Grim Reaper Leliel made a mistake – she tried to reap the soul of a man who wasn’t dead. Now she has to escort him through the Underworld in an effort to get it back before he turns incorporeal – a fate truly worse than death. But the real challenge is not falling for the young, handsome, funny guy who hates her for destroying his life. No pressure.
Someone is killing unmarked souls, and Ru Roberts is the only one that can stop them. That’s a bit of a problem, though, since she has no idea she’s a Keeper.
When the devastatingly handsome Cutter Michaels comes to town and starts filling Ru’s head with all sorts of fantasies, telling her she’s the daughter of a half-angel and half-demon, and the only one who can help them locate and destroy three portals to hell, she thinks he’s nuts. He says he needs her help to stop the Grim Reapers who are using the portals to ferry souls away, and Ru finds herself being sucked into his delusions.
Once she begins having strange dreams and comes face to face with Thanatos, the most powerful Reaper of all, Ru thinks there might be something to Cutter’s claims. Will joining him help Ru to discover the powers coursing through her veins, or will Thanatos claim her as his own?
