Death himself offers her a deal: he'd give her back her life, if she'd agree to participate in his "experiment". Become one of his Soldiers, charged with helping or hindering the balance of life, and she'd have powers beyond her imagination. She just had to take the deal and leave her eternal peace. So she took it. Of course she did. She was dead, she wasn't insane.
However, getting her life back wasn't quite the

cultivating her powers in the form of the Reviled, people who will do
anything to rid the earth of those who took Death's deal.

rampage through her home town, January has no choice but to work with
Noah and other Soldiers like her to find a way to stop it before it
destroys her and everyone she loves (GoodReads)
This first book in the new Grim's Soldiers Series by Kait Wall is due out in Jan 2014! I like the tone of the blurb. The Reviled has a weird cover, but it fits right in with my fall paranormal/fantasy reading spree. What are you "waiting on" This week? Thanks as always to Jill at Breaking the Spine for hosting WoW!
