Book Review: Til Death by Kate Evangelista

Til Death (Fractured Souls #1) by Kate Evangelista 
Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal Romance)
Date Published: March 4, 2014
Publisher: Entangled Teen

Sixteen-year old Selena Fallon is a dreamer. Not a day-dreamer, but an I-see-the-future kind of dreamer. Normally this is not a problem as she has gotten pretty good at keeping her weird card hidden from everyone in her small town. Except from her best friend Kyle and her grandparents, of course. But when Selena dreams of her own rather bloody death, things get a little too freaky even for her.

Enter Dillan Sloan. Selena has seen the new guy in a different dream, and he is even more droolworthy in person. Beyond the piercing blue eyes and tousled dark hair, there is something else that draws her to him. Something…electric. Unfortunately, Dillan makes it more than clear that he does not feel the same. They just met, so why would he act like he hates her?

When Dillan and Selena are forced together one weekend to work on a school project, Selena prepares to be ignored as usual. But when she stumbles across a few undead in the backyard, Dillan comes to her rescue and reveals a whole lot more. Not only is he part of a society that hunts otherworldly creatures…she is too. And she is being targeted by a force bigger and darker than anything she ever imagined. Despite her death dream, Selena is not going to give up easy, especially when she discovers that Dillan might not actually hate her after all.

Til Death is the first book in the new series, Fractured Souls, by Kate Evangelista. This was one of those books that you learn bits at a time, and they all piece together into a bigger picture. I don't think we've been given the total big picture yet. The world building is intriguing with new creatures and some you don't see much of in fiction. It's a much needed change. I love the Love/Hate thing between Dillon and Selena. It really kept my interest. The characters aren't all that they seem, and this plays a big part in the story. There are so many lies. So many! And even after everything is out in the open, and I thought everyone was going to finally be honest, Dillon tells Selena another lie. Why?? Because it's never easy for fictional characters and their readers. That's why. It made me so mad, but it also makes me super anxious for the truth behind the lie! As if I needed another reason to be anxious for the next book.

The ARC of Til Death by Kate Evangelista was kindly provided to me by the publisher for review. The opinions are my own.

Check out my reviews of some of Kate Evangelista's books:

When Kate Evangelista was told she had a knack for writing stories, she did the next best thing: entered medical school. After realizing she wasn't going to be the next Doogie Howser, M.D., Kate wandered into the Literature department of her university and never looked back. Today, she is in possession of a piece of paper that says to the world she owns a Literature degree. To make matters worse, she took Master's courses in creative writing. In the end, she realized to be a writer, none of what she had mattered. What really mattered? Writing. Plain and simple, honest to God, sitting in front of her computer, writing. Today she lives in the Philippines and writes full time.
