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 descendents 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. (from Goodreads)
Minor confession time: zombies freak the H out of me. I don't know why, because, honestly, I've seen more dead bodies than I care to admit. But dead bodies walking around? Definitely scares the bejeezus out of me. Anyhow, that being said, if you dig the zombie genre (as in, love the Walking Dead and such) more power to ya, and grab this book!! Despite my silly fears, this was a really fun read. The world of the Ophi was intriguing and I loved the details Hashway worked in. Plus, I'm always a fan of anything with Greek gods, especially Medusa. So, no doubt I had fun reading this. Add in the awesome Alex, and I can't wait for the sequel!
How about you--zombies a "yeah!" or "scare me to death"?
