Almost fifteen-year-old Caleb Hart is a Cadaver-Manipulator in the year 2025. When teens receive a government-sanctioned pharmaceutical cocktail during school, paranormal abilities begin manifesting... making the teens more powerful than the adults.

After Caleb discovers he has the rare, Affinity for the Dead, he must do whatever it takes to hide it from a super-secret government agency whose goal is exploitation.

Caleb seeks refuge in his new girlfriend, Jade, until he realizes that she needs as much protection from her family, as he does from the government.

Suddenly, Caleb finds that hiding his ability while protecting Jade and his friends is a full time job; can he escape the government, protect Jade and lose the bullies that are making him miserable?

Caleb's in high school now and thinks the chaos of last year is behind him. Unfortunately, a serial killer is on the loose and children are his victims. Caleb agrees to help the police apprehend the murderer...until the killer takes notice of Caleb and his paranormal friends.

Carson and Brett remain the bullies they always were and their posse continues to grow. How long can the two groups stay out of each others' way before there's a firestorm of retribution...

The Government Graysheets continue to keep tabs on Caleb's every move while Jade's family threatens their relationship. Can they still be together even when events threaten to tear them apart?

Clyde and Caleb's lives are predestined to intertwine as they cross paths, his history becoming Caleb's future.

A lone teenager named Jeffrey Parker, falls prey when he manifests the rare, Affinity for the Dead.The Graysheets abandon all pretense of stewardship, ripping him from his family for their nefarious purposes.

Can Jeffrey remain who he was destined to be in an environment exclusively built for mass control?

Caution! This series is going to blow your socks off! Pretty much non-stop action, emotional rollercoasters, great romantic tension, fantastic character interaction, super alpha males, awesomely strong females and the ever fabulous witty repartee we've come to love. I have to admit, I didn't want to put any of these book down. I definitely found another favorite series to follow!

I have to start by saying, I have read this entire series, so when I saw the first three books being offered in a group, I bought them to re-read all at once! DEATH WHISPERS: I don't know where to start! I LOVED this book! I felt like I was a fly on the wall listening to these kids talk unguarded...(fascinating vocabularies, by the way!) Even though the story takes place in the future, there were so many references to today's times and the semi-recent past, that it was all totally believable! Loved the characters, young teens at that in-between stage coming from so many different lifestyles. Great read!!! DEATH SPEAKS: I am now so well-versed in teen phrases that I will awe my grandchildren! :) Seriously, 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! Great plot, great interaction between characters! LOVE Clyde and Onyx! DEATH INCEPTION: I really think Tamara Rose Blodgett could make a grocery list spellbinding! Death Inception is a short story that gives some MUCH appreciated background about some of her more intriguing characters in the Death Series. First, Clyde the Zombie, but what about his life before? I will say nothing except he was all I could have hoped for!!! Next comes Jeffrey Parker, a super-talented, super-intelligent, off-the-charts cadaver manipulator. Is he the dark, mysterious legend who runs with the bad guys? If so, what happened to bring him to that point? Is he really as he appears to be as we learn his story? Sometimes an author kicks out a book with background, and it plays out like a skip in a record (black vinyl disks, think pre-digital music) or a scratch on the counter. It's distracting, but not Death Inception, it fits seamlessly with the rest of the series and makes the characters even more life-like! Tamara Rose Blodgett's writing style is refreshing, with the ability to make you laugh, cry, sigh, and still be thinking about the story and characters long after that last page.

Although the attempt at teenage-speak is sometimes annoying, the sheer originality and action of this book make up for it. I got this book for free from bookbub, bu i will be purchasing the next in te series. Very entertaining.

Death Whispers: I really like this novel. I especially love that the main character is male, as more often than not, lead roles in YA literature are female (why is that?). I’ve been looking for something along these lines to promote reading among my male student for a while, and thankfully, I’ve now found it. With a main character that can raise corpses, how can you go wrong? It is obvious that Blodgett spent a lot of time writing Death Whispers, perfecting the scientific and technological aspects of this futuristic dystopian novel. I was reminded of one of my favorite TV shows, Heroes, as I read. While many young adults will come into their special power during puberty, not all will choose to use their powers for good. And, with many new powers coming to light each year, the government, of course, is going to be on the lookout for any powers that may be politically important. One main difference, though, is that all young adults know that they may manifest these powers, and they are, therefore, subjected to a mandatory AP test to determine their placements in high school—which I think is a really ingenious idea that Blodgett incorporated into the novel, as it creates suspense in the terms that “big brother is watching you.” As the synopsis states, Caleb has a very rare talent, as do a few of his friends, and it was really fun to follow the characters as they discover their different abilities and learn to control and hide them, especially as the ever looming government could easily swoop in at any moment. What I really love about these powers, especially Caleb’s, is that Blodgett doesn’t sugarcoat them. For instance, the corpses don’t come back as they were in life, but rather in their various stages of decompose, including the smell. It was really interesting to read about this, and Blodgett writes in such a way that the reader can easily visualize it (though thankfully not smell it!)... Death Speaks 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. Death Inception Told between alternate time periods, following characters’ lives from the early 1900s to the mid 2000s, readers will learn about the life and death of our beloved Clyde, the beginnings of the human genome project, brain pulse, Parker’s inception with the Affinity for the Dead… and it’s all intertwined amazingly well. This novella changed my perspective of a few of the characters, such as Parker, and getting to know their full stories, explaining who they are, and why they are the way that they are, was really exciting, so I like the idea of waiting to read the prequel until after reading at least the first novel in the series!!
