Release date: June 26th 2012
I died on a Thursday-killed by a monster intent on stealing my soul. The good news? He didn't get it. The bad news? Turns out not even death will get you out of high school... Covering up her own murder was one thing, but faking life is much harder than Kaylee Cavanaugh expected. After weeks spent "recovering," she's back in school, fighting to stay visible to the human world, struggling to fit in with her friends and planning time alone with her new reaper boyfriend. But to earn her keep in the human world, Kaylee must reclaim stolen souls, and when her first assignment brings her face-to-face with an old foe, she knows the game has changed. Her immortal status won't keep her safe. And this time Kaylee isn't just gambling with her own life...
This series is like a roller coaster and we never know if Kaylee is safe and what is coming after her, although is pretty safe to bet on Avery, but he get new tricks every book and is insane to wonder what is coming new.
So having started to read this series in January I didn’t had to wait very long for this book and I’m wondering how people managed, because I was so anxious to read about Kaylee new job in the afterlife, plus Tod is kinda amazing as a boyfriend, much better than Nash and he’s very helpful.
The book started after one month from the previous and now we can see how Kaylee is adjusting to lack of sleep and trying to make her body corporeal to go back to school. She’s having a hard time, but that’s nothing new and everybody is kinda worried about her new job, since is barely different from a banshee and of course dangerous.
Kaylee is now responsible to save the souls from people killed before their appear on the reapers list. Is kinda like the first book, when the rogue reaper killed young girls for a demon. Only difference now is that she answer to a boss and the necromancer tells her where to pick the stolen souls, but everything fall the ladder and Kaylee discovers that Avery can possess death people without needing the living and having a corporeal body, crazy right?
I loved this book and the steps where we learned more about her new job and how she acted help from other people this time was surprising. Tod was great and very romantic, can you believe he’s got an apartment just to have a place to take Kaylee? Nash started the book being his regular bastard but ended up being better, not great and don’t think I’ll ever really life him anymore. Kaylee’s father is learning to parent a teenager and now he’s life is really difficult, but he was loveable in this book.
The end was unexpected and OMG I can’t wait for the next book. Start counting for April to get here soon.

“It's suspiciously quiet in here, and there's a Tod shaped dent in the bean bag. For the sake of both my sanity and my temper, I'm going to pretend I can't tell that you're in his lap, so could you pretend that this is still my house and you are still my daughter, and I'm within my parental rights to kick your boyfriend out after 11:00 p.m.?”
