Once Dead, Twice Shy by Kim Harrison
This is a series debut for Harrison she is usually an Adult writer and this is the first in a YA series. I have to say it's definitely put together like a Harrison book. The heroine is a strong, take care of herself and everyone else around her type and the plot has lots of twist and turns to it. Just when you think you know where the story is going she swings it in another direction. Madison Avery was murdered but she's still there by choice? fate? She has stolen an amulet that make her appear alive and well. She is being assisted by light angels and hunted down by dark angels. Definitely a fun and interesting read. I kind of wish it was one of her adult series because her adult books average 400 pages and take a day or two to make it through. This took me an afternoon and I was done. I have to say she has a great way of ending books though. Where you want more of the story but don't feel like you walked away in the middle of a conversation and left hanging. Can't wait until the next installment to this series!
