Review: Something Deadly This Way Comes - Kim Harrison

Reading level: Ages 14 and up
Hardcover: 256 pages
Publisher: HarperCollins (May 24, 2011)

Technically dead 17-year-old Madison must choose between reclaiming her body and continuing as Dark Timekeeper, struggling in the war between Light and Dark reapers while trying to change the rules.

I adore this series! Madison is stubborn, driven and determined. Madison is trying to settle into her role and the Dark Time Keeper. But she doesn't believe in the system. She doesn't want to reap people, she believes that people can change. She spends this book trying to prove she can do it, but things just seem to spiral further out of control. Things start to turn around when she get the Light Time Keeper's apprentice involved. they learn that light and dark working together can achieve what they want. The only problem is getting the powers that be and the other reapers to listen. 

Madison, Barnabus, and Nakita are great characters, they all have there strengths and weaknesses and what makes them so great together is that they balance each other out. While one might be head strong and willing to just leap without looking another is all about planning things about. It works for them. I also think that this addition to the story really showed off the growth of all of them.

I think that this is a fresh new series and it has me hooked,. I give this one 4 stars and strong suggest you guys give these books a try.
