Vy Black has been cursed from the beginning. Even from the time of his birth, his hometown has originated a deadly plague that kills entire populations, destroying the place and the people he has come to love. Now, in order to save the world, he must enter the Reaper Trials to convince the Dark One why humanity should be saved from extinction. The Reaper Trials is R.T. Donlon's sophomore novel--a look into the heart of humanity's deepest fears, a hero willing to risk his life for the sake of the world, and the ability to overcome even the worst obstacles, even when survival is not an option. The Reaper Trials is assuredly a gritty story with even grittier results. Some content in this novel may not be suitable for children under 13 years of age.
