ARC Review: Face of Death (Touch of Death #3) by, Kelly Hashway

























Summary:

Having fallen at the hands of Hades, Jodi's enduring torture like she never imagined. Worse, she has to watch her Ophi friends suffer along with her--the punishment doled out by the very people she'd sentenced to life in Tartarus. Hell. This is one reunion Jodi hoped would never happen, but now she must find a way to free them all.

Except the underworld is nearly impossible to escape.

Jodi's one chance may rest in raising the human soul she killed when she drank Medusa's blood.

But splitting her human soul from her Ophi soul means living a double life: One as an Ophi experiencing unspeakable torture and the other as the human she could have been if she never came into her powers. With her two worlds colliding, Jodi will have to make the toughest decision she's faced yet.

Review:

     The whole reason I started this series was because the author, Kelly Hashway, gave me this ARC copy of Face of Death at this years YA Fest (my thoughts on YA Festhttp://www.littleredsreviews.blogspot.com/2014/05/ya-fest-2014.html). Kelly was so sweet and it was my pleasure to meet her. The first book Touch of Death (my review:  http://www.littleredsreviews.blogspot.com/2014/05/touch-of-death-touch-of-death-1-by.html) was not my favorite book of the series. The second book Stalked by Death (my review: http://www.littleredsreviews.blogspot.com/2014/05/staked-by-death-touch-of-death-2-by.html) was better than Touch of Death. The third and final book Face of Death was my favorite from the series, I would rate it 4 out of 5 stars.
     Overall, the entire series was good. I had some problems with the characters, pacing, and physical descriptions. But, the plot was interesting and kept me turning the pages until the very end. I am a fan of Greek mythology, mostly retelling's of Persephone's story, so it was nice to have a change of scenery and read a different type of Greek mythology. I am not so sure that I would recommend this series unless you are patient and willing to give the series some time.
