TBR Thursdays (9)The Death Catchers

To be Read Thursday meme is hosted by Drea which was inspired by Waiting on Wednesday by Breaking the Spine

TBR Thursday highlights all those book that are already about (whether you own them or not) that you're dying to ready but haven't had the chance yet. This can some old books, some new books, and some that are in between but they have to be books that you want/hope to read and review!

I was doing my reading rounds and landed at Confessions of Bookaholic by Jessica where the names like Morgan le Fay and Arthur caught my attention. '☺ I knew I couldn't pass this up even if I still have to continue Susan Cooper's The Dark is Rising Series, which also has an Arthurian feel meshed into her stories. I think that series will  qualify in Xpresso Reads Dusty Reads section.   

From Goodreads:
On her fourteenth Halloween, Lizzy Mortimer sees her first death-specter.

Confused at first, Lizzy soon learns from her grandmother Bizzy that as Death Catchers, they must prevent fate from taking its course when an unjust death is planned-a mission that has been passed down from their ancestor, Morgan le Fay. Only, Lizzy doesn't expect one of her first cases to land her in the middle of a feud older than time between Morgan le Fay and her sister Vivienne le Mort. Vivienne hopes to hasten the end of the world by preventing Lizzy from saving King Arthur's last descendant-humanity's greatest hope for survival. It's up to Lizzy, as Morgan's earthly advocate, to outwit fate before it's too late.

With its unique spin on Arthurian legend, this fresh, smartly written story will stand out in the paranormal genre.
