Day or Night
Day. The night can’t be trusted.

Single or Taken

Cat or Dog
Dog. Cats can’t be trusted.

Upper body or Lower body
Top. Er, top body. Upper. Whatever, shut up.

Dark, like the richest cocoa.

None, if you’re doing it right.


For those readers who may not know you,please tell them a few tidbits about you, Charlotte? 

You know how humans are just… sad, pathetic playthings for supernatural entities? I’m gonna fix that, once I work my way into Heaven and find out who’s in charge. You’re welcome, humanity.


What did you do before the story begun?

I was an illustration student at the Carrion Art Institute. Maybe I’ll finish my degree someday. Prior to that I was a teenager… but let’s not dredge up the past, okay?


What is your favorite part/memory?

When Lin (curse her heart) taught me how to jump really friggin’ high. I haven’t felt that good since… well, since.


If you and your Adam would go on a date, where would it be and why?

If Adam took me on a date—and it wouldn’t be a date because we’re friends and that’s gross and weird—it would be something dumb like paintball or laser tag. Those are like the only things he can beat me at.


What are your favorite weapons?

I trust Sophia, and I think she trusts me. (Sophia’s my Scythe, if you haven’t met her.)


What/who would you never want to come across again?

Baphomet. Not a fun guy.


If you could have a re-match. With who would that be?

Iris Mascagni. If I’d known then what I know now… Oh, or Ersatz, but for entirely different reasons.


How do you see your future?

If I can achieve my goals and set the world straight, everything should be peachy.


Do you have to tell anything else noteworthy?

Consider me the patron saint of misfortune. If you know someone who died suffering, if you lost somebody close to you, I get it. You’re the ones I’m fighting for, so that never has to happen again.

Book Description: Sohee Min is a freelance photographer with a unique and deadly ability—one that a local Crafter would kill to get her hands on. Reapers continue to lurk in the shadows, but Death is most frightening when it steps into the light. Demons, specters, vampires, and other foul creatures are out in full force, and it’s going to take more than one death eater to put them in their place. Torn between life and love, Sohee will have to choose which she values more—and soon…
