Our newest incranation of Tuesday is quite possibly my favorite day of the Oasis week. The day we get to share the books we have in our To Be Read list and/or suggest books for yours. This week, I'd like to suggest you give A TOUCH MORTAL by Leah Clifford a good look. In the world of image heavy cover art--legs wrapped in fabric, dystopians with their keys, shields and the like, or girls with blowing hair or flowing dresses, A TOUCH MORTAL's close-up cover alone is enough to have me reading this blurb on Leah's website:
A TOUCH MORTAL
Death isn't what Eden expected. Where the hell is her release? Her quiet ending? Not that Eden remembers the details of her final hours, but one thing is for sure--becoming a sider, trapped between life and death, was definitely not part of the plan...
For Eden, nothing seems to be coming easy. There's no way of telling what will happen when her fingertips graze human skin. The power that builds inside her, Touch, strips away morals and logic.
Some people only feel a high; others are overcome by their darkest thoughts.
But honestly there's not much time for her to worry about her effect on mere mortals. She's got her own drama. Somehow, word's gotten around that her Touch can kill her own kind. With desperate siders already camping out on her doorstep, the last thing Eden needs is the rumor to spread. Especially since it's true...AND, this is what I found on HarperCollin's website:
Eden didn't expect Az.
Not his saunter down the beach toward her. Not his unbelievable pick-up line. Not the instant, undeniable connection. And not his wings.
So long, happily-ever-after.
Now trapped between life and death, cursed to spread chaos with her every touch, Eden could be the key in the eternal struggle between heaven and hell. All because she gave her heart to one of the Fallen, an angel cast out of heaven.
She may lose everything she ever had. She may be betrayed by those she loves most. But Eden will not be a pawn in anyone else's game. Her heart is her own.
And that's only the beginning of the end.
A TOUCH MORTAL is the first of a planned trilogy.You can find Leah on:
