Firstly I want to thank the lovely author for kindly providing me a copy to read and review “Dead Girl Walking”
Being a princess can be hard at times, take it’s toll.
Princess Ophelia is to marry into another royal family in the name of her father, BUT she is in love with another boy who has no idea who she really is, a boy that she secrets away.
Things take a turn for the worse for the lovely young Princess, a grim ending no-one saw coming.
Going from one extreme to another is what is in store for Princess Ophelia….well she now goes by the name Leila…She seems to really struggle with the whole reaper thing, but was quick to learn from her mistakes, if she failed to do her job this then would only add to the burden her new friends were already faced with.
How do you leave your old life and old habits and thoughts and become a totally new person….on the inside as well as the outside?
The characters were engaging, and you really felt for them all.
It can’t be easy being a reaper, I know I certainly wouldn’t be able to do it.
If you read this book you can never put it down and you just wanna keep on going.
