On Halloween in her fourteenth year, Lizzy Mortimer saw her first death spector. Confused at first, Lizzy soon learns from her grandmother, Bizzy, that as descendant of Morgan le Fay, it is their job to prevent fate from taking its course when an unjust death is planned-a job that has been passed down for countless generations. Now that she is old enough to be a death catcher, Lizzy must learn all she can about preventing death from claiming its victims, a job more complicated than a simple warning. Only she didn't expect a feud older than time between two of the sisters of Avalon, Morgan le Fay and Vivienne Le Mort, to culminate on her watch as they try to wipe out King Arthur's last descendant. And their next victim is Drake Westfall, a boy that Lizzy just happens to be secretly in love with. Can Lizzy outwit fate before it's too late?

Lizzy comes off as younger than 14, even when crushing on high-school senior Drake Westfall, and high-school issues such as bullying, learning disabilities and overbearing/abusive parents receive a heavy-handed treatment.
