Graveyard Shift is a fun, entertaining read that had me laughing in places. The demons, archangels, grim reapers, and ancient Gods from various deities share quirky, all-too human traits which is a refreshing change from other fantasy novels. Explanations of the bureaucratic levels and rules were a bit confusing at times, but it didn’t detract overall enjoyment of the book.
Given that this is the first installment in the Lana Harvey series, it’s no surprise that the story doesn’t end. Lana manages to accomplish her main quest, but clearly there’s a great deal more ahead for her. It’s uncommon to find an author who can pull off humor with dark subjects and grisly situations, but Angela Roquet is certainly one of them.

Some reviews have a point when they wrote that it was similar to other book characters pertaining the heroin and the type being similar to other stories. But if you do like the genre, and you need a light entertaining read, this really does the job. I totally disagree that it's a waste of time.
For a 0$ kindle book, it was extremelly refreshing to read something that was grammatically sound, and that did not look like a teenager was writting something about her girlfriends going on a night out, giggles and 'he's so dreamy' included... yes, there is some shopping, but at least it's not extreme and written in an immature way.
So all in all, it is worth more than the price, most definitely.
That being said, there were a couple of things that bothered me a bit, but perhaps I'm being picky. I'm not entirely sure the romance between Maalik and Lana was necessary - I felt like it didn't add anything to the story and it might have been a bit rushed. The length bothered me a little (a bit on the short side) especially considering how rushed the romance seemed and how much world building went into coming up with the premise.
Again, I'm keeping an eye out for the next books in the series and will pick up the second book once I'm able.
Demons and Angels populate the story and both can be friend, foe, or otherwise.
Purgatory is held together with a peace agreement that is fraying at the edges. A secret threatens to drown the city in a holy war not seen for centuries, and it’s all up to Lana to fix. If only people would tell her the truth.
I recommend this story to anyone who likes an afterlife populated with beings as flawed as the humans on this side of death.
While the book was an easy read, I quickly tired of the constant onslaught of new and ridiculous characters from the afterlife. I wish the author had concentrated more on plot development and less on the constant introduction of new characters in the afterlife.
The end was very anti-climatic and was the type of ending you'd expect where the first book was free and the author expected payment for the second. I haven't decided whether I'll buy subsequent books yet..

Not at all what I was expecting but after wrapping my head around the premise and remembering how each of the characters fit into "Limbo" it turned into a pretty good read.Published 4 months ago by Mike Hole
