Unchosen (Reaper Diaries #2) by Michele Vail: Character Interview
CHARACTER INTERVIEW WITH RATH
Rath appeared in UNDEADLY, Book 1 in The Reaper Diaries. He becomes the instructor for reaper-in-training Molly, and always has her back. In UNCHOSEN, his relationship with Molly heats up … just as Molly’s life becomes more complicated and dangerous.
My parents died when I was young, and I was raised by my older brother. I’d barely finished my first year of college when I died and became a reaper.
What was the scariest moment of your life?
Scariest moment? When I met Molly Bartolucci. My life … er, death … hasn’t been the same since.
What do you do to unwind and relax?
There was a place my brother used to take me when I was kid. It’s up near Tahoe. We used to park off the road and hike down to this little cove, and do stupid things like skip rocks and find pinecones. Sometimes, if I need a break, I’ll go there.
What would we find under your bed?
Things you don’t want to see. Trust me.
If I came to visit early in the morning would you impress me as being more like a chirpy bird or a grumpy bear?
Grumpy reaper. With a scythe and an excellent aim.
What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
I miss my mother’s cinnamon walnut pancakes. It was a Saturday morning tradition.
Is there a piece of advice that you have received that has really stuck with you? If so, what was it?
My brother told me: Giving up is for douchebags. Fight hard. Sweat. Bleed. Hell, you can even cry. But don’t you ever quit.

I thought the worst of my reaper training was behind me… turns out I was wrong. Dead wrong.
Molly Bartolucci has done a lot of growing up but after being accused of using illegal magic at her school for necromancers, reaper-in-training Molly is treading lightly. As the destined leader of Anubis’s Chosen, she needs to study hard, train harder, and stay out of trouble.
It doesn’t help that she’s feeling more than academic about her melt-your-bones hot reaping instructor, Rath. And if her relationship drama isn’t enough to drive her over the edge, she has to deal with mother issues, nosy little sisters, suspicious friends, and an unnamed force stalking her at school.
Then her family is attacked, and her bio-dad ends up comatose in the hospital. Now, Molly has to uncover who’s trying to hurt her loved ones—and all without the help of Anubis.
