Styx & Stoned (The Grim Reality Series Book 2) Kindle Edition
Normally, a trip like that would be a dream come true for a widowed, mother of three, who just happens to be grim reaper. Here’s the thing though, situations rarely work out as I imagine they should. And usually not in my favor.
This time isn’t any different. Instead of the endless free drinks and gambling I’d been hoping for, I get the opposite—demons, water zombies, and a bimbo ghost roommate, who gives new meaning to the phrase dead drunk.
But it’s not all bad. I’m making new friends, learning spectacular reaper skills, and saving souls. I just hope I don’t lose mine before I can get the Underworld all sorted out.

Our heroine is offered an all-expenses-paid trip to Vegas. Well, of course, there's a catch. And oh, what a marvelous catch it is. We meet new characters I hope continue into the next books. Her porter (he transports the souls to their ultimate destination) is the original grumpy old man. And the demons and angels she meets are wonderful. Oh, and the part-time job she's offered sounds pretty good – Ferryman on the River Styx. Time is different over there. What seems like hours on the River is actually only seconds in our mundane world. She could be home with her kids more, get her housework done, and still make a chest full of money. Daily. What's not to like?
I will order Book 3 soon but must finish packing first, otherwise, I'll sit and read, and not be ready when the movers arrive in September. Yep, these books go on my shelf next to the Moonlight Dragon books and the Reaper's Inc books. Fun reads, all.
In spite of these frustrations, the book has enough laugh-out-loud moments that I am glad to have purchased it, but I don’t think I’ll buy the next book in the series due to the problems mentioned above.
If there’s a 3rd book in this series, I won’t be getting much sleep tonight.
Being a Vegas native, the best part of the book for me is the Las Vegas setting-the author hit it right on the money ( this pun intended)! This is where the characters are terrific from Hal the Porter (so cool-very hippy dippy) to Mara whom I LOVE LOVE LOVE! She is a little bit high fashion model, a little bit biker chick and a whole lot COOL! She was a pleasant surprise and I could read a series about her! The Angels and Demons and of course everything along the River Styx that would involve the Grim Reaper storyline was super also.
I will say that the humorous tone of the book is right on the mark! I really enjoy a bit of dry and snarky tone in books like these and this one has it in spades! (Check out the couple at the River Styx asking to speak to the "Manager" for better service!)
With the help of a demon, Mara, who may become one of Lisa's best friends, she tries to help out before ferry waiting area overflows back to the world. Add in the council members, who represent the "good" and "evil" in the world is an interesting twist and shows a higher view in the world order.
Lots of fun, some unexpected appearances and information overload for her on this new adventure.
In this installment, Lisa gets to try her hand at a new position with GRS, ferryman on the River Styx. She uses her mother powers, her reaper powers and meets new friends along the way.
The classic Boone Brux dead pan humor flows off the page and has you laughing one minute and speed reading because so much is happening in the plot the next. I absolutely love this series and hope there are a lot more of Lisa antics to come!

Going to the conference should have been exciting but it felt more like work the closer she got to the hotel. However Vegas for seven days could be a lot of fun and it was a long way from. But finding out that the Board was made up of angels and demons and that there was a serious problem was not the way she wanted to spend the next 7 days. Charon has gone a wolf but not having resigned was still getting paid whilst the bank of the River Styx had a severe overcrowding problem. Worse once it got too bad the ghosts would start manifesting on the earth plane. The Board had a solution - she would ferry the boat and clear the backlog with the help of a demon and Hall (her Porter). Add in demons, possession, Nyx, Charon on the warpath and the development of new powers. Will she be stuck as the ferry person? Will she and Mara survive the perils of the River Styx? Why has Nyx taken an interest in her?
I love Lisa, she's sassy, mouth in gear before brain that I love in well written characters.
I do hope that Mara her new demon BFF will make more appearances in New books as she's fantastic.
