"For the last few years I'd been in a state of bliss--living under a self-imposed Forgetting Charm, because I so did not want to go into the family business. What I wanted was a glamorous career in New York City and the opportunity for a normal life--buying designer shoes on sale, dating guys from craigslist, Web surfing for organic dim sum for my boss. And then my father's Executive Assistant, a faun named Jarvis, showed up to tell me that my dad had been kidnapped. Good-bye, Forgetting Charm. Hello, (unwanted) responsibility."--P. [4] of cover.… (mer)

I liked this book--the audiobook was read by the author, who did a nice job with the narration. It was cute and sometimes funny, although the main character was occasionally annoying and a bit mercurial--although most of us probably are, from time to time. ;) I liked the idea--Death is kidnapped and his daughter must reluctantly take up the job. Other characters were interesting and fun. The plot was convoluted (not in a bad way) but sometimes seemed to wander off-track. Very much a mixed-bag for me. If you like light urban fantasy and quippy dialogue, give it a try! ( )

Putting this back on the "to read" shelf for now. I just can't get into this book. The main character is extremely annoying. Maybe I'll try again later, but there are too many books I'd rather be reading.

The daughter of the Grim Reaper gets pulled back into the supernatural realm when her father is kidnapped.

This book is a passable way to spend a lazy afternoon; the emotional tone is a little scattered but it doesn't hinder the flow of the plot. There is a character who turns out to be two people — one who is assuming someone else's appearance — and the dual personality didn't strike me until it was pointed out in the narrative because the main character was cycling through witty repartee, fatal injury, self-doubt, bravado, and lust with enough frequency that I wasn't expecting consistency out of any other character, either.

I liked the nerdy references to various non-human characters from different mythologies. Kali ("black, dark coloured") calling the protagonist "white girl" is pretty clever. ( )

Glad I came across this book. It was a fun read and I enjoyed it's lightheartedness. I will most certainly continue with the series. ( )

Oh, I am saddened by this book. I adore Amber Benson and I thought this would be a fun and interesting book. No. The main character is shallow and floofy, the writing is terrible, and the plot predictable. A fail ( )
