#1 in the Urban Fantasy Charts

What’s #1 in the Urban Fantasy Charts?

Well, it seems last week’s #1 Releasing the Gods is still top of the charts – check out the overview here.

But the Teen & Young Adult Paranormal & Urban Fantasy chart has done some rearranging in the last seven days, just not for the top spot. #3 was an academy book that we haven’t seen yet in this feature but it was a little bit generic. If it weren’t for the eye-grabbing and intriguing #5, it might have ended up in this post.

So here’s what we’ve got nearing the top of the charts this week:



Reaper Academy by Jasmine Walt and Emily Goodwin

“Hey there. I’m Addison Blake. Orphan, college student, and amateur ghost whisperer.

Or at least I was until I was killed by the soul-eating demon trying to devour my best friend.

Okay, technically the demon didn’t kill me. I killed it. But apparently no good deed goes unpunished, because the next thing I knew, I was enrolled at Reaper Academy, a school that trains reapers on how to ferry souls to the afterlife and vanquish the demons who try to eat them. Being that the academy is in the afterlife, I had to leave my body behind. Hence the dead part. But it was either that or be devoured by demons myself, so really, what choice did I have?

As someone who already has experience interacting with ghosts, I figured the academy would be a breeze. The guys are hot, the classes are badass, and I’m starting to feel like I belong. But something sinister walks the halls of Reaper Academy, an evil spirit with a taste for reapers. Students are starting to go missing, and unless my new friends and I can figure out who’s behind it, we might very well be next…”

The cover really grabbed me for this one but then the title clinched the deal. Have you read a reaper academy book before? Because I haven’t even heard of them!

The whole “ultimate purpose after death” for a character is a real heart-breaking plot line (see Julie Hall’s Huntress or Hear Me Cry by Amanda J. Evans for some serious tear-jerkers). Even though they’re about to go on to have an amazing adventure, the protagonists are still dead.

Still, this book really stands out and it’s a refreshing new take on the academy genre. Secretly I’m wondering if she actually uses that scythe to kick some demon ass or if it’s all for show.

Here’s the buy link that’ll send you straight to Amazon.

Thanks for reading!

  1. I got an arc for this and it was excellent. I can confim kickassery with the scythes.
    I recently lost a family member and had to put it down a few times because the whole death thing got to me a bit but i basically love all of Jasmine’s books too, cool mythology various series and a steampunky magic world series. My favourite by far is her Nia Rivers series

    1. Awesome! I already bought it so I’m popping it on the TBR pile to read later!
      I’m so sorry to hear that, sending best wishes to you and your family ❤
      I'll have to look at her other books too with a recommendation like that 😀
