So, I've been waiting for this book since the moment I put Touch of Death down. The only drawback with getting ARCs of these fantastic books is that I have to wait that much longer for the next book to be available. But I finally got my greedy hands on a copy of Stalked By Death and was instantly sucked back into the world of Jodi and the Ophi.
If you haven't already read Touch of Death, I urge you to do so. You can read my review of it here.

"That which has the power to save, has the power to destroy."

This book was so much better than the first one! I loved the first one, but I felt like this one was easier for me to follow and I couldn't put it down! It normally takes me a while to read a paperback and I read this one in two days! I also don't normally like reading books on mythology, but this series is completely changing my opinion on reading these kind of books! The plot of Stalked by Death was continued on from the last book an

I absolutely love the spin on mythology that Hashway created in this series. I have always loved Medusa and the fact that she isn't the villain in this series but rather a hero and a victim is just fantastic and completely draws you into the story line.

I really enjoyed the first book but after the ending I was really curious and maybe even a little nervous about where the story would go from there. I really shouldn't have been worried because Hashway took this series, the mythology, the story li

Jodi is busy with her new role and the leader of the Ophi School and trying to teach the remaining students how to raise and release souls. While trying to earn the their trust she notices her powers are a bit off. Off, as in, she starts raising the dead in her sleep, or after kissing her boyfriend, Alex. Yeah, she’s in trouble.
As if she didn’t have enough on her plate, a new recruit has come to the school named Chase. For some reason she finds herself uncontrollably drawn to him. Something as i

Stalked by Death picks up where book one left off. Jodi is in charge of the Ophi school now. This is a huge thing for her. She has to do her job in order to keep Hades from coming after her. It is proving to be a harder task then she thought. Getting other Ophi groups to join her is nearly impossible. She does manage to get a new member to come though. His name is Chase. Strange things start happening when Jodi is around Chase. S

Things haven’t been easy for Jodi since her run in with Hades. She has a lot of tough decisions to make and when a new Ophi joins the team he might just threaten to take away the one person closest to her. Being in charge is more difficult than she ever imagined. She has to find a way to keep everyone safe, make Medusa proud, and most importantly, stay true to herself.

I loved Stalked by death however there was something about it made me give it a 4* rather than 5* but I cant just put my finger on it. The introduction of another male lead made for an interesting read however I will always root for couples I love and I love Alex and Jodi together so for Chase to come in and change the dynamics as the bad boy who Jodi falls for was never going to go well with me and I wasnt going to like him for this reason.

I LOVED the first book in this series. I'm a big fan of mythologies (especially Greek) and so this book was right up my alley. So often second books are sort of a let down, a lull between awesome events. Not so with this one. It was literally one of those book s you just can't put down. Exciting and surprising and just the right about of romance. I loved it. I will say that the author struck a great balance between giving you enough info from the first book so you don't feel confused and didn't ...more

If you read my review on the first book in this series, Touch of Death, (my review: http://www.littleredsreviews.blogspot...) then you know I did not really like Touch of Death. I did enjoy Stalked by Death more than Touch of Death, but this series will never be one of my favorites. I would rate Stalked by Death 3.5 stars out of 5 (a half a star better than Touch of Death). I have decided to continue reading the series and I am currently reading Face of Death (the third novel in the series). I a ...more

This book is an easy summer read. I enjoyed the mythology and the fast pace of the story. I did feel that the love triangle was a little overly dramatic, though I did like the characters overall. The book was heavy on the romance and a little lighter on the story. That being said, I do look forward to seeing where the author will take us in the next installment.

Ahhhhhh... that ending! Do we seriously have to wait until 2014 for the next book??!! Longer review to come.

Wow ummm i seriously couldn't even finish it which is a first for me... I just couldn't deal with Jodi and Alex, like jeez Alex wasn't even trying!! And Jodi, dear god help me, she was so annoyong and she wouldn't talk to anybody saay Tony or Adrianna(atleast I think that's her name) like come on! Stop trying tp be hero. And if Chase is causing so much trouble then he isn't worth keeping!!

I wasn't really loving this book until the end. The plot definitely kept me reading, but I didn't enjoy the book as much as the first one. Still, the ending made this book and that's why I have to give it four stars. It was such a cliff hanger, and I'm psyched for the next book.

