    Alexander Death Review

    At the end of Tommy Nightmare, Alexander rescues Jenny from Ashleigh and Tommy's riot in Charleston and brings her to safety in Mexico. Safety from the United States government and the friends and family that search for her, this is where he befriends Jenny and shows her not only her past lives, but everything her power is capable of. Alexander is a sexy, dead raising mobster your heart will be pounding over.

    Then there's Ashleigh, still up to her old tricks in Esmeralda's body. She's tangled up with Tommy this time, but you'll see he doesn't play too big of a role. This time Ashleigh is making her way to the top of the government food chain and not letting anything get in her way.

    And of course Seth: frustrated and confused about what exactly happened that night and why he did what he did. We get to see a glimpse similar to the one we had with Jenny and the rattlesnake in the opening of Jenny Pox, only we meet Seth's brother Carter in a heart-wrenching scene. He's desperate to find Jenny and will stop at nothing to save the one he loves. After-all, money can buy you everything if you're a Barrett.

    In this third and final installment of The Paranormals Trilogy, J.L. Bryan keeps us on our toes as we get to know Alexander and discover for ourselves his intentions. We finally get to see that Jenny isn't just a victim anymore as she's growing up and finding who she is. This is the book that just as you think you have it all figured out, Bryan says, "not so fast..." using his excellent storytelling skills to pull the rug out from beneath you. With everything leading up to this epic finale, there's no other rating I can give than a 5.

    Yes, you HAVE to read this book! It's quick, easy and will keep you up all night in anticipation for more. Alexander Death was the perfect end to The Paranormals Trilogy.

    I really loved Alexander in this book.  He was a charmer.  There

    I really loved Alexander in this book.  He was a charmer.  There were certain twists involving him that I saw coming, but it didn’t make him anymore less of a fun character.  That and when Jenny was in his presence, she was FUN.  I was really disappointed in Jenny at the end of the book.  Not because it was out of character, but because I really preferred her other option.  More FUN.

    Drugged Jenny = Fun Jenny.

    Sober Jenny = OMG life sucks Jenny.

    The locations in this book were so vivid that I could just imagine myself there with the characters.  If it weren’t for the discrepancies, I might have loved this book more than the second.  Those minor mistakes pulled me out of the story and turned this fantasy world back into just a book.

    I think that the setup for this part of Jenny’s story was flawed.  The discrepancies from book 2 to 3 is the only reason I rated this book as low as I did.

    The most flawed was the character, Heather.  In the second book she didn’t have much of a personality.  She does things for plot purposes but overall she is very indifferent and focused on her work.  All of a sudden in book 3, Heather tries to act like Mom of the Year because her daughter is in the hospital with cancer and she’s on chemo.  How was this not mentioned in book two?  At all (I double checked!)?  Heather is in Haiti for months (two I think), goes directly to Fallen Oaks to investigate, goes to Charleston to investigate that, and never once visits or talks to her daughter.  She talks to her husband ONCE in book two and shows disinterest when he mentions what their daughter is up to.  Heather shows no regret in being absent from her daughter’s life, so I really don’t get the switch up.

    Also, in this book Seth finds Jenny’s car after 3 months of it being abandoned in a parking garage.  But, how were the cops not able to find the car?  There is a nationwide search for her and her vehicle, but the cops (who were directed by a certain villain to the exact location of Jenny and her vehicle) weren’t able to find it.  It was on the top level of a full parking garage next to the area where all hell breaks loose.  Why wouldn’t the cops search this place?  It doesn’t make sense.

    Oh, and Seth is completely oblivious (aka dumb) to clues about what’s really going on.  I really can’t stand him and I don’t understand why Jenny likes him considering everything that has happened.  (C+)

    (I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.)

    This was such a thrilling conclusion to The Paranormals trilogy

    This was such a thrilling conclusion to The Paranormals trilogy that I couldn't put it down! This story was action packed and satisfying. I was so glad to see how all the ends were tied up, though I was sad to see the series end. I would love to see another book that tells the story of Tommy and Esmeralda or even about other paranormals that we haven't heard about yet. I love this series, and will definitely be ordering a set for my classroom library. I can see some of my reluctant readers really getting interested in this.(

    Pretty good - no spoilers

    I LOVED Jenny Pox and read Tommy Nightmare the day after finishing Jenny Pox. With Tommy Nightmare, we finally met all the characters and their opposites. I couldn't wait for Alexander Death. I loved this book when I started reading it. The story was slowly building towards the inevitable battle. However, after the first major conflict between the characters everything seemed rushed. Once the big battled occured all I could think was "that's it? It's over?" I almost felt cheated. After such an amazing build-up, I was expecting nothing short of an apocalypse when the Paranormals met to settle the score. Admittedly I was a little disappointed in the rushed feel near the end but I enjoyed reading the book nonetheless and recommend it to anyone who has read the other books in the series.

    The PERFECT end to an AMAZING trilogy!

    *minor spoilers from the first two books*
    Alexander Death picks up exactly where we left off in Tommy Nightmare, and once again I am immensely impressed by how smoothly JL Bryan takes us from book to book!

    We begin this book with Seth as a little boy, recalling the events of his older brother Carter's death. *tears* Yeah... I'm crying on page FREAKING six here! I am very emotionally involved with these characters- I don't find myself ever actually CARING this much, EVER. Maybe I should seek professional help?

    Back to the book... Tommy and Ashleigh had set Seth up in an extremely compromising position and had Jenny walk in at the MOST inconvenient time, which resulted in her running out of the hotel in Charleston and straight into a mob of people riled up and filled with fear (by... guess who?) and ready to attack- HER.

    Lucky for Jenny, Alexander was there to rescue her... *swoon* She goes quite willingly with the ever sexy Alexander and his army of walking dead (WIN) and they flee to Mexico. Now let me clarify quickly... This is not a zombie book. Like Jenny's touch spreads the 'Pox', Alexander can raise the dead and control them... But there is no apocalypse or zombie takeover, just wanted to clarify that!

    Jenny and Alexander arrive in Mexico safely, and she's finally getting the answers that have evaded her for so long! He's trying to make her as comfortable as possible, he gives her things, throws her a party... but her thoughts keep drifting to Seth in the beginning.

    "Any of us can remember what we are. But it's a process, Jenny. So you can remember me. So we can be fully together, with both of us knowing who and what we are." ~Alexander

    Meanwhile, back in Fallen Oaks, Seth is pining for Jenny and still not understanding WHY he did what he did. Through fuzzy memories, he starts piecing together that Tommy and Ashleigh were definitely behind what happened. He is suddenly positive that the guy who took Jenny (Alexander) must be in on it too. He has no idea that Jenny is with Alex because she WANTS to be...

    "You're the zombie queen." ~Alexander to Jenny

    *GASP* This is an absolute MUST read!!! Now, I will admit to being a BIT worried at times during the story... I can't tell you why or I'd ruin it! Just know that everything that happens is happening for a reason! Everything is not as it seems in Alexander Death, there are twists and turns and loads of freaking fabulousness!

    Alexander Death is the PERFECT end to an AMAZING trilogy! JL Bryan continues to baffle me with his greatness. Seriously! I am going to miss these characters so badly!!! I'm wicked sad that it's over... But as the cover says, "All things must end."
