Reading a Debbie Cassidy book is like wrapping myself in a snuggly blanket. I always know that I'm going to get quality and can sit down to an enjoyable read.
Fee's life is turned upside down when she goes from an admin job, processing the deal souls in Necro City to unexpectedly becoming one of a small team of reapers. She has to deal with some big revelations about herself, adjust her expectations of what her life will be and get used to her fellow reapers... And they're not all making her welcome. Add into the mix a nefarious weapon that can kill the reapers and Fee is definitely thrown in at the deep end.
The world building, as usual, is interesting. After scientists released a toxin into the atmosphere that they thought would extend human's life, it instead made the spiritual world of ghosts visible to them. Humans can now see and interact with ghosts and humanity eventually got itself involved in the processing process for souls to cross over. You have purgatory, where the malignant souls go and Dead side, where those can go who aren't ready to move on yet and then the Beyond, where reapers take souls ready to pass on. The world building is sort of revealed piece by piece and there's still a lot to learn.
Fee (short for Seraphina) was a likeable heroine, tough and kick ass, but only to a certain extent, confident, yet not arrogant...I liked her a lot. Vora her ghostly side kick was a nice touch, too. Always nice to see positive female friendships in books.
There are four potential harem guys: Mal, a fellow reaper who I did not like at first, but who has hidden depths and one who grew on me, Conah, also a fellow reaper and who seemed lovely at first but then we find out something that puts him in my bad books, Az, her final fellow reaper who had a Bane vibe (for those who have read her Chronicles of Midnight series) and despite only appearing from 70ish% was probably my favourite. Then we have Grayson, Alpha of the local werewolf pack who might not end up with her, but I'm drifnitely intrigued.
The romance stuff feels a little more slow burn than usual, but I like it when author's actually bother to develop the relationships and don't just straight to traitorous bodies nonsense. We also have all of the guys distinct and separate from one another, as I always find with Debbie's books.
This is probably my favourite start to a series of Debbie's since Chronicles of Arcana, my very fave, so excited to read more!
Fee works for Soul Savers Inc helping ghosts be processed, the ghosts that humans can now see after scientists decided to mess with mortality, I mean honestly what could go wrong? Another outcome was the fact that once released into the atmosphere it also killed a lot of reapers which is another reason Soul Savers Inc was created, to try and take up the slack to the reapers depleted numbers. Other than working at Soul Savers Inc, Fee also lives with her friend Cora who I won't say too much about as you'll just have to read the book to find out more, and her pet snake Cyril.
The boys in this book are certainly on the yummy side, though Mal I mostly just wanted to slap for being such an ass. I'm kinda crossing my fingers for a little more Grayson in the next book too. This series is looking to be very promising if this first story is anything to go by and I honestly can't wait for book 2.
Slower start than normal but that’s needed as she has done an amazing job with the world building, Really original idea, Great Female MC Fee with a wonderful best friend and 3 scrumptious Dominus Reapers and a shifter pack leader who could be another love interest.
Debbie has created Complex characters that bounce off each other so well with banter that works so well.
There are also little additions such as the house imps that make you smile
This storey instantly pulls you in and immerses you in this wonderful new world, the storey is so good that you need to give your self time otherwise you will definitely lose sleep as you wont be able to put it down and when you have finished you are instantly disappointed as book 2 isn’t here yet and you really do need it like NOW!!!!!!
Our heroine is no nonsense, headstrong, kick butt woman named Seraphina-though she prefers Fee. She had a hero complex and unfortunately that’s what gets her in trouble, whilst trying to help she finds herself with a knife in her gut and a new destiny as a reaper.
Each character has an individual personality and plenty of mystery to them. There are so many secrets lurking under the surface and I can not wait to see where this series goes!! The world building is epic as usual and the banter is perfect. I know I’m going to get an amazing story from this author and I was not disappointed in this one!
I highly recommend this book to everyone who loves urban fantasy, and anything paranormal. I can imagine where this is heading and I am on pin and needles!!
You meet Fee who has a hero complex and lives with a ghost called Cora and her snake. The storyline is fast paced.
The three Male reapers bring adventure and action to the story.
I read this in a day so it's a rather quick read too.
2 Star = Finished. Didn’t really enjoy.
3 Star = Finished. Story was neither good nor bad.
3.5 Star = Finished. Story was good. Will probably pick up next in series if there is one.
4 Star = Finished. Enjoyed story & will definitely pick up next in the series!
5 Star = Bloody LOVED it! ❤️

This was one hell of a first book and I am already in love. Cannot wait for Fee to fall into all that kick-assery we know she can release.
Can I call dibs? Because I'm team AZ all the way 😂 even if he is a bit stuck up I know he has some pent up tension he needs to release.
Again, an amazing read and I cannot wait for the second book in this series!
