The rogue reaper isn’t going to be easy to track down, and even if Lana does manage to catch up with her, the real question is whether or not a shot at redemption will be enough to lure her away from the dark side.

    I received an Advanced Reading Copy in exchange for my honest review. I am a lover of Limbo City and Lana's adventures and ongoing love story with Bub. Readers were given a hint of the Ghost Market in Angela Roquet's holiday novella, Season's Reapings. Now readers finally get some answers, but more questions arise as souls go missing but there doesn't seem to be any clear pattern or any real clues ever since Grim disappeared and the rebels have been run to ground.

Readers were given a hint of the Ghost Market in Angela Roquet's holiday novella, Season's Reapings. Now readers finally get some answers, but more questions arise as souls go missing but there doesn't seem to be any clear pattern or any real clues ever since Grim disappeared and the rebels have been run to ground. With so many changes going on in Limbo City, and so many different character backgrounds, I was very impressed with how tight Roquet kept the story line throughout. Once again, Lana is on a mission, but this time it's to save her own skin as her secrets are being uncovered right and left by seemingly everyone, and not everyone is happy with her existence. Actually, it seems that almost NO ONE is happy with her existence and Lana has to go the extra mile to prove her worth in Limbo City. Old enemies AND old ghosts come come back to haunt her, and I was beyond words when Lana submits herself to a certain "activities". I can only say it speaks to her strength, keep my fingers crossed, and hope that Roquet has something up her sleeve for "Hellfire and Brimstone" coming in October. Happy Reading!

The author clearly knows her mythology and how to weave an intriguing tale full of mystery, suspense, courage, and kissing. I don’t like to do spoiler reviews because I feel it ruins the fun for the people who want to read it. But I will tell you a few things that I particularly enjoyed—in a vague way. 1) The humor. The comedic timing of some of the lines and scenes were spot on. One scene in particular was my favorite in the entire book (and perhaps the series). Involving a chicken, a biscuit and a “charming” man. You’ll just have to read more to figure all this out yourself. 2) The stakes. The stakes were pretty high in this book. Roquet does a pretty good job of developing the tension in stakes in the other Lana books as well, but here, it definitely helped amp up the page-turning. 3) The frenemy dynamic. Tasha and Lana’s relationship was complex and interesting. 4) Other relationships too: Particularly the relationship between Lana and Kevin (there’s a truly tender moment in the last 1/3 of the book) and between Lana and Bub. Bub’s steadfast devotion is so damn charming. The only real complaint I have about Roquet’s books are the length. I wish they were a little longer. I enjoy Limbo City so much that it would be nice to linger in that world for a bit longer. But alas, we can’t have everything we want can we? And that’s all the no-details telling you’re getting from me. But really, I highly recommend the book and agree with another reviewer that “It’s like Percy Jackson for adults.” Enjoy!

The characterisation is as ever with this series quite wonderful, with plenty of humour and comedy as well as more serious situations. Through it all the author continues to maintain the pace of the story while keeping the reader entertained and interested in the telling. While most of the usual cast of characters and locations reappear in this tale, it is also pleasant to have the odd new character and locale thrown into the mix. I personally think in one situation (which I won't spoil) Lana's gone a bit soft, but that's just my opinion, and it doesn't change my view that this is a great book to read, always provided that you read the other novels in the series first, obviously. I'm looking forward to Autumn or the Fall, if you prefer, for Lana's next outing.

    First, let me advise anyone new to the series to start at the beginning. The first five books build the Eternity universe. Because I am lazy, I will rate the series to date. After death, souls pass on to the heaven or hell of their religious belief based on how they lived. Those without a faith are sent into the soul sea where they reside until eventually being recycled into new life. There's a process. It involves storks.

