Lex, a teenage Grim Reaper, has the power to damn souls - and it’s getting out of control. Her boyfriend, Driggs, is dead - sort of. She’s a fugitive, on the run from the maniacal new mayor of Croak and the townspeople who want to see her pay the price for her misdeeds.
Uncle Mort rounds up the Junior Grims to flee Croak once again, but this time they’re joined by Grotton, the most powerful Grim of all time. Their new mission is clear: Fix his mistakes, or the Afterlife will cease to exist, along with all the souls in it. The gang heads for Necropolis, the labyrinth-like capital city of the Grimsphere. There, they discover that the Grimsphere needs a reboot. To do that, the portals to the Afterlife must be destroyed...but even that may not be enough to fix the damage.
Things go from bad to worse, and when at last the fate of the afterlife and all the souls of the damned hang in the balance, it falls to Lex and her friends to make one final, impossible choice.

Heartwrenchingly terrible, great - perfect and amazing. I swear to god if anyone ever tries to make this into a movie I will damn them, I will damn them right there on the spot. Oh wait, that wasn't the point... I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I can't help myself. This book, this trilogy, is exactly how it should be, Gina Damico you are brilliant.
Love this site! I have a very busy job, so listening to audio books enables me to keep up on great stories!
Sacrifice for the greater good. Wow.
Oh every time Mort catches Lex and Driggs in the act. SO FUNNY!
The ending. Heartbreaking. Talk about selflessness.
How far would you go to right a wrong?
I am sooooo sad to see this series end. I really loved the town of Croak and Lex and the gang. I'll miss these Grims, I feel invested in them. That means Ms. Damico did her job right. I love that even though this was a quite heavy book, it still had those moments of humor which was desperately needed. I'm so glad I picked up the series. HIGHLY recommended.
This is the 3rd book in a series geared primarily towards young adults. The story was good but the this particular book had quite a bit of unnecessary language. It really seemed the author was trying to hard to appeal to an older audience so she threw in a few F-bombs for the heck of it. I am not a prude but when the language isn't necessary and doesn't fit leave it out.
Yes, I loved all the snarky humor, sarcasm, and the storyline was great! The narration was great as well, I love the voices is that she gave for each character.
I don't want to provide any spoilers, so I can't go into detail, but the ending was very memorable.
Pretty much all of the scenes between Lex and Driggs. Their little love story is so funny, I love it!
Again, the ending. Can't go into it…
I really loved the series, I was a bit saddened by the end of it. Enough said.
I have not read the printed version, but the narration was superb!
The story flowed ahead, but you found plenty of little whirlpools along the way offering twists to the story.
Jessica offered one of the best performances I've ever heard. There is narration in the book, which I cannot discuss without spoiling it, but Jessica did a spectacular job of bringing Gina's words to life. All I can say is when you hear someone mention the "cusp of autumn" stand by for an amazingly well written dialog.
I wanted to listen to this book in one sitting. But at the same time, I did not want it to be over.
PLEASE take the time to listen to all three of these books. They are simply spectacular!
I am awesome.
I would listen to Rogue again because I always miss small things, that later turn out to be important. This book is full of
Comparatively, I think this book is much like the last book in the Divergent series, Allegiant.
By book three, I felt that she was really comfortable with the recurring characters.
You Reap what you sow. Or do you?
Loved the ending.
Witty, funny, emotional.
The ending - I will say no more.
Her portrayal of Grotton. He was great.
The whole series is a top favorite, one I will listen to again and again.
I can't tell without giving away the ending.
Probably the ferris wheel, it is so Lex.
The only issue I had with this book was when they were running. Were the guards too stupid to go through the same doors the kids did? Or could they not post guards at the each of the entrances once they figured out what they were doing?
Other than that, I ADORED the series. I don't often immediately reread (or listen) to a book, but I did on all three books. The narration was excellent also.
I adore reading! and I doubly adore audio books they go everywhere with me!
I think I would have loved reading this story, but Jessica made it really outstanding.... which can be hard with this subject matter.
Kudos to both writer and narrator!
