Dying for a Living by Kory M. Shrum


I downloaded this book during an ebook sale quite a while ago and just now got around to reading it. I was not compensated for this review in any way.

Jesse Sullivan has a bit of a strange job. She is what is known as a necronite, she can’t die. Necronites are recruited to perform a very specific service: death replacement. Now information is available to tell people what day they are going to die, and rich people can hire death replacements. Their death replacement agent will spend the day with them, and when the death happens, the agent will take their place.

Everything goes wrong when one of the people Jesse is meant to replace turns on her and attempts to cut her head off, the only way to kill a necronite. Luckily it doesn’t work and she just dies normally, but now she has to not only solve her own murder but help figure out who is trying to stop the death replacement program.

I’m not a big fan of paranormal fiction, but I love it when the premise is unique or interesting. The idea of death replacement is super interesting and very realistic if we had that kind of power or technology. This is one of the few books that do a series right, everything is not neatly tied up at the end so you have to read the next book or more to actually see how things turn out.
