Publisher's Summary

Fed up with her wild behavior, 16-year-old Lex’s parents ship her off to upstate New York to live with her Uncle Mort for the summer, hoping that a few months of dirty farm work will whip her back into shape. But Uncle Mort’s true occupation is much dirtier than shoveling manure. He’s a Grim Reaper. And he’s going to teach Lex the family business.

She quickly assimilates into the peculiar world of Croak, a town populated by reapers who deliver souls from this life to the next. But Lex can’t stop her desire for justice - or is it vengeance? - whenever she encounters a murder victim, craving to stop the attackers before they can strike again. Will she ditch Croak and go rogue with her reaper skills?

    "Too young for this young adult"

    Admittedly I am not this books target audience, but I love me some young adult novels. It's my guilty pleasure...don't tell. But this book was painful. It's written from the idealized point of view young teenagers have about life as an "adult." Which unfortunately isn't believable or relatable. This could have been overlooked however,if characters were written well and likable. The adults do not behave how they should in any conceivable scenarios. This is extremely evident with in the first chapter where lex's parents restrain her with jump ropes at the dinner table. It also didn't help that I had solved the mystery before half the book was over and dissolved to desperately searching for spoilers online to check I was right so I could stop listening.

    This was not my favorite book and I would not recommend it to anyone.

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "Not bad for a YA trilogy"

    I've just finished all 3 books. Overall a nice little series. Most certainly YA (even though it glorifies some behaviors that it should avoid). Good way to spend a few hours.

    I can be summed up in one word. Handsome, intelligent, honest, humble, brave, exciting, fun, kind, trustworthy, sexy! All these words work.

    Story
    "Inconsistent . . ."
    What disappointed you about Croak?

    The characters reactions and actions are inconsistent. Like her parents tie her up with a jump rope to talk to her because she is dangerous, but no other real precautions were made to make her behave. The humor seems labored. The plot is spotty and doesn't drive the story. The characters are one dimensional. The premise is interesting, but the execution is flawed. Unfortunately, I bought the first and second books together in a sale.

    "unexpectedly wonderful"

    the story is the right blend of fun and funny, dark and silly, and the narrator is perfect for the story.
    I loved it, and the resident 13yo is eating it up....

    "10 year old boy review"

    It's awesome! I listened to it on our way to camp in upstate NY. Dad said I was obsessed with it. I couldn't put the book down. The suspense was great, and I really felt love for the characters.

    What do you even say about yourself on an audio book site? I like books? I don't have time to read anymore so I listen?

    "good narration"

    not so good story. The entire thing feels slow and forced. I really enjoyed it by the last couple chapters. once things picked up. idk if I will grab the next one. I'm interested to see what happens but not very interested in the shallow relationships and lack of common sense the main character has.

    "not bad, but a little underwhelming"

    Wasn't bad, when I finished it I realized how influenced by Harry potter it seemed to be.
