Once Dead, Twice Shy by Kim Harrison on sale

May 26th, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


I’ve been wanting to read this one for awhile now and it is finally available!  Anyone read it already? What did you think?

Description from the HarperCollins site:

My name is Madison Avery, and I’m here to tell you that there’s more out there than you can see, hear, or touch. Because I’m there. Seeing it. Touching it. Living it.

Madison’s prom was killer—literally. For some reason she’s been targeted by a dark reaper—yeah, that kind of reaper—intent on getting rid of her, body and soul. But before the reaper could finish the job, Madison was able to snag his strange, glowing amulet and get away.

Now she’s stuck on Earth—dead but not gone. Somehow the amulet gives her the illusion of a body, allowing her to toe the line between life and death. She still doesn’t know why the dark reaper is after her, but she’s not about to just sit around and let fate take its course.

With a little ingenuity, some light-bending, and the help of a light reaper (one of the good guys! Maybe . . . ), her cute crush, and oh yeah, her guardian angel, Madison’s ready to take control of her own destiny once and for all, before it takes control of her.

Well, if she believed in that stuff.

    I saw a positive review of this book… I plan to read it, but I am not a huge Harrison fan so it won’t be a rush…

    I’m seeing mixed reviews so it’s on my list but no rush now.
