I'm not sure what I think about this series. I enjoy it, then it pisses me off. I've read MANY books with love triangles (that seems to be the thing to do these days) and I can deal with most of them. I'm not sure why this particular love triangle drives me as crazy as it does. I guess it is because there is no triangle in my mind. I'm not a Falin fan of any kind. I want Alex and Death to find a way to be together. That being said, this ending really upset me (you'll understand when you read it).
Now the story is great. You get to see more into Death's life (is that what you call his existence?). We see more into the other soul collectors, though not as much as Death's. We also get to see more of how Falin works (whether it is his choice or not). I just don't like him.
