Graveyard Shift (Lana Harvey, Reapers Inc. #1) By: Angela Roquet
The Inferno has Evolved… Lana Harvey is a reaper, and a lousy one at that. She resides in Limbo City, the modern capital of the collective afterlives, where she likes to stick it to the man (the legendary Grim Reaper himself) by harvesting the bare minimum of souls required of her. She’d much rather be hanging out with Gabriel, her favorite archangel, at Purgatory Lounge. But when a shocking promotion falls in her lap, Lana learns something that could unravel the very fabric of Eternity. If the job isn’t completed, there could be some real hell to pay.
Reapers are not something you read about often, at least not something I read about often. I think I read an Eve Langlais EROM about one once, but Graveyard Shift was in no way an EROM.
I enjoyed the world Roquet created and the detail she included. She really put forth the effort to have details about several different religions. She made a world that seemed well researched and fleshed out with characters that can’t magically bend the world to their whims.
There were characters I liked but also characters I didn’t. I hate when I read a book with no likable characters or a main lead that’s wishy washy and weak. Lana is definitely not that, she’s figured out exactly what she needs to do to get by in life and just tries to forget about the fact that she can’t do anything to change her lot in life. Sadly for her things keep getting thrust into her life that she’s forced to deal with and overcome.
I liked Graveyard Shift and I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
