Narration type: Solo Narration
The Hero: Brody – He is a grim reaper, actually a leader of the reapers in the Canadian Guild. Though Lucifer had an idea that the citizens of Hell need mates. So he tasked Brody with running a dating service between human women from Earth and the demons in order to create minions since his numbers have been dwindling lately. Brody is the director so needs to set up an office for the dating guild. There is a woman who lives across the hall from the apartment Brody moved into that is first on the list and Lucifer wants her pregnant as soon as possible.
The heroine: Posie – she ends up helping out the new tenant across the hall. She is used to the people on the floor below who always dress up for cosplay, but this huge guy in a hooded robe is a bit different than anyone she has ever seen before. When she is let go from her secretarial job, she is offered a new job at the Grim Dating Agency.
The Story: Lucifer was quite funny in this one. He was prone to exaggeration about the latest apocalypse in Hell that is always on the horizon. For instance his missing the Backstreet Boys reunion concert was one of his latest red alerts. He also went ballistic when he was missing one of his duck socks which was very important because he was required to be stylish and post often on Hellstagram and Hellbook.
The story was different than any I have read before and was a bit silly at times and whimsical which is surprising since it was about reapers, demons, the devil and more. It was cute and interesting and the narration was perfect. I have to say I also loved the way his cloak swirled around him all the time, sort of like that one Dr. Strange wears. And the way Posie talked to the angels was pretty great.
This book was told in solo narration and was narrated by Troy Duran, my all time favorite narrator. I totally don’t mind solo narration when he is the narrator. He has a deep and sexy voice which I could listen to all day and he is great at putting emotion into his voice acting. He always does a terrific job and I look for audiobooks specifically with him as a narrator.