Because I am lazy, I will rate the series to date. After death, souls pass on to the heaven or hell of their religious belief based on how they lived. Those without a faith are sent into the soul sea where they reside until eventually being recycled into new life. There's a process. It involves storks. Lana is an eighth generation reaper, created from excess soul matter. Reapers are second class citizens of Eternity with limited job prospects. Grim, head reaper in charge of soul collection...and generally unpleasant person, ruled the roost. His power base depended on one special soul, a first believer with the power of creation and the true mother of all reapers. After centuries of creation, the soul knew it was time to find a new first believer to take over the mantle of responsibility. She created Lana, a reaper with the extra ability to see special souls. Lana transitions from an aimless reaper, content with low level harvests into a confident leader, willing to sacrifice for her friends and loved ones. I love that she is not perfect. In fact, she is very human and often overwhelmed by the insanity of her life. The author does an exceptional job of building the secondary characters. Each one has their own challenges independent of Lana's and interact realistically. The books deal with drug abuse, death, devastating heartbreak and other extreme sports within the context of political feuding, manipulation and outright war. Death wish ends after the epic battle between the rebels who want excess souls distributed to the most powerful gods, and the current, more democratic players. Grim is unmasked as a god and ousted from his "neutral" position in charge of the reapers. Naledi, the new first believer soul and Jenni, new head reaper, barely cling to their positions as Eternity's political leaders struggle for dominance in the aftermath. Lana is happily enjoying sexy naked times with her hot demon boyfriend, Beelzebub (Bub for short), when their vacation is cut short by an urgent summons from Jenni. Apparently, several members of the Eternity council are unhappy with the way Lana bucked the system to help defeat the rebels, and want to see her dead. The only way to possibly regain favor (and save her life) is to find the whereabouts of dozens of missing souls. Lana's anxiety and tension throughout Ghost Market make this installment a little more stressful than the other books. Will Lana solve the mystery in time to save her life? Will she sacrifice her integrity? Will Bub and her friends continue to support her? The reader doesn't know until the last chapter. I can't wait to see what happens next.

    The 6th installment (not including short stories) of the Lana Harvey: Reaper’s Inc. series, “Ghost Market” sees Lana in the midst of all the action once again. The story starts quickly, which if you are a follower of her work, you know how she LOVES to throw Lana into turmoil. It certainly leads to character growth.

A The 6th installment (not including short stories) of the Lana Harvey: Reaper’s Inc. series, “Ghost Market” sees Lana in the midst of all the action once again. The story starts quickly, which if you are a follower of her work, you know how she LOVES to throw Lana into turmoil. It certainly leads to character growth. Lana is tasked with tracking down missing souls, and there is so much riding on her finding out what’s going on, in more ways than one. How would Eternity ever survive without her? All the usual suspects are there, and this story line really puts a light on who her real friends and allies are. Bub plays an interesting role in this book as their love story takes a turn. Tasha presents an interesting challenge to Lana, and in the end a hard choice is made, for which Lana will most likely be held accountable. Maalik remains omnipresent, new friendships are forged, new characters are introduced and Helljack puppies are cuddled. No (good) demons were harmed in the making of this novel. As usual, Angela Roquet choses her words, so pay attention, including all of the pop culture, and chapter quotes. (I imagine one day on Jeopardy: “Angela Roquet pop culture for 1000, Alex”). Having said that, I will say there are still questions (at least that I have) that remain unanswered and I swear her next (and last) installment, “Fire and Brimstone” will need to be twice the size to wrap everything up. Three parting thoughts: Read her short stories (ALL of them), they tie things together. Read ALL of her novels, they are important There is a lesson here, woven so well into the story, you just might miss it.

    Wow what a great ending to an awesome series. We are definitely on the down side of the story arc and working on all the clean up. There are some characters that I would just love to see completely gone. And there are others I can see growing more. There is just one thing. It is a trap I believe that can happen. We (the fans) never seem to want to let our favorite characters go and want more but more is not necessarily a good thing. Personally I am content. If more are written I will certainly be Wow what a great ending to an awesome series. We are definitely on the down side of the story arc and working on all the clean up.

I believe she has a great talent for creating that unique dance with her characters weaving in and out of each other with suspense and drama that keeps you just a bit off kilter. I look forward to more of her work. Thank you for sharing your gift.

    I've followed this series from the first book and I have loved each book in the series. The characters have grown and developed well. I love the dynamic between Lana and Bub, I think they are amazing together. The plot was incredibly well written and well thought through. The characters are strong and the overall plot read well. All in all I really enjoyed this book and look forward to the next book. I've followed this series from the first book and I have loved each book in the series.

