Publisher's Summary

Your dead are our business.

Got a loved one who’s passed? Want to ask your dead aunt where she hid that elusive will? Head over to Necro city and look no further than Soul Savers Inc.

One day the world was normal, and the next, it was filled with ghosts. And then the reapers came. Blood-sucking hot dudes with wings and wicked scythes. They took control, and now we have a system.

Now we have Necro city, the hub of all things untethered.

As a soul relocation agent, it’s my job to rehouse the dead until the reapers come to collect, but with so few of those dudes about, the wait isn’t pretty. Thank goodness for decent coffee, frosted donuts, and a pending promotion.

Things are looking good until they’re not.

One bar fight and a dead reaper later, I’m left holding the scythe.

Not just any scythe, but a scythe belonging to one of Lilith’s four favored sons - the most powerful reapers in the world.

For some reason, it’s chosen me.

Now, three very large, very pissed off reapers are on my case.

It looks like that promotion is going to have to wait.

A kickass urban fantasy with a why choose romance. Vampires, ghosts, angels, and demons. Perfect for listeners who enjoy forbidden romance, enemies to lovers, or friends to lovers.

What's a girl supposed to do?

This intriguing storyline grabbed my attention immediately and held it throughout the whole book. Fee, the main character, works for a company that processes the dead. She is best friends with a ghost and, despite her tragic past, is caring and willing to help others. And that's what gets her in trouble. When she sees a Reaper in trouble, she goes to help and finds herself in a position she didn't want or need. The other Reapers don't seem to be happy about it either.
This audio book made my chores fly by and I'm looking forward to listening to the next book by Debbie Cassidy.

Great start to the series!

What a great start to a series! Fee has had a bit of a rough run in her life, losing her parents, then her aunt, and thing aren't so good at her job, either. However, things manage to get even rougher when she goes out for a night with her best ghosty girlfriend/roommate, only to almost die because she can't sit by and allow someone to get hurt – and ends up becoming a reaper instead. I felt this was a strong start to this multi-book series. I've enjoyed the intro to the other characters, some I've liked, some I haven't, and was excited by the cliffhanger at the end. The narrator's performance was strong and entertaining. I look forward to listening to the next book in the series.

drawn out and cut off

the story has lots of potential, but it moved so slowly and then abruptly cut off. I understand authors pushing a series, but books should really have a complete plot to each. this book introduced but dragged to nowhere.

Immediately Hooked! Love This So Much!

I bought this book on a whim, wanting to listen to something other than news or music, and I'm so glad I did! I was immediately hooked. Keira Stevens' narration is the perfect partner to Debbie Cassidy's writing, and together they transport you into a world of Reapers, vampires, loup garoux, and other demons, making you feel all the emotions that Sarafina goes through as you're introduced to this incredible world right alongside her. I'm an amateur voice actor myself, and I hope I can be half as good as Ms. Stevens someday!

Unexpected for sure.

Great series starter.
The blurb does not mention RH outright, but the hints with three guys making it hard for her and the mention of several love interests should lead you to the right conclusions.
Good story and I'm looking forward to the series as a whole.
I recommend this book.
I can recommend the audiobook. But would probably go for a re-read instead of listening again.

Great start to Fee's story, can't wait for book 2

I loved this book from the beginning.
Serafina (Fee) works for Soul Savers Inc, helping the dead move on. With a ghost as a best friend and a pet snake, Fee is just waiting for the promotion that means she can see her beloved Aunt again. That's until she witnesses the death of a Reaper and she's left holding his scythe. Now thrown into the Reaper world and feeling out of her depth, she has to content with the other 3 head reapers who don't seem very pleased.
Conah is so sweet and helpful, but wow is there a revelation at the end that really made me want to smack him.
Mal is the typical obnoxious man whore, who loves nothing more than to insult and wind up Fee, but she just can't help drooling over him anyway.
Azazel is mysterious, with a questionable link to Fee's past.
Fee is such a likeable character, she is sympathetic to other, loyal to her friends but doesn't let anyone walk over her. She threw herself into situations without much thought, which was quite often reckless, but she’s managed to survive so far.
I was really pulled into the world, there was a huge amount of information to learn, and although I'm not sure I took it all in, I loved the story anyway and can't wait to see where the story goes.

The narrator Keira Stevens does an excellent job, bringing emotion and feelings to the story.

Definitely recommend

Exceptional new paranormal series. The world building is outstanding and the characters are moving and authentic. There are plot twists all over the place that keep you turning the pages as fast as you can. The FMC is sharp and soulful. This was a highly addictive read and I can’t wait for the next book.

The narration was excellent and made this a very enjoyable audiobook. Really brought the story to life. Definitely recommend.

Great first in the series!

This was a brilliant start to what I know will be a great series. There was so much happening in the story, so many great characters and twists and turns that had me thinking “just one more chapter...” until there was nothing left! The narrator did a great job. Lovely voice, easy on the ear, and a great variance in tone so I could hear clear distinctions between all the different characters. This was a great listen, looking forward to the next one.
