Evangeline Stone had one heck of a life—short though it may have been—until she is again, Three Days to Dead. While most of the world speeds through life unaware of the real dangers lurking all around them, Stone has been fighting mystical dark creatures to keep innocent humans safe. She never thought she would be branded a traitor.

Evy always figured she would die at the hands of her unwavering foes. She was right. She did. So how in the heck could she be blinking up at some stranger’s face? Moreover, exactly whose body does she apparently have? Is this for real?

Evy has been given a magical gift of three days. She has been marked a traitor against her triad, but that only touches on the far more disastrous issues surrounding her death that she must discover. Evy is in for a mind-numbing three days of hell, confusion, and shocking enlightenment as her investigations bring her closer to the truth, and to her final passing.

When alone, the dark city full of enemies is a daunting place. Evy needs to draw out her former allies to utilize their aid and knowledge in her quest. Newfound allies are ready to join her fight as the mystery unravels into a frightening plot: a play for dominance by a mystical lunatic and the evil army at his disposal. The evil which Evy fights her way into is far worse than anything she could have imagined, and she just might have hand-delivered the final part of the equation.

Author Kelly Meding delivers an dark, action-packed, non-stop dose of gripping urban fantasy. Unlike the usual protagonists and paranormal characters who fill the pages of books in this genre, Meding brings a surprising array of originality—and the unexpected—to make for a read that can never be called boring. In addition to the typical vampires and werewolves, Meding brings to life fairies, goblins, rock creatures, gargoyles, and more.

A blend of similar aspects from several books comes to mind as a comparison to Three Days to Dead: Tolkien's Rings trilogy, Blue Moon by Anonymous, The Neverending Story by Michael Ende, typical urban fantasy novels, even some of puppeteer Jim Henson’s work. Fans of most kinds of fantasy should find Three Days to Dead a real treat.
