It is rare that I like a second book in a trilogy more than the first, but Leah Clifford raised the stakes in A Touch Morbid and I was absolutely captivated. Once I started, I simply could not put it down, and I read straight through in just over 2 hours. What is big and awesome in A Touch Mortal only gets better in this installment of the characters' story.

I love the characters. The characters of this trilogy are so unique, and they all are very different from one another. Eden was one character that really grew on me in this book. She was a good character in A Touch Mortal, but I definitely felt she grew a lot and was a character I genuinely liked with this book. I super loved Gabe in this one, he was already a great character, but oh my gosh, his character was just marvelous in this one. Despite the fact I think I'm supposed to hate Luke, I found myself falling hard for him in this one. Kristen is one of the best written characters I've read in a long time.

Leah Clifford doesn't leave a single dull moment. The entire book is fast paced and action packed. Everything that goes down is simply fascinating, and I loved every moment of it. While there is never a slow moment, Leah Clifford still manages to have this perfect pacing; nothing is ever too much or too little. Michael was an interesting guy. I felt like he was a complete creeper, but every scene with him in it were some of the most intense in the books. They were the ones where I was flipped pages at a crazy speed. In addition to everything else going down, there were also lots of sexy times in A Touch Morbid, which I wholeheartedly approved of.

A lot of questions are answered, yet Leah Clifford raises about a dozen more in the process.

A Touch Morbid is the amazing sequel to one of my favorite 2011 reads, A Touch Mortal. This time the stakes are higher, the world is darker, and dun dun dun: CLIFFHANGER! :flings self off cliff:

I had a hard time writing the review for A Touch Morbid. I loved it a lot, and I didn't want to ramble like I did with my review of the first book. So after I finished ATM2, I didn't write a review for a few weeks. I was scared to say anything because I hadn't read any reviews of ATM2 before I read it. I only knew what it was about because Leah revealed the summary and flap copy before I got my review copy. The ARC has no summary on it.

But, see, Leah's twists are so twisty and there's so many of them somebody could spoil the book for me and I'd still really enjoy reading it. And trust me, the twists for A Touch Morbid are insane.

I reread Mortal before I read Morbid, and I actually recommend people do that because of the way Leah writes. She doesn't explain anything, and I like that type of writing style. It makes me feel more in touch with Eden, who also doesn't really understand the world. These are the books where you have to pay a lot of attention to them. You can't be doing two things at once.

I don't know what to say about this book without giving it all away. I want to talk about Sullivan, a new character who is... strange and interesting. I liked her a lot and the weird thing is I guessed her ending for ATM2. There's no clues for Sullivan, so the fact that I knew was very strange. It's like I'm psychic or something.

And it's steamier. Eden and Az can't lip-lock kiss because Eden's breath will make Az fall and that's the last thing we want, right? RIGHT?

I finally finished this after a week of trying to read it. This has absolutely nothing to do with the book itself. Actually, I loved this book more then I did, A Touch Mortal, it's first book. I'm not sure if it's because it kept me interested in what was going on or what. I think it was because I was more aware of how their worlds worked and who was who and what was what if that makes any sense at all. I had a hard time following the first one, but that's for another review that I never got to (which I will because I'm thinking of re-reading it.)

I think the reason I enjoyed this one a bit more was because of the pacing, and by that I mean not everything happened at once. It didn't feel rushed. We didn't know to much about one character, and we would get a glimpse of what was happening with character B but not the full on. (Sorry I'm trying not ruin the first book for those who haven't read it) we got to see more of the fallen and the bound.

As for the characters themselves I liked a few of them and then some I didn't care to much for. I liked the new character Sullivan more then the older characters. I'm trying so hard not to mention the characters because in my opinion it gives away some of book one. I will say that I don't particularly care for Eden she seems a little stuck up, and thinking she better then everyone else.

Format: Hardcover
This book is a continuation of the Touch Mortal series. Eden and Az are circling each other, unable to kiss, but still desperately in love. Kristen has fallen into the depths of her schizophrenia, emerging into sanity often, but having trouble maintaining it. Gabe is "off" due to his newly Fallen status. The characters as a whole are in disarray with Eden in particular withholding a dangerous secret from Az.

The plot of the novel is roughly the same as the first book, the reader will learn more about the characters and the Siders. The author handles the delicate relationships between the characters perfectly. The characters are very dynamic, always changing as more events come up and decisions are made-demonstrating the author's skill. The plot is intricately laid so as to maximize the readers' understanding. The reader will thoroughly enjoy this novel.

The events of the book were fast-paced, but not so fast as to confuse the reader or force him/her to reread a scene. The romance between Eden and Az is believable, the reader will likely root for them. Gabe and Kristen's despair is palpable, they will appear very sympathetic to the reader. Overall, this book is shockingly well-written and an intense read. A Touch Morbid is recommended to young adult/teen/adult readers.
