Eternity can suck when it’s all work, work, work. Death harvests souls even when they stack up faster than pancakes in an all-you-can-eat-buffet.

As the patron angel of death and dying, Azrael works closely with Death, but is dying for true intimacy. She’s the only immortal who’s ever aroused such powerful emotions in him. One taste of her leaves him needing her like humans need air and food, but will a demon’s lies leave a bad taste?

No one escapes Death – except King Sisyphus. Twice. With the help of Damien the demon, Sisyphus tries again, and she’s determined to have justice. Some say Death’s a bitch, but only when she has to be. But will the price of justice be a broken heart?

Beautiful, dark and sexy!

Work for Death is never easy, especially when you’re always on call. As the most feared angel, Death spends her days reaping souls and has no time for romance. As her superior, the angel Azrael longs for an emotional connection with Death, the only woman who’s sparked his interest. Working closely with Azrael has made her vunerable and when a tempting demon who doesn’t take no for an answer turns to her enemy for revenge, Death is forced to show just how dangerous she can be.

First I must congratulate Ms. Cate Masters for giving us a female angel of death, I thought this concept was brilliant! Death is a powerful and strong heroine who isn’t afraid to also show us her vulnerability and even has a sense of humor through it all. It’s impossible not to feel a connection to her and the emotional responsibility she’s faced with. I feel the romance between Death and Azrael is a little subdued for my taste, but the chemistry is unquestionable. The angel vs. demon theme adds a little suspense that keeps you on edge. Damien is the quintessential villain but I couldn’t help but feel a bit of sympathy for his character, I can’t say this happens to me with every bad guy but kudos to Ms. Masters for invoking this sentiment.

Death is a Bitch is a short but compelling story that captures your l with its originality. Immortality, love and betrayal lay the foundation for an unpredictable and exciting read. This is truly a well crafted story with beautiful imagery set in a complex paranormal world of angels, demons, and gods that’s sure to delight readers.
