When seventeen-year-old Ellie starts seeing reapers - monstrous creatures who devour humans and send their souls to Hell - she finds herself on the front lines of a supernatural war between archangels and the Fallen and faced with the possible destruction of her soul.

A mysterious boy named Will reveals she is the reincarnation of an ancient warrior, the only one capable of wielding swords of angelfire to fight the reapers, and he is an immortal sworn to protect her in battle. Now that Ellie's powers have been awakened, a powerful reaper called Bastian has come forward to challenge her. He has employed a fierce assassin to eliminate her - an assassin who has already killed her once.

While balancing her dwindling social life and reaper-hunting duties, she and Will discover Bastian is searching for a dormant creature believed to be a true soul reaper. Bastian plans to use this weapon to ignite the End of Days and to destroy Ellie's soul, ending her rebirth cycle forever. Now, she must face an army of Bastian's most frightening reapers, prevent the soul reaper from consuming her soul, and uncover the secrets of her past lives - including truths that may be too frightening to remember.

Meet Us At The Crossroads Blog Tour - Day 16

What was it about Anastasia Romanov’s story that made you want to write your own story about it?

I have always been drawn to the Romanov story because it’s just so darn tragic. Anastasia was so filled with promise – young and pretty and smart and funny and snarky and witty. And she was murdered before she had an opportunity to reach her adult potential – which I’m sure would have been amazing. She died because of politics, because of people who wanted to get rid of her parents. (obviously that’s an over-simplification, but it’s part of the truth) And it’s just so horribly sad. I totally understand why so many people over the years just couldn’t believe that she was really dead. And I wanted to pay homage to her here – even though I’ve created some definite fictions inside the historically accurate parts. If anyone could survive being held captive in a witch’s hut, I think Anastasia could definitely do it!

What are 3 of your favorite books or series? 

I am a voracious reader. I can’t get through a day without reading something. So I really do have more than three favorites. But if I can be so bold as to alter your question a bit, three of my current favorite books have been Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games series (because it is total awesomeness in plotting, character development and romance); Maggie Stiefvater’s Shiver and Linger (because the werewolf nooky is beyond compare and they are deeply romantic books); and my friend Lauren Strasnick’s Nothing Like You -which is out in paperback now and which has the funniest book trailer I’ve ever seen except maybe Libba Bray’s book trailer for Going Bovine where she dresses up the cow costume, which is hysterical – ( because Nothing Like You’s ending makes me cry every time I read it. Beyond those, if I was absolutely pressed, my favorite piece of American lit is F.Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, which just blows me away at how it manages to stay fresh and contemporary in its view of the corruption of the American Dream.
