Birthright

by Jessica Ruddick
Genre: YA Supernatural
Release Date: March 20th 2017

Summary from Goodreads:

How do you live with yourself when you decide who dies?

Ava Parks would have killed for an iPod for her sixteenth birthday. Anything would have been better than coming into her birthright of being a seeker for the Grim Reaper, an arrangement made by her fallen angel ancestor in exchange for his re-admittance to heaven. And she isn’t just any seeker—she finds souls that have the potential for becoming angels and sentences them to death. A year and two souls into her role as a seeker with her conscience overflowing with guilt, Ava comes up with a plan to thwart the system. When it goes awry, she is forced to submit the name of a classmate, Cole Fowler, an ornery, rough around the edges guy who always seems to come to her rescue, whether she likes it or not. Her feelings for Cole prompt her to intervene, and she saves him from death, upsetting the Grim Reaper’s agenda.

While Ava schemes to find a way to save Cole, she learns he has some secrets of his own. She lets him believe he is protecting her, and not the other way around, until a final showdown with the Grim Reaper forces Ava to make choices Cole may never forgive.

Review

I received this copy to review from YA Bound Book Tour for my honest opinion.

This had an interesting plot I will say, I had trouble at first keeping the pace of the book however, the content that surrounded it kept my interest, it had me questioning whenever I would put it down, which I don’t so very often.

Regardless I was thrown into a new plot, new characters, a storyline that held my interest. I enjoyed it. It was new, something out of my usually comfort zone. I would recommend those that read this book to not expect what they have received before from other books, though this one held a bit of a slower pace for me to build up it was still one for “the books” to read. I plan to continue following and seeing what the author might have in store for us next, for as well all know, from many of our favorites series, sometimes it the ones that start slower than others that draw you in more.

About the Author

She lives in Virginia and is married to her college sweetheart—their first date was a fraternity toga party (and nothing inspires love like a toga, right?). When she doesn’t have her nose in a book or her hands on a keyboard, she can be found wrangling her two rambunctious sons, taming two rowdy but lovable rescue dogs, and battling the herd of dust bunnies that has taken up residence in her home.
