Afterlife management is a tricky business, especially for a living soul broker.
Juggling normal life with her otherworldly responsibilities—like helping departed souls cross to the other side while collecting grief from the living through her empathetic connection—just got a whole lot more complicated for Vivian Bedford. Her guardian spirit bosses, who make the mafia look tame, don’t like the side jobs she’s been taking to help living souls in peril.
But they don’t know the half of it.
She’s been working in secret with Lazarus Darkmore, a grim reaper and unlikely ally against the guardians’ hold on her. When a rogue guardian sends an ominous message that threatens to expose the alliance unless she stops, she has no choice but to put her trust in the reaper. But can a creature as dark and terrifying as Darkmore keep her safe, or will his appetite for cruelty and terror be her undoing?
With a spirit world energy crisis looming and guardian spirits closing in, Vivian must choose—toe the line with the guardians, plunge into darkness with the reaper, or join a rebellion that could unleash hell on earth.

Wow – so much happening in this the second book in the series. There was a focus on Vivian’s abilities and how it affected both her and her friends as well as how that affected her emotions and relationships. I loved the relationship between Vivian and Darkmore and how that developed through the various events. Everything was well written and easy to feel and understand. It does end of a kind of a cliffhanger and that was just wow – can’t wait to see what happens now.
