'Death has a Daughter' by Candice Burnett - Review

Book Title:  Death has a Daughter
Author: Candice Burnett
Genre: Young Adult

Cendall, history’s first female Grim Reaper, has until her eighteenth birthday to prove she’s worthy of the role. The only obstacle in her way are those pesky Guardian Angels who protect human souls, but Cendall is certain she can handle any Guardian who gets in her way. However, nothing could have prepared Cendall for Lacie—a soul that is protected by multiple Guardians, wanted by Demons, and, most startling of all, can see Cendall.

Cendall uses every trick in the book to try and slip past Lacie’s Guardians and collect her soul, but a Demon interferes at the last moment. In the chaos, Cendall accidently saves Lacie’s soul, along with one of the injured Guardians. Realizing Cendall fears termination for her mistake, the Guardian blackmails her with an offer she can’t refuse: in exchange for his silence, Cendall must keep Lacie’s soul safe from the Demon, until he recovers from his injuries.

Cendall agrees—with the intention of checking Lacie’s soul off her list, the instant the Guardian is healed. But as the three of them are forced to work together, Cendall begins to question why Lacie is wanted by the Demons and if her name actually belonged on Cendall’s list in the first place...

My Review:
*I was given a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

This is a book that I wish I could give more than 5 stars to!
Cendall is the very first female Grim Reaper, and she really has had to work her whole life to prove she is just as good as the boys- the thing is... she is better!
Making her way to the front of her reaping class, she is given assignments that are a little out of her league and she finds herself making some unlikely allies.
Guardian Angels are protecting Lacie, and Cendall is coming for her. What do you think happens when she starts asking some serious questions about her target? That's right, all Hell breaks loose!
Unexpected friends, old deals that ruin a girls life... you know, the average day in the life of a reaper.

'Death Has A Daughter' is a fantastic read! I can't wait to read more!!! I was hooked from the beginning all the way through! Cendall is just what you would expect from a strong female who has to constantly prove herself and I love a strong female lead!!
Lacie is quirky and fun and adds just a little bit of humor to the situation and ooooh those Guardians!!
Go out and read it TODAY!!
