Death and the Girl He Loves Blog Tour

Death and the Girl He Loves
by Darynda Jones
(Author Extraordinaire)

The fate of the world is not something a girl wants on her shoulders, and that is especially true for Lorelei McAlister.  Unfortunately for her, that is exactly where the world’s fate has decided to take up residence. Lorelei has seen firsthand the horrors that lie beneath our everyday world. And those horrors are getting her friends killed. Because of this, she agrees to leave the sanctity of her hometown and is sent to a different world entirely. A boarding school. But even here she is being watched. Someone knows what she is. What she carries inside her soul.  And on top of that she’s seeing visions.  This is nothing new for Lorelei.  But these visions are something more: death, destruction, and the end of the world.   Lorelei must face the fact that there are people who want her dead, and no matter where she goes, no matter how far she runs, the lives of her friends and family are in mortal peril.  Lucky for her, her friends and family include the handsome Angel of Death, a fiercely protective half-angel, and a ragtag group of loyal supporters who aren’t afraid to get a little dirty in the name of fighting pure evil. 

~*~My Review~*~

I loved every word of this book! It being the third and last in the Darklight Trilogy I was anxious for the ending,on how Darynda was going to wrap it all up.  I was enthralled with the story just as I was for each of the other two books, heck with all of her books!
  Lorelei is hilarious, and when you add Glitch and Brooke it is wonderful the things that are said.  I really loved getting to know Kenya she was a wonderful addition and I thought it brilliant the huge role she actually played.  I think the reason the reality in Darynda’s books are so addictive is that even though they have a feel of reality to them in the midst of the turmoil the humor shines through like a rainbow after the storm.  
 Truly I laughed out loud, I sniffled back tears and most of all I couldn’t put it down until I devoured the story completely!  Jared is yummy yummy and even Cameron brooding and all is smokin’. I wish I had me some Jared and what I would give up to have the Angel of Death as my own!  The emotion in this book makes me long for an epilogue novella, a 'what happened after and who is loving on whom'. Oh in a perfect world *wink
Anyway even without the novella, the Trilogy far surpassed my expectations and after reading Charley Davidson they were somewhat high!
 Love love love and I recommend to all and of course give 5 huge Angel of Death stars (you know hot, sexy, smoking, shiny, need I go on?)
