Sixteen-year-old Lex Bartleby is a teenage grim reaper with the bizarre ability to Damn souls. That makes her pretty scary, even to fellow Grims. But after inadvertently transferring her ability to Zara, a murderous outlaw, Lex is a pariah in Croak, the little town she calls home. To escape the townspeople’s wrath, she and her friends embark on a wild road trip to DeMyse. Though this sparkling desert oasis is full of luxuries and amusements, it feels like a prison to Lex. Her best chance at escape would be to stop Zara once and for all—but how can she do that from DeMyse, where the Grims seem mysteriously oblivious to Zara’s killing spree?

Love this series

Great sense of humour, mysteries that catch you by surprise, and characters you fall in love with. This series scratches a lot of itches left after Harry Potter. Make sure you start with the first one though (croak). I accidentally read the first two chapters of the last book and that's mega spoilers.

I love this series!

This book picks up right after Lex see's the death of her twin sister. Zara, a rogue reaper who has a serious vendetta against Lex. Things start to get really rough with explosions hitting Croak, so they head to DeMyse where they hope they will be accepted with friendliness, since they're leaving Croak on bad terms. Even as mayor, Uncle Mort only has so much power in town, but he's hoping his deep roots and connections with the other mayors will be enough to keep them out of danger. I find Gina Damico to be be an amazing writer, with a great sense of humor that had me chuckling from the late at night to the early hours of the morning. I highly recommend this to young readers, as it is a young adult book. Definitely a 5/5 from me.
