This was such an amazingly sweet story. I was hooked almost immediately. Nyra is a guardian angel whose been assigned to watch over Gregan who was hit by a drunk driver named Mark Jeffries. Her assignments come from the place of accounting where the other angels are. When Death entered Gregan’s hospital room to take him, she argued for his life. Death had seen her crying and left. Something had changed him. She did. He had never seen an angel cry before. He didn’t take Gregan but returned everyday to check on him and to see Nyra. When he was in human form he told her he was Gregan’s brother. When it was time for Death to do his job, the names of the people he would have to take appeared on his arm like a tattoo. As long as Gregan was alive, his name stayed on Death’s arm getting darker everyday as a reminder.
The story shifts back and forth from Nyra’s point of view to Death’s, which I thought added extra neatness to the story. Also chapter 13 was Death’s chapter. Very clever. There’s a good amount of interest with the story as Nyra interacts with Death and he shows some heart or human emotion. He doesn’t like his job and begins to save a few of the people whose names show up on his arm. A little girl named Kenzie Mills whose mother’s name came up was able to see him and she knew who he was and asked him to save her mother. This was sweet. Another was Rosemary Abbott who was glad to see him as she was ready to go home to be with her loved ones. He remembered her because he had taken her husband several years before. Each time he takes someone, he can see their lives flash before him.
Nyra spends her fair share of saving lives as well while keeping vigil at Gregan’s bedside even after she is dismissed from him for arguing for a life. Her and Death slowly begin to have feelings for one another. His only problem is that whenever she asked him his name he told her it was Devon. But in the end love always prevails.
Michele Carpenter’s performance was outstanding. She had the perfect voice for this audiobook. Soft and sweet for Nyra and boyish for Death. There are a few places in this audiobook that I won’t give away that all I can say is WOW with Michele’s voice. She is a wonderful voice actor and I hope to listen to more from her in the future. I definitely recommend checking this audiobook out.
