Collect lifestones from humans after they die.

Rebellious, sixteen-year-old Naomi craves a normal life, but unfortunately, she’s a Grim by birth. That’s right, she sees dead people and hoards their living essence in a stone. Not a fun occupation.

I really enjoyed this book! I loved that is was something different a story line I have never read and I LOVED that it followed a girl grim! Smith did an awesome job writing this one delivering excitement, adventure and so much more!

Following Naomi Grim in her life of being a Grim at the age of sixteen was awesome. She seems to have a bit of a different look on human life then her 2 brothers and the rest of the Grim’s she knows. Her job sucks she has to hang out around a person till they pass t

Though I liked the idea for this book, I couldn't get past the behavior of some of the characters. I know these 'people' are different but the concept of parents who would rather climb the ladder of what they believe is 'success' rather than do what is best for their children is one I couldn't get past. I'm not sure if I will read the next book.

NAOMI GRIM is the introductory section of Tiffany Nicole Smith’s serialized novel, “Silver Scythe Chronicles.” As an introduction, there’s really very little actual story here – instead, the reader is introduced to Naomi and her family, including older brother Bram and younger brother Dorian. All of them are “Grims,” a race of people living in an alternative world called “Nowhere.” Grims are modern-day “Grim Reapers,” complete with scythes and the task of reaping the lives of the “Fated” (i.e. t ...more

I received this book to give an honest review as part of a blog tour.
This was a very different book for me to read! It deals with GRIMS! Yep I said it GRIMS, but it isn't all about death I guess you would say. You are introduced into a world where we learn about Grims and what they are suppose to do. They collect life stones that prolong a Grims life which I think is amazing. They start at age 13 collecting lifestones. Now if they break rules they lose so many years and it is quite painful. We f

Naomi lives with her family and all the other Grims in a parallel universe called Nowhere - between assignments. In order to stay alive, she must collect lifestones from those who die on Earth. Unlike other Grims, Naomi doesn't enjoy watching people die, which is going to be a big problem: she, her two brothers, and her best friend have been assigned to a high school where a lot of people are going to die soon.

When I first started this novel it seemed a lot like Croak, but the parallel universe

Did I enjoy this book: I’m all worked up about it! I’m angry. I’m interested. I’m excited about a series wherein even at the end of Book One I’m still not sure who the Good Guys are. I’m solidly on Naomi’s side, but I’m just as conflicted as she is about which side that ought to be. Smith’s story is interesting and (mostly) unpredictable, and that’s rare. Even if her writing doesn’t keep you reading, you’ll turn page after page hoping to find out that there are, in fact, Good Guys somew

Naomi is a Grim and they are required to collect life stones of people fated to die. Each time they bring back a life stone they gain years of life as well as money as payment. Naomi's family will move up and become a part of the Elite if she and friends can do a "big job". However, Naomi has empathy for humans which makes this difficult. She makes decisions that move her into a whole hew life with discards in her society. I thought this was a unique book and I liked it. I enjoy anti-hero heros( ...more

This could be an amazing book...Ig the beginning wasnt so poorly written and if the author could picture Naomi's world better. Because her world is soooo amazing!!!Its like Harry Potter's world in a way....Unique and amazing and interesting. I dont know if the second book is better I do know it will have more action and probably forbidden love but I was a little disappointed....I might continue it....
