The Reaper's Pet by Phenomenal Pen
DEATH GETS A LOVE LIFE.
“I accept,” I say all at once and then lower my eyes shyly. “If you think my human body can serve as a substitute for her and fill your hunger, I’m willing to take that chance.”
The feeling that I recognize in his eyes is one of shock and even fear, as though he hadn’t expected at all that I’d agree.
“Let’s do it,” I whisper across the gap between us.
When metalhead Janet Buenviaje dies in a diving accident, she falls into an underworld prison where the only way out is through an eccentric reaper named Septimus Rex. As monarch of Soul City, Septimus Rex leads an army of supernatural Ravens tasked with the deportation of overstaying souls from the mortal realm.
But the fates smile on Janet because the head reaper has problems of his own. He has fallen in love with a mortal girl; an abhorrent sign of weakness that, if discovered by the Ravens, will start a power struggle in Hell. With Janet's help, Septimus must now attempt to confess his feelings to the girl of his dreams so he can go back to being devoid of human sentiment.
Janet is reincarnated as a Wampus Cat reaper and hatches an escape plan to the surface world. But she finds that things in the underworld are not what they seem and Septimus's problems run deeper, somehow even linked to her own mysterious past.
