Holiday Break Reading Challenge Activity #6: Waiting On Wednesday

Today's activity is a Waiting On Wednesday post. WOW is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that you can't wait for.

Goodreads Description: When seventeen-year-old Ellie starts seeing reapers - monstrous creatures who devour humans and send their souls to Hell - she finds herself on the front lines of a supernatural war between archangels and the Fallen and faced with the possible destruction of her soul.

A mysterious boy named Will reveals she is the reincarnation of an ancient warrior, the only one capable of wielding swords of angelfire to fight the reapers, and he is an immortal sworn to protect her in battle. Now that Ellie's powers have been awakened, a powerful reaper called Bastian has come forward to challenge her. He has employed a fierce assassin to eliminate her - an assassin who has already killed her once.

While balancing her dwindling social life and reaper-hunting duties, she and Will discover Bastian is searching for a dormant creature believed to be a true soul reaper. Bastian plans to use this weapon to ignite the End of Days and to destroy Ellie's soul, ending her rebirth cycle forever. Now, she must face an army of Bastian's most frightening reapers, prevent the soul reaper from consuming her soul, and uncover the secrets of her past lives - including truths that may be too frightening to remember.
It sounds like a very good book with a girl who is willing to fight. It definitely sounds like a book I would read!
I have a question: does anyone know if the official cover is the one with the silver font or the the one with the pink?


  1. Great choice! I received an ARC of this one a few days ago. I haven't started reading it yet, but it looks pretty good. I'm not sure about the official cover title color. The one I have has the pink font.

  2. I'm looking forward to this book as well. It sounds wonderful.
