From USA Today bestselling author Jane Redd, comes MISTRESS GRIM:
The Grim Reaper has been collecting souls of the dead for hundreds of years, but even the Master of Death has to pass on his reign. Unfortunately, his progeny is not quite ready to replace him.
Cora Grim, daughter of the Grim Reaper, is suddenly thrust into her father’s role. Leaving the Underworld on her own to bring back the dead souls, she discovers that the Master of Death neglected to tell her one thing. She can still fall in love.
I have known from the day of my seventh birthday that I was in training as the harbinger of death. For you see, my father is the Grim Reaper.
“Cora,” he told me when I was but a child of seven. “One day, you will rule the Underworld. One day, you will replace me.”
I stared up at him, my giant of a father with his broad shoulders, powerful arms, and elegant fingers with their black nails. He wore his long, dark hair tied back from his angular face so that his black, black eyes seemed like hollow things against his pale face.
How could I replace my father? In any task? He ruled the Underworld as king. He held the lives of all mortals in his grasp. He could take away the breath of the living with a single touch.
He was called Lord of Death, God of the Underworld, Hades, the Grim Reaper . . .
But to me, he was Father.
