I was thrilled when I saw this at audible, I have read all 4 kindle books that have been released thus far in this series. I really enjoyed the intricate details, plotting and research that went into these books. There's also great characters, tongue in cheek humor and action. It doesn't have any graphic sex scenes. I'm a huge urban fantasy fan and this series is now on my auto buy list. The ending of this book isn't actually a cliff-hanger but the way it ends sets up the next book in such a way it really leaves you wanting more. I thought Hollie Jackson's narration was very good. I hope the rest of the series comes out on audio soon and that she reads them.

I'm always looking for a good reaper book. From the time I first read On a Pale Horse by Piers Anthony and watched Dead Like me and Defending Your Life - this has been a favorite theme to read and there are FAR too few good books with this theme! I am always pleasantly surprised when I find one. Graveyard Shift was definitely one of the better "reaper" books that I've read. Light and humorous with plenty of snark, Graveyard Shift takes place in an afterlife that encompasses all beliefs and religions, gods and goddesses working together and against one another in chaotic order. The main character Lana is an 8th? generation reaper, a low paid resident of Limbo created solely to handle the work that her boss Grim doesn't have time for since he's so involved in the day to day running and politics of Limbo. This was a quick fun and enjoyable read.

Would you consider the audio edition of Graveyard Shift (Lana Harvey, Reapers Inc. Book 1) to be better than the print version?
I enjoy the audio version at work and the written when things are quiet. They are both great
What did you like best about this story?
I love the whole idea of someone like lana being around on the other side,and people carrying on in an afterlife.
What about Hollie Jackson’s performance did you like?
She sound how I imagine lana to sound,she's very talanted.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
I'm not sure

Very slow & complex story. Lana is a reaper in Limbo sounds simple but there is a lot of back story that the writer crams in. In fairness I think this book is 'setting the scene' but that doesn't mean it isn't hard going at times. Light romance but NO hot bits or even snogging. Well written, flows easily but lots of information. Light listening .....heck NO.
Saying that it is interesting as a subject & I have brought the next book because I do want to know what happens.
