The Golden Age of Death by Amber Benson

Saturday, August 31, 2013

My name is Calliope Reaper-Jones (Callie to my friends). I’m Death’s Daughter and—as of very recently—the (reluctant) head of my father’s company, Death, Inc.

I was gradually learning how to be a businesswoman. Had the power suits and shoes down, though the day to day was slow going. Then I was blindsided by Enemies Unknown and sent off to I-don’t-know-where. Not a good thing.

Now not only must my friends and family be frantic, but without a CEO, Death, Inc., can’t function. With the newly deceased left free to roam the Earth, it’s the zombie apocalypse come true.

I’ve got to get back—for my sake and the sake of, oh, all humanity…

Goodreads Summary

Amber Benson’s novel, The Golden Age of Death, is a whirlwind of plot twists and humor.  Callie
is death, literally.   She is the President and CEO of Death Inc.  Although Callie did not want the job, she is becoming quite skilled in her position when she suddenly disappears, taken by an unknown enemy. 
Without death, what is the world to do?  Turn into zombies, of course!
I liked Benson’s take on death and style of writing.  The point of view moves from character to
character, keeping the plot fresh and memorable.  I did not read the other novels in the series, but was
able to understand most of the book.  Readers new to the series will not struggle to understand the
events of the Calliope Reaper-Jones series.  Anyone who enjoys humor and adventure will love The
Golden Age of Death.

    I've been meaning to read this series since I'm a huge Buffy fan! (She played Tara.) I'm not sure why I haven't gotten to it yet!

  1. This sounds like a fun read! It certainly is an interesting twist. Makes me wonder just what "killed" death. Thanks for the review(:
