Til Undeath Do Us Part is the first book I have read by Jessica Alter, and as is common with first embarking on the writing of a little known author I was dubious what to expect. However, after I few chapters I found myself completely absorbed by the story. The characters have a depth unique to each other and a the verbal interplay is really well done. I’m not generally taken by paranormal works, but there is enough else going on in this that I didn’t feel overwhelmed by that side of the plot. A very well put together book, and I’ll be reading the future installments in the series too.

After reading previous books by Jessica Alter I was excited to get stuck into this one. Til Undeath Do Us Part is the beginning of a new series, and a fantastic introduction to boot! The unlikely pairing of a Biologist, a Psychologist and a Psychic Medium make up the well developed characters, but despite all they offer in here I still have the feeling there is a lot more to come. Danger lurks in the sometimes dark and brooding storyline, but equally there are parts that are light-hearted and a lot more pacey. The crisp dialogue is something I’ve come to expect from Alter’s books, and I can’t wait to see what she does next.

In the past 10 years, there has been a distinct lack of imagination when it comes to the paranormal genre. Usually, you have an outcast woman/girl, who catches the eye of a dark and brooding vampire, werewolf etc. Well thankfully, there is finally some originality in 'Til Undeath Do Us Part' from Jessica Alter - you will struggle to find a weirder mix of leading characters, in a biologist, psychic medium and psychologist, but because they are so well developed, they work so well together. It is a novel that will keep you guessing, from chapter to chapter, right until the conclusion, with plenty of light-hearted moments, but with that underlying darkness that will have you eagerly awaiting the next installment of the Cryptid book series. I know that I can't wait!!

Take a typical scientific approach through biology and psychology and then add in a psychic medium, shake it all up and you have this wonderful book, Til Undeath Do Us Part by Jessica Alter. At times humorous and sometimes exciting but always intriguing with that “just one more chapter before bed” compelling nature behind it all. Personally I loved it and I’ll be recommending it to all of my friends.

Well this was quite a surprise. Til Undeath Do Us Part was pretty different from other books of this type that I have read, and the eclectic group of central characters made it even more quirky and even more enjoyable. A quite complimentary blend of science and supernatural, that you wouldn’t automatically think would go well together but Alter has put it all together really well. I’ll be eager to see if she is able to follow up this hit with more of the same.

This book is a great new spin on the tired paranormal genre that is long overdue. Jessica Alter's voice has improved since her previous series, and the result is better pacing, snappier dialog, and a book that is a fun ride from cover to cover. This is going to be a great ride.

"Do you believe the paranormal exists? ‘Til Undeath Do Us Part will challenge your beliefs. We start with Dr. Maggie Glass, the “Vampire Psychiatrist who’s not a psychiatrist and who’s never seen a real vampire.” She is a paranormal skeptic trying to expose hoaxes and wrote a self-help book about people who think they are paranormal, complete with quizzes that identify whether someone thinks they are a werewolf, demon, vampire etc. The book has made her the laughing stock of the mental health community but a popular best seller. Maggie has started a business called The Sanctuary Initiative and the goal is “to support delusional people needing intervention and to expose hoaxes.” Edward, her first team member is a psychic medium and Kalyani, the second, is a Biologist. The team is on the hunt for an active “vampire” serial killer. They stop for food one night and inadvertently come across the path of the next victim, Michelle, who is a waitress at a diner. A dark and mysterious man has been coming by the diner consistently and he matches the description of the serial killer. Unfortunately, Michelle goes missing before they can put the pieces together. The novel takes on many unique twists and turns from this point on. Things become dark and dangerous for Dr. Glass and her team. Dr. Glass, always the skeptic, is constantly irritated with Edward’s supposed medium abilities because he communicates advice that her dead mother and “bunica” (grandmother) are giving her throughout the hunt. The scary thing is that he communicates information that only her dead relatives would know causing Dr. Glass to panic at times and constantly question whether Edward is legitimate or a fake. Is the paranormal world is real or not? Beliefs are challenged and the past comes back to haunt Dr. Glass in a big way. She must decide whether to accept her past, re-evaluate her beliefs or continue to deny that the paranormal does not exist. The novel is rich in content and Jessica Alter, the author, develops strong characters. I loved the female leads in this because they were no-nonsense, get to the bottom of the problem type women. I enjoy a good paranormal novel and this one is well-written with humour, wit and depth showcasing the author’s experience as a writer in this genre. I loved the ending of this book and am anxiously looking forward to the next novel to find out what happens next to Dr. Maggie Glass!" TBR-TopBookReviewers

Paranormal genre books can these days, in my opinion, be a little stale as those of us who have read a lot of them have pretty much seen it all before. Having said that, this first-in-a-series book by Jessica Alter was something of a breath of fresh air. The plot is well thought out, and even in moments when I was sure I knew what was coming next I was often pleasantly surprised. I really liked the odd bunch of lead characters: A medium, a psychologist and a biologist? Who would have thought that would work as a partnership, but it does. All in all I loved this book in a way I never expected to, and am eager to get my hands on the next one.

This was a good book. I was expecting more of the "werewolf/vampire" type stuff that's been going around lately. I like the injection of science and rationality, and the ending was a great segue into the rest of the series! Looking forward to it!
