It is finally Friday! This week has been just long. My son had to be taken to the ER this week and it all just got scarier from there. No one likes to see their kid sick especially a toddler. He is doing ok, not great. But hopefully with some medicine and rest he gets better.
Onto happier things though! Today I want to show you a really amazing book I had the chance to read, Death’s Kiss. I absolutely loved the cover of this book and the actual read didn’t disappoint either.
Life is valuable. Death is a necessity. In Yliria, this is not a contradiction.New Year’s Eve 2054. A virus, later named the BlackJack, struck and killed 3/4 of the world’s population. Only those who were 21 and younger were not infected. Treaties broke off. Countries severed connection to the outside world. And the country of Yliria built its own invisible walls.
Thirty-eight years later…Yliria is now at peace. But nothing is gained without sacrifices.Yuri’s life was perfect. Family. School. Career. Then there’s Ryoma. Her one true love. Nothing could go wrong when she has everything planned out. But on the night of their anniversary, it did not end with a kiss.
Ripped from their normal lives, both Yuri and Ryoma woke up from a dream to face the real nightmares. As a punishment for their parents’ treason, they must serve the government—the System—as the new Aces of the Court Department, assigned to oversee and maintain the peace and balance during the weekly shuffle.One week. 13 lives. Armed, not with a weapon, but the same virus that destroyed the world. The Aces must escape their new fate. If not, the only path left in their future is the one covered in blood.
Anime meets Romeo and Juliet. A love story behind an evil corporation.
The premise of this story revolves around a kiss that kills. That kiss contains a disease that killed most of the population years ago. The two main characters are turned into killers against their will and intend to take down the corporation in order to be together.
While I enjoyed the premise, story, and characters the writing seemed a bit drawn out. A lot of the information wasn’t necessary. A good read for those who like dystopian futures with a dash of romance.
