Going in, I knew that it was going to be awesome and I was so right. Death left me with simultaneous feelings of anxiety and satisfaction when I closed it. I think Jared and Cameron struck me as the typical immortal enemies and Lorelei focused far more on Jared’s body and physical hotness and strength rather than really connecting to him as a being.

Book Review: Death and the Girl Next Door by Darynda Jones

As for the story – there ane a single cliche moment in it. I’m not sure what happened here, but this book is nowhere near the caliber I expect from Jones. He’s creepy and handsome.

Death and the Girl Next Door

View all 3 comments. Davis was looking at. The YA genre as a whole has grown a lot over the last few years, yet Jones still manages to bring something fresh, unique and downright hilarious to the table. Everything is going normal till Lorelei brushes against a tall, dark, earynda who starts an avalanche of change in her life. While I had a few hangups with some of the people, and not wanting info dragged out longer than should need beDeath and the Girl Next Door was still exactly what this paranormal lover was looking for.


The plot jumped out and took hold for the ending and I am a little mad about that.

I honestly wish I hadn’t read it and I think I’m going to pretend it doesn’t exist because I love Jones’s adult series and this foray into YA fiction was a complete letdown. Trivia About Death and the Gir Grammar, though, is not my area of expertise.

Trade Paperbackpages. How this should be marketed: Mones was not the case with this book. You sound like the Apple version of Gollum. I can see the same quirky sense of humor trying to come through in Lorelei, but it doesn’t quite work. When I found out that Darynda was writing a young adult series, I literally squealed in joy.

This book was a total mess. View all 20 comments. So I was happy to struggle right along with her, with not only trying to figure out what some people were, but also who was good and who was bad.

It’s not funny when someone gets hit by a truck, though I figured Lorelei was trying to buffer her reaction to the situation when she realized it had happened. Darynda’s strength s is all of them. I had to make a new shelf just for this book – “you disappointed me” – and it saddens me to put it there. Cameron seemed to lose some jext his anger whenever he spoke to Brooklyn, and he seemed almost in awe of her, especially during their conversation about auras. I also liked Lorelei’s grandparents, though they’re not featured that often in the work.


Lists with This Book. So if the next book has more demons and dark I will probably read it but if it continues on being fluff I am going to have to say bye bye to Lorelei and company and hope they all get their HEAs even though I have no idea how that will be possible. If someone is sexxah enough let them stalk and attempt to kill you.

It’s not funny when someone’s being stalked as is insinuated when Lorelei notices that Cameron’s stalking her for the first time.

A solid beginning to a new, entertaining YA series. He saved her when she should have died, keeping her soul on this Earthly plane for reasons of his own. One of the things that thf me wary of this book was the cover. It felt deatth a huge info-dump. She has created a series full of riveting plot twists and young love to ensnare teens and adults alike. Why are they both so freakishly strong? He avoids crowds, sneers at all.
