Today is my stop on the blog your for The Colour Of Death – Big thanks to Elizabeth Davies and Rachel from Rachels Random Resources for providing me with a copy of the book for review and for inviting me to take part in the tour!
“Mad, bad and dangerous to know.”
Olivia Parr doesn’t believe her ability to see auras is a gift. It hasn’t exactly done her any favours. Quite the opposite, in fact. Having become something of a loner, she tries to avoid people and the glow surrounding them, preferring to view life through the lens of a camera, where she can’t see those telltale colours.
But when a rare visit to a theatre ends in death and bloodshed, Olivia’s life is about to become considerably more complicated.
During the mayhem, one man stands out, and not just because he seems oblivious to the terrible carnage. The reason? He has no aura.
But everyone has an aura, right?
Except for the dead.
Not only is she fascinated and intrigued by this strange, compelling man, in the aftermath of the tragedy she gains a protector; a man whose aura is deep, dark red – the colour of blood.
We are edging right into spooky season, and I was thrilled to be kicking it off with this book! Vampires, mystery, drama, this book had me hooked from the start. With a quick pace and easy to follow P.O.V changes, I easily fell into the story of Olivia, the freelance photographer with an unusual gift, the ability to see auras, and this fresh take on the vampire genre.
The main protagonists are incredibly likeable; Olivia with her no-nonsense, independent attitude, and Crow with his protectiveness and passion for the task at hand. Rochdale, however, brings in our perfect villain. Suave, smooth talking, with a constant air of arrogance about himself. I spent the whole book rooting for Olivia and Crow to come out on top, it was impossible to put it down!
I am so happy to see this is part of a series, also. I’ll be keeping my eye out for book two – With that ending, I really need to see what happens next! (And I’m also hopeful to see more of Crow and his story, he was such a compelling character to read about!)
