Death Wish by Megan Tayte Review

Publicado por Paulina J. en 19:00
IN SEARCH OF THE MEANING OF DEATH, SHE’LL FIND THE MEANING OF LIFE. 

The Ceruleans: mere mortals infused with power over life and death. Five books; one question: If the might of the heavens were in your hands, would you be sinner or saint? 

Seventeen-year-old Scarlett Blake is haunted by death. Her estranged sister has made the ultimate dramatic exit. Running away from school, joining a surfing fraternity, partying hard: that sounds like Sienna. But suicide? It makes no sense. 

Following in her sister’s footsteps, Scarlett comes to the isolated cove of Twycombe, Devon, with grand plans to uncover the truth. Alone. But she hasn’t reckoned on meeting two boys who are determined to help her. Luke: the blue-eyed surfer who’ll see the real Scarlett, who’ll challenge her, who’ll save her. And Jude: the elusive drifter with a knack for turning up whenever Scarlett’s in need. 

As Scarlett’s quest for the truth unravels, so too does her grip on reality as she’s always known it. Because there’s something strange going on in this little cove. A dead magpie circles the skies. A dead deer watches from the undergrowth. Hands glow with light. Warmth. Power.  

What transpires is a summer of discovery. Of what it means to conquer fear. To fall in love. To choose life. To choose death. 

To believe the impossible. 




*I received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest review*

This is a very good start to a series, a nice enjoyable read for when you're looking for a new series to start.

Things I liked:

  • This is a paranormal YA but it's written so subtle that you forget that you are reading a paranormal book so when you read the paranormal parts you enjoy them a lot.
  • I liked the journey Scarlett had, at the beginning of the book she was a mess but there was a reason for that and by the end of the book she has started to move on.
  • I do understand the appeal of the bad boy but I will always prefer the good boy and Luke is one of the best written male leads I've seen in a while, he is not a perfect boy but his flaws only make him more likable
Things I didn't like:

  • One word: Cliffhanger.
