Book of Souls by Nadine Nightingale
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book was a mix of reincarnation, mythology, and teenage romance. I was immediately sucked in, but be warned – there is a cliffhanger ending!
Nisha is an outcast, and is more often known as the “angel of death.” People around her end up dropping dead with startling frequency, so I guess it’s an appropriate nickname. Even though she tries to keep to herself so as not to endanger anyone else, she somehow manages to accumulate a fiercely protective group of friends. They range from popular girl to stoner weirdo, but they are pretty amazing friends. Then comes the new kid – Blaze.
Nisha and Blaze end up meeting in the police station, where she’s being questioned about her appearance at another tragic death. They are immediately drawn to one another, but Nisha is determined to protect him from her curse. Blaze, however, will not take no for an answer. On top of this teenage drama, there’s also the fact that Nisha is seeing Anubis everywhere death follows her. Her night terrors get progressively worse, and there appears to be an increase in her general weirdness.
All of this culminates in a gruesome cliffhanger I was sad to see happen. I was so absorbed in the book that I didn’t realize there would not be enough time left to resolve all the action. Nisha and her friends find themselves in desperate peril and I’m absolutely dying to know how they find their way out (and if everyone makes it out alive!).
