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 boarding school that trains the best necromancers in the world. And her personal reaping tutor? Rath.
Life at Nekyia has its plusses. Molly has her own personal ghoul, for one. Rick follows her there out of the blue, for another...except, there's something a little off about him. When students at the academy start to die and Rath disappears, Molly starts to wonder if anything is as it seems. Only one thing is certain—-Molly's got an undeadly knack for finding trouble....
This book had a lot of stuff going on. There's 'zombies', gods, reapers, necromancers, boarding school and so much more that I never found myself bored. And didn't I just say in one of my latest reviews that I wanted to read more about YA books set in boarding school? MY ANSWER IS THIS BABY RIGHT HERE. I love the way the author described the boarding school - please I wanna go there so bad!!
I loved Rath. He's one of the latest boys to be added in my 'book boyfriends' list. Hehe. Whenever we don't read about him, I found myself impatiently waiting until he's on the scene again because I didn't want to part with him. My only criticism would be that I think he should have been in the book longer and we should have been able to see and understand him more because by the end, you don't really find out much about him. I'm really hoping in the next book we get lots of Rath time ;D
There was this big twist throughout the book and I knew immediately that it was that. But it still kinda shocked me LOL.
If you're looking for a fun, light paranormal romance, then I think you should definitely read UNDEADLY. I for one can't wait for the sequel because I can't wait to be with the characters again! (Well..except for Molly, we can leave her out :P)
