Soul of the Crow is about a young girl who gets sucked into the life of a Reaper. Without really knowing it, she becomes a slave to the underworld, collecting souls for Ucogo whenever asked. And that's as much as I'm going to say about it at this point in time. :)(less)

No problem. Thanks for accepting 😀 I'm always on the lookout for Goodread friends with similar tastes in books! Not sure why, considering my TBR pile is ridiculously high lol

Oops! I'm just now seeing this. Sorry! Maybe you already saw my review, but I wasn't that blown away by it. I wanted to be! It had all the right makings for something super fun! But it fell short... You planning on reading it soon? I'd be interested to know what you thought. I've heard a lot of mixed opinions about it!
