About the Book

Original Publication Date: March 22, 2011

Setting: Modern New Orleans

Just when he thought things couldn’t get any worse…

Nick Gautier’s day just keeps getting better and better. Yeah, he survived the zombie attacks, only to wake up and find himself enslaved to a world of shapeshifters and demons out to claim his soul.

His new principal thinks he’s even more of a hoodlum than the last one, his coach is trying to recruit him to things he can’t even mention and the girl he’s not seeing, but is, has secrets that terrify him.

But more than that, he’s being groomed by the darkest of powers and if he doesn’t learn how to raise the dead by the end of the week, he will become one of them…



The Hero: Nick (CON)

My name is Nick Gautier and this is the story of my life. First off, get the name right. It's pronounced Go-shay not Go-tee-ay or Goat-chay (that has an extra H in it and as my mom says we're so poor we couldn't afford the extra letter). I'm not some fancy French fashion designer. I'm just a regular kid... well as regular as someone with a stripper for a mother and a career felon for a father can be. But as my mom so often says friends are...

The Story Behind The Story

The concept of Grim came late one night while Sherri was trying to sleep. For some reason, she had an image of a Grim Reaper (probably has a lot to do with the Grim Reaper hourglass on her dresser, but let's not insert logic here) in her head. She was trying to imagine what a real Grim Reaper would be like. More to the point, what Death himself would be like. Suddenly, the perfect image was there. Complete with his companions, Pain & Suffering. But what made her start laughing was the idea that Death would be severely OCD.

In the book Ambrose points out Savitar has a less than noble past so what gives him the right to judge Nick
