What I Loved:
I loved the dystopian world that Rebecca Crunden created. Her idea of the world came alive in A Touch of Death through her descriptions. I felt completely immersed in the the setting of this!
How I Felt:
A Touch of Death was a good book and I did enjoy it. The story was interesting and I wanted to keep reading. There were just a few things that pulled me out of the book. I didn’t appreciate the continued bickering between Nate and Kitty. I just felt it was too much and should have been pulled back. I also felt that there were some areas of the book that could have been edited down as they started to feel too long-winded. There were a lot of lists to get through and I could have done with just a few less of those.
The characters were interesting. I enjoyed the growth and change that Kitty goes through. She felt a bit spoiled and unaware of the world around her. I liked how she began to see things in the real light of day as the book progressed.
Overall, this was an enjoyable read with a good story. There is clearly a set up to a second book, and I believe it will be a good series!
To Read or Not To Read:
If you enjoy dystopian novels with that sci-fi element built in, A Touch of Death this is a good read for you!