The main reason I didn't love the book was Jodi and the love triangle. I like Jodi, but she annoyed me in this book. Well, how she was written. I was so confused on her feelings, because 1/2 of them weren't real, but I co

*Warning, spoilers below for Touch of Death*

So I was desperate to get my hands on Stalked by Death the moment I finished Touch of Death. After Hades showed up and accepted Jodi’s deal, I couldn’t wait to find out where it would go from there, after all it wasn’t going to be smooth sailing.
So Jodi, the new Ophi leader, had to find a way to teach all the Ophi in a way that wouldn’t break her deal with Hades – ultimately killing all th

It’s not often a series does a complete 360 on you as far as likability goes. Sadly, Stalked by Death fit the bill rather perfectly this time around. It was a total shame, too, because I really liked Touch of Death and had such high hopes for this series. While I could forgive the actions and mannerisms of some of the characters in the first book, this time around I felt like they were all magnified and the new characters were ever more aggravating. I was literally shaking my head and going “WTH ...more

Stalked by Death is the second installment in the Touch of Death Series and picks up where Touch of Death leaves off. The mythology aspect that Kelly Hashway has created in this series is really interesting, with zombies, necromancers/Ophi, Medusa, and Hades, and then you have Jodi, the main character, who has the power to both heal and poison in her blood. Jodi, is an Ophi, and because of a deal she made with Hades to save them, now finds herself the leader of the Ophi and is also resp

Jodi has lost her human soul, is now full Gorgon, and is tasked with preventing a war with Hades. Oh, and she's dating Alex. Enter Chase, whose attraction to Jodi comes out of nowhere and triggers Alex's jealous side, thus revealing how emotionally stunted the characters in this book are. Their behavior towards each other is typical pubescent teen and is what you would expect if you walk up to some strangers on the street having a fight. However, readers have gotten to know some of the character ...more

Ehh!! the series just got worse. The first book was pretty good - great concept about Ophis however, main girl, Jodi seems to have been cheating on Alex with Chase. Chase is not who he seems to be as he has his own agenda. Here comes Hades ready to get rid of all the Ophis. Trouble brews as the ending comes to surprising turn of events where Jodi and her band of Ophi's are brought down into hell by Hades, where their punishment will begin. The enemies that Jodi got rid of from the first book are ...more

Jodi is now in charge of an Ophi school to train Ophi and is working hard to keep her end of the deal she made with Hades. Any mistake will mean an end to the Ophi line, and with no one joining her school but one gorgeous boy, Jodi is struggling to keep Hades happy as she starts to loose control of her powers. However, this gorgeous boy named Chase is stronger than any Ophi Jodi has met before, and being with him might just mean creating an army stro

I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Touch of Death, so I had really high hopes for Stalked By Death. Sadly, I was a tad disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed the book, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first. For me it suffered from middle book syndrome a bit.

Jodi was tough for me in this book. She is supposed to be this super strong leader, but sometimes she makes really bad decisions. Also she doesn’t see things that

*My Thoughts*

Jodi Meadows is an Ophi or a member of a group of necromancers who were born under the Thirteenth Zodiac Sign Ophiuchus (November 29 – December 17). She’s also a direct descendant to Medusa, the goddess with snakes for hair and the ability to turn someone to stone with a glare. Jodi is a bit different from other Ophi. She’s got the ability to combine powers with her left side of her body that’s filled with poison with the right side which can heal

Jodi is just not the same girl I knew and loved in the first book. The other characters were annoying, especially Leticia. I loved Alex, but the way he was around Jodi because of Chase was making me dislike him. He just went out of his way to stake a claim on Jodi, even making her kiss him right in front of Chase to prove his point. And Chase was a horrible. I didn't like him and the way he kept hitting on Jodi. He was creepy and disgusting and has no boundries. And I hated the lo

Not as good as the first, however I did enjoy the addition of Chase. He was a very intriguing, compelling and mysterious character and I found myself fascinated with the guy. I did feel sorry for him at the end. This was a good sequel but I found it a bit slow up until the last few chapters. The ending wasn't surprising I knew that the author wouldn't leave the precious characters from book one just hanging. I'm looking forward to reading book 3.

“I went for the door and opened it, not wanting to see how much this corpse was willing to destroy to get into my bedroom. His body probably would’ve crumbled to pieces before he got in, and I had no clue how to get dead guy out of the carpet.” 1 likes
“I stepped between him and the window so I was inches from his face. “There’s only one Ophi I’ve ever been interested in.” I tugged on his arm, making him face me again. I reached up on my toes and pressed my lips against his. He wrapped his arms around me, pulling me closer to him. His kiss was hungry, like he didn’t want to let go. Finally, I pulled away, completely breathless. Alex just smiled, clearly impressed with himself.” 1 likes
