Winner of the 5th place in the Book Bloggers’ Novel of the Year Award 2022, The Reaper’s Quota by Sarah McKnight is currently on a blog tour with TheWriteReads. This independently-published novel is a dark, humorous fantasy. I did begin reading it for the purpose of reviewing but felt that it was not quite my cup of tea, however I feel it deserves a lot of readers and I can understand why it did very well in the BBNYA competition.
Meet Grim Reaper #2497. Behind on his work, he must complete his quota of thirty Random Deaths or face termination in the worst way. Faced with an insurmountable task and very little time to complete it, Reaper #2497 struggles to hang on to the one thing he’s not supposed to have – his humanity.
About the author:
Sarah McKnight has been writing stories since she could pick up a pencil, and it often got her in trouble during math class. After a brief stint teaching English to unruly middle schoolers in Japan, she decided she wasn’t going to put off her dream of becoming a writer any longer and set to work. With several novels in the making, she hopes to tackle issues such as anxiety, depression, and letting go of the past – with a little humor sprinkled in, too. A St. Louis native, she currently lives in Pennsylvania with her wonderful husband and three cats.
