Touch of Death by Kelly Hashway
Releases on: January 15th 2013
Add on: Goodreads.
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 descendants 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.
I featured this book a couple of weeks ago during it's cover reveal and I'm featuring it now because I think it sounds like the bees knees. I adore Kelley Armstrong's The Darkest Powers series that features necromancy and I'm ecstatic for the chance to dive into a brand new book/series featuring this element. Although, I think waiting until 2013 will kill me!!
