Top 25 Books Of 2013: #12 Touch of Death (Touch of Death #1) By Kelly Hashway

Book #12
Touch of Death 
(Touch of Death #1) 
By Kelly Hashway 

Jodi Marshall isn’t sure how she went from normal teenager to walking disaster. One minute she’s in her junior year of high school, spending time with her amazing boyfriend and her best friend. The next she’s being stalked by some guy no one seems to know.


After the stranger, Alex, reveals himself, Jodi learns he’s not a normal teenager and neither is she. With a kiss that kills and a touch that brings the dead back to life, Jodi discovers she’s part of a branch of necromancers born under the 13th sign of the zodiac, Ophiuchus. A branch of necromancers that are descendents of Medusa. A branch of necromancers with poisoned blood writhing in their veins.



Jodi’s deadly to the living and even more deadly to the deceased. She has to leave her old, normal life behind before she hurts the people she loves. As if that isn’t difficult enough, Jodi discovers she’s the chosen one who has to save the rest of her kind from perishing at the hands of Hades. If she can’t figure out how to control her power, history will repeat itself, and her race will become extinct.

My Thoughts:

I was never a big fan of zombies. This book made me change my mind. Sure, the love interest isn't a zombie, BUT it FEATURES zombie-ish people so it's basically the same thing to me. Most would disagree, but let's leave it at that. OK?

This was yet another ORIGINAL piece that I found whilst browsing my Goodreads recommendations. 

I just love that list!!  

Back to the book: It was well written and had a mythology background (another win in my opinion). It wasn't an obvious tale like Hades & Persephone (I can make a list of all the re-tellings that one got....Trust me it's HUGE). It was finally one featuring Medusa. YAY! This book features Medusa, Zombies and a love story. What else do I need in a book? Go one-click and start reading this right away! GO, GO, GO!
