The Reapers are the Angel is one of those books that people aren't going to expect, and that many otherwise avid horror fans might end up over looking. A gothic southern tale of a girl who lives alone after the zombie uprising it does for zombies what Interview with a Vampire did for vampires.
Temple is barely a teenager, left to survive in a failing world. She's illiterate, had never know family or a world without zombies yet she's searching the world for something she can't put a name to. Despite her very different way of thinking she's easily an Everyman for a wide swath of readers who find this book.
Intensely strange, deeply emotional this is a zombie tale not to be missed, or underestimated in the sea of knock off biohorror apocalypse books. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, but readers should beware that Bell's intoxicating tale will pull you in and make it very hard to let go. An absolute must have for modern horror collections.
Contains: language, violence, attempted rape, sex
