Waking Up Dead By Skye Savoy

Waking Up Dead

 *Provided for Review by Publisher*

Genre: Paranormal Romance


Before death came to collect Ava Berry in the form of one mouth-watering fallen angel named Suriyel, she was a newly divorced, 51-year-old caterer with Suriyel and his magic amulet, she’s now in the body of her 20-something niece who died on the same night. Ava’s hell-bent on catching a killer even if it means not being heaven-bound anymore.

Fending off a possessed dumpster and an Elvis impersonator while dealing with her deceased mother who’s back as her pimped-out, Hoverround®-riding, guardian angel, are a lot easier than keeping her heart away from Suriyel. The soul-collector risks being thrown back into the center of the earth so he can protect and teach Ava to use the powers of the amulet. Good thing, too, because she soon finds herself using it to save his life and what remains of her lineage.


 Ava wakes up and believe she is having a kind of out of body experience, but it soon comes to light that she is out of body alright, but not in the way she thinks and when an angel comes to collect her, she isn’t at all happy about the situation;

“I refuse to let you do a beam-me-up-Scotty with me if it’s the last thing I do!” With my free hand, I reached for the post by the headboard and hung on with all my might. “No sir-ee. I’m not going anywhere with… whatever you call yourself, period!”

Ava refuses to go anywhere until she finds out how she got into this situation, who killed her. Ava teams up with the angel, Suriyel, making a deal that is he helps her find her killer, then she will go willingly with him. Suriyel gives Ava the opportunity to live again, to inhabit another body in order to aid her in finding her killer, a younger body at that, her nieces. But things don’t go to plan with something trying to kill Ava again putting the ones around her in danger. I got a little confused at times with the story, it isn’t what I expected that’s for sure. I liked the humorous moments throughout this read but it just didn’t suck me in or enthral me.

This doesn't sound to bad. I like the synopsis, but this is one I have to read with caution obviously. I take my angels very seriously LOL! Great review hon, thank you :)

I think what you have to keep in mind with me is that I can't seem to get into eBooks as much as regular books so I tend to judge them a little more harshly sometimes :)

@Jet - LOL! That is so weird. It is the words that count. I mean I understand because I prefer paperback/hardcover books more, but don't be mad at the ebook LOL! Still it does suck that t=you weren't into this as much, Still, it doesn't seem like it is just the ebook itself, it is what was in it LOL! Thanks for the great review again hon :)
