Suzie was just another typical girl until she started losing weight. her parents thought she was anorexic no matter how hard she tried to stuff herself. they brought her to doctors but to no avail. one day, she was swooped to an alternate dimension, where she was forced to attend the College of Deaths. she were to train to bring souls from the living to the hereafter. she can only return to the land of the living after passing her first year in the college, though many of the people she met here told her how impossible it was. to further complicate the terrifying situation she was thrown into, she was the only female Death in a million years, where the first female Death was so powerful she brought war upon her people.
I received a free e-book from the author in exchange for a review. I enjoyed the general idea of putting an average girl into the absurd environment, forcing her to be tough while pushing her to the limit. such heroin were often so lovable that it was difficult not to root for. however, there was not enough character development to make me fall for Suzie, only sufficient information on her background for us to comprehend her emotions as well as reactions. the pace of the story was also slightly slow, making it duller than it really was. but fortunately, curiosity got me through the book. I was pleased to have stuck with the book until the very end, where some of the mysteries and questions I had were finally answered.
