Hello, book lovers!! I have another review for today! This was also an ARC I’ve received and, as usual, I want you to form your own opinions, so even if I didn’t love a book, you still might love it.
One thing is undeniable about this book though, the cover is GORGEOUS!
Or at least I was until I was killed by the soul-eating demon trying to devour my best friend.
Okay, technically the demon didn’t kill me. I killed it. But apparently no good deed goes unpunished, because the next thing I knew, I was enrolled at Reaper Academy, a school that trains reapers on how to ferry souls to the afterlife and vanquish the demons who try to eat them. Being that the academy is in the afterlife, I had to leave my body behind. Hence the dead part. But it was either that or be devoured by demons myself, so really, what choice did I have?
As someone who already has experience interacting with ghosts, I figured the academy would be a breeze. The guys are hot, the classes are badass, and I’m starting to feel like I belong. But something sinister walks the halls of Reaper Academy, an evil spirit with a taste for reapers. Students are starting to go missing, and unless my new friends and I can figure out who’s behind it, we might very well be next…
If you like sassy heroines standing up to mean girls, ghostly sidekicks with a sense of humor, enemies-to-lovers slow burn romance, and coming of age books, you’ll LOVE Reaper Academy. Scroll up and grab your copy today!
PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a reverse harem series.
***I received an ARC in exchange of an honest opinion***
“ ‘You are no longer in the world of the living,’ the professor says gently, ‘but you are not quite dead, either. Reapers are a classification of spirits all on our own, able to interact with both the living and the dead. […]’ ”
Reaper Academy: Semester One is the first book in the new series by collaborating authors Jasmine Walt and Emily Goodwin.
The story is different and I enjoyed it, but I do have some issues with it. I love stories that are set in schools and academies. But the Reaper Academy had too many similarities with Hogwarts for my tastes. There was the selection, the Houses, the different colors, a “sports” championship, the House’s competition…I know the story is completely different (although there are a few other similarities I’m not mentioning so I don’t give spoilers), but these details hit way too close to home for me. They were very familiar.
That being said, I enjoyed the story and the characters, specially Addie and Maxom. Some parts were a bit basic, but I need to see how things will play out, because even with that I enjoyed reading this book. I already have a few theories and now I’m curious to how things will spam after this first book.
The juri is still out, but I believe I will enjoy the next installment and I will wait for it to form a complete opinion. I wasn’t overly impressed, but I wasn’t super disappointed either, so I’m still in the fence about it. Let’s see if Maxom will captivate me more and if Addie is truly badass.
If you like stories set in supernatural schools, with hot guys, badass classes and all that, you’ll enjoy this read.
