This is the second book in the series. IN it the herione, Kristy, becomes a "Grim Reaper.' like I said in my last review, think of the old TV Series "Dead Like Me"
i won't give away the plot, but this is avery good series and the characters are fun and if the after-life is this much fun, then maybe it won't be too bad.
But I am happy to wait to find out.
I connected with Kirsty v2.0 much more this time round as she finally has a purpose. Seeing the sacrifices that her family has gone through on her behalf is enough to jolt her into action. Along the way she makes friends, the most notable of which is Kali, the goddess of "death, destruction, chaos and those earring backs that always go missing". Kirsty is capable of great things but she needs to watch her impulsive tendencies as she is just as likely to create chaos. Dante Alighieri is a delight as usual and his desire to reinvent his poetry had me chuckling.
Much like the first novel, puns and one-liners litter the pages. At times it felt like we jumped from one joke to the next but a university setting within Hell is obviously prime fodder for humour. Grant's world has been well thought out structurally even though we don't get a massive amount of descriptive text. Despite the length of the novel, she provides lots of little details about life in Hell which help to flesh it out. Plot wise, I thought this was again an improvement to the first, simply because we have a series of complications, a climax and semi-resolution leading into another cliff-hanger. I was more emotionally invested in Kirsty's fate so I got great satisfaction when she took charge.
"Scythe Does Matter" is a light and very humorous read. You simply must read the first one though so that you appreciate Kirsty's situation fully and get more insight into this crazy world.
