An urban fantasy, Shadow of the Reapers is set in modern America, 25 years after The Rift, a hushed-up government operation that unleashed a growing horde of undead mutants, called Anathema, on an unknowing and unseeing public. Standing between the innocents and oblivion are the Reapers, trained fighters with the rare ability to see Anathema before it’s too late.
Shadow of the Reapers revolves around the lives of two young women, Grace Arch and Sylis Quick, aka Shadow. Grace is the orphaned survivor of an Anathema attack, raised and trained since she was a child in the Iris Academy, a training school for Reapers. Shadow is a more experienced Reaper, working alone and trying to forget a secret that matches her name. Grace, too, carries a secret that even she isn’t aware of. Soon, the two become entangled in a web of deceit and power, and despite their differences, must team up when a threat greater than either of them could imagine rises up and tries to eliminate them both.
Cruise the night with Grace and Shadow as they tell their tale in alternating first-person narratives, taking on Anathemas known as Riven and Bales. With flying feet and flying fists, sharp weapons and even sharper wit, the two are fast, efficient and deadly. But, are they as strong as they think they are…or will need to be?
