Hott Synopsis:

Night isn’t sure how he managed to fail the test but he did. Now he only gets one more chance to show that he too can be a reaper. He can follow that family tradition or honor instead of traipsing along in his father’s footsteps – whatever that means.

But after a brush with the law Night finds himself even more unsure and determined.

Hott Review:

I’m on the fence with this one.
What I liked: I really enjoyed the writing style. It was intriguing & kept me reading even though I wasn’t enjoying some of the plot.
What I didn’t like: Night. He’s very much a typical teen – rude and selfish – and he’s very disrespectful to his father. It was very sad, even though I could see that Night was going to prove himself and that his relationship with his father would change in the end, and I just couldn’t read further.
