With secrets swirling around her, powerful allies unraveling, and life-and death-as she knows it eroding, Eden and those she loves tread dangerous ground. Can she trust anyone? Will her unearthly powers be her salvation or her downfall? A sweeping, dark, and sexy paranormal romance that will haunt readers with an inventive mythology and a cinematic New York City filled with shadows and longing.

SPOILER ALERT:  If you have not read A Touch Mortal, do not read this review!

A Touch Morbid was all that I hoped for and more.  I was pleased with A Touch Mortal but I was left wanting a little more.  That was so not the case with this one.  I loved everything about it (except that it ended!)

All of the characters have really changed since the end of A Touch Mortal.  Eden is stronger but she is also having some troubles that she is unwilling to share with the others.  She still hasn’t quite learned how to trust people and be open with them but she is better.  Az is his usual self but he struggles without Gabe and he doesn’t like to tell Eden everything.  I loved Jarrod!  He was so nice and sweet and vulnerable at times.  I also liked seeing the other side of Kristen and more about Luke but I don’t want to give anything away so I will shut up about those two.  Let’s just say that they both start to grow on you in this book.

The plot was absolutely fabulous!  It was so fast-paced.  I had the hardest time not reading this one straight through.  There was so much going on and I just wanted to know how everything fit together in the end.  Also, with this one the chapters switched points-of-view between Jarrod, Eden, Gabe, and Kristen which only made the book better.  I felt like I got to know them a lot more this way.

Overall, A Touch Morbid is all that I could have hoped for and so much more.  Fans of A Touch Mortal will absolutely adore it.  (And if you are like me and didn’t love A Touch Mortal, I think you will find this one very enjoyable!)
