Seventeen-year-old Wrench Gale can communicate with the dead, a secret he closely guards. Branded a social outcast amongst his classmates and targeted by a bully, Wrench dreams of a normal life where people accept him, and his ‘ability’ is a thing of the past.
But then he meets a dead man who isn’t as friendly as the others he’s encountered before.
Within minutes of their meeting, Wrench is attacked and left for dead in his own home. Upon waking, he realizes he can’t remember a thing – and that he’s not alone. Reapers—half-living, half-dead humans who can communicate and fight the dead—have arrested Wrench in connection with the attack in his home.
Both the Reapers and Wrench want to figure out what happened, but trust is a two-way street. When Wrench finds out that more than just the dead roam the streets of New York, he doesn’t have a choice but to trust the Reapers—especially when he comes to realize that not only is his best friend a Reaper, but his bully as well.
And with an execution order meant to expire in 24 hours, Wrench needs all the help he can get.
In a city filled with the dead, sorcerers, shapeshifters and other supernatural nightmares, TRINITY: THE REAPER HOUR follows Wrench through a gauntlet of trouble in a New York he’s never known, leading to a final climactic revelation that may lead to his own unraveling.
TRINITY, a 96,000-word young adult urban fantasy, is in the same vein as Cassandra Clare’s THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS series, with a supernatural touch à la Stephanie Meyer.
