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 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. (Via

     The whole reason I have started this series is because the author, Kelly Hashway, gave me a copy of the third book, Face of Death, at YA Fest this year (my thoughts on YA Fest 2014: Otherwise,

  • I may have never started this series
  • I may have started this series 
  • I may have read the first book, but not have continued reading this series. 
After reading Touch of Death, I purchased the second book, Stalked by Death, and I have the third book, Face of Death, so I might as well continue reading the series (I have no idea how many books are going to be in this series). I really did not like Touch of Death. The series does have potential because it has an interesting plot (which is the reason why I will be continuing the series). I was not a huge fan of any character in this series and it was extremely predictable. So, if I do not like Stalked by Death, I will not be continuing the series. I would rate Touch of Death 3 out of 5 stars.
