First off I love the play on the title (Hym and Hur = Him and Her). I thought that was brilliant! This a very quick read under 50 pages but it is fun, comical, and lets you know there is no tricking Death! Hym and Hur are young and will never age so to entertain themself they like to play pranks on humans but they have to get the pranks approved by Death first who has been known to add his own spin to the prank!

Hym and Hur remind me of two kids wreaking havoc on unsuspecting victims but they never really mean to cause harm so it's kinda like they are not really all that "bad" but then again they aren't 100% "good". But then toss in a bigger bully and your open to mayhem where things can and usually do spiral out of control. This is one of those kinds of stories. An interlude and brief break from the norm that you can enjoy reading without having to think it to death so much.
