Goodreads Synopsis:

The first book in a spookily funny new series, where the living meets the dead and survival is a race against time. Perfect for fans of Skulduggery Pleasant and Who Let the Gods Out.

Welcome to the Embassy of the Dead. Leave your life at the door. (Thanks.)

When Jake opens a strange box containing a severed finger, he accidentally summons a grim reaper to drag him to the Eternal Void (yep, it's as fatal as it sounds) and now he's running for his life! But luckily Jake isn't alone - he can see and speak to ghosts.

Jake and his deadly gang (well dead, at least) - Stiffkey the undertaker, hockey stick-wielding, Cora, and Zorro the ghost fox - have one mission: find the Embassy of the Dead and seek protection. But the Embassy has troubles of its own and may not be the safe haven Jake is hoping for . . . 

Sampler Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

I am so excited for this. I literally saw other SA book bloggers getting this sampler and I was hoping that I would get one because it sounds so cool. 

Thank you so much to Pan Macmillan South Africa for sending me a sampler of this book! Just a small disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this sampler for free. Please note that this does not affect my opinions in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I am really excited to get the whole book to read. It definitely sounds like it is going to be a funny and great adventure to take part it. I am so curious to see who else we will meet. The writing was easy to get into because it had this really great humorous undertone to it. The plot sounds like it will be filled with funny moments that will linger, as well as some moments that should not be taken too lightheartedly. I am really intrigued to see what happens to Jack! Thank you so much to Pan Macmillan South Africa for providing me with a sampler of this book!

Yours in Reading,
