"The problem is she landed in purgatory. And while it’s not a fiery inferno, it’s certainly no heaven. It’s gray, ashen, and crumbling more and more by the day, and everyone has a job to do. Which doesn’t leave Velveteen much time to do anything about what’s really on her mind.
Velveteen aches to deliver the bloody punishment her killer deserves. And she’s figured out just how to do it. She’ll haunt him for the rest of his days. 
It’ll be brutal... and awesome.
But crossing the divide between the living and the dead has devastating consequences. Velveteen’s obsessive haunting cracks the foundations of purgatory and jeopardizes her very soul. A risk she’s willing to take—except fate has just given her reason to stick around: an unreasonably hot and completely off-limits coworker.
Velveteen can’t help herself when it comes to breaking rules... or getting revenge. And she just might be angry enough to take everyone down with her."

Plot: The storyline was flat there was no proper build up for all the areas that were suppose to be twists and turns in the plot. They just read as a lot of crazy information all at once.

Characters: So So So one dimensional. I can only tell you two things about velvet see was murdered and she is bitchy that is it, i don't know much about her to be invested and it is like that will the rest of the characters don't even get me started on the mess of an insta-love attempt with nick and velvet.

Final Thoughts: The plot needed to be mapped out better. When we read the summary of this book we are under the impression that Velveteen is stuck in purgatory and seeking revenge for her murder by hunting the man who killed her. Yet that is such a small part of the plot! We are mainly in purgatory learning the worlds rules and problems. I would have preferred that the problems were switched. I would have liked more time with one saw and revenge and a little time learning about the roles in purgatory it would have been a nice Segway into book two. However, after this book being so anti-climatic I would not even bother reading book 2. The only thing I could say is maybe people who like more darker and morbid books, may enjoy this.
