Book Description:

Eternity can suck when it’s all work, work, work. Death harvests souls even when they stack up faster than pancakes in an all-you-can-eat-buffet. No wonder she can’t shed the Grim Reaper rep.

As the patron angel of death and dying, Azrael works closely with Death but is dying for true intimacy. She’s the only immortal who’s ever aroused such powerful emotions in him. One taste of her leaves him needing her like humans need air and food, but will a demon’s lies leave a bad taste?

No one escapes Death – except King Sisyphus. Twice. With the help of Damien the demon, Sisyphus tries again, and she’s determined to have justice. Some say Death’s a bitch, but only when she has to be. But will the price of justice be a broken heart?

My review:

This was a short, quick read.  But really enjoyable.  I was hooked from the beginning.

The Death in this story is not your typical hooded figure with a scythe.  She is an immortal but tries to have mercy for those that deserve it.  She knows its their time and their souls have to be taken but tries to do it peacefully.  Only when they argue is it more difficult, then she has a cool bracelet bag of tricks to handle the situation.

Azrael is the one in charge of Death's division.  And has had a crush on Death for a long time, but unsure how to act on it.  Luckily for him Death feels the same way.  Just when it seems like they might overcome their hesitations Damien shows up and starts trouble.  Soon Damien is helping Sisyphus escape his eternal punishment and cause more havic.

Will Death get justice on Damien and Sisyphus.  Will she and Azrael overcome the obstacles set in their path.  These and other issues are all resolved by the end of the story.  

If you are looking for a quick paranormal that is well written and fun to read.  Check this one out.  I am looking forward to more from the author and hopefully entering this world again.
