From Olivie Blake, the New York Times bestselling author of The Atlas Six comes Masters of Death, a story about vampires, ghosts, and death itself!
Viola Marek is a struggling real estate agent, and a vampire. But her biggest problem currently is that the house she needs to sell is haunted. The ghost haunting the house has been murdered, and until he can solve the mystery of how he died, he refuses to move on.
Fox D’Mora is a medium, and though is also most-definitely a shameless fraud, he isn’t entirely without his uses—seeing as he’s actually the godson of Death.
When Viola seeks out Fox to help her with her ghost-infested mansion, he becomes inextricably involved in a quest that neither he nor Vi expects (or wants). But with the help of an unruly poltergeist, a demonic personal trainer, a sharp-voiced angel, a love-stricken reaper, and a few high-functioning creatures, Vi and Fox soon discover the difference between a mysterious lost love and an annoying dead body isn’t nearly as distinct as they thought.

Masters of Death is a standalone book by Olivie Blake. I had a wonderful time with this novel, Olivie has a really unique way of writing and it just resonates with me. You get to know all the characters’ backgrounds and the plot just blossoms as you read. The story is told in a nonlinear fashion so might be a tad confusing as you go if you’re not paying close attention.
Our leading lady, Viola, is a real estate agent who is also a vampire. She winds up getting stuck trying to sell a house that is haunted. The ghost keeps messing up inspections/tours and just will not go away. Her only option is to turn to a medium named Fox for his help. As the godson of Death, Fox has some strings he can pull. This time though, Death doesn’t answer. We find out Death is missing and Viola and Fox have to find him. It isn’t an easy mission though, things just keep popping up in their way. A game is afoot and everyone wants a seat at the table.
