Overview

I'm Madison Avery, in charge of heaven's hit squad . . . and fighting it all the way.

When Madison died the night of her prom, she knew her life would never be the same. Now she has a powerful amulet, a team of rogue angels by her side, and the ability to flash forward into the future to see the shape of destiny. And of course, now she's finally with Josh—a perfect boyfriend who doesn't even mind that she's dead.

But being dead has its disadvantages, too. Madison feels caught between the light and the dark, and between her real life and her timekeeper status. When Madison has the opportunity to get her body back—to be alive again—she faces her most difficult decision yet. If she claims it, she could return to being a normal girl—and have a chance at a real relationship with Josh. But would having the one thing she wants most in the world also mean giving up everything she's worked so hard for?

Kim Harrison has made a great, unique YA series with the Madison Avery series. In the third book of the series, Madison Avery is still learning how to be a dark timekeeper. She's not happy with the way that the system works and thinks that she can change things. She begins to doubt herself when it seems like no one believes in her and nothing seems to go the way that she wants it to. Luckily she has Barnabas (the former light reaper), Nakita (a dark reaper), and Josh (her boyfriend) to help her get through it. If you want an easy read that is also unique, I would recommend this series.

Something Deadly This Way Comes by Kim Harrison is a terrific YA read. I hate to see this end, as the story line could go on and on, but this is truly a fitting ending to a wonderful series. Madison has found her niche and we are all comfortable there. Very well done.

I started this series only because it was written by Kim Harrison. This is a well developed world with amazing characters. It is in the YA category but isn't just a YA story. All three books are a great addition to my library. Loved each one!

okay so i read the first two books in this series and they were good. So i amused the third book was going to be good as well...it was a disappointment. it was hard to finish the book with the main character (Madison) being stupid and making dumb choices. buy it if u want but i advise you not too.
