I just finished reading A Touch Morbid by Leah Clifford for an Around the World ARC Tour.
Eden won the battle-she saved her true love from the darkest evil. But the war has only just begun. With secrets swirling around her, powerful allies unraveling, and life-and death-as she knows it eroding, Eden and those she loves tread dangerous ground. Can she trust anyone? Will her unearthly powers be her salvation or her downfall? A sweeping, dark, and sexy paranormal romance that will haunt readers with an inventive mythology and a cinematic New York City filled with shadows and longing.
I want to like this series. I really, really do! Unfortunately, I had the same reaction to this book as I did the first one. It was waay too confusing. Once again, the names of the different groups of people was never explained. I was just supposed to know, or remember, who everyone was. And I was supposed to remember what happened in the last book. There was no refresher at all. And since I read it over a year ago, and more than 100 books, ago, I had no clue. So I was really lost this time.
I had a hard time staying interested in this book. I caught myself nodding off a lot, which almost never happens. And not because the story was boring. But because I just didn't get it.
And that's all I really have to say about the book. I can't give it a low rating because for me to do that, I would have to dislike the book. Which I didn't. I was just confused the whole time. Sigh.
I gave this book a rating of 3/5.
A Touch Morbid will be released on February 28, 2012.
