Good vs. Evil in Death Cheater by Danielle Thorne
I don't know about you, but I love unique books,different from anything I've ever read and this is one. I don't normally read this type of novel, as I'm more into romantic suspense, but I truly loved Death Cheater. Athena Gray has a hard time building relationships because of her gift. Dan is the only boy she's felt comfortable around, and she begins to build hope. Then a butterfly in a collection returns from the dead and disappears. This nearly dissolves their relationship, since it was in a display case at his house and belonged to his brother, a collector's item. She lives with her older sister who is busy with college and work, so she's mostly on her own. A tale of good versus evil shows an evil person with his own agenda. He demands she help him, or her family and Dan will pay. Can Athena find a way to release his hold on her without endangering those she loves? The woods behind the high school are deep, dark, and mysterious, woods she once loved and found comfort in until the evil one appeared with his hounds. She enjoyed walking home from school beneath their leafy cover until he runied her special place. Dan offers to help, but she doesn't want to involve him anymore than he is for fear of what might happen to him. When she finds her sister has disappeared, she has no choice. Will this be the biggest mistake she ever makes? Her sister's life hangs in the balance. Vivid description pulls you into the story, and I loved the way she took care of the mean girls in the restroom, the ones who told her she couldn't use "their" restroom anymore. Athena will use it to her heart's content, and she won't back down. Available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Sony, and Desert Breeze Publishing, Inc.
