Dystopian fiction with zombies and a nice storyline

  • Sep 26, 2013
Second out of three novels in the Starborn Saga, If It Kills Me continues the story of teenager Mora as she struggles to come to terms with her new powers, keep her family safe from the zombie-like greyskins, and understand her growing attraction to rival brothers.

Normal Connor continues to claim Mora’s heart, but his foolhardy bravery might make the decision between him and his more powerful sibling easy after all. Meanwhile Mora’s learning more of evil Jeremiah’s past, and the history of this dark dystopian world.

I particularly enjoyed the author’s technique for interlocking storylines—past and present, Connor’s journey and Mora’s, all well-told and well-separated without losing the reader in complications. Mora may feel “like my head has been run over by a truck,” as the stories blend, but the reader never does.

Multiple storylines help this book avoid the second-of-three slump and keep the action fresh and new. The final crisis is powerfully told, with lots of action, shocks and surprises. And Mora’s occasionally repetitive thoughts are easily excused—she’s a teenager. Ending with a pleasing mix of cliff-hanger and healthy resolution, If it Kills Me paves the way nicely for book three and leaves me eager to read more.

Disclosure: I was lucky enough to be offered a free ecopy in exchange for my honest review.
