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.

3.0 Leider nicht mein Fall
Seit ich vor Jahren den ersten Band von Kim Harrisons mittlerweile 10-bändiger Rachel Morgan Serie gelesen habe, bin ich ein Riesenfan der Autorin. Ihre Urban Fantasy Romane haben mich allesamt begeistert, obwohl ich bei Serien oft nach den ersten zwei oder drei Bänden einfach die Lust verliere. Des...

The voice was cute and the story was interesting. Only downside was how rushed everything felt.

4.0 Madison Avery. Totgeküsste leben länger
Madison Avery ist tot, jedoch irgendwie auch wieder nicht, denn sie kann mithilfe eines Amulettes, das sie dem Todesengel, der sie getötet hat, abgenommen hat, ihren Körper projizieren und ihr Weiterleben vortäuschen. Einfach hat sie es dabei jedoch nicht, denn sie muss sich zunächst in einer Welt a...

3.0 Once Dead, Twice Shy (Madison Avery, Book 1)
First I want to start off by saying I’m a fan of Kim Harrison’s books and I was looking forward to reading this book, the cover was amazing. But I was a little disappointed unlike “The Hollows” her adult series which is quite good. I wasn’t riveted by this one. The pacing was slow moving and by time...
