Paxton Hart has used his ability to escape the grasp of the Sanction Police, who want him for the illegal import of the undead.

From a parallel plane.

Unfortunately, Pax has blinked the entire group to an earth more corrupt than his own, where the undead serve the living in illicit sex trade, and cyborg-human hybrids are slowly taking over humanity.

When Deegan and her zombie, Mitchell, become separated from Paxton during a recent blink, they find themselves in a world where soldiers have a form of blinking they call Reflecting.

Reflective Lance Ryan pronounces himself judge and jury as he discovers that Deegan has more than Affinity for the Dead, but the dangerous Atomic ability.

Deegan just wants to find her family and return to their earth before the Reflectives can punish her for an ability she can't help having--and doesn't want.

As the group finds one another, a new reality of fertility and danger rears its head. Do the women stay where they can conceive children who are so rare and risk their lives? Or do they return to an earth where certain persecution awaits them, and a lifetime of barrenness?

Should Deegan put Mitchell to rest? Or will he become more than anyone thought possible? Including her.

Death Blinks by Tamara Rose Blodgett (Death Series, #8)

Death Blinks (#8): A Dark Dystopian Paranormal RomanceLike a woman trapped in the dessert without my Kindle, (wait, I mean water, I would never be without my Kindle!) I chugged down another LONG awaited addition to one of my all-time favorite series from Tamara Rose Blodgett. Death Blinks Continues the Death Series with another generation of genetically altered kids as they go on the run, Death style into a parallel dimension that makes Earth look like Disney. Paxton Hart is on the run for illegally importing the Undead, seriously? His sister Deegan has raised her own zombie and the guy is hot, maybe not Clyde hot, (read the series)but he is most definitely a protector to his mistress. Anyway, Deegan and Mitchel get separated from Pax and the family, including Grandpa and the now grown up “Death Kids.” Naturally, there are doubles from Earth, but their powers are different, although their evil intent may just be the same. Destruction...control...power.

Once re-united with the family, one would think all they have to do is blink and go home, right? Not on your life, now everyone is on the run from the group known as the Reflectives, and well, things are just getting more muddled as Caleb has lost his ability over the undead and Clyde begins to rot…gah! Can it get any worse? Oh yes, as this dimension has a few other quirks up its sleeve and every female in their group is now at the dreaded “that time of the month,” meaning they are now fertile. Should they stay and conceive or continue to try to be blinked home. (OR, is this a good time to go on the attack?) Next question, can Pax really get them home or is something off with his power?

Say hello to old friends, get to know new ones better as Tamara Rose Blodgett lights up the pages with her signature style, attitude, and dialogue, Love. The. Dialogue. I was caught in a time warp, filled with fond memories of the Original Death Kids, as Jade, Caleb, Jonesy, Grandpa and more prove that sometimes everyone gets better with age and the more things change, the more they stay the same! This holds true for Ms. Blodgett’s writing, too, because how often can an author keep that same juice flowing, the same well-timed humor and snark going as if no time has gone by since book one.

I received an ARC edition from Tamara Rose Blodgett in exchange for my honest review.
