Soul Taken (eBook)
Winner of the 2022 Connecticut Author Project for Young Adult Fiction
For this teen reaper, collecting souls is effortless, but when she’s forced to play human, it becomes dangerous.
Maggie is the best Collector in the After, and she knows it. But she’s more interested in moving up to a coveted position on the elite Guard—the protectors of humanity. When she accepts an important mission with the Guard, it’s an opportunity to show off her skills. But the mission goes awry, and Maggie finds herself stuck inside a human body with no way out.
It should be a relatively simple fix: find the displaced soul, return to her normal afterlife. But Maggie only has a week before the body inherits an ancestral line of powers that will lock Maggie into the body...forever. Memories from a forgotten past assail her as she frantically searches for the soul, making her doubt her abilities. It’s not long before she uncovers a shocking secret, linking her to a terrifying enemy who wants Maggie to recall her corrupt past.
Maggie always thought she was on the good side, humanity’s side. But what if she’s the bad guy?
