Author: JL Bryan
Jenny is a shy, small-town South Carolina girl whose touch spreads a deadly supernatural plague. She can't touch anyone for long without killing them. Her life is painfully lonely until she meets a boy named Seth with the opposite power, a healing touch. Jenny's love for Seth brings the wrath of Seth's beautiful, popular and devious girlfriend, Ashleigh, who secretly wields the most dangerous power of all--the power to inspire love.
If you love gore/action + a good plot then you should definitely pick up this book. I was intrigued first knowing that there are 3 main characters to the story, all of which has their own powers and ability that is totally different from each other. Each person is connected with one another, stories dating back through time.
People can definitely relate to these characters because Bryan captured the life that teens live through each day and just added the fantasy/horror spin into the mix. I can't say this is solely YA or fantasy, not the typical horror novel but a little mix of everything.
What I noticed is that the first chapter was a little flat but as you continue to read the book, the story builds up giving you different key information of the book. I definitely had my "What now?", "Yuck!" and "huh?" moments throughout the book but finishing it, everything fitted together.
If you intend to find new authors and expand your genre like me, grab this novel. You'll never regret picking it up.
