I got another review of Dead & Dead For Real. IT made my day!
“Dead & Dead for Real” was awesome. Katherine is such an amazing character, and Nick is a great match for her. All too often I read works that feel clearly derivative of other books (especially in thrillers/espionage/terrorist genre), and although I appreciate literary influences when something this original comes along it is a refreshing change of pace! It wasn’t predictable or cliché, (seriously did not see that twist with the ‘voice’ coming) and sometimes it was cutthroat and harsh, and other times I was nearly breathless from the intensity and violent passion--especially toward the end – don’t think I put it down once in the last quarter of the book or so. I finished it in a few short nights and went through so many highs and lows, it felt like a rollercoaster. I enjoyed the ending and was happy to see that this is the beginning of a series and with more to come? But it’s not a cliffhanger (thankfully). Lots of violence and action and dead bodies, but it’s not graphic or overly gratuitous. Works with the story well. Recommend to fans of action/thriller/suspense.
