It's a hard-knock afterlife…

Lana Harvey is a reaper, and a lousy one at that. She resides in Limbo City, the modern capital of the collective afterlives, where she likes to stick it to the man (the legendary Grim Reaper himself) by harvesting the bare minimum of souls required of her. She’d much rather be hanging out with Gabriel, her favorite archangel, at Purgatory Lounge. But when a shocking promotion falls in Lana's lap, she learns something that could unravel the very fabric of Eternity. If the job isn’t completed, there could be some real hell to pay.

New to Lana and Limbo City?
If you love urban fantasy steeped in mythology, dark humor, gritty action, and paranormal romance, then buckle up, buttercup! You're in for one hell of a ride...

This series is complete at 7 books (plus a short story collection and illustrated guide) but you can catch up with Lana and the gang in LIFE AFTER DEATH, book one of the RETURN TO LIMBO CITY spin-off series!

Graveyard Shift is book one in the Lana Harvey, Reapers Inc. series by Angela Roquet.

Lana doesn’t like her position as a reaper and doesn’t quite follow the rules. She’s compassionate and kick-ass. The author weaves in many different types of religions and their accompanying deities and gods. It’s done in a well rounded way that it’s weaved into the story nicely. It’s got great world-building and character development.

The only thing I didn’t get on board with is the love interest though that is in the background and not the focus of the story.

It’s a nice introduction to the series. The author pulled me in and has me invested in Lana Harvey and the outcome of the character and world. Looking froward to reading more in the Lana Harvey, Reapers Inc. series.

Rated: 4 Stars
