Waiting on Wednesday #67 * Undeadly by Michelle Vail

Undeadly
(The Reaper Diaries #1)
by Michelle Vail

Publication Date: November 20th, 2012
Publisher: Harlequin Teen

The day I turned 16, my boyfriend-to-be died. I brought him back to life. Then things got a little weird...

Molly Bartolucci wants to blend in, date hottie Rick and keep her zombie-raising abilities on the down-low. Then the god Anubis chooses her to become a reaper—and she accidentally undoes the work of another reaper, Rath.

Within days, she’s shipped off to the Nekyia Academy, an elite school that trains the best necromancers in the world. And her personal reaping tutor? Rath. Who seems to hate her guts.

Rath will be watching closely to be sure she completes her first assignment-reaping Rick, the boy who should have died. The boy she still wants to be with.

To make matters worse, students at the academy start turning up catatonic, and accusations fly—against Molly. The only way out of this mess? To go through hell. Literally. (Goodreads)

I love, love, LOVE books that have necromancers as the main character. They are SO interesting! That, and the fact that Harlequin Teen has some pretty awesome books, has me really excited to get my hands on Undeadly.

I. Can't. Wait!

What are you Waiting on this week???


**"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine,

  7. I haven't heard of this one! I don't think I knew what necromacers were before YA and Undeadly sounds interesting. I agree about Harlequin having awesome books, hopefully this one is the same!

  8. I've not read a necromancer book, as they've never seemed like my type of "thing", but this DOES sound really good. I will be adding it to my GR for sure :-) Great pick!

  11. Oh my god!! Necromancers, you say? My last necromancer related read was ages ago: Hold Me Closer, Necromancer from Henry Holt and it was very satisfying. This sounds so good! Adding it to my list! Great pick!

  12. I am LOVING the sound of this one Christy! I'm a huge fan of antagonistic relationships, and clearly we're going to have that with Rath. Complete win:) Why must November be so far away?

  13. I've seen this one moving around quite a bit, and I'm really curious about it, too. :) Thanks for sharing, Christy, and I hope you get to read it soon!
