As soon as I got this book and began reading it, I was hooked. I loved reading every moment in this book! First off, the plot line I felt was amazing! I really liked the idea of magic, zombies, and of course a love lost too soon. As the reader, it captured me in the moment of Wren in her grief yearning to find a way to bring him back. I also adored her strength to do such a thing without even knowing what she is doing. She showed some great perseverance. Another thing that grab me about this book is the drama. I loved drama. Wren in caught in magic that she knows she has but it is not spoken out loud in her family. I really enjoyed watching the family drama unfold before my eyes. It was like opening a Christmas present! Wren’s family held back loads of secrets from her so when it is finally revealed it was BAM! So freaking awesome! The love interest in this book is also great. Wren, still grieving over her Danny, never thought she find another love again. I really like how this love all played out. Gabe is such a open guy and one hell of a great listener. When he was listening to her so intently he made my heart melt. He was so sweet, non-judging guy who knew that Wren was in trouble and needed some help. One thing this book has, zombies! I mean you got to love them right? The whole zombies aspect in this book is great! I loved reading about Danny and seeing him as a zombie. Things aren’t always what they seem, but Danny isn’t the zombie I imagined him to be. Cold Kiss is one great book that you must read. I can tell you right now that you will read this book in one sitting (just like I did). You will cry. And your heart will break and be made whole again. I give it 4 BITES! Happy Reading! Special Thanks to Yara for the book tour!
“It seemed so right. Danny was mine, I was his, and that wasn’t going to work if he was dead. So I would make him not dead, not anymore. I didn’t think any further than what it would feel like to kiss him again, to wrap my arms around him and bury my head against his shoulder.
That was my first mistake. It also turned out to be the biggest.”
When her boyfriend, Danny, is killed in a car accident, Wren can’t imagine living without him. Wild with grief, she uses the untamed powers she’s inherited to bring him back. But the Danny who returns is just a shell of the boy she once loved.
Wren has spent four months keeping Danny hidden, while her life slowly unravels around her. Then Gabriel DeMarnes transfers to her school and somehow, inexplicably, he can sense her secret. Wren finds herself drawn to Gabriel, who is so much more alive than the ghost of the boy she loved. But Wren can’t turn her back on Danny or the choice she made for him—and she realizes she must find a way to make things right, even if it means breaking her own heart."
