    Throw out any notion you have of the scary, scythe-bearing Grim Reaper and replace it with The Fetch. <BR/><BR/>A Fetch is a death escort, a comforting guide who waits while the soul chooses whether or not to leave its mortal body. Upon choosing death, and yes, it is often a choice, the soul is led by its Fetch through a door into the afterworld. <BR/><BR/>Calder was young for a Fetch, only three-hundred-and-thirty. Had he been doing death scenes a bit longer, say a couple hundred years longer, perhaps he would have recognized the warning signs. As it was, Calder was too preoccupied by the attractive woman he'd left behind on earth during a recent death scene to notice the dangerous path he was embarking upon. <BR/><BR/>When Calder can no longer stand to be apart from the woman he's named Glory, he sets in motion a series of events that upsets a delicate balance and the consequences are felt throughout Heaven and Earth. <BR/><BR/>Set in the time of the Russian Revolution, the author takes us on a journey literally around the world in search of the one key that can open the door to align the two worlds again. Part historical fiction, part paranormal/fantasy, and part love story, THE FETCH is a beautifully written tale of mistakes made and lessons learned, both in life and in death.

    My RRRReview! ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^

    I loved it. I would spend all night reading it, but the only thing you need to look out for was how she twisted God and Heaven.

    I was extremely satisfied with this book, at first I was somewhat skeptical and thought it wasn't going to be that great but man was I wrong! This book made me so sad sometimes but other times it made me so darn happy. I loved the characters, the writing, and the story, oh the story! This book is historical fiction/love story/about the afterlife all wrapped up into this bundle of awesomeness disguised as a book, with a really neat cover. :)<BR/>I'll admit in the beginning I was kinda thinking "hmm get to it already," but then it suddenly grabbed me and I could NOT stop reading it until I finished it (at some point I unfortunately had to take a break to do hw though, but man was I in agony for being taken away from such a great book). I LOVE books about life after death and this one is really really good at giving a unique idea of what it's like up there and about reapers, called fetches, who escort the dead to heave. I also adored the fact that this book was about the Imperial family of Russia, the Romanovs, which include the well known Anastasia.<BR/>The main characters are the awesome fetch, Calder, Anastasia, her little brother Alexei, but in the book his name's different, it's Alexis, I really had an issue with that but I got over it, Rasputin a.k.a Father Grigori. :) They all go through some crazy/neat adventures in order to try and get to heaven. Oh gosh and another thing I really liked about this book was that many of the details about Anastasia, Alexis, and Rasputin are actually facts, some things are really creepy though. You know how there were two bodies missing from the site where the Romanov family had been murdered? Well, this book really gives an incredible explanation for what happened to those bodies and also the reason for many of the crazy myths surrounding Rasputin's life, it's just so darn cool. Oh and another thing, there were many other characters in the book that were actually real people, like for example Rasputin's real life murders, the sailer-guardian of Alexis, the family, and probably some others. I would recommend reading up on Anastasia's life before reading this book (I already knew quite a bit since I read this history book about her life quite a few years ago, but some things I recently found out) because if you do, it will make you go "oh my god! that happened in real life, wow! this book is a really good theory for what happened" :) ..well except for the fact that recently in July, I believe, 2008, two bodies were discovered, one is Alexei's the other either Anastasia's or Maria's (one of the sisters). Either way that doesn't really take much of the "magic" and awesomeness from the book away. :)<BR/>The ending was also something else. I know quite a few people who will get a bit angry with it, but I love the fact that it's not predictable or the same as all these other books, it makes this book different and helps it stand out even more.
