Seventeen, dead, and in charge of heaven's dark angels—all itching to kill someone.
Madison Avery's dreams of ever fitting in at her new school died when she did. Especially since she was able to maintain the illusion of a body, deal with a pesky guardian angel, and oh yeah, bring the reaper who killed her to his untimely end. Not exactly in-crowd material. It's amazing that her crush, Josh, doesn't think she's totally nuts.
Now Madison has learned that she's the dark timekeeper, in charge of angels who follow the murky guidelines of fate. Never one to abide by the rules, she decides it's time for a major change to the system. With the help of some unlikely allies, Madison forms a rogue group of reapers who definitely don't adhere to the rules of the heavens.
But as she grapples with the terrifying new skills that come with being a timekeeper, Madison realizes she may not be prepared for what lies ahead—unless she gets some seriously divine intervention.
Yes, this was a perfect book! I loved reading it, I just wanted to read more, it was just so freaking good! I did enjoy the first book more, but yeah, this book was pretty darned great all by itself! Loved to spend more time in this world!
Madison was working through the rules, learning about them, and figuring out the ones that she liked, and the ones she wanted to break, and yeah, that was a lot of fun to read! Not as much going on, and probably short, but still good!
I really am liking this question between free will, and fate, it's reminding me of A Beautiful Dark series by Jocelyn Davies, and yeah, I'm with the group that it's a combination of both that's best. I mean, compromise, because most of the time, both sides have something important to say, a part of them!
Yeah, this was a really good book, enjoyed reading it, and I can't wait for the 3rd and final book!
