Publisher's Summary

Sixteen-year-old Lex Bartleby is a teenage grim reaper with the bizarre ability to Damn souls. That makes her pretty scary, even to fellow Grims. But after inadvertently transferring her ability to Zara, a murderous outlaw, Lex is a pariah in Croak, the little town she calls home. To escape the townspeople’s wrath, she and her friends embark on a wild road trip to DeMyse. Though this sparkling desert oasis is full of luxuries and amusements, it feels like a prison to Lex. Her best chance at escape would be to stop Zara once and for all - but how can she do that from DeMyse, where the Grims seem mysteriously oblivious to Zara’s killing spree?

No Progress With The Story

Any additional comments?

Hmm, I'm not really sure how I feel about this book. I just finished it a few minutes ago. I'm now sitting here, wondering how I really feel about it. I figured the story wouldn't end. Just like book 1, it's left at a cliff hanger and you must buy book 3 to get any closure. But I expected that. What I didn't expect was for there to be no moving forward in the story line. It's hard to explain without giving spoilers.<br/>I didn't like that there was so much jumping around, literally. They're in one place, then another, then another, over and over. There were several times when I thought I may have zoned out during the audiobook and missed a chunk of book. Also, there's no time given. Has it been an hour, a day, or a whole week? With as much jumping from place to place, it's hard to tell the time.<br/>And honestly, the ending just got stupid. The first part of the book was fine. The second, with all the jumping and characters, new gifts, new beings, deaths, etc. it just got so jangled that it was stupid.<br/>Also, what's the point of being "special" with the rare ability to "damn" if anyone can just easily take it (or copy your power with a touch and then use it themselves?) Which leads me to also wonder......why are scythes so readily available? The reapers have their very own scythe, made just for them. So why are they a dime a dozen and can be taken and used by any reaper?<br/>So I will give this audiobook 3 stars. The narrator was spot on again. I will go ahead and buy book 3, just for closure and to feel like I haven't wasted my money on the first 2. (If I didn't already have money sunk into the first 2 books, I would not continue with the series.)

Depressing

What did you like best about Scorch? What did you like least?

It kept my attention, but it is a young adult book that this older adult found a little juvenile. The end was a bit depressing as well.

What was most disappointing about Gina Damico’s story?

Multiple plot holes.

Humorous shenanigans.........

This is Book 2 in the series Lex is in trouble what with her burgeoning powers, an angry scared town of Croak, and a very dangerous Zara.
Much in the same vain as the first book but the situation is running to desperate if Lex is to solve the puzzle, and face Zara.
Lots of tongue in cheek humor, love and action, again a keeper. The characters are the strength of the book an easy entertaining listen. Only whinge is it stops again on a cliffhanger!

Good finale for the series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it's fun to read this series.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Being the last book in the series I was of course, quite upset.... but it was a good ending overall.

Any additional comments?

Great series - read these books.
