Ghost Reaper Girl Vol 1 by: Akissa Saiké

Beware, evil spirits! Ghost Reaper Girl is on the case!

Chloé has dreamed of leading a glamorous life as an actress ever since she was little. But being the ripe old age of 28 might be working against her, and her spontaneous displays of violence aren’t helping either! Not all hope is lost, however–she might be perfect for the role offered by a mysterious and charming new man in her life. Can Chloé become the Ghost Reaper Girl and take down the evil spirits that have escaped from Hades?

Content Warnings: Violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, and mention of starvation and being without a home.

This book threw me off, although it is a manga, it’s formatted in a Western way so it’s meant to be read left to right/front to back. I kept catching myself trying to read right to left and having to start a page again.

The seal that keeps souls in the afterworld breaks and countless souls escape. Enter Chloe a struggling actress who apparently has the perfect body for possession. All Chloe wants to do is get hired for a new role…not spend the night fleeing countless souls bent on possessing her body.

During the night Chloe meets some colorful characters and is given the option to perform a role that could…save the world?!

This was a fun introduction to a series! I look forward to seeing where the story goes!

Growing up, Japanese and Indigenous, it was hard to find books that showcased stories and worlds that accurately portrayed Noelle’s experiences. Fantasy quickly became her main love, as you could really be anyone, anywhere. As the years went on, and technology grew, Noelle was finally able to see more stories and authors that looked and felt like her. Noelle is open to all genre’s though she can mostly be found reading own voice, fantasy, and romance.
