On Halloween in her fourteenth year, Lizzy Mortimer saw her first death spector. Confused at first, Lizzy soon learns from her grandmother, Bizzy, that as descendant of Morgan le Fay, it is their job to prevent fate from taking its course when an unjust death is planned-a job that has been passed down for countless generations. Now that she is old enough to be a death catcher, Lizzy must learn all she can about preventing death from claiming its victims, a job more complicated than a simple warning. Only she didn't expect a feud older than time between two of the sisters of Avalon, Morgan le Fay and Vivienne Le Mort, to culminate on her watch as they try to wipe out King Arthur's last descendant. And their next victim is Drake Westfall, a boy that Lizzy just happens to be secretly in love with. Can Lizzy outwit fate before it's too late?

I really enjoyed this book. It was a cute fantasy story that uses the legend of king Arthur with a modern twist. It is also set up in a way that helps kids understand different types of literary terms. Read full review

Oh my gosh! I laughed so hard through this book! It was a fun read and I was really hoping this would end up being a series. I'm still holding out hope, so if you read this, Jennifer, please write another! Truman Award Nominee for 2013-2014 Read full review
