    1. This book had me chuckling from the first page. I thoroughly enjoyed the author's clean writing style (no purple anything here, folks) and her witty, sarcastic voice. Oz is a fantastic character, but I have to say my personal favorite was Bard, the reluctant "mentor" and all around asshole (But in a good way). With Reaper, Monroe takes a humorous and fresh look at the age-old tale of "Death" and those who dole it out, but beneath the sass and sarcasm is a deeper, more important message. I look f [...]

    2. I got this book for free from a facebook for authors and reviews to come together. I know I know I have enough to do with my life why go and seek more pain, but in most cases this pain becomes a pleasure. This is one of those times. Katrina's book starts off normal enough, you don't really know where it is going, and then oh he is dead and what a way to go. Then it jumps to the afterlife, which I must say really would fing suck. When she got to the "reaper" section I was REALLY surprised by the [...]

    3. Reaper is an amazing read! The characters seemed to jump off the page and keep me wanting more after it ended! I am not ashamed to admit I was late to work one morning because I couldn't put it down. I've read it twice now, and noticed things I missed the first time around. Definitely some good one-liners I have to remember for future use.

    4. Pitch Black Take on the AfterlifeI've seen stories about the bureaucracy of Death before. (Dead Like Me springs to mind.) But while those strive to find a lighter or more comedic tone, this is pitch black. The Reapers are uniformly miserable. Not only do they have to witness death every day, they have to fight to retrieve the souls before horrible Shadow wolves devour them. While I like the effort to keep the sentimentality at bay, some of the characters are extremely unlikable. Oz, our protagon [...]

    5. Couldn't put it downI loved this book from start to finish. It captivates you. I couldn't put it down. I was disappointed that it was over. I want to read more.
