Release date: 5th December 2012
17- year- old Ana Maria Tei’s life has always been perfect: loving parents, good grades, and a future so bright it outshone the sun. But now words like “separation” and “divorce” are sending her world plummeting to hell. Determined to keep her family intact, Ana plans a family-bonding trip from Vienna to Tuscany. Except fate has other plans. Ana’s parents and siblings are killed in a car accident on their way to pick Ana up from school.
Enter Grim, aka Ernest. He promises to relinquish the four souls if Ana agrees to trade her soul for theirs and serve a lifetime as his novice. In order for Ana to graduate from her Reaper’s Novice station to a Soul Collector graduate, Grim puts her to test. To her horror, she finds out becoming a Reaper’s Novice didn’t happen by chance. It was preordained, and she is forced to make a choice: save her family’s souls or come to terms with who she really is and complete the task set for her.
5 of 5 Reapers Novice
Reaper's Novice started out as a Novella and grew into a book and I have to say that I was glad when Cecilia did that. The Novella left me wanting more and more and when I found out she was going to do a full length book with it I jumped up and down like a crazy reader I am.
In Reaper's Novice we meet Ana who has a loving family. She loves school and plays the violin. She is very talented in many ways. Then one day she over hears the ugliness and truth of what is to become of her family. See she hears her parents talking about divorce and separating but Ana is determined to keep her family together. So she hatches a plan for them to take a trip to Tuscany and spend some much needed family time together. Only when the times comes for them to meet there is an accident and she loses all of her family.
Still in shock and reeling from the death of her parents and siblings Ana meets Ernest. Ernest seems to know a lot about her situation and when he tells Ana there is a way to save her family she is all ears. Ernest tells her he will release their souls if Ana gives him her soul and becomes a reapers novice. Ana is not sure what to but she knows she misses her family and wants them back. What is a girl to do with that kind of an offer? Can she reuse it? Will she refuse it? What is Ernest not telling her about herself? When the secrets and lies clear Ana will have to decide what to do and her decision is not one without consequences to all.
