Thea Atkinson - Reaper’s Redemption 
A grim reaper’s next fare might be her last. 

Rebecca Hamilton - Leaves Like Magic 
A young witch joins forces with a shapeshifting ally in a race against the clock to save her best friend from vampires.






There are two reasons that I wanted to read this Anthology...One, I love YA Paranormal and you just can't beat a good YA Anthology. And two, it's free and who doesn't like free?....
