In Life, A.D. you have two choices: join the program or face the consequences.
Seventeen-year-old Dez Donnelly crashes headlong into fate on the side of a rural highway, her life ending in a violent collision of steel and screaming brakes. The train that delivers her newly departed soul to the crossroads of the afterlife won’t be carrying her to the sweet hereafter until she accepts her abrupt end and learns to let go of the life she’ll never finish.
Her new reality is conduct manuals, propaganda, and unrelenting staff, all part of a system to ease her transition from life to death, while helping her earn her way out of limbo. Atman City, beautiful and enticing, is an ever-present temptation that is strictly off limits to underage souls. The promise of adventure proves too strong, and beneath the city’s sheen of ethereal majesty, Dez discovers a world teeming with danger.
Welcome to Life, A.D. where being dead doesn’t mean you’re safe, and the only thing harder than getting out of limbo is getting through it.
Life A.D was a really good book. no – A REALLY GOOD book. It was just so…great. I will probably find myself repeating that word a lot in this review. I mean it had a GREAT beginning, middle and end. There can’t be much more you could ask for.
I read this way quicker than I anticipated. The GREAT characters definitely made that possible though. I got really attatched to them and keep on thinking about them. Dez was obviously my favourite character but her aside, I really liked Bobby (I think that was his name…). He was so funny and spoke like he was from another time.
There were some new things to the paranormal genre that I really liked and appreciated.
I think Life A.D. holds high potential for a fantastic series. It was GREAT and I really do think that people would really get into it if it became a series.
It was interesting and ,well, GREAT. I would recommend it and am looking forward to finding out what will happen from now on in the series.
