When her father is murdered Calliope Reaper Jones must take over and run the family business but there are those that want her gone and not only from Death Inc. but from life itself. Can Calliope find her way to happiness and balance it all before her enemies win, will zombies take over the world? As Calliope must deal with her enemy she leaves Death Inc. in capable hands but it seems in her absence strange things begin to occur.

From action to emotions this book has it all. I truly enjoyed this story. There was character development and surprises along the way. I love Calliope, she is a strong woman who must take what is dealt her and she makes the best of it. She is strong and does all that she can. Calliope grows as a person and is ready and willing to take her destiny in hand. This is a fun and fast paced read that has twists and turns that kept me turning the pages to see what would come next pus an ending that I did not see coming.

This is the fifth book in the series but it is easy to catch on even if you have not read the series yet but as always reading the books in order only enhances your pleasure. The author is doing a good job of keeping the story fresh and entertaining enough to have you wanting to make a return visit to this world as soon as possible.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
