BLOG TOUR: Stalked by Death by

Welcome to my stop on the Stalked by Death Blog Tour!! I am so excited to be taking part of this tour. My post includes a review and giveaway at the end! Be sure to check it out! Here is the Link to my Touch of Death (Book 1) review. Let me know if you have read the other book in this series? What did you think? Leave me a comment!

Title: Stalked by Death
Author: Kelly Hashway
Release Date: August 13, 2013

Jodi knows that any slip-ups made by the Ophi--a special group of necromancers born under the 13th sign of the zodiac--will fall on her shoulders... and that Hades is just waiting for them to screw up so he can wipe out the Ophi line.

Unfortunately, Jodi has only convinced one Ophi to join her school: A hot guy named Chase who jeopardizes her relationship with Alex. Jodi loves Alex, but Chase can enhance her powers with just a touch—making her stronger than any Ophi has ever been.

Her mixed emotions send her powers surging out of control, and the dead start rising without her conscious summoning—exactly what Hades doesn't want! If she chooses Alex over Chase, she may lose the battle to Hades, leading the Ophi race to extinction. If she chooses Chase, she might be able to stop Hades for good… but lose everything else.

Jodi needs to figure things out fast--because death is stalking her at every turn.

My Review
Stalked by Death picks up where book one left off. Jodi is in charge of the Ophi school now. This is a huge thing for her. She has to do her job in order to keep Hades from coming after her. It is proving to be a harder task then she thought. Getting other Ophi groups to join her is nearly impossible. She does manage to get a new member to come though. His name is Chase. Strange things start happening when Jodi is around Chase. Specifically when he touches her. Her emotions are going crazy and so are her powers. The dead are rising when Jodi is sleeping, showing up in her room! Not to mention her relationship problems with Alex. Chase has kind of thrown a wrench into their relationship. Will Jodi's new power with Chase prove to be helpful or harmful? Who will Jodi choose? With all these crazy risings will Hades keep his word and come after Jodi?

Jodi grew somewhat in this book as a character. She learned how to deal with the stress of her new responsibilities pretty well. considering she's a teenager! I felt bad for her throughout the book, she had so much going on. I think she came out a stronger person though. There are a few new characters introduced too, who are great!

A book wouldn't be good without some boy drama! Which this one has! Sometimes a little to much. I was to the point where I thought Jodi should just be alone for a while to get her head on straight. Jodi definitely has some feelings for Chase. There's no denying it. But, how do you choose between the one you love and the guy who increases your power with just a touch. Lets not forget that Chase is also insanely good looking and  flirty. This was the fist time I thought a relationship might be doomed. I am still Team Alex however. I hope there is no permanent damage between Jodi and Alex but, I honestly don't know. I felt like during parts of the book the guy drama was kind of overpowering but, at the end it alllll made sense. 

The end of this book was crazy! I was like WHAT JUST HAPPENED!?!? I have to know what is going to happen. I was so hooked that I didn't even realize I was at the end when I turned the last page. I am looking forward to Face of Death which will be out in January of 2014!
