As part of the Becoming Death Blog Tour, I'm pleased to welcome author, Melissa Brown onto the blog to tell us who her top five immortal characters are.
1) Spike- Buffy the Vampire Slayer / Angel
The baddest and hottest vampire on the planet.
2) Phil Conners-Groundhog's Day
Seriously, who doesn't love Groundhog's Day? This movie made me adore Bill Murray.
3) Claire Bennett-Heroes
A teenager with superpowers she doesn't want and is a bit unsure what to do with them, didn't I write that?
4) The Doctor- Doctor Who
No matter what body the Doctor comes back in he's still the Doctor and going to save the world. I am a huge Doctor and Rose shipper and the tenth doctor will always be my Doctor.
5) Thackery Binx- Hocus Pocus
He's an immortal cat that talks. Perfect.
Ever since her father's demise, Madison Clark knew death had her number. After losing her first job, she is ushered into the cryptic family business. Little does she know her family is hiding a dark secret; they are grim reapers, custodians of souls on their journey to the beyond. Madison expects her historic legacy to have benefits beyond immortality. What she doesn't expect is to still be struggling for cash while reaping souls on the side.
As if being Death's minion wasn't strenuous enough, Madison finds herself back at school with her worst enemy studying the ancient rules, methods and paperwork of her vocation. In a cascade of life changes: her best friend admits he’s in love with her and she starts a new job as a professional mourner, but she can’t help thinking her family might have other secrets.
Just when things are finally starting to feel normal again Death throws her a curveball: her next victim is her best friend. Madison must find a way to overcome the strict guidelines of being a grim reaper in order to save his life.
