The Golden Age of Death, book #5 of the CALLIOPE REAPER-JONES series
by Amber Benson
Synopsis:Meet Amber Benson's "authentically original creation"(Locus)…
My name is Calliope Reaper-Jones (Callie to my friends). I’m Death’s Daughter and—as of very recently—the (reluctant) head of my father’s company, Death, Inc.
I was gradually learning how to be a businesswoman. Had the power suits and shoes down, though the day to day was slow going. Then I was blindsided by Enemies Unknown and sent off to I-don’t-know-where. Not a good thing.
Now not only must my friends and family be frantic, but without a CEO, Death, Inc., can’t function. With the newly deceased left free to roam the Earth, it’s the zombie apocalypse come true.
I’ve got to get back—for my sake and the sake of, oh, all humanity…

Callie, the dark and funny protagonist in Amber Benson’s Calliope Reaper-Jones series, just can’t get a break!
Due to the untimely death of her father (murdered), Callie must now run the family business, Death, Inc. and try to find time for romance with her boyfriend Daniel, the former right hand of the devil.
The Golden Age Of Death is a wonderful mix of macabre humor, witty dialogue, horror and hairpin twists and turns. And without giving anything away, I’ve got to say that the ending completely blindsided me. I enjoyed this book very much.
LITERAL ADDICTION's Associate Reviewer gives The Golden Age of Death 4 1/2 skulls.
