Publisher's Summary

When her father died, Lucy Mae Estmond inherited the family business. She has known all of her life that she will be in line to watch over the souls of the recently passed, keeping them safe from the Reapers.
The soul eating Reapers have been a plague upon the Earth, stealing souls and leaving the Keepers as the only thing that stands between heaven and hell. The factions despise each other and have warred for generations.
Then Lucy discovers an ancient legend predicting the arrival of the Chosen One, destined to bring forth an end to the Reapers. The surprises continue when she realizes she is that person. For Lucy, being the Chosen One doesn't change much. Fighting Reapers is just another day in the life of a Keeper.
When she meets Jack Walker, they both realize they have an insane, mutual attraction. Too bad that he's been sent to prevent the prophecy from coming true. His only mission: to kill the Chosen One.

Great Storyline

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The genre isn't my preference so I found I was eager for the conclusion.


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The most interesting were the characters. Malone Wright had a way of capturing my attention with each character and overall fast pace of the plot.

I was least interested in the particular descriptions of clothing and scenery and feel it could be much improved by taking out the multiple occurrences of the "f word" and detailed mentions of what each character wore.

Many aspects of the book foreshadowed the next one and have me curious about their importance in the next installment.


What does Kelsey Osborne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Osborne was fantastic with her reading and expressions throughout this. Even with the amount of sex scenes and passion throughout she kept a great pace which kept my attention.


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

The genre isn't my typical favourite so I think I would pass on the movie but would recommend it for fans of the genre.


Any additional comments?

The amount of vulgarity was really unexpected and had me hesitate on listening to the entire book. Although I'm not against it if the character feels the need to say it occasionally I found it was too common and took away from the overall story.

A Morbidly Fun and Lively Listen

This is definitely a milk and cookie book. The tension between Lucy and Jack, along with their warring worlds, creates a sizzling mix of emotions to explore. The narrator captures each personality and really brings the world and the characters to life; so much so, that I listened to this book on a road-trip and always hated to stop for gas because I wanted to hear the next chapter. It is geared towards young adults, but can also keep the attention of an older audience. If you are looking for some light, romantic (at times exotic) entertainment, in a world with some magical twists, give this book a listen.
