Wasp’s job is simple. Hunt ghosts. And every year she has to fight to remain Archivist. Desperate and alone, she strikes a bargain with the ghost of a supersoldier. She will go with him on his underworld hunt for the long-long ghost of his partner and in exchange she will find out more about his pre-apocalyptic world than any Archivist before her. And there is much to know. After all, Archivists are marked from birth to do the holy work of a goddess. They’re chosen. They’re special. Or so they’ve been told for four hundred years.

Archivist Wasp fears she is not the chosen one, that she won’t survive the trip to the underworld, that the brutal life she has escaped might be better than where she is going. There is only one way to find out.




Archivist Wasp was a different take on a Grim Reaper story. I really liked Wasp and her dedication to making sure the ghosts are treated with respect. For the most part the story was incredibly well written, and the plot was fantastic. It was a very interesting book and I’m not really sure how you would classify it. It’s kind of Dystopian but also paranormal, and science fiction even. It was quite honestly fantastically original.

Wasp and ‘the ghost’ went on a fantastic adventure and it made Wasp really evaluate what she was doing. It also provided her alot of answers to be able to change her life. It was interesting to watch the way the whole town changed after some secrets were exposed and it allowed Wasp and her sisters the ability to choose their own path. This book had a kind of mystical, ethereal quality to it that was tempered by bouts of violence. Overall I would give it 3.5 out of 5 stars. 03half

3.5/5 – A Great Read, Well-Written
