A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford

TouchMortalDeath isn’t what Eden expected. Where the hell is her release? Her quiet ending? Not that Eden remembers the details of her final hours, but one thing is for sure–becoming a sider, trapped between life and death, was definitely not part of the plan…

For Eden, nothing seems to be coming easy. There’s no way of telling  what will happen when her fingertips graze human skin. The power that builds inside her, Touch, strips away morals and logic.

Some people only feel a high; others are overcome by their darkest thoughts.

But honestly there’s not much time for her to worry about her effect on mere mortals. She’s got her own drama. Somehow, word’s gotten around that her Touch can kill her own kind. With desperate siders already camping out on her doorstep, the last thing Eden needs is the rumor to spread. Especially since it’s true…

If it is any indication to you of how much I love this book, then I’ll tell you that I only got it today and I’m already blogging about it. It was an Easter gift, one of three books in my basket from the Easter Bunny-who is still entirely real to my brother and sister. I read this entire book while at my grandma’s and began the second before I left. I eventually had to quit reading the second because I was still processing and putting together the pieces of the first book. It sucks you in like this mystical black hole and your mind experiences spaghettification (apparently that’s what black holes do to the things they suck in; just don’t ask where I acquired that info, because I have no clue) because the twists and turns and bends and breaks. The story itself is perfect, the characters were human (you know what I mean; imperfect, flawed, broken), but I was a little baffled by the fact that Eden switched her love interest so many times. Like, it may have been the same two boys but ughhh it was frustrating. Anyway, Leah Clifford was wholey original and brilliant in this world she has developed. I like the concept of being in between Heaven and Hell after you die. I think this is my new favorite Heaven-vs.-Hell-vs.-fate book. Guess that means I’ve got to update The List…

  1. YAY!!! So glad you loved it! It’s one of my favorite series!

    I think Adam was less of a love interest for Eden and more of a way for her to prove to herself that she was over Az. She felt like she SHOULD like this boy and not love Az, so she made herself try 😉
