Review: Once Dead, Twice Shy by Kim Harrison

My name is Madison Avery, and I'm here to tell you that there's more out there than you can see, hear, or touch. Because I'm there. Seeing it. Touching it. Living it.

Madison's prom was killer—literally. For some reason she's been targeted by a dark reaper—yeah, that kind of reaper—intent on getting rid of her, body and soul. But before the reaper could finish the job, Madison was able to snag his strange, glowing amulet and get away.

Now she's stuck on Earth—dead but not gone. Somehow the amulet gives her the illusion of a body, allowing her to toe the line between life and death. She still doesn't know why the dark reaper is after her, but she's not about to just sit around and let fate take its course.

With a little ingenuity, some light-bending, and the help of a light reaper (one of the good guys! Maybe . . . ), her cute crush, and oh yeah, her guardian angel, Madison's ready to take control of her own destiny once and for all, before it takes control of her.

Well, if she believed in that stuff.

Well written, enjoyable characters kept me interested until the very end. I am excited to see where Madison ends up next. I have been a fan of Kim Harrison's Hollows series for a while which made this story an auto buy for me. I am not disappointed in the least. Ms. Harrison has a talent for storytelling that shows in everything she does so I suppose it was only a matter of time before she gave us a YA series. I am confident that I will enjoy Madison Avery for many books to come just as I have enjoyed Rachel Morgan. Highly recommend this book for any fans of The Hollows series.
