I quite liked the story, it had some funny parts that made me chuckle, but the narrator was just so boring. Her voice is so flat and dull that it was a struggle to stay awake at times, and to be honest made a good story hard to follow at times - difficult to pay attention to something that makes you want to nod-off.
I hadn't heard of this before prior to seeing it come up for review, but I loved the sound of it and eagerly started. Well, i'm so happy to say that this was fantastic. Such a fun yet addictive read!
The plot was fast paced and gripping. It centers around a family of reapers who collect the souls on their list. Aisling is the only girl in the family of boys and she never intended to be part of the "family business", yet when she loses her job she has no other choice. She is only on the job a few days when souls that aren't on the lists are being taken, not only that, but some of her souls are been taken! She realises that somw wraiths have entered their territory and are stealing souls. She needs to find out who their master is and stop them before it's too late. During this time, she becomes a suspect in "murders" that keep happening around her. Detective Taylor is intent on finding the culprit but keeps coming back to Aisling Grimlock, how is she involved?
The characters were fantastic!!! I loved every single one of them. Aisling was funny, strong, independent and did I mention funny!!! Jerry is Aislings gay roommate who has the hots for her brother, I adored Jerry!! So fun yet a rock for Aisling. The Grimlock brothers were all amazing too, each of them were so protective of Aisling and would do anything for each other. The enigmatic Detective Taylor was a surprise love interest for Aisling, yet it works well. I loved the dynamics between them and look forward to seeing where their relationship goes.
Anyway, this was such a fun and snarky book. I found myself giggling and snickering a lot and ended up listening to it within 2 days. I couldn't get enough of this family and their business!! I can not wait for the next installment of this witty and addicting series.
Karen Krause did a great job with the voices. I never had a problem following who was talking. She gave each character their own personalities and I really enjoyed her narration.

This is a great book written by Amanda Lee; this is the first book in the An Aisling Grimlock Mystery series. Aisling Grimlock is not having a good week. After being laid off from her job, she has no choice but to start working for her families business which is being a full time grim reaper. It is now her job to collect and transfer souls to the hereafter. She now has to work closely with her overbearing older brothers and her father on a daily basis. On her second day of the job a wraith steals the sole she is supposed to collect.
The narrator Karen Krause did a great job with this book, and was very easy to listen to. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to in one sitting and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.
If you are looking for a great book with humor, and great characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.
A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.
