Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Croak used to be the only place where teenage grim reaper Lex felt like she fit in. But after she let the murderous Zara get away—and inadvertently transferred her ability to damn souls to her on top of that—Lex is a pariah in the little town full of Grims. Her boyfriend, Driggs, and her other Junior Grim friends have stood by her, but that has only made them outcasts, too. Meanwhile, Zara is still out there Damning innocents, and no one is safe. Its up to Lexs Uncle Mort, mayor of Croak, to protect the townspeople. But when tragedy strikes, the Grims rise up against him, too.      To escape their wrath, Mort takes Lex and the other Juniors on a wild road trip to DeMyse, a Las Vegas-like Grim city where they can hide out until the chaos in Croak subsides. Though this sparkling desert oasis is full of luxuries and amusements, Lex wants nothing more than to return to her simple little town and the good graces of its citizens. Her best chance at that would be to stop Zara once and for all—but how can she do that from DeMyse, where the Grims seem cheerfully oblivious to Zaras killing spree? Lex needs to track down the secret book that would make Zara even more dangerous. But she has no idea of the chilling lengths her nemesis would go to in order to find it first.

Synopsis:

In the second high-stakes installment in this morbidly funny series about a teenage grim reaper, Lex tries to track down a renegade grim who is indiscriminately damning souls. But how can Lex be a hero when the so many of her fellow Grims have turned against her for her own misdeeds?

Synopsis:

 Tobias tries to come to terms with the possibility that he might be a werewolf, and enlists the help of suburban vampires when he is abducted, in the highly anticipated sequel to The Reformed Vampire Support Group.

Synopsis:

When Tobias Richard Vandevelde wakes up in a hospital with no memory of the night

before, his horrified mother tells him that he was found unconscious. At Featherdale

Wildlife Park. In a dingo pen.

He assumes that his two best friends are somehow responsible, until the mysterious

Reuben turns up, claiming that Toby has a rare and dangerous “condition.” Next thing

he knows, Toby finds himself involved with a strange bunch of sickly insomniacs who

seem convinced that he needs their help. Its not until hes kidnapped and imprisoned

that he starts to believe them—and to understand what being a paranormal monster

really means.

Synopsis:

Sixteen-year-old Lex Bartleby is a teenage grim reaper with the bizarre ability to Damn souls. That makes her pretty scary, even to fellow Grims. But after inadvertently transferring her ability to Zara, a murderous outlaw, Lex is a pariah in Croak, the little town she calls home. To escape the townspeoples wrath, she and her friends embark on a wild road trip to DeMyse. Though this sparkling desert oasis is full of luxuries and amusements, it feels like a prison to Lex. Her best chance at escape would be to stop Zara once and for all—but how can she do that from DeMyse, where the Grims seem mysteriously oblivious to Zaras killing spree?
