Suicide is for Mortals (After Rezarta Book 1) Kindle Edition
President Miranda Hutchinson orchestrated the dissolution of the magical colony of Rezarta following its attempted secession, and three years after her death, no one has any idea that a ghost remains.
Journalist Scanlon Ness exposed the relationship between vampires and organized crime, but he can’t protect himself from joining the ranks of the thirsty dead.
The most perceptive eyes and ears of her generation belong to artist Meliana Lucas, but it is to her surprise when she sees the spirit of a woman who died but did not depart.
Humanity’s answer to the incompletely dead has long been to shun vampires and ignore ghosts. Miranda needs to be heard, and Meliana won’t let the barrier between living and haunting stand in her way. There are some who don’t want Miranda to regain her voice, and for someone like Meliana, the friendship of a ghost is no protection. The paths of artist, ghost and newborn vampire will come crashing together, and they are not prepared for how the dust will clear.

It takes place in a world filled with supernatural creatures, faeries, vampires, ghosts and the like. I am always up for that stuff, so enjoyed that aspect. Especially because it was played as being just part of life, the norm, and matter of fact. There was no character just finding out they exist. I really found really refreshing. It is also told in 3 seemingly unrelated stories, told seperately through the chapters, until they start intersecting and combining. I have read other stories done this way and always enjoyed it. I was happy to find it successfully employed here. It wasn't the best I have read, but it was still enjoyable throughout.
It has a large cast of characters, which were mostly all fun and unique. Because of that though, I felt like a few of them didn't quite get enough development. It wasn't enough to really shake my enjoyment. I am hoping in future installments we will get more. There were a few bits that were a little dry and repetative, but again it didn't hinder my enjoyment very much.
All in all it was interesting and full of potential. I am curious enough to want to read the next in the series to see if it reach that potential. I would recommend it to fans of supernatural fantasy.
There are several POVs and although that makes it more interesting, it also means that the story is allover the place in the first half of the book. I had no idea what was going on or where we were headed. Plus I had a hard time keeping the various voices apart, as they all sounded the same, with the exception of one later character, whom I could keep singled out do to his abusive language.
I would have liked the storyline of the vampires to have more substance to it and a deeper look into the Blood Rescuers. In the usual UF all vampires seem to be amazing, dark, mysterious hunks with gigantic sex drives, so it was a nice change to read a different take on this. It could have been explored a bit more for me.
The interaction between the ghost and the two women on the other hand was too detailed early on. I was really bored with all the backstories.
I think if both storylines had been more balanced, the story would have felt more coherent.
The main characters only really came alive for me in the last third of the book, when the various plotlines started to converge. The story also started to build up some tension at that point and became more lively. I am glad I finished the book, as it got quite emotional towards the end and tied up some of the meandering storylines. The epilogue didn't do it for me at all though. It ended on something that supposedly was a cliffhanger and helped set-up the scene for a sequel, but just sort of petered out.
Would I buy a sequel? Probably not. It did not grip me enough for that.
Would I recommend this book to someone? Maybe, but only with a hefty warning that it had an extremely slow start and that the writing is not what you would expect from your usual Urban Fantasy.
