Til Death by Kate Evangelista
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: Paranormal YA
Book Description: Sixteen-year old Selena Fallon is a dreamer. Not a day-dreamer, but an I-see-the-future kind of dreamer. Normally this is not a problem as she has gotten pretty good at keeping her weird card hidden from everyone in her small town. Except from her best friend Kyle and her grandparents, of course. But when Selena dreams of her own rather bloody death, things get a little too freaky even for her.
Enter Dillan Sloan. Selena has seen the new guy in a different dream, and he is even more droolworthy in person. Beyond the piercing blue eyes and tousled dark hair, there is something else that draws her to him. Something…electric. Unfortunately, Dillan makes it more than clear that he does not feel the same. They just met, so why would he act like he hates her?
When Dillan and Selena are forced together one weekend to work on a school project, Selena prepares to be ignored as usual. But when she stumbles across a few undead in the backyard, Dillan comes to her rescue and reveals a whole lot more. Not only is he part of a society that hunts otherworldly creatures…she is too. And she is being targeted by a force bigger and darker than anything she ever imagined. Despite her death dream, Selena is not going to give up easy, especially when she discovers that Dillan might not actually hate her after all.
My thoughts: Selena believes she has a typical life. She has a couple of best friends who have her back and are always there for her. She goes to school and has loving Grandparents who are raising her. She has a possessive ex-boyfriend. She can foresee the future, but that is just a weird fluke.
Her world is turned upside down when Dillan moves into town. He pulls her to him. His touch is electric and he is very good looking. Pretty soon she is part of a strange world that she knew nothing of before, but she has always been a part of.
Til Death is an adventure. The book flows along at a quick pace and is great at keeping the readers attention. The plot line is typical, but it is still fun to read. The paranormal aspect is new. I have not come across this particular breed before. Kate introduced them well, she gave information at the right time to understand the plot and story.
The book has quite a bit of swearing. It made me flinch.
