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.

This book is like a gorgeous layered dessert. You love it from the first bite and then all these amazing flavours smack you in the face and you get seriously upset when you look down and realise you've finished it and there's no more in the dish.
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!
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.
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.
