Graveyard Shift by Lana Harvey was very interesting. it put a new spin on death and afterlife that I could not fathom before. As always there is a hierarchy and politics in afterlife and because after life you simply cease to exist rubbing elbows with the right people is even more important down there. it was quirky and had nice jokes. i liked the characters and I liked the style of writing. However, there were a few plot complexities I did not understand. There also were several religions referenced and having no background in those I was unsure how to visualize what I was reading. It was one of those books that was a completely new world. The Grim Reaper hiring other grim reapers and how they reap souls to other lives. In this book, there were several heavens you could go to depending on what you believed on earth. As always, there’s a bad guy who wants all the souls for hisself. Lana is a cute and kinda nerdy grim reaper who can’t help breaking rules but something is different about her. She knows it, she just doesn’t know how unique she is. Maalik is an angel from Heaven and what all the women want. He’s so cocky, Lana ignores him on principle. But he wears her down. There were greek gods, muslims, christians and more in this book. It was really crazy, twisted look on death. Had my imagination like…
 Its a 3 out of 5 stars. This book is a series and I am still debating whether I will continue reading or not. I really want to know more about the core relationships that was established: Lana/Maalik, Josie/Kevin, and Gabriel/Amy. I also know the plot is going to seriously thicken, I just can’t decide if I want to try to muddle through the things I am confused on any further. If you like dark comedies I’d say go for it. I appreciate the focus on work and emotion, not sex. #freebooktho