He is going to be trouble for Lana in the next book I bet! Lana has grown since the beginning of the series. She had come a long way! I’m understand her feelings of worry about her faith with the councils. Especially with three people who are in the wrong and gunning for her. Holly, Cindy, and Ridwan are PITA (pain in the ass) to our Lana. Never met such self righteous people than them. Cindy who is still burn over Lana exposed her undercover mission with Beelzebub to the council. Holly is petty over what happened when Lana was trying to save Bub. Lana barely grazed Holly with her ax at the condo when she escaped there. It was accident! Ridwan just never like Lana! In order for Lana approves herself to the high in mighty council for her life they gave her a task to find out who is taking the souls. What worst is they want her to loose the ability to find first original believer. I hope it will bite them on the ass! Lana has done everything for the great good of her city! The charges against her are chumps up! I know most readers feel it was short but I find the series just right! No fillers! Take me to meat of the story! Please give this series a try! It’s not about who religions are right! Thank for reading my review! I hope I didn’t spoil it to much for you!

    Oooooh, I really liked this book! It’s filled with so much angst and tons of investigative adventures. Lana is definitely a favorite character. She’s strong, stubborn and a bit of a hot mess. She’s got flaws but they make her feel real. One of the things I really liked about this book was the politics. Who had any idea the afterlife would have so much bureaucratic red tape?

Some of it (okay, most of it) was super shady and underhanded. But I also liked it?? There were so many things going on in this book that I can’t wait to see play out in the next one. I’m also really excited to see how Lana does with captaining the new reaper unit. I really liked how much Lana and Bub’s relationship has healed (and grown) after everything that’s happened. I love them as a couple and I just want the best for them. I can’t wait to see how things progress. 😊 I think the one thing I would have wanted to change was the way that Lana handled the Tasha situation. I felt like that part of the story was a little out of character for Lana. But it turned out okay in the end. And over all I liked the sneaky way Lana got back at the council for it. So, with that being said, I’m giving this book a four out of five stars.

    I enjoyed this series of books. I believe I originally found the author and the 1st book in the series on an email that I receive but I am not positive. The protagonist in the story is Lana Harvey who is a Reaper -- beings in a celestial world that work for Grim (aka The Grim Reaper) and help him harvest souls. Evidently as humanity's population exploded so too did the amount of souls that needed to be gathered and Grim couldn't do it by himself. ANYWAY Lana occasionally butts head with Grim and I enjoyed this series of books.

    The sixth entry in the Reapers Inc. series finds Lana still in trouble with the Afterlife Council and in danger of being executed. She's also been charged with locating and rescuing souls that had disappeared from Limbo City. Bub is still with her, though, and Maalik and Gabriel have her back, as do Kevin and Abe.

I'm looking forward to the next one.

    The main character was whiny, grouchy, mean, and self pitying the entire book. It was made even worse by the fact that no one called her on it, and she never seemed to see how horrible of a person she was being. If I didn't already have the next book, this one may have been enough to make me quit the series. I'll see if she gets her head out of her butt in the next one.

    Lana just can catch a break. It's also a shame that she has to do this task in this book just so that she can prove herself to them which in my opinion after all the crap they have put her through is FUBARed. Now that they have removed a vital part of her how does that make her feel? I am glad that Bulb still loves her regardless. The two of them are cute together. Lana just can catch a break.

