When it comes to death and love…only one is guaranteed.
Four decades ago Nora died. A tragic event for someone so young; however, four decades ago Nora was also given a second chance to walk among the living.
A Death Warden with a mysterious past, her job is to escort the newly expired towards the light, battling with the Soul Hunters who want the freshly dead to help with their own evil purposes buried in the dark.
When Nora’s charges suddenly become targets, she realizes that the hunters are after far more than just souls. A shift in power between good and evil threatens to change everything, risking the lives of the only family Nora has ever known.
Devastated and angry, she’s forced to face the man she once loved – a man who chose darkness over her – in order to find the answers she needs to stop the horror from escalating. Yet, while a lost relationship still haunts her broken heart, a new Warden with secrets of his own will enter the mix and quickly alter everything Nora believed to be true.
Death is unavoidable…but sometimes, so is love.

Review: I love paranormal books, especially YA paranormal. I love finding books that have a new twist on the whole paranormal scene and this book did that. It’s like a breath of fresh air. I feel like the paranormal genre is being overdone and it’s hard to find a decent book. When I saw this on NetGalley I liked the cover right away and then I read the synopsis and really wanted to dive in, but I was hesitant just because I have started so many new paranormal books and been let down. When I was approved for this book, I let it sit on my Kindle for about a week before I made myself try it out and I am so glad I did. The story starts with meeting Nora, who is dead and is a death warden. The best way to describe a death warden is basically think of a grim reaper but no all scary. Nora’s job is to look after the people who are going to die and prepare them for it, in a way. When they die she is there and her job is to get them to cross over, but there is something out there called soul hunters who want to get the souls before they cross over and make them one of them. Soul hunters feed off people and their souls, really creepy. To make Nora’s job worse is who old fling and the man who taught her everything is now a soul hunter and he always there when she is trying to get souls to cross over. I really don’t want to give any more away, you end meeting great characters and Ms. Garr does a great job building them up. The best part about reading this was when I was done and I was like ” wow, I wish I was dead and was a death warden”, yep I said that ha ha. I am very excited for the next book in this series! and can’t wait to see what happens to everyone!
