What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
It’s never a good combo to be broke and desperate. You do stupid things. Like accidentally sign your soul over to Hell.
When I interviewed for a new security job, I didn’t bat an eye that it was for a literal graveyard shift…headstones and all. I mean, at the hourly rate they were offering, who cares? I got this.
Turns out, I’m not guarding a graveyard like I thought. It seems I’ve just walked my broke ass into protecting a Gate to Hell. Yeah…I don’t got this.
Now I’m stuck in a terrifying new reality: a group of hot demons who act like I can solve all their problems, and a battle between good, evil, and balance.
This will seriously teach me to read the fine print on Help Wanted ads. Good thing this job comes with a scythe. Maybe I can use it to stop them from dragging my ass into Hell.
Thoughts on Grave Mistakes
As of this writing, I have LOVED everything that Raven Kennedy and/or Ivy Asher have released. Their minds concoct worlds that have captured me and characters that have enthralled me. Writing together?? SIGN ME UP!
This book slaps onto the page with verve and relatable humor, introducing Delta and her unlucky situation in a way that draws you into the story with delicate talent – and fist to the face wit. She’s just this side of dangerous and just that side of snarky – added together, it makes for a well rounded foundation that carries this tale from beginning to end, especially after she meets the illusive ‘owners’ of the graveyard gate she is meant to be guarding.
I think one of the things I enjoyed most about Delta was her personal honesty. She’s a bad@ss, yes…. but she doesn’t really KNOW that, and her fear speaks loudly in the quiet of her mind. She has flaws and foibles like the rest of us, and this narrative doesn’t shy away from that truth. It makes her more approachable than many FMC’s in PNR stories, offering her a sense of ‘realness’, even if there are moments you might want to smack her.
Exciting, original and wonderfully concocted, this is a gem – and with the rapid release, you can dive into the entire tale right now!
For the broke bitches. May you find hot demons at the end of your struggle. (0%)
