Uh oh. I’m in trouble.

I’m reviewing this book, and I can barely remember a thing about it.

Granted, I didn’t exactly read this yesterday, so it might be that time is working against my memory. But I think the more likely reason why I couldn’t remember much about this book is there’s not much worth remembering.

The idea itself was super cool: teenagers selling their souls for things like fame and fortune and immortality. I enjoyed how we got to see more of Tod and the reaper world. But everything else is dull and underwhelming, and, as much as I wanted to like the idea of hellions and the Underworld, I grew more bored and tired of it than intrigued.

The characters weren’t very special, either; again, I liked Tod, and I liked how we got to see more of Nash’s mom (she’s so cool) and Kaylee’s (I had to look up her name again) dad, but most of the book is spent in the company of Kaylee, Nash, Addison, and Emma, and they just weren’t exciting enough to hold my attention or interest.

I don’t want to bore you, too, so I’ll be brief: I was disappointed by this one, but in the this-is-kind-of-boring-and-I’m-not-invested way. I’m seriously considering not reading the next book.
