Death comes for everyone eventually, but Izzy Maitland plans to live forever. At nearly eighteen years old, it’s not an unreasonable goal, but Fate has other plans. Izzy has a car accident. A bad one. Suddenly, strange things start happening and her ordinary life is turned upside down. She wakes up tasting blood, more often than not, and her injuries heal at an alarming rate. Her friends and family weaken, and ever yday, Izzy grows stronger. Strangest of all, she seems to have acquired a stalker, and he might be the Angel of Death.
This book was recommended to me by a friend and I’m glad I picked it up.
I really enjoyed this book it had great pace, not too slow and not too fast. I enjoyed the story and the characters, some more than others. It had plenty of action, humor and some nice twist and turns in it.
I liked Izzy, she was a strong character and didn’t crack under pressure, and she did what had to be done, no matter what it could mean to her. Though she had moments where see seemed a little childish but giving the things she is going through it was forgivable.
Asher was also very likeable in his very old immortal ways, it was hard not rooting for him. While at time he seemed stiff, he also let through his humorous side on occasion.
Grim and Gwen could not have been better counterparts to Asher and Izzy; I liked them both way too much. They gave the story some nice laughs and a nice spin.
Overall it was a great read and a great spin on the whole Grim Reaper and Death story. I know now why they say: you shouldn’t tempt or screw with Fade 😉
The end was cruel, heartbreaking and yet beautiful in a way and I cannot wait to see how the story continues.
I rate the book at 4★

“Behold, the Angel of Death….. reduced to being a panty-sniffing pervert”
“It’s not ok, Iz. There is a dead woman sitting between the bananas and the freaking cherry tomatoes!”
“Neat Trick. It’s adorable; looks like something the wicked witch live in. We won’t fond the Big, Bad Wolf in there?”
“Do not be silly. He lives elsewhere”
“You might be an angel, but I still think you’re an asshole”
