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. The plot just kept layering deeper and deeper, and I am so intrigued to see where it goes in the last installment. The whole idea of the Siders is so intriguing by itself, but when you add in all the other details of the story line, it is just brilliant.
Your emotions will be in shambles by the end of this book. You also never know who to trust, Leah Clifford plays with your emotions to make you think so and so is behind something, then flips the switch and then you suspect someone else. It is absolute torture. In addition to that, just everything that happens is completely emotionally draining. I was happy, then clueless, then worried about this character or that character, all paired with these absolutely heart-wrenching moments.
My one complaint? That is was not longer, as I know I have to wait out the long months before book 3 is out. The ending was an absolute killer! Everything builds and builds to this crazy peak and Leah Clifford just leaves readers hanging.
This series is one of those must reads. I loved book 1 and book gets bigger and better. Basically I think all of this could be summed up with the statement of I hate Leah Clifford for being a genius. She's a genius this series is just SO good and that makes the wait between books so agonizing. There is no other way to put it, but that A Touch Morbid by Leah Clifford was simply brilliant.
Eden is one my favorite characters of all time. So much that I even featured her in a Top Ten Tuesday post. Clifford did an amazing job at developing her character even more. I absolutely adored seeing Eden grow ever stronger, and believe me, if you thought Eden was tough and fierce in A Touch Mortal, wait 'til you read the sequel! And of course, all the other characters are amazing. Az is just an awesome character, and I really grew to like Kristen in A Touch Morbid! Needless to say, the characters were great.
And the pacing was great as well! Non-stop action was thrown at the reader, and I couldn't believe some things that happened in this novel. Leah Clifford masterfully pulls off plot twists and making very epic things happen in a book. Because a lot of stuff in A Touch Morbid shocked me. And I couldn't get enough of it!
The whole storyline of spreading the Touch is phenomenal and unlike anything I've ever read. The stakes are raised even higher in A Touch Morbid, and the Touch became even more of a problem for our characters. I was constantly rooting for them and cheering them on. A Touch Morbid is definitely on my list for best sequels of all time.
Overall, I absolutely loved, loved, loved A Touch Morbid so much! Leah Clifford did a brilliant job with this sequel. Constantly captivating and engaging, this is easily one of my favorite series.

Luke wants revenge and those who acted against him will have to pay for what they did.
Kristen is coming apart at the seams. With no one she feels she can trust, turning to Luke for help seems like her only option.
Eden is suffering in silence, keeping secrets from Az that could be devastating to them both.
Az and Gabe are battling their own demons. Fighting to keep it together when they could so easily come undone.
And with the Bound beginning to take an interest in the Siders, hiding and trusting no one seems like the best option.
But in order to find the answers they need and to stop Luke from exacting his revenge, they will have to put their trust in the most unlikely source. Madeline.
And if she can't be trusted, the end result could be catastrophic and all could be lost.
A Touch Morbid is a twisty-turny sequel that will leave readers guessing right up to the end about how all the pieces fit together and just who can be trusted. The pace is blazing fast and readers will be immediately ensnared by this deliciously dark, torturous and heartbreaking story.
Each and every one of the characters is still reeling from the events that took place at the end of the first book in the series. And while some of them are still in the dark about just what happened, others are trying to fix what went wrong.
With everyone keeping secrets, it's impossible to know who's trustworthy and whose side they're on. But new alliances must be forged in order to find the answers needed to save those already lost and to prevent anyone else from meeting a similar fate...or worse.
Once again author Leah Clifford has written a tension-filled and incredibly exciting story that is full of surprises and that will leave readers on edge as each new question arises about where things are headed and who will survive this deadly battle between the Bound, the Fallen and the Siders.
This is no warm and fuzzy story. The characters may be charming but could never be called sweet. They are edgy and dangerous and sexy and wicked and each one of them contains a touch of darkness within. And while some seek to do what's right, others simply seek revenge.
While some questions will be answered, readers will be left with many more at the story's end. And just as with the first book in the series, the sense of dread will continue to grow about the likelihood of a happy ending for any of these characters.
A Touch Morbid is a must read for fans of something a bit darker, edgier and sexier and who aren't afraid of an unhappily-ever-after ending. This sequel once again will leave readers on the edge of a cliff, puzzling over just what awaits these characters in the next book in the series.
