Swordof Deaths

Sword of Deaths

Susan Sarnio made a choice, and will spend the rest of her life as the only female Death. Last year she was bullied and ostracized. Now, to her complete bewilderment, four Deaths vie for her affection. Yet, something is terribly wrong at the College of Deaths. When a ship carrying scythe metal is attacked, many blame the newly-freed Elementals, but Susan knows the Elementals are innocent.

Shadows from the distant past come to light. Dragons circle the horizon, blood spills, and nothing is what it seems. Susan and her friends struggle to stop a war. They search for the fabled First Scythe, hoping to sway the balance, but who is the true enemy?  

Sue Ann's Review:

WOW WOW WOW Christopher just doesn't cease to amaze me!!!

I will start by saying - if you have NOT read School of Deaths (which is the 1st book in The Scythe Wielder's Secret Book series) you really need to read it before you read the Sword of Deaths!!!! 

The Sword of Deaths picks up right where School of Deaths left off. We continue on with the story of Suzie, Billy and Frank as deaths and their training. It's hard to write much about this story without giving it all away. BUT - I will say this, these books are so captivating, that you will find it hard to stop reading until you read the end. 

I will warn you - that there is a cliff hanger at the end of this book and you will end up like me - patiently (yeah right) waiting for the final volume of the series to be available. (Daughter of Deaths) I was given a copy of this book for an honest review.

Thrust into a world of men, can a timid girl find bravery as the first female Death?

Thirteen-year-old Suzie Sarnio always believed the Grim Reaper was a fairy tale image of a skeleton with a scythe. Now, forced to enter the College of Deaths, she finds herself training to bring souls from the Living World to the Hereafter. The task is demanding enough, but as the only female in the all-male College, she quickly becomes a target. Attacked by both classmates and strangers, Suzie is alone in a world where even her teachers want her to fail.

Scythes hungry for souls, Deaths who enslave a race of mysterious magicians, and echoes of an ancient war with Dragons.

As her year progresses, Suzie suspects her presence isn't an accident. She uncovers a plot to overthrow the World of Deaths. Now she must also discover the reason she's been brought there: the first female Death in a million years.
