Lana, the reaper, loves to shop, hates her job, and has the internal dialogue I'm sure several of us would love to give voice to. However, with the fascinating world built here, I would've preferred more supernatural exploration, deeper characters, and intricate plots to a reaper who seems more concerned with pedicures and boyfriends than Eternity breaking out into civil war.
I get the impression this story was supposed to be light and fun and deep and serious at the same time, but the balance was off, and the serious contemplation was overwhelmed by Lana's blase air and silliness such as hell hounds destroying a stuffed animal or a drunk archangel having to be talked out of a bar to catch his ride out of Limbo.
Overall, I probably won't continue the series, however if you like light, fun reads, this is still a free download on Amazon....more
