With the fifth and final installment in the series, The Golden Age of Death, Calliope Reaper-Jones has (sometimes reluctantly) transformed from Death’s Daughter to Death herself. Shortly after assuming her position as CEO of Death, Inc., Calliope was transported to an uncanny realm, leaving friends and family to worry, and the unable-to-die to overrun the Earth. Join us in a celebration of Amber Benson’s vivid imagination – zombie apocalypse accoutrements optional.
Amber will also sign in Redondo Beach on February 26.
My name is Calliope Reaper-Jones (Callie to my friends). I'm Death's Daughter and - as of very recently - the (reluctant) head of my father's company, Death, Inc.
I was gradually learning how to be a businesswoman. Had the power suits and shoes down, though the day to day was slow going. Then I was blindsided by Enemies Unknown and sent off to I-don't-know-where. Not a good thing.
Now not only must my friends and family be frantic, but without a CEO, Death, Inc., can't function. With the newly deceased left free to roam the Earth, it's the zombie apocalypse come true.
I've got to get back - for my sake and the sake of, oh, all humanity...

Known as Tara on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," Benson delivers the first in a new series of killer urban fantasy novels featuring Calliope Reaper-Jones, whose father happens to be Death himself.
Calliope, Death's Daughter, owes a debt to Cerberus, the three-headed dog that guards the gates of hell--a debt that involves a trip to Purgatory, Las Vegas, ancient Egypt, and a discount department store that's more frightening than any creature she'll ever encounter.
Death's daughter Calliope Reaper-Jones just wants to make it big in the Big Apple like any other working girl. And now her older sister has made a deal with the Devil himself to engage in a hostile takeover of both Death Inc. and Heaven--once they get Callie out of the way.
Calliope Reaper-Jones is now the brand-new President of Death, Inc. With the Board of Death breathing down her neck and her dad's copy of "How to Be Death (A Fully Annotated Guide)" unopened, Callie's really feeling the tension. And when the guide book is stolen at a fancy formal dinner, Callie has to figure out how to be the boss.
