Editorial Reviews

Review

"Tantalisingly teasing, Death Wishes is an offbeat love story told in Green's inimitable style. The book's overarching theme about angels, people and love, is undeniably appealing and is the heartfelt centre to Green's plot. She keeps it together, tugging here at human longing, there at our fears, sometimes subtly, sometimes more openly as she demonstrates a penchant for emotionally manipulative writing. In this way she brings a touching vulnerability to Jo whilst her nicely nuanced rendering of Mac allows for a quirky perspective on human life. Often easier said than done, Green comes up with inventive ways to work this into her narrative with timely levity and a genuinely original twist to Heaven that's simply sublime, Death Wishes deserves a place on your bookshelf and is strongly recommended." - Book Viral, Review site.

"Josephine, a maths teacher with a heart of gold, is not only relatable, but her passion for knowledge and seeing the good in everyone will rub off on you too. The fast paced interplay in the dialogues and conversation pieces are fun to read and the romantic angle to the story has a lot of chemistry and a sensual feature to it.
The narrative provides an uplifting mood of redemption, love and spirituality throughout the book. It is perfect for readers who love the forbidden and seemingly impossible romances and yearn to experience the same in their lives. 'Death Wishes' is as guilty pleasure as they come." - MWB Reviews.

"With all of the originality that Rowanna Green readers have come to love, DEATH WISHES takes readers on a journey to the afterlife, where things are almost nothing like you might have imagined them. Combining a one of a kind story with her masterful control of the English language, Ms. Green has added another stroke of genius to a tapestry already filled with bright hues of brilliant fiction. DEATH WISHES will be certain to keep readers of smart fiction entertained for generations to come." - Buzz Malone, Author of Silence of Centerville.

"The characters Ms Green has created are so loveable and so real, that by the end, you will feel like you are reading a story about your best friend. Her humor sparkles, her passion sizzles and her image of the bureaucracy of Heaven is truly unique (and hilarious). I don't care if I'm talking in cliches: This book deserves all the good ones!" - JD Faulkner, Author of Mirrored Time

"If you like your spirituality mixed with earthy sensuality, you will love Rowanna Green 's "Death Wishes". Ms. Green writes juicy sex scenes as well as ones that contemplate what it means to live a moral life in our day and age. "Death Wishes" still manages to be humorous and very entertaining. The ending was a complete surprise. After reading the epilogue, I hope this is the first book of a series." - Veronica Richards, Author of The Heartless Fey

"This was a wonderfully written and humorous spin on heaven (with ultra-modern technology, people!) and an English Maths teacher. And an angel to die for. The character of Jo Gold is so well developed, I felt like I was reading about a dear friend. I was by her side during her life's ups and downs, her struggles and triumphs, and her passions and breakthroughs. Ms. Green depicted the humor and romance and longing in such a real but completely fantastical way. A great read, balancing both light and deep moments and surprises that keep you guessing." - Amazon Reader

"Ms. Green writes with sass and fantastic british humour. And what a great concept! A woman dies before she's supposed to, and causes chaos in heaven. Ms. Green's take on heaven is refreshing and new, it's very much like a typical office with all the politics, snarky attitude, and angels trying not to piss off "The Big Guy", and is totally relatable and hilarious. Full of heat, sass and humour, Death Wishes is a fantastic must read. Seriously. MUST. READ. :)" - Amazon Reader

"Green approaches the question of 'life after death' in a refreshing way. And she answers the question- what if you die too soon? Heaven is painted differently than ever before- it really makes you reconsider idyllic, ethereal scenery, white clouds, harp music. That is not Green's heaven, although, the picture she paints is still filled with unconventional beauty and technology.
I thought the main character was very likeable and her plight somehow relatable (of course, I haven't 'died' yet, so it's a testament to Green's ability that I could really step into Jo's shoes). Also, my skepticism about hot angels was totally erased once I 'met' Machidiel. Yum. (Feeling a little sacrilegious here).
This isn't a book I'd normally pick up, but I'm glad I did. Great writing, unique author's voice, and professional editing." - Amazon Reader

From the Author

This story was gifted to me in the middle of writing another one. It came like a bolt from the blue - completely heaven sent. The idea of an office full of Angels using advanced computer programs may seem odd and some may take offence at my characterisation of their favourite Angel. Zadkiel comes off particularly badly, until you realise that in a movie, he would be played by Alan Rickman. Then it all comes good.

Please know that no offence is meant. In my head, this is what Heaven might be like. I hope you enjoy spending time with these characters as much as I have. Any resemblance to people who think they know me is pure coincidence - I borrowed some of your story, not your life.
