Seventeen, dead, and in charge of heaven's dark angels—all itching to kill someone.

Madison Avery's dreams of ever fitting in at her new school died when she did. Especially since she was able to maintain the illusion of a body, deal with a pesky guardian angel, and oh yeah, bring the reaper who killed her to his untimely end. Not exactly in-crowd material. It's amazing that her crush, Josh, doesn't think she's totally nuts.

Now Madison has learned that she's the dark timekeeper, in charge of angels who follow the murky guidelines of fate. Never one to abide by the rules, she decides it's time for a major change to the system. With the help of some unlikely allies, Madison forms a rogue group of reapers who definitely don't adhere to the rules of the heavens.

But as she grapples with the terrifying new skills that come with being a timekeeper, Madison realizes she may not be prepared for what lies ahead—unless she gets some seriously divine intervention.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Haley | 5/21/2013

    " I found myself immensely interested in this book after having finished the first. Both were great and this one holds up to the usual. I thought this one had a little less kick to it, but it was still worth the read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Grace | 1/6/2013

    " Tried to get back into this series but it just didn't work. The first book was pretty good and grabbed my attention but getting into this book was boring and just not worth it. I'm sad to say it, but this is another series I'm going to have to drop. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginny | 12/26/2012

    " This is just a super fun and different series. Looking forward to the next! "

    " I love all the main characters and the whole fight against fate. Somehow, I keep picturing Barnabas as Castiel (Supernatural). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 9/26/2012

    " I can't believe I didn't read this series sooner. I think I was afraid Kim Harrison was gong to be one of those authors who writes adult books and then feels they have to dumb everything down for teens. But this series isn't like that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helyn Van | 9/14/2012

    " Um it kind of went nowhere. Not a great book for me, but it worked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennavier | 12/13/2011

    " As the sequel to a book I enjoyed I was predisposed to like Early to Death. It had the same cute tone and it boosted it's likeability by having characters besides Madison that Harrison delves into. It's really short so the ending runs into you like a telephone pole you didn't see coming. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Renee | 9/16/2011

    " This was a pretty good sequel. But I like Ms. Harrisons grown up books better "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracett | 5/20/2011

    " This is a fun twist on the paranormal theme. The lead character, Madison, is charmingly imperfect. I've yet to meet a Kim Harrison novel that I haven't enjoyed and this in no exception. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 5/10/2011

    " Review is in process... I liked it, but not loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 crystal | 5/9/2011

    " I really liked this book I am a huge fan of Kim Harrison she is amazing :-) the only bad thing I have to say is that it just wasn't long enough by the time u really get into the book it's ending :-( I can wait to start reading the next one :-) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debra | 5/5/2011

    " It started out good, but then took a turn for the worse, confusing with all the amulet and scythe, timekeeper and reaper theology. I skipped some paragraphs for lack of caring anymore! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tokio Hotel, Cinema Bizarre, and The GazettE | 4/25/2011

    " I liked this book, and I thought the writing was done very well, but at the same time I felt like something was missing throughout the entire book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ronda | 4/14/2011

    " Looking forward to seeing what's next for Madison in her journey to find her body, figure out where she stands in the battle between free will and fate, and, oh yeah--make it through her senior year of high school. Kim Harrison has given the YA world a fun new urban fantasy series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dee | 4/11/2011

    " It was interesting. How certain angels are either chosen to kill you or save your life. Would like to see a sequel to see where this goes. "
