it was amazing

This book starts with a shock in that the main character, Ashen, dies. I knew it was about the afterlife, but to start with a living teenage girl and actually kill her off to open the story stunned me.

Now, you might think that would lower the stakes and make the rest of the story boring, but it doesn't. In this world, dead isn't the worst thing you can be, and the author does a great job of raising the stakes for these dead characters throughout the story.

The descriptions of people and places throughout the book are fantastic and detailed. I felt like I could actually see the ghostly version of Denver she created. The characters are richly detailed, each with their own story, voice and personality, and they serve perfectly to support the afterlife world the author has created.

The action moves fast, and every word matters. This is a book you can't skim, and you won't be able to put down. It will stay with you, long after you finish. Highly recommended.
