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?  

Antoinette's Review:

Susan has had to make some big decisions for such a young age... I was so excited to see a book two on this series. Book two she is growing into this part. She has now excepted her life in this in between place. She dives into the histories and tries to figure out the missing pieces about who plays what roll in this world. Susan also realizes her feelings for Will (not going by Billy any longer) and realizes she has all these boys looking at her because she's the only female Death. Oh what could go wrong there. This is full of mystery and danger and adventures you don't expect. Loved it. Oh.... And one more thing, dragons.... Oh yes. There are dragons!! Enjoy!! This was given to me for my honest opinion... You got it. :)

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.
