Book Review: A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford

AUTHOR: Leah Clifford
PUBLISHER: Greenwillow

PAGES: 432

SERIES/STAND ALONE: Series book 1 (A Touch Morbid, A Touch Menacing)

SOURCE: Bought on Amazon
OUTLINE: 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.
Yeah.
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.
MY THOUGHTS
(Read in 2011)
This review is from notes I had.
Going into this book I had high hopes that it was going to be awesome. Why would I do that when it might just break my heart? Have you read the synopsis? It was a different take on angels and sometimes subjects need to have a new or fresh perspective in order to keep a readers attention (or is that just my attention).
So where am I going with this and what's my point. My point is that while at first I was confused with what was happening and the mix of all the characters just kind of popping up. I thought this is going to be hard for me to follow and I'll lose interest and that is when all my excitement for the book was lost. I didn't want it to be because it had potential. I'm not a DNF, quick to give up type reader. It's really hard for me to give on a book because I feel if I start it I should give the author a chance to wow me. (I mean sometimes the best parts are at the end.) So I figured maybe it was just my mood. So I put the book down for a few days.
After coming back to the story I can say I began to like it, I didn't love it, but it's better than just hating it. As the story unfolded I began to see the characters more clearly. I don't remember being to thrilled with Eden as a character.

More to come.
