I’m Madison Avery, in charge of heaven’s hit squad . . . and fighting it all the way.

When Madison died the night of her prom, she knew her life would never be the same. Now she has a powerful amulet, a team of rogue angels by her side, and the ability to flash forward into the future to see the shape of destiny. And of course, now she’s finally with Josh—a perfect boyfriend who doesn’t even mind that she’s dead.

But being dead has its disadvantages, too. Madison feels caught between the light and the dark, and between her real life and her timekeeper status. When Madison has the opportunity to get her body back—to be alive again—she faces her most difficult decision yet. If she claims it, she could return to being a normal girl—and have a chance at a real relationship with Josh. But would having the one thing she wants most in the world also mean giving up everything she’s worked so hard for?


Guys! This book was pretty good. I actually enjoyed reading this one. Usually the last book in a series is my least favorite, but when it comes to this trilogy, it’s my favorite.

I can’t tell you why I enjoyed this one more. Surprise, surprise. Why do I write review? I can never tell you what I like or dislike. Anyway, the only thing that got me through the first two were the funny moments and there weren’t really any in this one. Out of the three books, this one is the most serious and the least funny. Maybe that was what I was in the mood for.

Overall, I’m glad I finally read this trilogy, but I probably will never re-read it. However, Kim Harrison is still one of my favorite authors and I will still re-read The Hollows series and give her new series, The Peri Reed Chronicles, a try.

3 out of 5 stars
