How could someone who let me suffer for hundreds of years be anything but a monster?

Heather Kütz would like nothing more than to be a regular teenager. After striking a deal with Death to save her sister, she gets stuck in an endless loop of lives, all ending just before her nineteenth birthday.

When, during her eighteenth life, Death unexpectedly sweeps her into his domain, she’s ready to give him a piece of her mind. But then he tells her about a group of rebellious spirits bent on returning to the living world. If Heather fails to help Death, the spirits will flood the world, undoing Death’s power and obliterating life’s natural balance in one fell swoop.

But Heather doesn’t blame them; she’s witnessed Death’s deception time and again. As the conflict escalates, Heather must ultimately choose who to stand beside — Death… or the lost souls literally fighting for their lives.


Born in a small town in Idaho, Dove Calderwood has been passionate about reading and writing from an early age. From the short story about a knight named DeJel she wrote for her cousin at 8, to the scathing satire of her elementary school she penned at 12, to the first manuscript she completed at 17, her pencil has never been still.

I love everything about this book! Such an amazing story line, which leaves you wanting to know more with the end of each chapter. Dove is an exceptional writer, and I honestly hope for a sequel.

Elaine Goodwin, Amazon Reviewer

We get questions about whether death is an true enemy or perhaps a way to peace. There’s a large cast it took me a while to sort out, but Heather herself is nicely rendered. A good read that kept me guessing until the end.
