My name is Madison Avery, and I'm here to tell you that there's more out there than you can see, hear, or touch. Because I'm there. Seeing it. Touching it. Living it. Madison's prom was killer—literally. For some reason she's been targeted by a dark reaper—yeah, that kind of reaper—intent on getting rid of her, body and soul. But before the reaper could finish the job, Madison was able to snag his strange, glowing amulet and get away. Now she's stuck on Earth—dead but not gone. Somehow the amulet gives her the illusion of a body, allowing her to toe the line between life and death. She still doesn't know why the dark reaper is after her, but she's not about to just sit around and let fate take its course. With a little ingenuity, some light-bending, and the help of a light reaper (one of the good guys! Maybe . . . ), her cute crush, and oh yeah, her guardian angel, Madison's ready to take control of her own destiny once and for all, before it takes control of her. Well, if she believed in that stuff.

Summary

A New York Times bestseller

My name is Madison Avery, and I'm here to tell you that there's more out there than you can see, hear, or touch. Because I'm there. Seeing it. Touching it. Living it.

Madison's prom was killer—literally. For some reason she's been targeted by a dark reaper—yeah, that kind of reaper—intent on getting rid of her, body and soul. But before the reaper could finish the job, Madison was able to snag his strange, glowing amulet and get away.

Now she's stuck on Earth—dead but not gone. Somehow the amulet gives her the illusion of a body, allowing her to toe the line between life and death. She still doesn't know why the dark reaper is after her, but she's not about to just sit around and let fate take its course.

With a little ingenuity, some light-bending, and the help of a light reaper (one of the good guys! Maybe . . . ), her cute crush, and oh yeah, her guardian angel, Madison's ready to take control of her own destiny once and for all, before it takes control of her.

Well, if she believed in that stuff.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“With a Kim Harrison novel, I expect action, humor, world building, strong female characters, true friendships, and a bit of realistic romance. I found it all right here.” Melissa Marr, New York Times bestselling author of Wicked Lovely
“Harrison injects her young adult debut with style and originality. Rocking good fun, packed full of twists and turns.” Kelley Armstrong, New York Times bestselling author of The Awakening
“Harrison weaves an exciting battle, not between good and evil, but between free will and destiny. A compelling blend of mysticism, suspense and surprise make for a quick and pleasurable read.” Publishers Weekly
“An enjoyable and well-conceived book for those who believe in supernatural forces such as angels, and it makes readers consider whether light and dark forces really do represent good and evil.” Children’s Literature
“Harrison’s young adult debut is an amusing and entertaining jaunt of an urban fantasy…The characters are an entertaining bunch from the witty punk lead Madison, to the humorous guardian angel Grace, to the ever arguing reapers. All points considered, the novel is a solid and enjoyable read.” VOYA
