The year is 2049 and in the new dystopian order, the Randoms have risen
to the top. Because of the Helix Complex and their illicit use of mass
sterilization, Earth faces dire consequences. The virulent Zondorae
concoction of 2030 made many who could have children into mules. Now
middle-aged, Death's children do their best in a world where technology
and paranormal powers collide in a mix of tragedy and circumstance.
Those in power have raised zombies for the slave trade.
Paxton and Deegan Hart are grown and on the radar for those that
understand how critical they are for future exploit. The tight-knit
circle of friends are forced to network for solutions to the depravity
that has taken hold.
Can the original group protect a new talent, so dangerous it
shouldn't exist? Will the new generation of Randoms find a solution for
propagation, or will their power base cannibalize those who choose
harmony over greed?
For the Love of Death by Tamara Rose Blodgett
You know those reunion shows where the producers bring back the cast a mazillion years after their show ended? They are all grown up, have families, etc. It’s like that with Tamara Rose Blodgett’s For the Love of Death. The Death kids are back, all grown up with families of their own. Gramps is still a rebellious old codger with a heart of gold, doing all he can to raise havoc in his own way and, my very first book boyfriend, Clyde is till the “to-the-rescue” charmer he always was, and yes, he is still a zombie. Call me silly, but I just adore the guy!
Things have changed in Caleb’s world, and not for the better, his two kids have powers that they need to hide…and get a grip on. Of course if not for their slight “oops” we wouldn’t get plopped down in the Death Kids version of Superman’s Bizzarro World. Hey, you are never too old for good reading, google it, younglings! The faces are the same, but the world is skewed and evil and deadly. Some powers don’t even work there, but one thing they have is worth the risk as old and new Death characters take the trip they will not forget soon.
Sometimes an author leaves a series and its world behind for a while and tries to put a little lipstick on a comeback novel, trust me, Tamara Rose Blodgett picked up right where she left off with her signature edge, snark, creative language and dialogue! She. Did. Not. Miss. One. Beat. In a world full of the supernatural, the genetically altered and the dystopian science fiction, at the top of the heap, on her own little pedestal, sits Tamara Rose Blodgett. So, inquiring minds want to know? Are you going to leave us here doing our standing ovation or will we get at least one more curtain call? Worth the wait, I pre-ordered this in February!
