Fans of Kim Harrison won't be disappointed by this second title featuring Madison Avery. They will be pulled right along as Madison tries to figure out how to be a dark timekeeper, a position that she didn't want to begin with and would just as soon give back if she was able.

Madison tries her best to keep people from being killed for crimes they have yet to commit, but it may just be out of her hands. With help from Dark Reaper Nakita and Neutral Reaper Barnabas, she tries her best to help people see the path they are walking before it becomes too late to act.

I think this book was actually better than the first one, mainly because we are offered more time to get to know everyone. More questions are raised as Madison tries to figure out exactly where she fits in and how to do her "job" properly. Awesome storyline and I liked how it centered around one reap. I loved getting to know the characters and their take on the situations, although in the end the choices aren't always clear.

EARLY TO DEATH, EARLY TO RISE contains interesting characters and relationships that I believe only make the story that much better. This is 5-star reading material that will keep you coming back for more.

Madison Avery, 17-year-old dead teenager, has discovered her fate is to be the dark timekeeper, the one who sends out dark reapers to kill those about to lose their soul. But Madison doesn’t believe in fate, she believes in choice, and determines to give those people a chance to like. This upsets a long tradition, and everyone, dark, light, and human, seems to be against her. She needs to save a soul, convince the angels, and not get grounded by her dad.

More fun mind candy, as Madison wrestles with the problems of dating, her dad worried about her not eating, and changing an age old tradition of killing. I think she would be helped by better requirement analysis skills, as the set-up and success criteria seem rather ill-defined.

Definetly teen and younger reader material but fun and develops nicely the story line.

It's a good read considering that the book is teen fiction
