Samantha’s memories have returned to her. But instead of bringing her peace, they’ve brought her only more turmoil. She now recalls the dark addiction to feeling other people’s deaths, and every day is a struggle to control her urges.

At least she has Austin to help her…or does she?

Even with her memories, Samantha doesn’t know the truth of her past. And her secrets may prove detrimental to everyone she loves. Can she unravel the mystery of who’s been pulling her strings before it’s too late? Or will Austin be the one to suffer from her mistakes?


1thoughtsSam finally has her memories back but there are still secrets that she needs to learn in order to get the full picture of what’s going on. Just when she thought things were going to be settling down, her life gets flipped upside down. Austin is pinned for murders and it’s up to Sam to prove his innocence.

I will be honest that I had some issues with the first book, Feeling Death. I think primarily because Sam had a cheating problem but I’m glad to say that’s not the case in this book. She’s finally got her real husband back and nothing can break the bond.

D.T. definitely flipped the tables on my view of Nixon as well. I can’t believe I felt sorry for him in Feeling Death but in this one you start to see his true colors. The dude is crazy. A certified psycho with an obsession for Sam.

“My end game was to do whatever needed to be done to make Sam mine.”

Not only do we have the storyline of Sam’s empath powers causing her to become addicted to death, but her addiction is now transferring to Austin which poses a huge problem. Plus, the leader of their group goes missing, there’s a serial killer on the loose and there’s the fact that Sam is supposed to be the “villain” of the story when she’s the one trying to save people. There was so much going on in this story that there was no room to be bored.

I honestly have no idea where the author is going to take this story next or how it will all play out in the end but I am strapped in a ready for the rest of the ride. She’s made me flip on characters that I was sympathetic to and made me reevaluate everything I thought from the previous book. Not many authors can make me feel like I just got off of the Tilt-A-World but D.T. has managed to spin all my feelings around and leave me disoriented, and I enjoyed every minute of it.

If you completely immerse yourself in death, eventually it will welcome you home into its sweet embrace.”
