Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The scythes are still swinging in this sequel to the humorously weird Croak (2012). The action picks up just a few days after Lex’s twin sister is killed by Zara, the rogue Grim who is literally cutting a swathe through the world. As the adult Grims of Croak quarrel about how to handle the crisis, Lex receives a horrifying message from Zara: either Lex surrenders an all-important book or Zara will reap a soul a day. The trouble is, Lex doesn’t have the book. Besides that, she is fighting her own urge to damn souls, and she hopes that she isn’t the legendary Last Grim, who is destined to destroy the After Life. Then explosions rock Croak, and Uncle Mort gathers the Junior Grims and heads for DeMyse, the Crown Jewel of the Grimsphere, a sort of Las Vegas times ten. Damico keeps the suspense, gore, and laughs flowing in this entertaining installment. The demise (perhaps) of a major character or two and a cliff-hanger ending just as a war begins will leave fans eager for the next book. Grades 8-12. --Lynn Rutan

Review

Praise for Scorch

"An amusing blend of whimsy and humor with serious drama and blood."
Kirkus Reviews

"Characters are always as clever as we wish we were. . . . An irresistible blend of impending doom, irreverent humor, hormone-fueled make-out sessions, and creative world-building make this sequel stronger than its predecessor and will leave readers dying for the next book."
SLJ

 

Praise for Croak

"Go ahead and die laughing, knowing that the safe transport of your mortal soul will be the summer job of a sweetheart teen with godlike power and discipline problems. A lot of books make me wish I could live within their pages, but I wouldn't mind dying in this one."
—Adam Rex, author of Fat Vampire

"Creepy and hilarious."
VOYA, 4Q, 5P

 

Praise for Rogue

"A gut-wrenching, laugh-out-loud, gritty, honest and brave ending to an appealing trilogy."
Kirkus
