4 of 5 stars
Senza Fyne is the belle of the ball, but she has an irrational fear of Death. It haunts her waking hours and strolls through her dreams. When she meets Mr. Knell, her heart is lost to the devastating handsome man who teases her that there is a way to cheat Death. With each fleeting meeting they have, Senza is drawn to him until she can stand it no longer and asks him for the secret. What she doesn't realize is that the wish she wants may not be what she thinks it is.
The is an wonderful and intriguing book. The author writes very well and I was drawn into the story one heartbeat at a time. Senza's emotions are painted with such vibrancy that I felt I knew her well. The middle of the book dragged a bit as Senza gives much exposition without much action, but it didn't stop me from reading although that is the reason why I've rated it a 4 star instead of a 5 star book. There was an unexpected ending which I really enjoyed and felt was perfect for the story. Fans of young adult stories will definitely enjoy this book. Recommended.
I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
