Life or Death? Not many people would choose death. But what if death chooses you? What if death doesn’t mean the end of your life, but the beginning?
For a Death Escort, death is life. Death is your paycheck. Death is your job.
And Charming is the best Escort the Grim Reaper has ever had.
But when you piss off the Reaper, being the best doesn’t matter. So Charming is assigned a Target who is practically impossible to kill. He knows the Reaper hopes he fails—that he’s counting on it. So Charming vows to prove him wrong. He vows to make the kill.
But someone else vows to get in his way. Someone with a big mouth, a sugar habit, and blond hair. Someone who makes his heart start beating again.
And so Charming is left holding more than one person’s fate in the palm of his hand. He thought the choice would be easy, that there really wasn’t a question at all.
He was wrong.
Life or Death?
While the prologue did not capture my attention as much as I wish it had- I was bored through most of the scene- once I got passed that, I was really intrigued. But, then again, I am usually instantly pulled in when one of the characters is “dead”. By the end of Chapter 5, I had fallen in love with Charming and his arrogant ass. At points, I felt like I was almost sucked in to my Nook and transported to another time and place where this story was playing out in front of my eyes. And, I’m not just talking about the Frankie parts; Charming was the same way. Writing in the first person can be tricky, to say the least, but Cambria Hebert writes it in a way that seems almost effortless. While there were areas that could stand some improvement- as there is for any author- I feel that Ms. Hebert is a true talent, with a best-selling novel on her hands.
