This book felt like it had two distinct halves. Before Jodi discovered what she was and was still living among the humans, and after she discovered she was ophi and went to live among her own kind. Besides Jodi, Alex is the only constant character in the book. And we get to know very little about him in the first half as he acts just like a weird stalker. But, even in the second half, I didn't feel his character developed any depth or that I managed to build up any real connection with him. Neither can I say I felt much of a connection with Jodi. The characters felt mostly to be one dimensional and tedious.
Also, there were a few things about this that bothered me, and a few that verged on the ridiculous. One being the ease with which Jodi managed to sever her relationship with her mother. I would have expected more tears, sleepless nights, a bout of depression etc. And no one has ever held both the statues hands before....in all those years...come on!!
Then there's Jodi's relationships, and yes, she had two in this short book. But neither of them captured my attention, there was no fire, no passion, just blandness.
The whole book had a kind of rushed feel to it. It was an easy read but I felt like a lot had been left out or not explained thoroughly enough. It was also quite predictable and nothing took me by surprise.
I couldn't say with any conviction that I will continue on with this series but I'll see how I feel when the time comes. Never say never!
Touch of Death starts off with an ordinary girl who seemed to be accident prone, nearly killing everything and everyone she comes into contact with. This really blows for a girl like Jodi Marshall, even more so when she can't even kiss the boy she likes. But Jodi is destined for greater things and not being able to a kiss a boy is the least of her problems. In this book, we are introduced to a whole new world full of necromancers and a twist in Greek mythology's Medusa. Kelly Hashway creates one book that is pure excellence and will leave you with mind blown goodness.
Jodi was a fantastic character. I loved her immediately because I felt like I could relate to her easily. She was really cool, but was a powerful girl even before everything went down. Jodi was a little clumsy and awkward, but a believable and real character. She had a strong voice in the beginning, but even more so by the end of the book. Jodi was the type of person who was brave and thought ahead. She was definitely funny too. What I admired most about Jodi was how she takes everything with a mature and graceful manner, no matter how weird or unbelievable things felt to her. Jodi had a heart of gold and was an overall good person. She had morals and beliefs and with all the power at her fingertips, she doesn't abuse it. She uses it for good and is never tempted. I loved how Jodi took into consideration of the feelings of the living and the dead. She truly cared for everything and everyone. Jodi doesn't brush things off, but takes responsibility for her actions. She embraced her true identity and power and made sacrifices that left me in awe.Read more ›
First of all, the characters. I didn't connect to any of them. Jodi was our main character and I never really connected to her. She was pushed around easily and did what others wanted her to do ninety percent of the time. I also felt like she was over-emotional and she had no common sense. She spent the first half of the book accepting that she had a stalker, called the cops once, and then pretty much welcomed him after that. I couldn't deal with it. If you have a stalker, you don't hide him in your closet and hear him out. You call the cops the second he puts a dead rat in your room and you lock his ass behind bars. I get it, doing any of that wouldn't contribute to the story and it would hinder it, but everything seemed so unrealistic to me. It was hard for me to process it all because her reactions were the complete opposite of what any sane person would do. If your boyfriend dies, you don't hit on the creepy stalker within hours by acknowledging how you really like it when your legs touch. Just, I don't understand your mind, Jodi! You're my age and I truly don't understand your mind.Read more ›
