Description (taken from Gina Damico's website):
What comes after the Afterlife?

Teenage Grim Reaper Lex’s power to Damn souls is getting out of control. Her boyfriend, Driggs, is dead . . . sort of. She's a fugitive, on the run from the maniacal new mayor of Croak and the townspeople who want to see her pay the price for her misdeeds. Uncle Mort rounds up the Junior Grims to flee Croak once again, but this time they're joined by Grotton, the most powerful Grim of all time. Their new mission is clear: fix his mistakes, or the Afterlife will cease to exist, along with all the souls in it.

The gang heads for Necropolis, the labyrinth-like capital city of the Grimsphere. There, they discover that the Grimsphere needs a reboot. To do that, the portals to the Afterlife must be destroyed...but even that may not be enough to fix the damage. Things go from bad to worse, and when at last the fate of the Afterlife and all the souls of the Damned hang in the balance, it falls to Lex and her friends to make one final, impossible choice.

Okay, so I thought Croak was one of the cutest, quirkiest books involving grim reapers out there.  It holds a special place in my heart.  But Scorch made me feel ripped off.  I didn't care too much for it.  And I'm crossing my fingers, toes, and arms that this third novel will be good.  Don't let me down Lex...

On another note, has anyone saw the new Mortal Instruments movie?  Is it good?


  1. I haven't read the first two in this series. I love the covers though.

  2. I've heard of the first one, but I didn't even realize it was a series. Oops. ;) I want to read it now! Great sounding blurb.
