Overview

A Touch Morbid by Leah Clifford

Eden saved Az.

She fought and sacrificed and won him back from the most evil of evils. Now is the time for happily-ever-afters, right?

Not so fast.

A boy—even an angel—is hardly the solution to Eden’s problems. She’s still caught between life and death, still cursed to spread poison with her touch. She’s lost one best friend and another is quickly unraveling. And now something is happening to the mortals. Something very, very bad.

What happens in the dark spaces? The ones between life and death, love and hate, betrayal and redemption, sanity and delusion.

Or good and evil.

Eden is about to find out.

The riveting sequel to A Touch Mortal

It is rare that I like a second book in a trilogy more than the first, but Leah Clifford raised the stakes in A Touch Morbid and I was absolutely captivated. Once I started, I simply could not put it down, and I read straight through in just over 2 hours. What is big and awesome in A Touch Mortal only gets better in this installment of the characters’ story. I love the characters. The characters of this trilogy are so unique, and they all are very different from one another. Eden was one character that really grew on me in this book. She was a good character in A Touch Mortal, but I definitely felt she grew a lot and was a character I genuinely liked with this book. I super loved Gabe in this one, he was already a great character, but oh my gosh, his character was just marvelous in this one. Despite the fact I think I’m supposed to hate Luke, I found myself falling hard for him in this one. Kristen is one of the best written characters I’ve read in a long time. Leah Clifford doesn’t leave a single dull moment. The entire book is fast paced and action packed. Everything that goes down is simply fascinating, and I loved every moment of it. While there is never a slow moment, Leah Clifford still manages to have this perfect pacing; nothing is ever too much or too little. Michael was an interesting guy. I felt like he was a complete creeper, but every scene with him in it were some of the most intense in the books. They were the ones where I was flipped pages at a crazy speed. In addition to everything else going down, there were also lots of sexy times in A Touch Morbid, which I wholeheartedly approved of. A lot of questions are answered, yet Leah Clifford raises about a dozen more in the process. The plot just kept layering deeper and deeper, and I am so intrigued to see where it goes in the last installment. The whole idea of the Siders is so intriguing by itself, but when you add in all the other details of the story line, it is just brilliant. Your emotions will be in shambles by the end of this book. You also never know who to trust, Leah Clifford plays with your emotions to make you think so and so is behind something, then flips the switch and then you suspect someone else. It is absolute torture. In addition to that, just everything that happens is completely emotionally draining. I was happy, then clueless, then worried about this character or that character, all paired with these absolutely heart-wrenching moments. My one complaint? That is was not longer, as I know I have to wait out the long months before book 3 is out. The ending was an absolute killer! Everything builds and builds to this crazy peak and Leah Clifford just leaves readers hanging. This series is one of those must reads. I loved book 1 and book gets bigger and better. Basically I think all of this could be summed up with the statement of I hate Leah Clifford for being a genius. She’s a genius this series is just SO good and that makes the wait between books so agonizing. There is no other way to put it, but that A Touch Morbid by Leah Clifford was simply brilliant.

This book is a continuation of the Touch Mortal series. Eden and Az are circling each other, unable to kiss, but still desperately in love. Kristen has fallen into the depths of her schizophrenia, emerging into sanity often, but having trouble maintaining it. Gabe is "off" due to his newly Fallen status. The characters as a whole are in disarray with Eden in particular withholding a dangerous secret from Az. The plot of the novel is roughly the same as the first book, the reader will learn more about the characters and the Siders. The author handles the delicate relationships between the characters perfectly. The characters are very dynamic, always changing as more events come up and decisions are made-demonstrating the author's skill. The plot is intricately laid so as to maximize the readers' understanding. The reader will thoroughly enjoy this novel. The events of the book were fast-paced, but not so fast as to confuse the reader or force him/her to reread a scene. The romance between Eden and Az is believable, the reader will likely root for them. Gabe and Kristen's despair is palpable, they will appear very sympathetic to the reader. Overall, this book is shockingly well-written and an intense read. A Touch Morbid is recommended to young adult/teen/adult readers.

A Touch Morbid is the amazing sequel to one of my favorite 2011 reads, A Touch Mortal. This time the stakes are higher, the world is darker, and dun dun dun: CLIFFHANGER! :flings self off cliff: I had a hard time writing the review for A Touch Morbid. I loved it a lot, and I didn&rsquo;t want to ramble like I did with my review of the first book. So after I finished ATM2, I didn&rsquo;t write a review for a few weeks. I was scared to say anything because I hadn&rsquo;t read any reviews of ATM2 before I read it. I only knew what it was about because Leah revealed the summary and flap copy before I got my review copy. The ARC has no summary on it. But, see, Leah&rsquo;s twists are so twisty and there&rsquo;s so many of them somebody could spoil the book for me and I&rsquo;d still really enjoy reading it. And trust me, the twists for A Touch Morbid are insane. I reread Mortal before I read Morbid, and I actually recommend people do that because of the way Leah writes. She doesn&rsquo;t explain anything, and I like that type of writing style. It makes me feel more in touch with Eden, who also doesn&rsquo;t really understand the world. These are the books where you have to pay a lot of attention to them. You can&rsquo;t be doing two things at once. I don&rsquo;t know what to say about this book without giving it all away. I want to talk about Sullivan, a new character who is&hellip; strange and interesting. I liked her a lot and the weird thing is I guessed her ending for ATM2. There&rsquo;s no clues for Sullivan, so the fact that I knew was very strange. It&rsquo;s like I&rsquo;m psychic or something. And it&rsquo;s steamier. Eden and Az can&rsquo;t lip-lock kiss because Eden&rsquo;s breath will make Az fall and that&rsquo;s the last thing we want, right? RIGHT? But there&rsquo;s still romantic gestures between them&mdash;and they even go on a date which I really liked. That scene&hellip; <3 Except if any of you know Leah, you know it can only be happy-times for a few pages then BAM! Something huge happens. Mood killer. I will say something about the cliffhanger: it will make you scream. *I* screamed at the ending and then immediately flipped to the front of the book to start reading it again. I didn&rsquo;t, though by the time this review actually posts I might have reread Morbid. I don&rsquo;t know. It&rsquo;s just SO GOOD. And now that I look back on this review, it seems more like a ramble. Well&hellip; maybe I&rsquo;ll write a coherent review for ATM3 when I can read it?
