I wasn't sure if I was going to like this story, but when I realised it was about a girl who could communicate with animals, I couldn't resist, since I'm an ardent animal lover, and I'm glad I decided to read it. I also liked the original idea that there are two 'grim reapers' one for animals and one for humans.

The two main characters are charming and easy to identify with and the animal characters are delightful. Even the scene where Melanie has to let her beloved old dog, 'Spotacus' go to his rest is very moving and although sad, the situation has a feeling of 'rightness' and I could fully empathise, having had to say goodbye to several much loved dogs myself.

Secondary characters, Melanie's brother, and Tim's mother, are well drawn and feel real and an important part of the story.  It's a quick read, with a fairly sexy love scene, and the only problem I had was a niggling worry about the lack of sympathy likely to be shown by the new reaper.

A complimentary copy of this ebook was gifted by the author in exchange for my honest review. I give it five comets.

Welcome to Novo: Your new home in Space

For Ariana Skyee, Planet Novo was everything it promised to be until the authorities introduced "The Calling" as their response to repopulation. Now, all seventeen-year-olds are to participate in this Bachelor-style pageant to find their perfect match, marry, and have children.

But that's not Ariana's only concern. Thanks to the government-sanctioned memory erase, Ariana has no recollection of Zane, the mystery boy who haunts her dreams. Things are further complicated when the pageant commences and her feelings for fellow Cadet Cal Remus intensify. Together, they start to realize not everything about their new home is as it seems.

Entangled in a dangerous web of deceit, Ariana sets out to identify the truth. Conflicted over warnings that Cal isn’t trustworthy and alarmed at the government's increasing interest in her, she doesn’t know where to turn. But her search for the truth comes at a high personal price. When her world implodes, discovering the past shapes her future with devastating consequences.
