Maddy is an Agent of Death, her job is to escort souls to the "Door". Her life is pretty mundane until a deliciously handsome stranger shows up at her door to rent out an apartment in her building and from there ciaos ensues.
First I must say, I'm not usually fond of first person books. Reasons are ones that I had read didn't convey the emotion, enough description and seemed rushed. But that changed after reading Twilight(I am not comparing those books to this one), I learned not to judge all books by a few not so good books. That being said I am glad this book had been written this way , you really feel like your Maddy when you're reading her view point.
There isn't anything about this book I didn't like, Maddy, she is a strong woman but does show her vunerable side as well, Gabriel is the mysterious handsome man that flies into her world turning it completely upside down - all through the book you are left asking what exactly is he? Which I think adds to the mystic of him. And then there is Beezle who can't but love this sarcastic little gargoyle , who loves popcorn and chocolate. My kind of companion.
This book is a fast read, and though do to real life I didn't actually get going with it til last night- I couldn't put it down. I can't wait for the next book in the series , Black Night which is scheduled for release Autumn of 2011.
