War burned her. Famine nearly killed her. Now Death is at her heels.
After her two worlds clashed apocalyptically, Luce Boudreau needed some time out. But Destiny had other ideas. When bodies begin washing ashore down the Mississippi River, Luce discovers they are part of a gruesome, lethal message. Her final sister, Death, is trying to break through.
Every sign is clear: the end is coming, but earth will be destroyed - quite literally - over Luce's dead body, even if that means she'll be battling her own nature. And her coterie will stand with her, though Cole keeps standing one step too goddamn far away. Her mysterious new partner, Adam Wu, on the other hand, seems determined to keep her close at all times. And the more Luce learns about the new world she's part of, the deeper the secrets go. Who - if anyone - can she really trust?
As the final pieces of an ancient war come together, Luce's chance to fight back comes sooner than she expected. Death can come at her . . . she's eager to return the favour.
Death Knell by Hailey Edwards
I just discovered Hailey Edwards writing a few weeks and ago and have been reading through all her series like wild fire... Of course, when I saw Death Knell show up as an ARC, I jumped at the chance to get my hands on it. And, Oh My, I'm so happy I did.
This is the continuation of an urban fantasy story focusing on a "demon", Luce, who thinks she is human and her coterie of "demons" that she has learned to love as family...
What would you do if you spent your life protecting others only to find out your destiny lies in the destruction of worlds? Luce decides she is going to forge her own path even if she has to kick some ass to do it.
Just when you think you have an inclination where Edwards is heading, she shakes it all up with a complex, utterly innovated and totally bold twist that gets your heart pounding.
If you are an avid reader like me, it is such a joy to find yourself swept away by an amazing cast of characters, mind blowing originality and a flat out riveting read.
I received this ARC copy of Death Knell from Little, Brown Book Group UK
Piatkus. This is my honest and voluntary review. Death Knell is set for publication Dec 4, 2018.
