Keeper Vs Reaper
Graveyard Guardians book #1
By Jennifer Malone Wright
Synopsis from Goodreads:
When her father died, Lucy Mae Estmond inherited the family business. She has known all of her life that she would be in line to watch over the souls of the recently passed, keeping them safe from the Reapers.
The soul eating Reapers have been a plague upon the Earth, stealing souls and leaving the Keepers as the only thing that stands between Heaven and Hell. The factions despise each other and have warred for generations.
Then Lucy discovers an ancient legend predicting the arrival of the Chosen One, destined to bring forth an end to the Reapers. The surprises continue when she realizes she is that person. For Lucy, being the Chosen One doesn’t change much. Fighting Reapers is just another day in the life of a Keeper.
When she meets Jack Walker, they both realize they have an insane, mutual attraction. Too bad that he’s been sent to prevent the prophecy from coming true. His only mission: to kill the Chosen One.
He was a Reaper a soul sucker from the highest order sent to kill the Chosen One. She was a Keeper inherited a graveyard and souls to protect.
So I was excited for this book I love paranormal books and I liked how it had the whole paranormal Romeo and Juliet thing going on for it. Plus the cover was beautiful.
So Jack was sent to kill Lucy who recently lost her father and inherited the family graveyard. While Reapers have been down there before to try and suck up the souls of the dead they were usually easily ran off because of how many Keepers where in the Estmond family. When Jack got orders to kill The Chosen One who happens to be Lucy he couldn’t do it. He even went so far as to saving her from another Reaper trying to get the job done. Now other Reapers are coming to get her. Its a whole different game and it is one Jack tries to stay away from but when it comes down to it will he choose his strange strong attraction for Lucy or the family legacy?
Lots of action, romance, humor and sarcasm.
I liked this book and didn’t put it down till I finished it. I’ll be picking up the next book in this series.
