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?

I am awesome.
I will definitely rerun this book because the story was quite captivating. Plus, I love going back to see if I can find clues I missed prior.
Any this book holds up to any other Grimm tales that I have read. It was kind of nice to see this from a female's perspective,rather than, the usual male.
My favorite character is still Uncle Mort. Close second, Driggs
Easy to get engulfed in the story.
Already have - An engaging story with a fun and witty MC.
The description of the city Necropolis. I had a good giggle over that.
Love this site! I have a very busy job, so listening to audio books enables me to keep up on great stories!
Oh all of it. I just love the Juniors. And that Gina Damico. She is the best. Such a clever writer. I'm so glad I stumbled onto this series!
Pip. SOOOO adorable!
The ending of course. Talk about a cliffhanger!
You must read these books ASAP. They are smart, sassy, and splendid.
Fantastic story, and an absolutely wonderful Voice Artist! I will be following both the author And the voice artist from here on out. Highly recommended!!
YES! the Narration was very well done, the story line kept moving and it kept you interested in all the characters. (even the really nasty ones)
The story line was about young people and how they take charge of their lives, and how they eventually take responsibility for their actions.
She was perfect for this series, with emotions and voices especially.
Looking forward to the last book in this trilogy. Knowing that there will be an end also makes it more enjoyable. Some authors don't know when to stop. I have a feeling book three will be totally worth the listen.
the kids came into their own. they grew up, and took the lead for a bit of the book.
for the least. that there was a big jump at the end. fight...end. I needed more. but the next book does put it all in place.
lol, going to all the spots in the kids lives. I liked that. fun, to run the uncle around.
it was the chapter of the kids jumping the uncle all over. I laughed so hard...I could just see it. :)
I usually don't do cliffhangers. Mostly because the sequel sucks. Perfect us the only way to describe this sequel. Lex is my new YA favorite heroine. She is like a little Kate Daniels and that is some high praise. Wonderfully written
Heated Battle Begins
One of those well-written series books on the level of Eoin Colfer, Jonathan Stroud, Kevin Hearne or Diane Duane.
I've only heard her in this series, but she is amazing.
There were plenty of opportunities for a chuckle, but the story ragged ahead, dragging you with it.
I am so glad I found this gem or a series!
The characters in the story are witty and likable. The book actually made me laugh out loud. Gina Damico's Grimsphere is a cleverly built world that provides an entertaining backdrop for the story.
No. There are way too many places where you want to shake someone and shout, "It's obvious! Why don't you do..." And I just want to say that it easier to grab a scythe out of someone's hand than any other item in the universe. It happens all the time in this book. The only thing that is easier take is the ability to damn. SPOILER - The revelation that Lex had been killing bad guys all along just dropped out of thin air. It's like chapters were left out of the book.
SPOILER - I did get a certain satisfaction out of Lex strangling Zara.
I'd wait for the dvd.
Jessica Almasy does an incredible job of bringing the cast of characters to life.
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!
