Hilarious book and I am looking forward to reading more.

The author had a good idea, and for the most part he was able to carry it off, but after a while it became simply too much of a good thing.

Kudos to the author H.E. Ellis for having the guts/nerves/balls to write this book.

Fantastic! I just finished the first and am planning on picking up the rest of the series. Ellis writes a novel that exposes the ugly truth...you can't escape corporate politics, no matter what your job is. Even if that jobs involves reaping souls. God was a CEO who gave new meaning to nepotism. I love that there was an author who was ballsy enough to look at religion and faith from a different angle, i.e. the `maybe god doesn't know everything' angle. Hilarious book and I am looking forward to reading more.

*I received this book in exchange for an honest review*

Do not pick up this book if you have no sense of humor.

I loved this book. LOVED it! I laughed the entire way thru it. If you can't laugh at something, you are taking it way too seriously.

Seems that no one, not even death can get away from middle management BS. Grim's budget for OHD, Office of Human Death, has been slashed and his plea for extra Reapers is going to the dogs. God puts Jesus in charge, who has no idea about Reaping souls. Grim tries to help Jesus out with things, but with Lucifer always interfering, nothing goes right. Lucifer gives OHD some of his tormented souls, but they aren't Reapers. There are workman comp claims, misunderstandings, bribes, all everyday things you hear of in the government, so why would this be any different? At the end the Four Horsemen find their stride and get their act together to take over the OHD again.

The characters are well written and each has their own quirks, which makes it even better! I will definitely be purchasing the other books in the series!!

Kudos to the author H.E. Ellis for having the guts/nerves/balls to write this book.

To say this was a surprise read from her other series, would be an understatement. I have to admit, at first I couldn't wrap my head around it as I first felt shock for the, shall I say audacity, of an author to write some of these things that fly in the face of the religious minded. But if you let the chains on your mind go, you begin to sense the limitlessness of one's abilities to grasp the different angles your mind can create from a linear line. In other words, black and white can be any sound or color you want, and this story gives you a taste of just that. I would even say it elicited a decadent feel at first. That is until I got free of the chains and started to understand and feel the story with an unadulterated one path mind.
What is great about this story is that there was a morality to it, and characters that still had depth you could feel. Some, of course, took a while to feel anything for due to the nature of the character in your mind before you even began to get into the story, but that's what makes it intriguing; intimidating even as you wonder as an author if you could have created such a piece.
Many authors like to keep their characters in a positive light by giving them few if any flaws thus hoping to draw the reader into their veneration. But being in a real world, sometimes the flaws, making them feel on the same level as the reader, give the character just the endearment needed to make them your hero, your best friend. What H.E. Ellis makes you feel for these characters, I believe, will actually surprise you. It sure astonished me. It's a talent that some authors just innately have. I believe Ellis is one of them.
This story revolved around the four horsemen, God, Jesus and Lucifer.

this book was a funnier than I thought! At, first i was a little disappointed at the fact that "grim" the reaper of death does drugs. was about to say that the book wasn't for me, but the author then turned the attention on his job and left the drug use at that. i got this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. i loved this book and will be buying the second one in this series!

this book is about the "OHD" office of human death. got their budget taken over by lucifer to his place in hell. lucifer got a club and a gym. then god recently retired and had jesus take over the "OHD" god told grim that jesus was going to be watching over him making sure he runs is department fairly. grim wasn't happy that is new business partner was jesus. jesus then decides that the extra reapers that he was going to hire were going to be souls from hell that has been over crowding the depths of hell. lucifer doesn't like the fact that jesus got to talk over, so he goes out of his way to make it hard for grim to do his job. he sends over 5000 souls that were matress rippers or tax evadors. none of them were scary or able to choose who dies and goes where.

while grim is trying to please jesus because if he doesn't follow his rules will be sent to purgatory to be the supervisor.grim decides to take jesus under his wing and teach him what he needs to know about humans and how to act in public. he also teaches jesus about not needing his dads approval for everything, and tell jesus that he will take the fall for him if this program fails. grim then getsd drunk and follows in the ruins of lucifer and all hell breaks loose. about to loose his job, and ruin everything jesus created he needs to find a way to fix it. will grim learn that to be happy he has to put others first or will everything in the "OHD" will be ruined.
