Fed up with her wild behavior, sixteen-year-old Lex's parents ship her off to upstate New York to live with her Uncle Mort for the summer, hoping that a few months of dirty farm work will whip her back into shape.

But Uncle Mort's true occupation is much dirtier than shoveling manure. He's a Grim Reaper. And he's going to teach Lex the family business.

She quickly assimilates into the peculiar world of Croak, a town populated by reapers who deliver souls from this life to the next. But Lex can't stop her desire for justice - or is it vengeance? - whenever she encounters a murder victim, craving to stop the attackers before they can strike again.

Will she ditch Croak and go rogue with her reaper skills?


Croak was a fun read for me. Lex has to deal with being sent to live with her Uncle for the summer. She didn’t want to go, at all. She finds that she actually likes it in Croak. She’s good at what she does. She has to figure out what is going on when a string of mysterious deaths begin happening. There may also be a cute boy. 😉

I loved the town of Croak. It’s unique and peculiar. Every person in the town has a job, and the only people that live there are reapers. I loved learning all the different aspects of Croak. Everything from the people that live there to the drinks that are served at the local watering hole.

This is a fun book, and pretty short listen. The narrator did a great job, and I can’t wait to read the next in this series.
