I L-O-V-E this series! This is the 3rd book and is no exception. Alex is a grave witch. She can bring back a shade and it can tell about the moments leading up to a death. She also has a special connection in that she can see collectors (for the soul)...oh and she is part fae due to her father. Anyway, people are dying and they can't remember what happened...she ends of finding what she calls a "jumper". They go from person to person...using them up and then discarding them (in this case...having the body commit suicide) before they become ghouls. Death (a collector who is supposed to stay away from her...and by the way loves her)warns her away. Tells her to leave things alone...but of course she doesn't because she promised the wives of the deceased that she would find their husbands' killer. In the end, Death has to save her life by switching essence with her. What happens is she is no longer immortal...but he is. That makes him vulnerable...but it also makes him human...and a man. Then there is Falin who is told to also stay away from her and she can only speak to him about business due to his vow to the Winter Queen. He also loves her, but until she chooses a side he tells her not to trust him because he will be forced to betray her. Her business partner is bound to her and there is a ghost who works out of the closest. This book is jam packed with action, love and betrayal...in other words...AAAAWWWSOME!
