Death and the other Reapers have a challenge. Earth's population has made soul collection a big problem, and according to Death's figures, it will only get worse. Death is a skilled but reluctant bureaucrat who tries to enlist help before Human souls start backing up.

But since no good deed goes unpunished, Death and the other Horsemen will have to put up with a whole new a

Pestilence, famine, war, oh my. Creativity, shock, and a questioning what, all rolled into one story.
To say this was a surprise read from her other series, would be an understatement. I have to admit, at first I couldn't wrap my head around it as I first felt shock for the, shall I say audacity, of an author to write some of these things that fly in the face of the religious minded. But if you let the chains on your mind go, you begin to sense the limitlessness of one's abilities to grasp the di

this book was a funnier than I thought! At, first i was a little disappointed at the fact that "grim" the reaper of death does drugs. was about to say that the book wasn't for me, but the author then turned the attention on his job and left the drug use at that. i got this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. i loved this book and will be buying the second one in this series!

this book is about the "OHD" office of human death. got their budget taken over by lucifer to his place

Great book!! If religious you might be offended so don't even bother. I enjoyed the humor of it though :)

(Book provided by the author through ARR #610 in the Making Connections group, in exchange for an honest review.)

I'm always up for stories that poke fun about serious themes, and 'death' and 'angels' have always been such themes for me. Reapers With issues deals exactly with those: the heavy celestial bureaucracy, with all the defects the latter term entails, and how figures of terror, the Four Horsemen, must deal with very day-to-day, down-to-earth problems regarding death. Their main problem b

First of all, I think Jesus is my all-time favorite character. He's such a sweet little fruitcake.

Though the book didn't really hook me until page 20, from then on I was pretty much in stitches the whole time. Basically, this book puts Heaven and all of its holy tenants in a corporate-world setting, throwing in money problems, drugs, romances, scandals, and civil disobedience. Additionally, every character in this book besides Jesus has a sick little sense of humor.

There were so many what-the-fu

Do not pick up this book if you have no sense of humor.

I loved this book. LOVED it! I laughed the entire way thru it. If you can't laugh at something, you are taking it way too seriously.

Seems that no one, not even death can get away from middle management BS. Grim's budget for OHD, Office of Human Death, has been slashed and his plea for extra Reapers is going to the dogs. God puts Jesus in charge, who has no idea about Reaping souls. Grim

I received this book as part of a Goodreads Giveaway.

Before I begin, if you have hangups about death, Jesus or God either let go of them or don't read this book. (I suggest you let go of them and read this.)

This book was EXACTLY what I needed this last month. With a super hectic schedule it was perfect for picking up and reading its short chapters. It spent many a night in the tub with me, where, I might add the accoustics were great for anyone who was within earshot to hear me laughing out lou

The four horsemen have office problems. I really did not care about any of the characters at all until close to the end when I felt I might understand Grim a little more than the others. Parts of the story were funny, but I felt like I was missing the humor a lot. Guess this one just wasn't for me.

Thanks to the author and Making Connections for the opportunity.

Very funny. All the characters are interesting more funny than scary. I like the set up for next book, it makes you want to read it.
