Allow me to start off with the cover. Just look at it!! This is one of the most beautiful covers (albeit slightly creepy) that I have ever seen. I must have stared at this a thousand times.

Alex Ash finally succumbs to death after suffering her entire life from a debilitating illness. Her final moments were filled with anguish from losing Chase Lasalle - a childhood friend whom she deeply admires. Once she enters the spirit world, she is given a choice of where she'd like to go. Door #1 means that she will forget every painful memory (and she has many) and get to start anew. She would live in comfort without regrets, pain, or sadness. However, she would also forget every good memory she had with Chase.

Door #2 would allow her to keep her memories, but it would also grant her the possibility of seeing Chase and the Lasalle brothers once again. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that she will find peace and comfort there. The thought of not remembering sweet, chivalrous, strong Chase is unfathomable. After all, he was the reason why she was able to keep going despite living in a bad household and being teased over her condition. Needless to say, she chooses Door #2.

Alex winds up in Eidolon, but don't mistake it with being Heaven because it's not even close! Alex reunites with her beloved friends, but ends up finding a world filled with secrets, betrayal, and terror. Alex soon finds that this seemingly peaceful ghost town isn't at all what it appears to be.

I absolutely LOVED this book! I don't think I can stress that enough. I swooned over Chase throughout its entirety. Alex is a beautiful soul who is still trying to grow accustomed to a completely different way of life while avoiding the dark creatures that lurk nearby.

Today's Psychocat Reads Review is OF BREAKABLE THINGS by A. Lynden Rolland

If I weren't writing the #PsychocatReads reviews for the blog, this is a book I might have passed over. It's not that the book doesn't sound interesting when you read the description, simply that it isn't necessarily something I frequently read. Having read the book in under four days, I can only be thankful that I do the reviews. Wow! I would have missed out on a good one.

Characters: This book is full of interesting characters. For all her physical fraility in her human life, it's quickly evident that Alex lacks nothing when it comes to spunk. The LaSalle brothers each bring something unique to the story. They may be brothers, but they each have a unique spot to fill in the book. Sprinkle in the collection of faculty, students, and others that Alex encounters in this new and unexpected world, and you've got the makings for a book you can't put down.

Relationships: The relationship between Alex and Chase is woven throughout the book; however, there is so much more to this story. Whether it is the often antagonistic relationships between the various families at the school, or the cryptic relationships with the faculty members, the character dynamics will keep you turning the pages.

World Building: OF BREAKABLE THINGS creates an enthralling new world for what happens when the bodied (what we consider the living) die. As a reader, you learn about the world along with Alex, but half the fun of the book is the intrigue of not being able to explain the things that are happening. The world in this book sucked me in and refused to let me back out.

Jen's Final Rating: 5 STARS!! Go grab a copy of the book, but be prepared to get very little other than reading done until it's finished.

Psychocat's Final Rating: 5 CLAWS! Oh the trouble that cat could get into inside the world of this book.

INITIAL THOUGHTS
I am intrigued with this one to see how the Ehlers Danlos Syndrome is portrayed as it is a syndrome that myself, my mother and my daughter all have. Also apart from that I am interested to see how this author depicts the afterlife too. The cover is very striking so I guess the book will really strand out on the bookshelf.

MY REVIEW
I received a free copy of this one in exchange for my honest review. I find the cover really striking and it certainly makes you want to know more. I love the characters, the Lasalle brothers and of course Alex. All the "action" takes place after they are dead. We begin in a room with two exits and Alex is given the choice of which door to go through determining what her afterlife will be. She chooses the door that lead to Eidolon.(apologies if I've spely it wrong). A version of the afterlife that contains a kind of academy.
Alex has always been ill and treat somewhat like a "china doll" or as it says in the title a "breakable thing". This is one of the reasons I wanted to read the book as the book says Alex has Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. I wanted to know how it would be explained or dealt with. Well it was stated alex had it and then a brief, explanation crossed with a preaching description and then that's more or less where it ended. The only other reference about it was when Alex's "life" was talked about and then it was referred to as her "illness".
Once in the afterlife and chase and Alex are reunited we learn that Chase loves Alex, yet in mortal life didn't dare speak up as her didn't want to lose her friendship. One of the other Lasalle brothers, Jonas also loves Alex but see's that she is in love with chase so feel resentful towards his own brother.
