Cash is haunted by things. Hungry, hollow things. They only leave him alone when Anaya, Heaven’s beautiful reaper, is around. Cash has always been good with girls, but Anaya isn’t like the others. She’s dead. And with his deteriorating health, Cash might soon be as well.
Anaya never breaks the rules, but the night of the fire she recognized part of Cash’s soul—and doomed him to something worse than death. Cash’s soul now resides in an expired body, making him a shadow walker—a rare, coveted being that can walk between worlds. A being creatures of the underworld would do anything to get their hands on.
The lines between life and death are blurring, and Anaya and Cash find themselves falling helplessly over the edge. Trapped in a world where the living don’t belong, can Cash make it out alive?
What I Liked: The cover hits the nail on the head, love it! This is a story about love, loss, redemption and new life. It has a dual POV, detailed world-building, engaging dialogue and swoonworthy kissing, because you know I am a fan of the kissing!
Both Cash and Anaya are strong characters fighting a battle of good versus evil, something that doesn't come easy for Cash and often times involves himself as his own worst enemy. But I really enjoyed Cash because he's a guys guy without being a jerk. He's been through the ringer yet he still chooses to put others first regardless of what it will cost him. The twist was a pleasant surprise, romantic too.
What Left Me Wanting More: Even knowing how this story ends, I would be perfectly happy reading an entire story (or novella) about Anaya and Tarik. ;)
Final Verdict: Great addition to the series!
