It is the story of how Eustice wakes up in the afterlife and learns that she has been recruited into the Reaper Corps. The whole thing has a feel like "Dead Like Me" but instead of earth, the action takes place in Purgatory. There were a couple of typos but too few to really bother me. The book is a simple print, no fancy ISBNs, extra pages or even page numbers but that did not bother me either. I liked the story.
The author came up with a very interesting twist, one of the reasons for the eternal battle between angels and demons...and I won't give it away. I will only say that it has to do with the principle that celestials cannot reproduce like humans. Of course, there are the usual disparaging remarks about humans and how we waste our lives, etc., etc. - aren't we authors the condescending asses?
Bottom line, I liked it, there were no werewolves nor vampires. It has action, a budding romance, adventure, intrigue, humor and lots of imagination. The author has done a good job of adding enough description that I am able to visualize the place and characters. I look forward to the next book.
My reason for taking one star before the ending? Grammatical issues pulled me out of the book several times, but the common sentence structure of ending with ", though." I found annoying. I eventually had to stop myself from counting occurrences.
This is how Eustice Jennings finds herself, awakening in Purgatory only to find she has no memories of her life or how she died. She’s recruited in to the Reaper Corps, where she makes allies and ones that may or may not be what they seem. The Celestials are hiding all kinds of secrets, Seraphs and Infernals alike. It’s all about to come crashing down around Eustice.
Quite an interesting look on Purgatory, definitely one I haven’t seen before.
