Publisher's Summary

"My name is Madison Avery, and I'm here to tell you that there's more out there than you can see, hear, or touch. Because I'm there. Seeing it. Touching it. Living it."Madison's prom was killer - literally. For some reason she's been targeted by a dark reaper - yeah, that kind of reaper - intent on getting rid of her, body and soul. But before the reaper could finish the job, Madison was able to snag his strange, glowing amulet and get away. Now she's stuck on Earth - dead but not gone. Somehow the amulet gives her the illusion of a body, allowing her to toe the line between life and death. She still doesn't know why the dark reaper is after her, but she's not about to just sit around and let fate take its course.With a little ingenuity, some light-bending, and the help of a light reaper (one of the good guys! Maybe . . . ), her cute crush, and oh yeah, her guardian angel, Madison's ready to take control of her own destiny once and for all, before it takes control of her.... Well, if she believed in that stuff.

What the Critics Say

"For ardent fans of the good-looking undead, this has plenty of verve, an enjoyable role reversal (Madison is constantly rescuing the good-guy hunk), and is quite fun when the supernatural characters are placed within a regular high-school milieu. Like it or not, a sequel is rising from the underworld as we speak." (Booklist)

THIS BOOK WAS JUST OK KIND OF BORING

I JUST FINISHED LISTENING TO THE WHOLE TRILOGY AND IT WASNT AS GOOD AS I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE. THE CHARACTERS WERE FINE BUT THE NARRATOR WASNT. I FEEL THAT HER VOICE IS BETTER SUITED FOR TEENS. OTHE THAN THAT, THE BOOKS WERE PRETTY BORING AND SHORT. THE ONLY BOOK I ENJOYED WAS THE 3rd BOOK.

- Stephanie "I have now I listened and read over 1500 books since 2010. Goodreads.com is a good way to find books and keep track of what you've read."

Money wasted

I like Kim Harrison's Hollows series so I thought I would like this. But, I found it tedious to read, therefore, never identified or sympathized with the characters. I gave it two stars instead of one only because I like the author and hope for a better read in number two of this series.
