Kirsty’s afterlife gets even more Hellish in this second installment of The Reluctant Reaper series when her soul-stealing ex-boss targets her beloved aunt. Her only chance to stop him? Becoming a Reaper herself. Fortunately, her hunky new boyfriend, Italian-poet-turned-Reaper Dante Alighieri, is there to help.

Still trapped in the bureaucratic inferno known as Hell, Kirsty d’Arc redoubles her efforts to escape back to the Mortal Coil when she learns Conrad is after the soul of her beloved aunt. To save Aunt Carey, Kirsty must enroll at the Reaper Academy and earn a scythe of her own. Studying topics like Exor-scything 101, Riding the Death Cycle, and Reincarnation for Dummies is strange. But then, so are her classmates: a fallen angel, the Death Valley girls, and Kali—the ancient god of death, destruction, and those little earring backs that always go missing.

Now time is running out thanks to a temporal crisis she may have accidentally created. Can she graduate, rescue her aunt, take down Conrad, and save Hell and every other dimension—before the clock stops ticking?

As the saying goes in Hell, “Be careful what you wish for; it just might get you!”

Sequel to [[ASIN:B00ALYRQE8 The Reluctant Reaper]], which I do think can be read as a stand alone novella because the author included sufficient back-story to understand the sequel. It also contains new characters and has left old ones behind in the first installment. Kirsty and Dante could do with a little more spark from a romantic point of view. The interaction between Kirsty and her new Reapers in spe was often more entertaining than the two supposed lovebirds. The author has a witty sense of humour although I would be careful not to go overboard or wade into the category of superfluous jokes. This one had just the right amount of quips. I think with a little more depth to story, characters and an extra eye to detail that Grant could make this series more popular. I received a free copy of this book via Edelweiss & publisher.

SCYTHE DOES MATTER is the second book in Gina X. Grant's RELUCTANT REAPER paranormal series. In this story, twenty-five-year-old Kirsty d'Arc tries to make something of her afterlife while waiting to appeal her denied wrongful reaping appeal. She decides to attend the Reaper Academy, so she can return to the Mortal Coil and bring back the bewitched stapler that started her fall to the Underworld and proves Conrad Iver, her unscrupulous boss, tricked her into literally signing her life away. I've thoroughly enjoyed this book in the series. Kirsty achieves tremendous growth and discovers an afterlife in which she can provide a useful service that makes her happy. She gains new, quirky friends in reaper school and saves the day when a time sync catastrophe strikes the Underworld. Kirsty and Dante continue their supporting and sometimes rocky relationship, and Kirsty finds her calling as a reaper. The puns don't overwhelm the story in SCYTHE DOES MATTER as they did in the first book, and I laughed out loud at the witty banter between Kirsty and her classmates. Will Kirsty graduate from reaper school? Will she ever get back to her Earthly body and come out of her coma? And will she ever find that elusive, tricky stapler? You'll just have to read SCYTHE DOES MATTER to find out. It's great for the beach, perfect for a study break, and just lots of fun to read. -- Don't miss the next book in the series, ESPRIT DE CORPSE , released in August 2013.-- If You Like This, You May Also Like: --- THE RELUCTANT REAPER and ESPRIT DE CORPSE by Gina X.
