It slid over me like warm water and caused a sharp tug in my belly. It took a bit to not associate the voices with the adult series, but once I was in, it was good.
Cameron was pretty much a background antagonist for a good bit of the narrative and it didn’t get much clearer as the book went on. If the beginning hadn’t been so enjoyable I darjnda gi I apologize for my gushing status updates in the beginning.
I think Jared and Cameron struck me as the typical immortal enemies and Lorelei focused far deth on Jared’s body dexth physical hotness and strength rather than really connecting to him as a being. He was sent to stalk and kill her, but he couldn’t so he saved her life.
When Lorelei learns that she herself has some paranormal powers, she begins to understand some of the mysteries of her past. Luckily, I already knew what Nephilim were, so I could infer a lot. It is also one of my favorite …more Hello! Throughout, it’s quite good, certainly not lacking, but she has a few gems dispersed in Deathparticularly during the Lorelei-Jared lovey scenes.
With a strong plot, sexy romance, brilliant and lovable characters, Death and The Girl Next Door is pure epicness all-around. I ended up reading it twice just so that I had time to absorb all the information.
Hardly any explanation – There were a lot of things in this book that just went unexplained, period. I was fascinated by him right from the start and once it was revealed what he was I was even more excited and fascinated. But hey, don’t take my word for it.
This book ended up being entirely different than I anticipated. Clearing her head, Lorelei searches for the boy that she touched, but there is no one in sight. No love triangle as the description leads you to believe, yay!
View all 3 comments. Even more puzzling than the sudden appearance of Jared is that Lorelei now has a stalker. This is not the case with Cameron. Books by Darynda Jones.
After finding out the who’s who game Lorelei decides to side with Jared and figure out exactly what all this prophet stuff is about. Grammar, though, is not my area of expertise. Seriously, dude, you’re just embarrassing yourself now.
Then, we must take a minute to appreciate the kissing scenes. Will his decision get him into trouble in Heaven, and can Cameron contain his rage against Jared? How I think this could have been improved: She also has two fabulous best friends who are lively, supportive, and provide us with plenty of humoristic banter.
The boy darynad tall, strong and solid and … breathtaking. Original premise this is not. Even from a distance you burn, you scorch anyone who gets too close.
I also liked Lorelei’s grandparents, though they’re not featured that often in the work. The fact she calls her iMac “iPrecious” and the reference to the Lord of the Rings did make me grin. When Cameron came into the picture, I didn’t really pay any mind to Brooklyn calling him “hot” or whatever.
Lorelei does not come without her two best friends, and before talking about Lorelei, we must admire this trisome of friends! Because this is pretty much my only motivation to read it, I’ve been looking for books with Death as a character for a while now. I don’t care how hot someone is, if they tried to kill me, I’d be either angry, scared, hurt, or concerned, not lusting.
Who is this mysterious boy, Jared and why is Cameron stalking her? It’s not funny when someone gets hit by a truck, though I figured Lorelei was trying to buffer her reaction to the situation when she realized it had happened. I look foreword to seeing where these teens travel to on their quest and who they become in the process.
Just as I expected, Lorelei is a witty, smart, fun and kick-ass protagonist. They’re the kind of characters that just draw you in; especially Lorelei, who you can’t help but appreciate for being so real. She’s got her grandparents and the support of her best friends, and high school is not quite as painful as she thought it would be.
Book Review: Death and the Girl Next Door by Darynda Jones
Until the day the school’s designated loner, Cameron Lusk, begins to stalk her, turning up where she least expects it, standing outside her house in the dark, tough, sexy Jared Kovach – comes to school.
How does Lorelei fit into the all this madness? The beginning of Death was a bit plotless but still entertaining. What I Liked 1. There was a problem adding your email address. Most likely, said boy sacrifices something to be with this girl and probably pisses off a lot of people by doing so.
DEATH AND THE GIRL NEXT DOOR by Darynda Jones | Kirkus Reviews
I like it when authors try something outside of their comfort zone. The caption below it read, Taken the day we lost our beloved brother and friend. I definitely won’t bother to read the following books. It’s igrl of the same old, same old that’s being churned out hand over fist and it’s so disappointing to see a book like this with Jones’s name on it.
