COVER REVEAL: The Reapers by Ali Winters || EXCERPT!!

Hello there! How are you?
Happy first of May!!!! Eeeee #BirthdayMonth
Today I'm going to be revealing the cover of The Reapers by _____. My favourite type of blog post- aside from a review- probably has to be cover reveals. Like all I need is a huge curtain and boom. 
Don't let my odd little intros stop you from enjoying/continuing to read this post (I'm being myself and tend to get giddy when I post- it's my euphoria)

Without further ado and before I ramble myself into a huge motivational post, let's begin!

Goodreads blurb:
The balance of life and death must be kept at all costs.

Having been a reaper as long as she can remember, Nivian knows that what she does is essential in maintaining balance. After being assigned to a rushed mark she finds that there is more to this human than any other she has encountered.

Kain had been living an ordinary life without a second thought until he meets Nivian who turns his world upside down. He is thrust into a world of hunters and reapers. The keepers of life and death have been feuding for centuries over a reason no one can even remember.

With Kain having been marked for reaping, and Nivian being hunted, they forge a friendship and together must find the truth in order to keep balance in check. Wrong choices could destroy everything. As they journey they discover hidden histories, powers, and lies and truths that have been spun since the beginning of time. The consequence of failure, unimaginable.

Title: The Reapers
Author: Ali Winters 
Genre: YA Fantasy
Expected Release Date: May 31, 2015
Hosted by: Lady Amber's Tours


It gives me great pleasure to reveal the STUNNING cover of The Reapers to you *lifts curtain*
Holy wow, yes? When I first received this material, I gazed at it for a long while. Maybe it's because I have an undying obsession with stars and the galaxy (hey, it says so in my Twitter bio! || Apologies, didn't mean to self-promote there.) Maybe it's because of the wonderful colours. Maybe it's because IT IS AN AMAZING COVER WITH AN AMAZING STORY INSIDE IT AND THE COVER ARTIST NEEDS A THOUSAND HUGS.  *drops mic*

Four very important points that need to be made here:
  • Ali Winters is an awesome name
  • She grew up in the North West. Hehe someone tag Kimye into a shared post
  • Nika and Tedward are AMAZING names
  • Nivian (the protagonist in the novel) is a killer name! Super original! Have you ever heard of the name Nivian?
Excerpt

Nivian jumped over the edge of the bridge, landing with a soft tap on the surface of the water. She reached down, pulled the soul of the driver up by the collar of his shirt, and stood him up next to her on top of the water. She took the drivers hand palm up in hers, waving her other hand over his. She pinched the air and pulled, lifting up and exposing his life string, his wide eyes were hypnotized by the glowing string. She grabbed the scythe strapped to her back and swung. With a slow deliberate movement she sliced the human’s thread. The light formed a ball and hovered as she pulled out the small pocket watch. The life light floated down to the watch and sunk into it, disappearing. With a snap, she closed the watch and returned it to her pocket.
“You really shouldn’t drink and drive; you could have seriously hurt someone,” she said giving him an apathetic look. He gaped at her, mouth opening and closing like a fish. “Yes, you really are dead.” She confirmed as she started to turn away.
“Are you … the devil?” he managed to sputter.
“No, of course not. I am just the natural order of things,” she said, briefly looking back at him. “Wait here; your spirit counselor will be here soon for you to guide you to your afterlife. I have other jobs tonight,” She turned, walking away as she pulled her hood back up over her head and vanished.
