The Reaper's Daughter
I’ve always felt like an average girl... except for my strange relationship with death. You could say I like to court it.
Whether I’m soaring through the air as a flyer for Specter University’s cheer squad or speeding down the steepest mountain with only grace and balance keeping me from an icy end, I’ve always needed to feel a rush. But now Death is courting me—in more ways than one.
First, there’s Rishi, a rogue death deity who has a penchant for annoying me nearly to my grave and whose intense gaze has the power to see right through me. Then there’s Hades, who I’d rather had stayed just a myth. Now that he knows I exist, he’s not going to leave me alone until I meet the same end as my mother.
Oh yeah, did I forget to mention her? I spent my whole life thinking she had died when I was a baby, but now I’ve found out she’s much more than dead.
Fifty years ago, Hades banished my mother from the underworld and took away her ability to cross over souls—souls that have wandered lost through the world ever since. Now she wants me to clean up the mess. You may have heard of her before...
They call her the Grim Reaper.
About K.M. Randall (Rochester, New York Author)
Coming from a background that includes a treasonous journalist ancestor, a poem-writing grandfather with a penchant for vampire lore, and a mother whose past inspires wrenching memoir passages, it’s no surprise the written word runs deep within Randall’s veins. So when a Faerie circle never ended up stealing her away to another world, she decided to create her own. She started when she was six years old with a poem about a merry fairy, segueing into a passionate affair with the fantastical.
She is the author of The Reaper’s Daughter, a YA Paranormal novel, and the forthcoming Dreamer Saga quartet, an epic fantasy series. When Randall isn’t writing her next novel and being a mommy to a lively little boy, she is busy at work serving as a freelance editor and writer.
Randall holds a master’s degree in journalism from Syracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School of Communications and a bachelor's degree in English-Literature from Nazareth College of Rochester. She lives in Upstate New York’s Finger Lakes region with her husband, their energetic and imaginative little boy, a crazy golden doodle named Luna, and a stubborn Maltese mix named Wookie.
