Blurb: Teenage grim reapers Max and Kody are already dealing with being dead… and now they’re expected to save the world.
With the help of their guardian angel, Slade, and each other, Max and Kody have finally discovered the destiny God planned for them—help the lost souls languishing in purgatory back to heaven. But they’re still growing into their roles. Kody, the Healer, struggles to understand the power born of his empathy, and Max’s abilities as Protector suffer because of longing for his best friend… along with Slade’s dire prediction that Max will lose Kody. So many are depending on them, and they’ll have to summon all the love and faith inside them to face a mass school shooting and bring love and hope to those who need it most.
Review: Max and Kody will have to face their fears and overcome them to help the lost souls they are destined to help. The path is not easy as both struggle individually. I liked the story but at times I felt it was repetitious especially when explaining the crossing over aspect. I loved how Kody and Max grew as a couple and truly learned how to use their powers in unison.
Max struggles with the absence of his best friend and the thought of losing Kody. Kody struggles with his fear of the shades. Together with help from Slade and their friends they discover love is greater than any fear they could have. They grow closer as the story progresses.
An enjoyable read about reapers and those they are tasked with helping.
