I'm a big fan of Kim Harrison and I've always looked forward to her Hollows novels, so I never understood why I had never read her YA novels. For some odd reason, I thought they were about vampires, having never read the blurbs even. My initial reaction was... it's ok. Not my favorites, and not as bad as some urban fantasy I've read, but definitely not at the top of my list. Hell, it's still a sight better than some installments from one of my heavily looking-forward-to urban fantasy authors.

That being said, the novel itself requires more than just a tiny bit of reading comprehension skills, so perhaps it is simultaneously too much for the worst YA readers and too simple for the best. It just didn't have the right mix. I think I would have enjoyed it much more had she written it for her adult audiences with the appropriate extra angst and gore and consequences. The basic concepts reminded me of Bleach with a bit more time travel mixed in. Pretty interesting, all told.

The rest of the teenager stuff I could always do without, but that's the nature of YA reading. I'm not judging against it.

There was just ... something ... that needed to happen, that didn't. Otherwise, I enjoyed the nice powerups and twists.

Madison Avery died on her prom night. Targeted by a dark reaper, she died at the bottom of a ravine when her car flipped into it. But Madison's soul stole it's amulet before the reaper could take her. Now she's living with the appearance of a body thanks to her stolen amulet. She's able to carry on her normal life...sort of. But the dark reapers are after her. They want the amulet back and her soul.

Kim Harrison has a tendency to information dump in her first book of a series. It's just her particular style of world building, to throw it all out front for people to see. While this is a huge pet peeve of mine, The Hollows series taught me that Kim has a lot more to offer in books that continue the series. But this time I have to take a star away for it. Madison is given the world building information early on in the story. Ok fine, I expected it. But then Madison repeats this same information, almost word for word with another character later on. This is a waste of page space and my time.

Madison is a repetitive and whiney character. She plunges headfirst into situations even when she knows the results are going to end up a disaster. I wouldn't mind such tendencies if there was a decent storyline to follow. This is targeted towards the younger side of YA, with the fact Madison is more concerned with catching a cute guy than keeping her head above water.

And talk about annoying characters...Grace is horrible. Madison is assigned a guardian angel to try and hide her from the dark reapers. It talks in limericks and acts like an immature child. I think Grace was supposed to be the comic relief, pulling pranks to keep Madison from getting into trouble, but every time I saw her dialogue pop up, I wanted to just skip the lines. Again, I am not the targeted audience and I won't be too harsh on my rating because of it. I will not be continuing the series. ( )

Madison is dead after she was killed by a timekeeper and takes his amulet for her own. There's lots of confusion as Madison tries to live with her new life, find her body and avoid being killed. Fate versus Free Will.

I wasn't sure about this book for the first two thirds, but by the end the concept got interesting. I might pick up the next in the series - it's a quick read and was entertaining even if not great. ( )
