Buy it here. Now.
Because I'm about to spoil the hell out of the first book.
So it's been a year for me since I had the agony of the first book ending. But it's only been a few days for Tavin. He is now Death (WHAT??!!!) and is being "trained" by a psycho woman who enjoys pain and torturing him.
Tavin is starting to make a little sense of where he fits and who his friends are (or are they????).
Then a puppy throws everything into chaos. A freaking puppy is the undoing of Death. But who doesn't a puppy undo? Seriously. Writing gold there. I am so in love with Strickland's world and Lifeless catapulted her into the upper echelon of YA authors. The world-building alone is worthy of an award. But add in Tavin with his oh-so-many layers of Tavin?
Can. Not. Get. Enough.
Hate. Having. To. Wait. Another. Freaking. Year.
I'm afraid to write any more about the book because I won't be able to stop and then I'll have ruined it for you. So go on and buy it. And read every single word. Because if you skip a paragraph, you're behind and you will have to go back and read it again anyway.
