Desires of the Dead Review

Happy Release Day Kimberly Derting and Happy Book Birthday Desires of the Dead!

I'm about to tell you why you should go run out to the stores right now and get a copy, but just in case you missed it yesterday--we have an interview with Kimberly AND a chance to win an arc of Desires of the Dead!

Description from Amazon: The missing dead call to Violet. They want to be found.

Violet can sense the echoes of those who've been murdered—and the matching imprint that clings to their killers. Only those closest to her know what she is capable of, but when she discovers the body of a young boy she also draws the attention of the FBI, threatening her entire way of life.

As Violet works to keep her morbid ability a secret, she unwittingly becomes the object of a dangerous obsession. Normally she'd turn to her best friend, Jay, except now that they are officially a couple, the rules of their relationship seem to have changed. And with Jay spending more and more time with his new friend Mike, Violet is left with too much time on her hands as she wonders where things went wrong. But when she fills the void by digging into Mike's tragic family history, she stumbles upon a dark truth that could put everyone in danger.

It's so hard to review this book because not only did I love it, but I don't want to spoil the mystery. All I will say is Violent is still struggling with her powers, what they mean and how to use them (and its awesome), Jay is still cute, hot, adorable, smexy, smart, amazing, fabulous, caring, protective...ok I REALLY like Jay. Luckily, he's still awesome. Also the romance between them is sizzling this time. It was so fun to see them fully move on from friends who are totally in love with each other but can't admit it, to a couple learning how deeply in love they are.

The mystery is different from The Body Finder, but it's every bit as intriguing. And the suspense is through the roof--Kim really knows how to keep you hanging on the edge of your seat. Just be warned. Only start this book when you have a good chunk of time, because the first few pages will leave you reeling! 

Honestly, romance, suspense, JAY!!! Go get this book. And celebrate the fact there are now 2 more books in the series! YAY!!! *runs off to buy copy*


  1. Can't wait to read this one!!! I enjoyed the first book, and her covers are just so pretty, and Jay was just so nice. I'm glad this one is good, too! :)

  2. Wow! You make this sound amazing and really exciting! I have an ARC; just haven't read it yet!

  3. I loved The Body Finder. I can't wait to read this too.

  4. I cannot wait to read this book and you made me want to read it even more. Thanks for the review.
