Death’s Academy by Michael Bast

24 January, 2014 | 2 Comments

Midnight Smith has a problem—he is a Hoodie. Well, almost. He’s got to go through Death’s Academy so he can learn the ropes of how to snuff out Shorties like you and me, and how to outsmart those pesky Halos. Then he’ll get his shroud and calling and become a full fledged Reaper.

But to get into Death’s Academy, there is another difficult exam. It’s going to take everything Midnight has to prepare for the test and it still probably won’t be enough, because he’s always sucked at exams.

What he doesn’t know, is that the exam will be the least of his worries soon enough. Because when the Deaths and Halos go on their yearly retreat, the time is ripe for an old enemy to strike. The only ones left to stop the attack are Midnight and his friends—and that’s something he just can’t fail at.
