When Evelyn Brennan's parents are slaughtered without warning, she naturally assumes that her life is over-especially when she herself is drained dry by a vampire. To her surprise, however, she awakens sixteen years later to discover that she has been reborn as a banshee, a creature of myth with the power to foresee death. After she is taken in by her great aunt and fellow banshee, Kendyl, Evelyn kws she cant return home. Her former life is over, and her new life as a banshee has begun. But when she learns her baby brother is still alive, Evelyn embarks on a journey to keep him safe - a quest that leads her to realize both Theodore, a persistent vampire, and Dovan, a mysterious yet charming grim reaper are shadowing both her and her brother. Propelled into a world she does t understand, Evelyn must do whatever it takes to keep her loved ones safe - matter what the cost. Cheating Death is the tale of a young woman's struggle to adapt to life as a creature she never believed was real. Now, Evelyn must come to terms with her new role as a banshee as if her life (and her brother's) depended it.
