Cover Lust : Touch of Death by Kelly Hashway
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.
OMFG...look at that cover. Isn't it gorgeous. When I first saw the cover I couldn't believe my own two eyes. What a gorgeous book to keep in your bookshelf. And the plot, I hope that you have already got this books is another mythology, and I'm a sucker of mythology.
When I personally asked the author Kelly Hashway about a little detail she said
"Touch of Death is based on a lesser known myth involving, Medusa, Athena, and Ophiuchus. The main character, Jodi Marshall, discovers she's part of a group of necromancers called the Ophi. She can't be around humans because her Gorgon blood is deadly to them, so she must leave her old life behind and figure out how to use her powers. But she's not just any necromancer. She's a direct descendant of Medusa, and she has to save her kind from Hades, who wants to claim all their souls."
Ohh I'm imaging after reading this you guys are dying to get your hands on this book, but wait I have a bad news. Touch of Death will be release in January 15th 2013. Have patience my friends, you will get the best.
