Overview

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. Now, thanks to a mysterious amulet, she's stuck on Earth: dead but not gone. She has no idea why the dark reaper who did her in was after her, but she's not about to just sit around and let fate take its course. With a little skilled light-bending, 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

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

Abounds with originality and introduces us to rich characters…is sure to introduce [Harrison] to a whole new generation of readers.

Melissa Marr

With a Kim Harrison novel, I expect action, humour, worldbuilding, strong female characters, true friendships, and a bit of realistic romance. I found it all right here.

Kelley Armstrong

Harrison injects her young adult debut with style and originality. Rocking good fun, packed full of twists and turns.

Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

An amusing and entertaining jaunt of an urban fantasy.
