Description From
Caleb's in high school now and thinks the chaos of last year is behind him. Unfortunately, a serial killer is on the loose and children are his victims. Caleb agrees to help the police apprehend the murderer...until the killer takes notice of Caleb and his paranormal friends.

Carson and Brett remain the bullies they always were and their posse continues to grow. How long can the two groups stay out of each others' way before there's a firestorm of retribution...

The Government Graysheets continue to keep tabs on Caleb's every move while Jade's family threatens their relationship. Can they still be together even when events threaten to tear them apart?

I say it every time i review one of Tamara's novels, but it still reigns true. I love this book and Tamara is a fantastic writer! I think at this point you guys need to just stalk her writing life, and buy and red every book she produces. That is just my opinion, though.

Death Speaks, the sequel to the first novel in the death series Death Whispers, was a fantastic second book. It didn't dwell too much on the past. Of course the BIG issue that happened in the first novel was still hovering, but it wasn't all that was going on. A lot of series take the problem from the first novel and keep dragging it on, making up a thousand excuses of why that problem can't be resolved just yet, but Death Speaks brought a whole new conflict into the mix. A conflict, that i thought was extremely interesting and kept me entertained the entire time.

Of course like always i loved all the characters, and Jonesy is still by far my favorite. I love the crush forming between him and Sophie too. I feel like there was a lot more violence this time, especially targeted towards the female characters, so it was definitely an angst-ier book and definitely got the reader's blood pumping.

I loved it, just like i love all of Tamara's novels. The main plot in this novel was awesome and i loved reading every detail about it. I wish i could have been there with Tiff and Caleb to actually see everything. I still love the characters and think that Tamara kept them all true to nature, but Jonesy is still my favorite of them all. Go you Tamara! And everyone go pick up this novel, or any others by her =D
