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?

My rating: ★★★★★

Madison is still getting used to being the dark timekeeper and boss of all the dark reapers. It’s a lot to ask for from a girl who is still in high school. She is also still trying to convince the seraphs that killing someone before their soul dies or slapping a guardian angel on them so the dark reapers won’t kill them is not the only thing to do. Madison believes in choice. And it they can convince the “target” to change their lifestyle before a dark reaper kills them or a light reaper gives them a guardian angel, it could change the way reapers do things.

But of course, it won’t be easy. Madison is one step away from getting her body back, but once she does, will she have to give the amulet back. She knows that before she said that once she found her body she would give it back…but now she’s not so sure she want to give up her position as the dark timekeeper.

I absolutely loved this book! It was a satisfying ending to the series…I guess. It’s kinda sad and I wish we would hear more of Madison in the future though =/

I really liked the characters, the plot, Madison’s relationship with Josh…everything! I’ll be looking into more books by this author, that’s for sure :)
