An awesome one-night read, with interesting characters and plot. Without going into spoilers though, I must say, the culprit was a real disappointment. There were many different options floating in my head, and it turned out to be the one I least expected, not because the author was good at hiding it, but because the author didn't put anything in there to suggest it(though the reason made sense). In the end though, it all came to together to an extent. I give this book a 9/10 and a "Would Strongly Recommend Reading" review.

Characters: 9/10
Plot: 9/10
Writing: 8/10
This was a fast, fun read. Though the ability to see deathdates is crucial to the plot, it's not the main focus, and I like that. It's more of a serial murder mystery than it is a supernatural plot; the almost magical elements fade into the background as the suspense ramps up. Much in the same vein as Jennifer Lynn Barnes' THE NATURALS, I found myself flipping through pages to find out whodunnit.

Read it in one day (and part of the night). Enough said.

Engaging and interesting and a definite read!

This was a good book overall. The writing style was easy going and kept my interest. I was surprised to learn who the killer is at the end (i.e. it's not predictable-which is awesome). I liked the premise of seeing the deathdates-it was interesting and original.

Little bit of a spoiler but not major plot point...
The only thing I didn't really like is that at the end Maddie finds her soulmate and I'm all "she's 16" she hasn't had any time to like date anyone else or anything like that but I understand it's a book so she needs a love interest. Author gets major points in my book though for no love triangles or anything (hate this trope so much).

What I like about this book is that the author throughly thinks things through with this character. She centers the story around what could actually happen if a person had this power. She takes everything into account and doesn't make every other character just accept Maddie or her claims of innocence. It's not like other books where a person has this power and everyone is just fine with it and they use it to save the world or something.
The ending was pretty good. My only problem with it was that the Aiden thing seemed kind of glazed over.
