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.

Dying for a Living by Kory M. Shrum

Dying for a Living (Jesse Sullivan #1)Should we laugh? Should we cry? We ARE talking about a story of death, over and over and over for one necronite who dies so others may live when their time is up. Yep, there’s a new paranormal being in town and they are “dying” to be read about! Kory M. Shrum’s DYING FOR A LIVING is about humans born with a special gift, the ability to rise from the dead, kind of like zombies, but with all of their parts intact and no human body parts on the menu. But wait, there’s more, they make a living dying, a good living, unless someone is out to stop them, once and for all.

Meet Jesse, who has died over and over for others. She is a snark and attitude lover’s dream come true, unless her lack of filters gets her foot shoved deeply into her mouth. Then there is the question, is Jesse a hero or an anti-hero? Why is she under investigation by the FBI for murder? Why are police lugging her around like a sack of potatoes? And who is the guy who is molting feathers all over the place? Why can’t anyone see him but Jesse? Jesse is dying to find the answers to keep herself alive long enough to die again.

Kory M. Shrum has created a kaleidoscope of characters, twists and leaves her readers absorbed in the huge world building she has done. Definitely on the quirky side, a light read with unique ideas! Give it a try!
