Early to Death, Early to Rise: Madison Avery, Book 2

Madison Avery's dreams of ever fitting in at her new school died when she did. Especially since she was able to maintain the illusion of a body, deal with a pesky guardian angel, and oh yeah, bring the reaper who killed her to his untimely end. Not exactly in-crowd material. It's amazing that her crush, Josh, doesn't think she's totally nuts.

Publisher's Summary

Seventeen, dead, and in charge of heaven's dark angels, all itching to kill someone.

Madison Avery's dreams of ever fitting in at her new school died when she did. Especially since she was able to maintain the illusion of a body, deal with a pesky guardian angel, and oh yeah, bring the reaper who killed her to his untimely end. Not exactly in-crowd material. It's amazing that her crush, Josh, doesn't think she's totally nuts.

Now Madison has learned that she's the dark timekeeper, in charge of angels who follow the murky guidelines of fate. Never one to abide by the rules, she decides it's time for a major change to the system. With the help of some unlikely allies, Madison forms a rogue group of reapers who definitely don't adhere to the rules of the heavens.

But as she grapples with the terrifying new skills that come with being a timekeeper, Madison realizes she may not be prepared for what lies ahead, unless she gets some seriously divine intervention.

Dead but not forgotten: spend some more time with Madison Avery.

    "Soo Don't Buy This"
    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    A person who is interested in unrequited teenage love with a hint supernatural.


    Has Early to Death, Early to Rise turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. I read/listen to many books of this genre.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    No


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. I had just finished another book from Kim Harrison and want something else to read by her but his did not do it.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the Kim Harrison Rachel Morgan series and I thought this would be good to. If I had read this first I would not have tried the Rachel Morgan series. Try the Rachel Morgan series that is so much better. The charactesr are more defined. Rachel is an ADULT investigator with issues more interesting than a high school crush.
