Blurb: Dating is tough… especially when you’re dead.
Max and Kody never really figured life out, and their afterlife isn’t proving any easier. They were supposed to live happily ever after, escorting souls to heaven for the Big Guy—as in God—but then their boss, the mysterious angel Slade, delivered some shocking news about the undead.
Their afterlife just got a lot more complicated.
The appearance of the undead shades can only mean one thing: wraiths—the malevolent incarnation of stranded spirits. But what do they want with Kody? If that wasn’t enough for Max to worry about, Slade makes a cryptic remark about the end of Max and Kody’s relationship—and Max already resents the time Kody spends with Slade.
Kody’s family is still reeling from his death, and his sister is spiraling out of control. She blames their mother, religion, and God. When Kody and Max form a plan to help save her faith and her heart, it could bring the wraiths into the mortal world… and the boys might not have the power to fight them.
Only love can push back the darkness and heal the wounds in their hearts. But sorrow and confusion might drive a wedge between Max and Kody when they need most to stand together.
Review: As with the first book I was thrown with this story. A lot of this story is about Max and Kody worrying about this or that which grew tiresome to me. I was honestly expecting a more action packed book as the setup was given in the first story but it seemed this story was a continuation of a set up.
There is only one action scene and it seemed as though nothing was answered when it ended. So overall this another emotional story about Max and Kody. Some scenes were sweet some were tense. Slade was still his secret self. I seriously hope in the next book this story moves along further than it has.
Too many questions have been left unanswered. I feel as though I’m being strung along, fed bits and pieces of a larger plot so I am looking forward to answers.
An O.K. read.
