Average family. Average job. Average existential crisis.
After thirty boring years, nothing about Cora Riley’s life has measured up to her childhood dreams of being truly extraordinary. It’s too bad that the night she decides to seek out her specialness she crashes on a rural highway.
Cora wakes in the clutches of the Mistress of the underworld who sets her a seemingly impossible quest. If she wants a second chance at life, Cora must find her way through the dozen heavens and return to the castle in three days.
With the help of an unusual guardian angel named Jack and a little boy named Xavier, Cora navigates the afterlife doorfield and quickly learns that gods and monsters are very real indeed. Terrifying and tempting obstacles litter her path; only the power of belief – in the Otherworld, in her companions, and in herself – will return her to the land of the living.
She gets herself into a car accident and at this point we're tossed into the afterlife which is a menagerie of myths, legends and modern beliefs. I had such a great time reading her sharp wit. Cora was always on the ball, or at least appeared to be even if she was feeling insecure. She had a snappy attitude and a way of joking about everything even when times were tough. I liked her character very much.
You'll have to forgive the shortness of this review. It's one of my salvaged ones from my old blog. Wordpress took everything so I'm going off the shortened versions I submitted to Goodreads and Amazon.
