Jodi must leave her mother to be with the rest of the order so that she can stop accidentally harming the people around her. Also, she’s going to get her education in being an Ophi. In the mansion that houses the Ophi, Jodi discovers she’s the chosen one who can save her kind from Hades. This doesn’t go well with others. Rivalry and jealousy come into play. Jodi doesn’t just have to worry about Hades, but she has to watch her back around the Ophi as well.
This is a great paranormal book flavored with mythology. It’s action-packed with an even pace; there was never a dull moment. There’s also romance, but it’s not central to the story. I look forward to book 2 to see what happens next with Jodi and her powers.
The one thing that got me in that scene is that Jodi wiped the blood off her hand from her nosebleed onto the deer’s fur. I don’t see anyone doing that. I would’ve wiped it on the inside of my shirt, or had shown a drop fall from her nose and land on the deer instead. The fact that she wiped her blood on a dead deer was weird.
Anyway, I enjoyed the mythology in the beginning of Touch of Death. Mythology is one of my passions, which is why I enjoy Kelly Hashway’s books so much, because she rewrites them and uses them in fascinating ways. I actually had no idea that there was a 13th zodiac sign though, so that was a treat to learn.
The end of chapter one is where things start to get good. And, without revealing anymore of the plot, I’ll just say I was just as nervous as Jodi was. And things really get exciting when Green Eyes (Alex from Kiss of Death) gets into the picture.
Another thing I noticed is that Jodi sure pricks/cuts herself a lot. I understand that’s the point of the story but it’s a bit predictable. Despite that though, everything that happens after she pricks herself is entertaining.
I enjoyed the insight Kelly Hashway gave us for a teen who was homeschooled and whose mother was a teen mom. These are two very realistic circumstances in this generation and it was nice reading about a YA character who dealt with both while growing up.
The end had my jaw dropping. There were so many twists and turns and each one was exciting. I felt like applauding at the conclusion of this book. Over all, this was a fun read.
The main character is Jodi. A few pages into the book, you learn her birthday and I about had a field day. Why? Because Jodi, the author, and I ALL have the same birthday! Don't believe me, look here:
@Tween2TeenBooks That's my birthday too! :)

Besides being endlessly cool, because the main character has that birthday, she has special powers. Does that mean I have special powers too? (Sadly, I do not. I tried them on my friends and they did not work.) But seriously, Jodi is a cool protagonist. A little too whiney at parts, but overall, a likable heroin. She tends to jump to conclusions, but everyone has their faults. Jodi is also extremely powerful. She's a direct descendant of Medusa and has some crazy awesome powers that go along with that.
The plot is fast moving. I easily read this in 24 hours. So, clear your schedule for the afternoon and get reading! There's action, romance *swoon*, and SO much more! The male protagonist Alex would make any reader swoon. At points, the book can be cheesy, but it's still good. The second book is out and the third (and final) book comes out in a couple weeks! Definitely a fun read that you won't regret!
