Author: Weston Kincade

Published: 27 May 2014

Publisher: Books of the Dead Press

Genre: Mystery, Paranormal

Alex Drummond is a troubled high school senior with a checkered past, a broken home, and a surprising ability. When he touches items that murder victims held in their final moments, Alex relives the events in gruesome detail, seeing what they saw, thinking their thoughts, and even feeling what they felt. But who will believe a troubled teen, especially when the murders are so close to home and might reveal skeletons hidden for hundreds of years?

 Join Alex as he struggles to find his destiny, understand love, solve the mysterious murders within his small home town, and speak for victims who can no longer speak for themselves.”

********

A Life Of Death” is a good combination of family drama, paranormal, action, and suspense. The author did a great job in blending emotional depth with real life horrors. It is well-written, and for a story that has the threat of violence pulsing through it, it shows remarkable restraint in the depiction of violence.

The strength of this novel lies not just in its plot but also in its strong and memorable characters. They are flawed, which makes them even more believable.  The characters are well-developed, and their thoughts and actions were extreme and purposeful enough to draw me in.

Overall, I think “A Life Of Death” is a good Book 1. It is a suspenseful read, and I believe it is a promising start to this new series.

 And that’s when everything falls apart.

 Everything is perfect…until it’s not.

In a city of 8 million people Kate manages to run into someone she never expected to see again.

Nick is handsome, impossibly kind, every girl’s dream, and Kate’s former fiancé. He’s also the brother of the rising star author she’s trying to sign. Now that Nick’s back in town and has moved on he insists he’s over Kate, but part of him still can’t get past how amazing they were, and his sister won’t let anyone forget how brutally it ended.

When Mac is dealt a life-changing blow, it forces Kate to question every single choice she’s made.

Follow Kate as she embarks on a journey of life and love, navigating through the decisions that will change it all forever.

About the Author

 Website ~ Twitter ~ Facebook ~ Goodreads

Christina George has worked in publishing for twenty years (give or take). Here’s what this book isn’t. It’s not a slam against publishing (though it is broken) and it’s not a slam against authors (though some of them are crazy). This book is not autobiographical though many of the stories are true. No you won’t know which ones, cause it’s more fun to guess, right? George continues to work in publicity and helps authors because at the end of the day she does love books, she loves publishing, and she loves authors. She hopes you’ll enjoy this romp through Kate’s world as much as she enjoyed creating it.

Some Fun Stuff!
