Bookish - Andrea Thompson
....I adored Jade. Jade comes from a rough background. She has an alcoholic, abusive father. She was removed from the home and lives in the care of her aunt. A lot of people judge her, but Caleb only sees her for herself, a girl he's crazy about. Their caring, slow-building relationship was probably my favorite aspect of the story.

Reader - J. Stephan
The kids grow up a bit in this one and of course with age comes greater danger and responsibility. New worlds take them on a journey of self discovery and hone their innate potential. They also find out how they jumped the evolutionary train ahead of the rest. Well done series...and I've never been a fan of zombies but this series takes a different course and changed my mind. Enjoy the read!

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. I mentioned the support cast, but they all play a huge role in the books. I really enjoyed Caleb. His voice felt very authentic. He was snarky and sarcastic, but also caring to those he loves. Throughout the series, Caleb is put to the test. He makes some dangerous, unwise choices at times, but mostly for the right reasons. His best friends, the J's, were very funny and always had Caleb's back. I adored Jade. Jade comes from a rough background. She has an alcoholic, abusive father. She was removed from the home and lives in the care of her aunt. A lot of people judge her, but Caleb only sees her for herself, a girl he's crazy about. Their caring, slow-building relationship was probably my favorite aspect of the story. Call me a romantic. Their relationship doesn't exactly go smoothly, though. Jacob's abilities, her family, and circumstances beyond their control put them to the test. And lastly, Caleb's parents, Kyle and Alicia. I found them to be funny, a great source of comic relief. And most importantly, they're present. They play an actual, big, part in the stories. 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.

This was an intense read. With Caleb on probation, the parallel world of the sphere in jeopardy (I just love the intermingling of these two series!), and an insanity drug tearing Caleb’s friends apart, this novel keeps the reader immersed in its pages until the very last page. Be prepared to visit the entire spectrum of emotions as you read this harrowing novel, especially as Caleb must battle not only the physical threats around him, but also his inner turmoil and rage, a constant threat to those around him, and what landed him on probation in the first place. If you’ve read The Savage Vengeance, then part of this novel involving the sphere will already be known to you, but Blodgett does a great job altering the scene so it focuses more of the teens in this version, than on the Band as in The Savage Vengeance version. And… unbeknownst to us readers when we first read TSV, but Caleb and his friends don’t just visit once, but twice—the second of which is the most savage and heart pounding or the two encounters (and if you’ve read TSV, then you know just how heart stopping the first encounter was!!!) . I was on pins and needles throughout this entire novel, worried for the safety of everyone, but especially the females as worlds collide and the Graysheets willingly subject their own “creations” to highly evil circumstances. While I hate to ever add a spoiler in my reviews, I think it is important to note that there is no rape in this novel, or in any of Blodgett’s other novels, for that matter. While the fragment do exploit women, Blodgett has never written in a rape scene, or had anything so vile happen to any of her female characters. I think it is important to note this because, as a female, I know that I shy away from all novels that deal with such a vile, touchy topic, and sometimes so much as the fear of an allusion to rape will cause me to refrain from picking up a novel. So, readers, rest assured, no females are raped in this novel, though there are close encounters. One of the things that I really love about Blodgett is how real her characters and situations are, even though elements of the paranormal are throughout the entire story. Blodgett captures the truth that is growing up and coming of age. The friendships, humor, heartache, and anger, are all present and very real. I especially loved how, in this novel, Blodgett tests Caleb and Jade’s connection, presenting truths to both that they were previously blind to, and I am highly interested to see where their relationship goes in future novels. Five stars.

Caleb and the gang are all back and the excitement is non-stop. Caleb is on trial for murder by Zombie. Jade is turned over to an unsavory family for foster care and there seems to be something sinister laying just under the surface. An unexpected alliance is offered to Caleb by Parker…and Parker hints that the dimensional jumper (Randi) might know where Caleb needs to go to figure out the key to defeating the Greysheets. In attempting to save his own world, Caleb and friends are caught in a battle (war of sorts) when they jump into the other dimension. You’d think that was enough... but then Caleb and the gang return from the dimensional jump things seem to go from bad to worse. I think Caleb says it best when he says, “The probation was not expired, I was living with Gramps, Garcia was a pawn on the chessboard for the Graysheets, Gale and Clyde faced prejudice at every turn and Brett was a complication that got bigger every day. Hell it loomed." Yes, the Greysheets were really coming out to play now… Caleb’s friends and loved ones are coming up marked with a star scar, slowly drugging them into insanity. He must find the cure in time and save his friends. Caution! This book is going to blow your flip flops off! Pretty much non-stop action, emotional rollercoaster, great romantic tension, fantastic character interaction, super alpha males, awesomely strong females and the ever fabulous witty repartee we’ve come to love. I love the transition between the way the language is adjusted to accommodate the different dimensions locale. To top it off, many secrets about the Greysheet and the paranormal abilities are revealed! I have to admit I didn’t want to put this book down, and I definitely found another favorite and I know this is now my new favorite in this series! Awesome job Tamara Rose Blodgett you even had me yelling at the book!
