The author, Darynda Jones writes the book in the fantasy style. All of her characters are a little off center. The story is about a Grim Reaper. The main
Male in the is as ephemeral as smoke and moves fast. Is he dead or alive? Read a sample to see if you like it. The narrator is Lorelei King. If you have read the Stephanie Plum mysteries you know how brilliant and funny she is. I was excited to know Ms king is the voice and the heart of the story.
I read a hard copy of the first book in this series, then found it on Audible. I'm now nearly finished with the ones that have been published so far and I have to say the narration absolutely MAKES these stories. I listen to tons of books -- have probably a hundred on my device -- and Lorelei King brings these characters and this story right off the page. I started one of them on my kindle and thought something was missing -- it was her voice! Highly recommended for wit, humor, suspense, and of course the sexiest anti-hero ever, Reyes Farrow!
I am an avid fantasy and urban fantasy reader. I also read a lot of millitary romance.
I liked the book even though I passed on it several times based on the summary. I am glad I finally gave it a shot.
Lorelai King is one of my favorite performers. This was another excellent performance.
I haven't listened to or read anything that made me smile as much since Stephanie Plum started he career as a bounty hunter. Enjoyed it!
Mom of 3 wild and crazy boys, I've become obsessed with books again after being sucked into a little vampire/lovestory series you may have heard of, and now I listen to most books (but read at night) so that I can be somewhat productive during the day and not leave my family and home to collapse around me while my nose is stuck in a book ; )
For me it was slow to get started. Funny, but sometimes corny. Didn't know someone could be so persuaded to do things bc of coffee. It felt like she was trying a little too hard to throw in a joke and too many one-liners. I found myself putting it down quite a bit and not in a hurry to come back to it, unlike some books that I find myself driving slower to get places just so I can keep listening. Even though it Took me awhile to get into it and to follow it at times, as it started nearing the end that is when the meat of the story came in and I was beginning to be drawn to these characters. I am definitely interested in continuing this series now. Hopefully the one-liners will peter off a bit and we will get to join her as she discovers her true abilities. It's got great potential, and considering there are numerous books in this series, I can only believe that they just get better.
All I need is tea and a good story.
I a lover of books think this funny slightly ditzy girl riper rocked. while she stumbles on to crimes she has cool powrs to help her out. get it now!!!
