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.

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.

I'm always up for stories that poke fun about serious themes, and `death' and `angels' have always been such themes for me. Reapers With issues deals exactly with those: the heavy celestial bureaucracy, with all the defects the latter term entails, and how figures of terror, the Four Horsemen, must deal with very day-to-day, down-to-earth problems regarding death. Their main problem being that there are only the four of them to do the job, while humanity keeps on multiplying. `Grim' and his fellow horsemen go to quite a few lengths to keep their heads up, from filing up reports to indulging in buying weed from Saint Peter's offspring. I found it very funny to see familiar figures of heaven and hell depicted under various, different colours here, within what is a nice satire of the corporate and bureaucratic world. Lucifer is exactly the kind of smart, manipulative bas***d I'd expect him to be. Grim tries to tackle problems as seriously as possible, but let's just say that between War's antics and the new management imposed by God, this is proving harder and harder as the story progresses.

The least I can say is that this novel made me smile and chuckle, a lot. Granted, there were a few times when the humour wasn't very subtle; but I think the author also did a good job in not overdoing it, and when fun is being poked at sensitive themes, it is always done so in a good-natured way, not in a voluntarily offensive one. Also, I commend the editing work done on this book. I didn't notice any of the usual typos and misprints that tend to spring, and the author's writing style was fluid and pleasant, both in descriptions and in dialogues.

Really, I can't find many faults with this book. It made me spend a very good time, it was a short and fun reading, its characters made me laugh, and all in all, it's a novel I'd easily recommend to my friends.

*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.
