It's a Wonderful Death; Sarah J. Schmitt

It's a Wonderful DeathIt's a Wonderful Death by Sarah J. Schmitt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Oh, Terry Pratchett, you have spoiled me. Any DEATH character who DOESN'T SPEAK IN ALL CAPS just somehow pales in comparison. That aside, this version of Death Himself isn't all bad (the Grim Reapers get better lines, though). RJ's fight to correct her untimely death presents her in an unpleasant light and readers may actually root for her to lose her appeal. No spoilers, but if (like me) you like one of the death-based books (Denton Little's Deathdate or the Dead Is... series) this is one of the best in the genre.
