A Life of Death

A Life of Death by Weston Kincade

5 stars

(Excerpt from Goodreads) Alex Drummond is a troubled high school senior with a checkered past, a broken home, and a surprising ability. When he touches items that murder victims held in their final moments, Alex relives the events in gruesome detail, seeing what they saw, thinking their thoughts, and even feeling what they felt. But who will believe a troubled teen, especially when the murders are so close to home and might reveal skeletons hidden for hundreds of years? Join Alex as he struggles to find his destiny, understand love, solve the mysterious murders within his small home town, and speak for victims who can no longer speak for themselves.

The story starts at an older Alex is telling his son about his life. When Alex is a teenager, his dad is killed by a drunk driver and he goes to live with his mother and abusive step-father. If this isn’t hard enough, he develops the ability to touch an object that a person held in their final moments and experience what happened and the dead and he wants to do something about their deaths. But he struggles to help when he is all ready beaten and has to face unbelievers that are going to make this even harder.

Wow, that’s all I can say. This book surprised me. I got sucked in and just had to find out how it ends. It’s now hard enough to go through the teen years without the abuse but to add a paranormal gift on top of that and you have a book with so much potential. I couldn’t do anything beyond read as fast as I could to find out what is going to happen next.

This is a great story that anyone would like. I really hope there are more books about Alex Drummond to come.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
