On the morning before her 67th death, it is business as usual for Jesse Sullivan: meet with the mortician, counsel soon-to-be-dead clients, and have coffee while reading the latest regeneration theory. Jesse dies for a living, literally. As a Necronite, she is one of the population's rare 2% who can serve as a death replacement agent, dying so others don't have to. Although each death is different, the result is the same: a life is saved, and Jesse resurrects days later with sore muscles, new scars, and another hole in her memory. But when Jesse is murdered and becomes the sole suspect in a federal investigation, more than her freedom and sanity are at stake. She must catch the killer herself-or die trying.… (més)

Dying for a Living Boxset: Books 1-3 of Dying for a Living Series
By: Kory M. Shrum
Narrated by: Hollie Jackson

Wow, this is such an incredible premise for a story! Death replacement agents! Someone who dies in the persons place. First, A person pays a special psychic and they do a study of the person they are paid to check on. Then the psychic determines how that person will die and when. They then hire a rare Death Replacement Agent and they follow them all day until the time they need to step in. All the technical issues are described in the book. This world is not quite like ours but still has the prejudices and it comes in play against anyone with this gift.

In book 1, Jesse is the main character, and she is one of these agents. She is almost killed for good when someone sets her up. The rest of the book not only gives the reader a clue about society and the Church's view about bringing back the dead but the threats against the people with the gift. The book also lets us know what it's like from the agents point of view. The characters are introduced, they are all very well developed and interesting. Book 1 looks for who is behind Jesse's murder attempt. 5 star book!

Book 2, many agents go missing and some of the people the agents have saved also are missing. Jesse and friends try to find out what is going on since they are on the list to disappear. More information about the characters and Jesse's background is exposed to the reader too. So many great characters in here and the interactions are emotional and engaging. The powers Jesse and her other friend that's an agent is growing. 5 star book!

Book 3, this book is more about Brinkley who is Jesse's boss. He is the one who got her into the field of being a replacement agent. It bounces back and forth from present to his past memories and back. The reason is that he knows he is going to die. It's a touching book and painful due to what he saw and experienced. 4 star book!

The books are incredibly, a unique take on dead coming back to life, prejudices, a fun and heartwarming fantasy, lots of suspense and scary situations, friendships, and what to do with your life.

The narration was good! I never once thought about the narration. When the narrator makes a mistake, it's obvious so no narrator wants you to remember its not real people. To me, I really got into it and they seemed like real people! 5 stars for the narrator! ( )

Well written but undermined by the rather silly magic system. My feeling is either do the work to come up with something plausible or make it a mystery. Magnets. Magnets? ( )

A great concept that fell a little short in execution. I enjoyed this book, but found it confusing at times, and I didn't really click with the main character. However, the writing was solid and the supporting characters were interesting. I'd read another in the series. ( )

Really wish I could give a better rating. There are lots of things I can forgive for a main character but being stupid is not one of them. I can manage the fact she is very unlikable, a girl is allowed to have issues, but the lack of brain... ught.
The plot is captivating and kept me curious enough to finish the book even if I wanted to cut Jesse's head off myself. 5 stars for it and 1 for main character. ( )

More like a 3.5, but went with 4 stars for originality. Jesse Sullivan is a necronite (the polite word for zombie) who works as a death replacement agent for a living. For a small fee, a death replacement agent will die for the client so the client doesn't have to. Of course the necronite comes back to life a few days later.

Jesse is the star of the show, but she has a group of interesting supporting characters. Lane, her boyfriend, Ally her assistant, Brinkley her handler, and some other friends and enemies that make her life interesting. And dangerous, since apparently someone is killing off death replacement agents.

It was a book that I could, and did, put down several times, but the story always pulled me back in quickly. I'm not much of a zombie (or vampire, or shapeshifter) fan, but this book was able to keep me reading anyway. Maybe because Jesse behaved as any human who just happened to be a necronite.
