Desires of the dead is one of my many favorite series. It’s a little bit eerie but I love it.
Violet has had a special power, ever since she was little she would feel an echo that would lead her to find a dead animal, as she has grown up, the echo has showed her more than just dead animals. The echo has pointed her to dead body’s who aren’t at peace. In the beginning of Desires of the dead she felt a pull to a body that was trapped inside a shipping container.
She makes an anonymous call to the police telling them her that she heard something inside the huge container and she left the scene, knowing that the police would find it. A couple days later she gets a mysterious call from a lady named Sarah Priest, who wanted to talk to Violet. Sarah was curious as to how Violet found the body but Violet wouldn’t tell her a thing.
Throughout this whole book, I thought there was going to be some huge twist in the plot, I kept waiting and waiting and none came. I was a little disappointed at the lack of mystery. It was pretty easy for me to figure out what was going on. I wasn’t totally sure but at parts it was pretty predictable.
I absolutely love Jay, he’s sweet and totally in love with Violet, no matter how many girls try to flirt with him. He is totally dedicated to Violet and nothing came between them. Although I was hoping for Jay to stray a little towards some girl, or Violet to somehow have something with Rafe, nothing happened. Although I am very curious as to what is up with Rafe. *sigh* I guess I’ll just have to wait for the next book.
I wish I could have given this book more stars, it was that good. Now I have to wait a whole year to find out what happens next. No more Rafe for a year. I hope something happens between them in the next book. Anyways, I strongly suggest reading this series. You won’t regret it!
