*REVIEW* Something Deadly This Way Comes
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?
Something Deadly This Way Comes is the third and final installment in the Madison Avery Trilogy by Kim Harrison. Another super fast read, this book provides a satisfying conclusion to Madison's story.
This book picks up with Madison and her crew after their success in saving a person's soul AND life, something that had been deemed impossible for thousands of years. Madison flash forwards into a terrifying scene--a teenage girl, Tammy, watches as her little brother's dead body is brought out of a burning apartment building. This event triggers a downward spiral in Tammy's life that leads to her soul being lost and her life having no meaning. Can Madison save both Tammy's life and her soul? Complications arise as the seraphs interfere and other reapers enter the game. A game that's ultimate prize could be Tammy's soul.
Madison, her reapers, and some other friends are on a race against time and fate itself. Thrown into the mix? Madison has found her body and has a major choice to make--does she claim her body and risk her dark timekeeper status or does she give up the one thing she wants more than anything else? Life sure isn't easy when you're dealing with angels, fate, and your own death.
This book was very satisfying and if you've been toying with the idea of reading this series, I HIGHLY recommend you do so. The books are all super easy and quick reads and you'll find yourself rooting for Madison and company. I really like the concept of this book with the whole choice versus fate debate. My only complaint with this book was that by the end, I had already forgotten some parts of it. It just didn't stick with me. And since it's such a fast read, that is saying something.
All in all, this series is cute and enjoyable. Grab it up if you haven't! You could read all three in a weekend and you'd be happy you did. Enjoy! *XOXO*
