Sixteen-year-old Lex Bartleby is a teenage grim reaper with the bizarre ability to damn souls. That makes her pretty scary, even to fellow Grims. But after inadvertently transferring her ability to Zara, a murderous outlaw, Lex is a pariah in Croak, the little town she calls home.
To escape the townspeople’s wrath, she and her friends embark on a wild road trip to DeMyse. Though this sparkling desert oasis is full of luxuries and amusements, it feels like a prison to Lex. Her best chance at escape would be to stop Zara once and for all—but how can she do that from DeMyse, where the Grims seem mysteriously oblivious to Zara’s killing spree?
Lex definitely isn’t the same after the events that happen in Croak. Trouble seems to follow her everywhere, and Zara seems to be one step ahead all the time. Not only is Lex and her group of friends trying to keep away from Zara, but the jerks in her town turn on them and want their heads.
DeMyse is a Grim town completely different that Croak. Everything is flashy and full of life. But the mayor DeMyse has his own secrets, and they could be damning (literally).
So many surprises in this book, and the ending…. I must get my hands on Rogue soon!