Based on the life of a Reaper (created specifically in the afterlife for the purpose of reaping souls in the mortal realm), the series offers a tongue-in-cheek look at what an all-inclusive afterlife might resemble. Souls representing all faiths, and, yes, even atheists, roam the streets of Limbo City, awaiting decisions as to their final placement. All of this is governed by a council consisting of gods and goddesses, angels, and saints – and like in the mortal realm, politics is hell. In this episode, Lana is in deep trouble. As a reaper, she is not to have the power to see a soul’s aura, but somehow she can. This power was of use to her former Boss, Grim, and others, in being able to tell more about a soul’s abilities and former lives. It is a power that is strictly outlawed by the council, and now that it’s been “discovered,” it could cost Lana her life. Compounded by other acts in the recent rebellion, many on the council are currently hoping to see her fail in her current assignment – finding the “ghost market,” a souls-for-sale trafficking ring that has been kidnapping souls from both sides of life to sell to the highest bidder, and bringing it down. Even if she succeeds, the council could still vote to end her life. Desperate times make strange bedfellows, and the combination of entities involved in Lana’s new special unit make for an interesting mission. Will she succeed? Will she survive the council’s wrath? Get yourself a copy of “Ghost Market” and see! As usual, the writing is smooth, moving the plot along seamlessly. Roquet’s writing style is easy and interesting, making her “prefab afterlife” seem very plausible. Wouldn’t we all love to live in a place where it only rains in the middle of the night so as not to inconvenience the citizens. (Location 910 on my Kindle). Roquet takes the time to properly proof and edit, with the result that I only found one error in the entire novel (at 1169: “I went over my plan again in my head, while Jenni the mirrored walls to fix her hair.” Maybe Jenni looked into the mirrored walls, or turned to the mirrored walls? For one reason or another, this one seemed to end a bit abruptly. I was reading along, anticipating that there was something else to be wound up at the end, but evidently that will await another novel (next one due out in October 2016). It isn’t that the main issues weren’t resolved, just a few of what seemed like loose ends that I suppose will have to wait till October to be tied up! Still a fun read.

    Another fun romp with Lana Harvey, reluctant hero with a punk heart of gold While not as action-packed and overflowing with plot as previous books in the series, the adventures of Lana Harvey never fail to entertain. I love stories where girls kick tush, and Lana has always done so in spades. The lack of Josie was felt, but that kind of adds to the book and series as we know how much her loss is felt by those in the Reapers, Inc. world.

The lack of Josie was felt, but that kind of adds to the book and series as we know how much her loss is felt by those in the Reapers, Inc. world. Ghost Market would have benefitted from more interaction with the inhabitants of Limbo City, and perhaps some bit of subplot, but I think the main character and the author may have needed to take things easy after all the crazy action in the last installment. There were also a few moments in which I feared this was going to turn into a bodice-ripper, but there turned out to be few more of those brief moments. If you haven't read the first five books in the series you'll be lost, but you're also missing out if you haven't gotten to them yet. And now, a plea to the author: please include a map of Limbo City next time! I'm finding it so confusing to figure out where everything is, especially since everything seems to be 2 blocks away from everything else and on the other side of town. As a visual person a map would really add to the experience.

    Lana Harvey and the Lickable Prince of Darkness are back and life is sweet - or at least it would be if the usual suspects didn’t want Lana dead. While Lana jumps through hoops just to stay alive, she must not only track down and stamp out the black trade of stolen souls, she also faces losing something she never knew she held dear. Packed with plenty of humour, action and suspense, along with Angela’s Roquet’s incredible talent for interweaving the faiths and mythology, Ghost Market is a brillian Lana Harvey and the Lickable Prince of Darkness are back and life is sweet - or at least it would be if the usual suspects didn’t want Lana dead.

Packed with plenty of humour, action and suspense, along with Angela’s Roquet’s incredible talent for interweaving the faiths and mythology, Ghost Market is a brilliant continuation of Death Wish, which in itself could easily have been closing chapter of our dear little reaper - not that we would ever want to say goodbye! In addition to this, Season's Reapings now serves as a bridge between the two rather than a stand-alone short story. I look forward to the next installment, and hope that Lana’s story continues for a long time after.

    The writer knows how to elicit a response, I'll give her that! Haha. I was furious at how the main character is getting treated - especially seeing as how big of a role she played in regards ending the potential of a huge, drawn out war. (view spoiler)[ Although it is understandable, I still found it unfair that Lana's powers got zapped and am hoping that she somehow gets them back. I like how she's proving she's still badass without them - but I just liked knowing she was on equal footing with t The writer knows how to elicit a response, I'll give her that! Haha.

    This one was a little wild as well. The whole ghost market thing was wild. You would kinda think that Reapers would be incorruptible but I can see how they aren't. Lana is always a hero, so our girl is going after it again. I really think Lana just has a 'save the world' complex at this point. I did enjoy meeting other characters and seeing how Lana deals with all of these other facets of people, reapers, souls, and everything else. This one was a little wild as well.
