Author: Cambria Hebert
Source: Received through blog tour in exchange for an honest review
Love or Death? A simple question really. The choice seems obvious. But. What if you never knew love, what if your life was spent just trying to survive? What if you knew your fate before you were fully grown?
And then you died.
And you were given another chance. A better chance.
This new life depended upon one thing: your job. And so you agreed. You thought it would be simple. You thought it would be cut and dry.
It never is.
And now you are left holding the fate of someone else in the palm of your hand and you have to make the ultimate choice.
Love or Death?
Recalled is the first book in the new Death Escorts series by Cambria Hebert. I don't know how much I should talk about this book. The synopsis is VERY vague, and maybe the author wants people to not really know anything going into this book. So, I won't sum it up but I will say that the job mentioned is a Death Collector.
Recalled is told from two points of view – Dex and Piper. Dex is a great, complex character. He is the ideal bad boy that makes girls swoon – rough around the edges but good deep down. He ends up having, ummm... two identities. I can't even explain this to you. You just have to read it. I was totally blown away at this point in the book. It's weird and intriguing at the same time.
Piper is the female lead character. She is a poor college student, who works at a diner and interns at a clinic. She aspires to be a doctor and she is a very caring person. She has a special “gift” which makes her interesting. I really enjoyed her best friend, Frankie, who brought a lot of laughs to the story.
The plot is very unique and held my attention the entire time. There was a lot of mystery and suspense in this. I would liked to have seen more romance, considering the amount of time that Dex and Piper spent with each other. The ending had quite the twist to it. I didn't know what to expect while approaching the ending. I'm not sure how/if this storyline continues into the next book. I know this is a series, but sometimes series have different characters. The ending of this story was wrapped up in a way that it could be the end, but I'd love to see it continue on.
