Lex, a teenage Grim Reaper, has the power to damn souls - and it’s getting out of control. Her boyfriend, Driggs, is dead - sort of. She’s a fugitive, on the run from the maniacal new mayor of Croak and the townspeople who want to see her pay the price for her misdeeds.
Uncle Mort rounds up the Junior Grims to flee Croak once again, but this time they’re joined by Grotton, the most powerful Grim of all time. Their new mission is clear: Fix his mistakes, or the Afterlife will cease to exist, along with all the souls in it. The gang heads for Necropolis, the labyrinth-like capital city of the Grimsphere. There, they discover that the Grimsphere needs a reboot. To do that, the portals to the Afterlife must be destroyed...but even that may not be enough to fix the damage.
Things go from bad to worse, and when at last the fate of the afterlife and all the souls of the damned hang in the balance, it falls to Lex and her friends to make one final, impossible choice.

I would recommend this to friends who like reading "teen" books - I am an adult in her 40's so it's not often I find a teen book that has a story I can get into.
This is a different take on grim reapers, so that made it quite enjoyable to read
It's a good story - give it a go.
"Excellent story and narrator "
Great end to a wonderful beginning. I was drawn in by the story and the narrator kept my attention and I finished the trilogy in the span of 2 weeks. I wish the story never ended but I enjoyed every second of it.
"Perfect trilogy ender"
Heartwrenchingly terrible, great - perfect and amazing. I swear to god if anyone ever tries to make this into a movie I will damn them, I will damn them right there on the spot. Oh wait, that wasn't the point... I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I can't help myself. This book, this trilogy, is exactly how it should be, Gina Damico you are brilliant.
Sacrifice for the greater good. Wow.
Oh every time Mort catches Lex and Driggs in the act. SO FUNNY!
The ending. Heartbreaking. Talk about selflessness.
How far would you go to right a wrong?
I am sooooo sad to see this series end. I really loved the town of Croak and Lex and the gang. I'll miss these Grims, I feel invested in them. That means Ms. Damico did her job right. I love that even though this was a quite heavy book, it still had those moments of humor which was desperately needed. I'm so glad I picked up the series. HIGHLY recommended.
"Start to finish fun"
This is the last of the series and it's wrapped up so neatly. The whole trio is well worth the listen. Adult or young adult this book and series is a solid read for all!
Why isn't this series a flipping movie or something because I loved it. All though the ending Brought tears to my eyes I was happy lol. U need to red this series or u haven't been touched by the grim reaper story's of Croak, Scorch, and Rouge
a great ending to a great series, well performed by the narrator, I would recommend them all even if sci-fi fantasy isn't your thing
"Dubious decisions and actions kills the story"
what is an imaginative world comes crashing in this last book. One particular decision not to use crashing doesn't stick trough out and really feel like the author needed to add 100 pages and came up with that excuse.
didn't buy it and detracted from enjoying the last book of the series.
"I Wish the Show Would Go On"
Give. Me. More.
Would you ask a father to pick his favorite child? I love them all for who they are and what they bring to the story.
Yes, the previous 2 books in the trilogy. I thoroughly enjoy her performance and would be happy to have her read other books I'm interested in.
Yes and no. Yes, because the book is gripping and I couldn't put it down. No, because this is the final chapter and I didn't want the story to end.
One of the best endings I have ever had the privilege of reading. An excellent trilogy.
I really loved this series. It was funny, well write, with a great story line. I would recommend the Croak series to anyone looking for good books to read!
"Dark but satisfying"
I didn't read the print version of this book only listened to the Audio which was amazing.
I loved them all. While there was a lot going on in each book the character development was excellent.
Yes, just as great. I love her narration, her ability to transport you into the story.
