Til Death : Review

 Til Death (Fractured Souls #1)
by Kate Evangelista
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.
My Review
Selena has always had visions and other than her grandparents and best friend no one knows it. She has always tried to live a normal life and had no problems doing so until Dillan comes to town. Dillan messed up an assignment and has been sent off. He doesn't know why but something is different about Selena and he is determined to find out. They don't get along and more and more odd things begin to happen in their small town. While they can't seem to get along they have to work together to protect Selena.

This was an enjoyable book that had a few surprises. Some of them you could see coming some you couldn't. Selena when faced with a zombie pretty much holds it together and you see she is a strong smart girl. She is used to add things she just didn't know how strange or how much weird stuff was out there in the world. I think it helps her when she is faced with finding everything out. I liked her. Dillan bad to say I didn't care for. He was a jerk and at times to me conceited. He was a big shot but now he isn't and sometimes it seems he forgot that. I did like how they worked together at the end to solve things. I love this author and I really enjoy seeing what new things she comes up with. If you like YA paranormal and a bad boy this book may be for you.
