I thought the worst of my reaper training was behind me… turns out I was wrong. Dead wrong.

Molly Bartolucci has done a lot of growing up but after being accused of using illegal magic at her school for necromancers, reaper-in-training Molly is treading lightly. As the destined leader of Anubis’s Chosen, she needs to study hard, train harder, and stay out of trouble.

Uh, right.

It doesn’t help that she’s feeling more than academic about her melt-your-bones hot reaping instructor, Rath. And if her relationship drama isn’t enough to drive her over the edge, she has to deal with mother issues, nosy little sisters, suspicious friends, and an unnamed force stalking her at school.

Then her family is attacked, and her bio-dad ends up comatose in the hospital. Now, Molly has to uncover who’s trying to hurt her loved ones—and all without the help of Anubis.

 I've never understood why someone (or something) can't just tap you on the shoulder and say, "Look, the apocalypse will be here on Tuesday.  You might want to get a helmet and a weapon.  Tell your friends."


I'm unsure of how I really feel about Unchosen.  It was good and I'm glad I got a chance to read it but it definitely had a middle book feel to it.  At times it felt rushed and there were parts that in my opinion could have used more depth but were barely talked about.  Especially Molly and Rath's relationship, it felt rather lacking of emotion.  

Aside from that it was a good read.  Molly is told early on that there will be a competition to decide who will be The Champion of Anubis, this upsets Molly for obvious reasons since she is the champion according to Anubis himself.  While training she loses touch with her friends, which I was sad to see happen, I really wish they could be more of a team.  Henry her ghoul also hints that it's important to find a specific book, Anubis and the Seventh Warrior, which evidently holds clues to Molly's family secrets.  There is also somebody that's trying to get to Molly, she gets attacked several times and the person even goes after her bio-dad and family.  All of this crap goes down and Anubis is nowhere to be found, what good is having a god for a dad if you can't count on him to help in battle?!  There is a crazy discovery at the end of the book and a cliffhanger that leaves you wondering what is going to happen.  Like I said I did enjoy reading the book but it left a lot of ends untied, hence the middle book feeling.  I predict the final book being AMAZING!
Keep calm ... and carry your scythe.

* I received an ARC ebook of Unchosen in exchange for an honest review.  In no way does that effect my thoughts or opinions.  I did not get paid in any way for this review. 

*I would like to thank Michele Vail and The Fantastic Flying Book Club for giving me the chance to read, review, and be a part of this tour!

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....
