Once Dead, Twice Shy

Title: Once Dead, Twice Shy     Author: Kim Harrison   Publisher: Harper Teen   Number Of Pages: 232  Publication Date: May 26th,2009


Synopsis from back of book: Madison’s prom was killer—literally. For some reason she’s been targeted by a dark reaper—yeah, that kind of reaper—intent on getting rid of her body and soul. But Madison realizes she has to take control of her own fate once and for all, before it takes control of her. Well, if she believed in that stuff.

New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison’s teen debut comes to Technicolor life with mischievous humor, attitude, and enough paranormal thrills to leave readers dying for the sequel.


Review: Once Dead, Twice Shy is a really good book. It has witty characters, an interesting storyline, and was a really fun read. Although, I really think that the plot was too rushed! Oh, and you should probably read the short story in Prom Dates From Hell because it provides a lot of information about the book.  I felt Once Dead, Twice Shy  had a good story, but I wish that  it was written a little better. I really don’t have too much to say about Once Dead, Twice Shy.  I will definitely read the sequel though.


I recommend this book if you like paranormal books, Kim Harrison books, and YA novels.


  1. Just read and reviewed this myself today! I really liked it, but yes, it did seem rushed.

  2. I haven't read anything by Kim, but I do love paranormal books and it sounds fun. I'd love to read it at some point. Nice review.
