I went into this not knowing what to expect at all, and boy was I surprised.
The plot is simple, Kaah, also known as The Reaper, also known as Death is retiring. And he’s going to need a place to settle down. Accompanied by his trusty goblin sidekick, Kaah does the best he can trying to adapt to civilian life, and a kind of human interaction he’s not at all used to.
One of Sullivan’s strengths his definitely diversity. Her writing and story goes from dark and dreary to humorous to sexy all in the same paragraph. I was often reminded of the TV-show Supernatural, it has that kind of down to earth vibe.
I’m going to go ahead and guess that I’m not the target audience for this particular type of story, and though I did love the mystery, it’s probably aimed at someone who’s more partial to romance. I did enjoy that Sullivan managed to blend the two genres so well though, while at the same time keeping it light and funny.
Recommended to anyone who’s looking for a supernatural and funny romance.
