LISA'S REVIEW: Death has a Daughter (Candice Burnett)

Death Has A Daughter
by Candice Burnett

Cendall, history’s first female Grim Reaper, has until her eighteenth birthday to prove she’s worthy of the role. The only obstacle in her way are those pesky Guardian Angels who protect human souls, but Cendall is certain she can handle any Guardian who gets in her way. 
However, nothing could have prepared Cendall for Lacie—a soul that is protected by multiple Guardians, wanted by Demons, and, most startling of all, can see Cendall. 
Cendall uses every trick in the book to try and slip past Lacie’s Guardians and collect her soul, but a Demon interferes at the last moment. In the chaos, Cendall accidently saves Lacie’s soul, along with one of the injured Guardians. Realizing Cendall fears termination for her mistake, the Guardian blackmails her with an offer she can’t refuse: in exchange for his silence, Cendall must keep Lacie’s soul safe from the Demon, until he recovers from his injuries. Cendall agrees—with the intention of checking Lacie’s soul off her list, the instant the Guardian is healed. But as the three of them are forced to work together, Cendall begins to question why Lacie is wanted by the Demons and if her name actually belonged on Cendall’s list in the first place.

How fun of a book idea. I am so happy that I got the chance to read such a unique book. I love the grim reaper idea and that a strong female is the grim reaper in this book. Following her in her life as a grim reaper is quite interesting. Then the plot thickens with twist and turns, drama, and morals coming to surface. I don't want to give away anything but I think this book has really good potential. It is a little too descriptive in places it does not need to be and drags out in places but, overall a really good start to what is a really promising series. Cendall is a great character and watching her develop in this story is great. I am excited for the next book. Not just to see what happens with all the characters but to see where this author is going to take this series. I really like it and I hope to read more of this authors work!
