Add to GoodreadsJodi Marshall isn’t sure how she went from normal teenager to walking disaster. One minute she’s in her junior year of high school, spending time with her amazing boyfriend and her best friend. The next she’s being stalked by some guy no one seems to know.
After the stranger, Alex, reveals himself, Jodi learns he’s not a normal teenager and neither is she. With a kiss that kills and a touch that brings the dead back to life, Jodi discovers she’s part of a branch of necromancers born under the 13th sign of the zodiac, Ophiuchus. A branch of necromancers that are descendents of Medusa. A branch of necromancers with poisoned blood writhing in their veins.
Jodi’s deadly to the living and even more deadly to the deceased. She has to leave her old, normal life behind before she hurts the people she loves. As if that isn’t difficult enough, Jodi discovers she’s the chosen one who has to save the rest of her kind from perishing at the hands of Hades. If she can’t figure out how to control her power, history will repeat itself, and her race will become extinct..
I'm already on the ARC list for this one so I'm just now waiting for it. And the fact that the main character is born under the 13th zodiac? Win! And umm did I just read 'Medusa'? I don't think I've read a YA book or heard of one that is about a descendant of Medusa! I can't freaking wait for this!! I just know it'll be amazing! And there's Hades aswell, yay!! :D
Cover Thoughts: I do like this cover but what IS that thing around her neck? lol All in all, it's a pretty nice cover and I like the green eyes. :)
