you really want to be technical, you can throw the word ‘Grim’ in front of my name.
People call us evil, but there are two sides to every story, and considering I’m history’s first female Grim Reaper, I can’t wait to begin mine.
