Eden didn't expect Az.
Not his saunter down the beach toward her. Not his unbelievable pick-up line. Not the instant, undeniable connection. And not his wings.Yeah.So long, happily-ever-after.Now trapped between life and death, cursed to spread chaos with her every touch, Eden could be the key in the eternal struggle between heaven and hell. All because she gave her heart to one of the Fallen, an angel cast out of heaven.She may lose everything she ever had. She may be betrayed by those she loves most. But Eden will not be a pawn in anyone else's game. Her heart is her own.And that's only the beginning of the end.
First Paragraph: Eden dug her hand into the damp sand, black polish chipping off the tip of her fingernails. The sand was cold, the beach pockmarked by late afternoon raindrops. A gust of wind ruffled through her dark hair. Eden sighed.
A Touch Mortal blew me away. I mean, I had heard it was a great debut, and it was backed up with a bad-ass cover, but I honestly didn't know it would be this good. It greatly exceeded my expectations. I mean, at times it was kind of confusing, but it was a great read! Leah Clifford did an amazing job and she has definitely added her name to my overgrowing list of authors to stalk, er, I mean watch out for! Ha, ha!
This book is packed with characters, but they all have their own personalities and their own purpose adding to the story. (I mean, c'mon, Kristen anyone? She was severely insane, but awesome!)
This book was so strange, but not a bad strange. It was the type of strange you are very curious about. I couldn't put this book down, and if I absolutely had to, I was thinking about it and trying to process everything in my head. I finished this book about a month ago, I think?, and I still can't stop thinking about it. I'm sorry I can't give a great review, but it's just something I can't really put into words.
All I can say is this is definitely a book you want to have on your to-read list, and hopefully it's near the top of your list! You'll be very sorry if it's not. I can't wait for the sequel, I hate how it's so far away!!
I recommend this to all dark, angel loving, immortal loving, strange loving, readers out there! If that even possibly makes sense!
Cover: Absolutely bad-ass!
