Blodgett is an amazing writer. I have had the pleasure of reading three of her novels, and I've enjoyed every single one of them, but I really think Death Speaks takes the cake. Not only is the cover absolutely amazing, but the story line itself is so original and intriguing that it glues the reader to the pages from the very first line. I fell in love with the characters in Death Whispers, and Blodgett intensifies that love in this sequel, adding some spicy relationships, a chilling murder investigation, and laugh out loud situations and dialogue. Death Speaks continues the story of Caleb, a male protagonist, and the story flows through his eyes. I really enjoy this point of view and focus on male characters, which I haven't really seen in much of the current YA literature, especially coming from a female author. Blodgett knows how the young male mind works; her characters' actions and dialogue are just like what I observe in the classroom on a daily basis, making this paranormal novel all the more real. That being said, curse words are used fairly regularly throughout the novel, usually just out of earshot of an adult (just like in real life), but not always, and what I truly love is that the adults are always on point when it comes to language and corrections of the young teens struggling to come into themselves. This novel is very reader friendly and I believe both the young and old will enjoy this story. Five stars.

This is a wonderful futuristic fantasy with a great bunch of kids, being kids, surprising everyone with their maturity one minute and acting like 'kids' the next! Truth time here, I was so hooked on this book that I listened to it on the drive to and from grocery shopping, even took my Kindle in the store with me, earbuds in. (Is this so different from using a cellphone while shopping?) I admit to laughing and smiling a LOT while learning more new teen phrases than I thought possible! (There is some 'language,' you know-the kind most kids use when they think no one can hear them?) There are also adults with 'super hearing' who correct them. The characters were so real, so natural in their interaction and the idea of kids with special 'gifts' added to the normal teen years 'issues' was brilliant! Add in a great plot, a few social issues, a dark conspiracy, a zombie named Clyde and a dog named Onyx and this makes a fantastic read for young adults, as well as not-so-young adults! Can't wait for book three!

This is a series review of the DEATH SERIES, by Tamara Blodgett. I struggled with a way to review each of these books without spoiling them and without becoming redundant. Tough job. So what I decided to do is, spotlight each book, then review the series as a whole. So what did I think of the DEATH series? I really liked it. The concept was original and smart. Basically, scientist mapped out the human genome and then developed the capability to expand paranormal abilities. Every school-aged child is given a drug cocktail that enhance said abilities. When the children reach puberty, their bodies aren't the only things to develop. Each teen's ability manifests in a different way. Some may become Empaths. Others may become Telepaths, or Telekenesis, or the biggie Affinity for the Dead(AftD). Caleb Hart, series hero, has AftD, and he's the son of the scientist partially responsible for the discovery. Lucky boy. Good thing Caleb has the "J's", his best friends John and Jonesy, and his new girlfriend, Jade. Add in supportive, if quirky, parents and Caleb has support on all fronts. Beyond the original concept, I love how Blodgett expanded on the story. Caleb and his friends would struggle to survive and solve one complicated scenario, then another would crop up. The first book begins with Caleb, John and Jonesy trying to get the school bullies off their backs. Then they must avoid Caleb, because of his unique abilities, being exploited by the government. Even when Caleb gets out of hot water, the Greysheets are always watching him. And when he's not dealing with the Greysheets, Jade's abusive father is on his case. Oh, and the Affinity for the Dead ability? Not only is Caleb saddled with that, he is also a Cadaver-Manipulator. A necromancer. The dead that Caleb raise obey him, faithfully. He can use them to scare his bullies, or to ward off the bad guys. And sometimes, he loses control of his minions. Not good. So...I do have to say that while I did like Caleb and the snark, it did begin to wear on me after a while. I just felt the internal and external quippiness was a bit much. But, to be fair, teenage boys are a bit much at times, so there's that. ;-) Also, Caleb likes the word "retarded". A lot. Like, he says it so much, it's like he's trying to make a point that he'll say it just because he can. I know words only have the power we give them, but I've never liked that one. So that did bug me. But, I will say that as the series progresses and Caleb matures, he does ease up on the annoying language. Also, the villains sometimes felt a bit cartoonish to me. The DEATH SERIES was, overall, a really fun, unique ride. The scientific aspect was clever. The characters were funny and memorable. The action never stops. I think this series would certainly be a hit with teens, specifically teen boys.

Death Speaks is the second book in the Death Series by Tamara Rose Blodgett. The story continues to follow Caleb and his group of friends with their special powers. The group of friends (minus Jonesy) have moved on to the Paranormal Highschool and are getting some instruction on their various abilities. In Caleb's case however it is not really helping since he is only the second person to ever have level 5 AFTD (affinity for the dead). Carson and Brett are back to their old game of being being jerks with Jade and Caleb's relationship being a serious issue. The story develops nicely in this sequel, building on the first book while still leaving some questions to be answered in the future. I really like how the kids are slowly learning how to use their powers and we are gradually shown what potential each one of them has. Caleb brings some new zombies into play in this and some of them are entertaining in their own way. This story also has a bit of a thriller/mystery aspect that is done very well. The true culprit is hidden until the shocking revelation of the true bad guy. I am fully invested in this series now and will be following it until the end for certain. I will also most likely be looking into other works by Tamara to see if her other stuff lives up to the standards set by this series.
