Death Whispers Review

So after a long break from reading/blogging/fun in general (worst decision ever), I finally finished Death Whispers by Tamara Rose Blodgett. And yes my friends, it was amazing. I don't usually go for books with male protags, but I lurved this one. It was definitely a fun read ... a little creepy (The kids have a thing for cemeteries), but fun. I don't want to give too much away, but it's basically about a group of kids who manifest powers after a government sanctioned vaccine. Their lives are pretty much determined for them depending on the talent they develop--Affinity for the dead, Empathy, Psychic Null, Pyrokenesis, etc. And as their talents become known, so does their potential for exploitation. Seriously, if our government could raise an army of zombies, what do you think they'd do with it?

But anyway, this was a meaty read at 9212 kindle locations. Mrs. Blodgett provided enough information to leave me satisfied, but held back just enough to leave me thirsting for more. And yep, I've already bought book #2, which should tell you just how much I enjoyed book #1.

So it goes without saying that I highly recommend Death Whispers. I just checked and it's still free on Amazon, so make sure to grab a copy while it lasts.

Also, the lovely Mrs. Blodgett is holding a contest right now for the name of Alex's love interest (nerdy kid in Death Series) as well as the title of the next book in the Savage Series. Winner gets a signed copy of Death Speaks and/or a copy of the third book in the Savage Series. How awesome is that? Check that out here---->

Missed you guys a ton. Update on the Shimmer Trilogy (Formerly The Faerie Tale Girl Series) coming soon.

  1. My name is David Meredith and I very recently came across your book blog. I have just released a novel - The Reflections of Queen Snow White - on in the Kindle Store this past October and would be happy to send you a complimentary copy if you would be interested in reviewing it. I have included the dust cover synopsis below. If you are interested, just reply to this e-mail and I will happily send you your free copy right away. Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response!

    What happens when "happily ever after" has come and gone?

    On the eve of her only daughter, Princess Raven's wedding, an aging Snow White finds it impossible to share in the joyous spirit of the occasion. The ceremony itself promises to be the most glamorous social event of the decade. Snow White’s castle has been meticulously scrubbed, polished and opulently decorated for the celebration. It is already nearly bursting with jubilant guests and merry well-wishers. Prince Edel, Raven's fiancĂ©, is a fine man from a neighboring kingdom and Snow White's own domain is prosperous and at peace. Things could not be better, in fact, except for one thing:

    The king is dead.

    The queen has been in a moribund state of hopeless depression for over a year with no end in sight. It is only when, in a fit of bitter despair, she seeks solitude in the vastness of her own sprawling castle and climbs a long disused and forgotten tower stair that she comes face to face with herself in the very same magic mirror used by her stepmother of old.

    It promises her respite in its shimmering depths, but can Snow White trust a device that was so precious to a woman who sought to cause her such irreparable harm? Can she confront the demons of her own difficult past to discover a better future for herself and her family? And finally, can she release her soul-crushing grief and suffocating loneliness to once again discover what "happily ever after" really means?

    Only time will tell as she wrestles with her past and is forced to confront The Reflections of Queen Snow White.
