Undeadly (The Reaper Diaries #1) by Michele Vail
Release Date: February 28, 2012
Preorder: Amazon | Barnes & Noble
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.
This one sounds like it mixes a lot of my favorite things. First of all, Anubis -- which means Egyptian mythology! I've always been fascinated by Egypt, and I love mythology in general, so this is a double plus. Necromancy seems to be becoming popular these days (my pick last week featured it too), and it's certainly an interesting "art". Boarding schools are always fun, but a necromancer boarding school? Things should get...interesting.
Have you seen any other books featuring necromancy? What are you waiting on this week?
