Ever since a near-death-experience on the operating table, seventeen-year-old Arianne Wilson can see dead people. Just as she’s learned to accept her new-found talents, she discovers that the boy she’s had a crush on since freshman year, Niko Clark, is a Reaper. At last they have something in common, but that doesn’t mean life is getting any easier. All while facing merciless bullying from the most powerful girl in school, Arianne’s world is turned upside down after Niko accidentally reaps the soul of someone she loves. This sends them both into a spiral that threatens to end Arianne’s life. But will Niko break his own Reaper’s code to save her? And what would the consequences be if he did?

Ms Evangelista did it again!  She has crafted another fine book.  It's books like these that gets me hungry for the young adult genre and this particularly has given me a head-turn toward paranormal.  I'm glad that this is going to be a trilogy because I get to read more!! 

The author has an exquisite way with words and storytelling.  I was sucked in very early on.  I liked the sisterhood bond right off the bat.  A book with heart is my thing so it was off to a good start for me.  Throw in school teen chaos, overcoming romance, and reaping jurisdictions/rules and you've got yourself a sapid paranormal read. 

I'm hooked!  There were definite characters that I loved and those I disliked.  There were fabulous twists and shockers that got me screaming, "NOOOOOO!" (now I see the arrival and accurateness of the book title and what's going on with the blindfold scenario on the cover).  Hence, such reaction is telling of the involvement that this book can have on a reader.  In other words, one can get invested!

Fantastic characters, endearing love story, and simply a winsome read.  Give it a try.
