READ ON FOR EXCERPTS:


EXCERPT
“Listen, kid, I don’t care what you believe in. It’s not for me to say what’s true and untrue, real or unreal. My assignment was you. You get to be one of us, if you want it. Otherwise, you move on, life is over, kaput.”
Ophelia backed away from the stranger. For the first time, she realized she didn’t feel cold and wasn’t shivering. Is this what being dead was like? “One of you?”
“A grim reaper.” He held out his hand to properly introduce himself. “Edon Montgomery, head reaper and old soul.”


EXCERPT
Ophelia took two steps back away from her corpse, her chest heaving. “What just happened?” The darkened figure took off in the opposite direction. “Get back here!” she shouted and found herself unable to catch her breath. She hyperventilated. This could not be happening. It wasn't real. It must be a horrible dream. She pinched her arm but didn't wake up.

“Hell of a way for a princess to die.” The older gentleman stepped out from the shadows, his feet crunching on leaves. “It's your lucky day though.”


EXCERPT
“This is a new kind of hell. One for the living,” she said under her breath. Her eyes moved over the locked rooms and she followed closely behind Edon. “Is this really where crazy people go?” She'd heard of an asylum, but had never seen one, let alone stepped foot inside one.

“I wouldn't use that word around here.” Edon kept his voice barely above a whisper. “Just stick with me, and you'll be fine.”
