Cendall, history’s first female Grim Reaper, has until her eighteenth birthday to prove she’s worthy of the role. The only obstacle in her way are those pesky Guardian Angels who protect human souls, but Cendall is certain she can handle any Guardian who gets in her way. 

However, nothing could have prepared Cendall for Lacie—a soul that is protected by multiple Guardians, wanted by Demons, and, most startling of all, can see Cendall. 
Cendall uses every trick in the book to try and slip past Lacie’s Guardians and collect her soul, but a Demon interferes at the last moment. In the chaos, Cendall accidently saves Lacie’s soul, along with one of the injured Guardians. Realizing Cendall fears termination for her mistake, the Guardian blackmails her with an offer she can’t refuse: in exchange for his silence, Cendall must keep Lacie’s soul safe from the Demon, until he recovers from his injuries. Cendall agrees—with the intention of checking Lacie’s soul off her list, the instant the Guardian is healed. But as the three of them are forced to work together, Cendall begins to question why Lacie is wanted by the Demons and if her name actually belonged on Cendall’s list in the first place.

***Melanie – #NerdGirlVamp’s Review***
This is the second book by this author that I was lucky enough to have the chance to review and she is fast edging her way up my favorites list! Although set in a totally different world to the first with a whole new set of characters you could definitely hear this authors voice … and I LOVE that!

Reapers seem to be a popular theme lately and this is a great example of how they SHOULD be written.  The book is fast paced and the characters are vibrant and intriguing.  The story is unique but has enough familiar qualities that you can dive right in and just enjoy the ride.

I really hope that the author decides to continue this series because although the story “finished” it certainly left the door open for a whole new adventure.

A very well deserved 4 1/2 out 5 stars from me! (Rounded up to 5 as per my protocol)
