Undeadly (The Reaper Diaries, #1)
Undeadly by Michele Vail 

November 20th 2012


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....

   It was creep quiet. All I could hear was the rapid beat of my heart, which seemed t have lodged in my ears. The hand gripping Myra's chains was getting sweaty-- at least I hoped it was sweat. Maybe it was ectoplasm. Belch. 

   Irina got to the door first, and opened it slowly, peering into the room. Then she reached inside and flipped on a light. We all went through, and Irina closed the door behind us. 

   The room was full of boxes and tarp-warped paintings. There was a hearth on the far wall that looked as though it had never been used. And there wasn't any furniture, either. 

  "Where?" demanded Irina. 

   "The large painting over there," said Myra, pointing to a huge rectangle that had been loosely covered wiht a white drop cloth. 

    I was feeling creeped out. I didn't like being in someone's house, sneaking around and stealing. And I was bummed that I had to lie to my friends, and to Rick. A girl could only do so much wrong during one day. My conscience was being stabbed by too many guilt knives.
