In Short
- Violet and Jay's character's grew.
- I wasn't as gripped to Desires of The Dead as I was with The Body Finder.
- I found the new characters refreshing and easy to like.

In Long
As soon as I had finished The Body Finder I wanted to read Desires of the Dead. Sadly that didn’t happen and it took awhile for me to get to Desires of the Dead. Oh how I wish I had got to it sooner! Kimberly quickly followed on from The Body Finder, developing a new storyline which is as engrossing and addicting as The Body Finder. I love Kimberly’s ability to make you think that you know what’s going on and who the mystery person is to then throw it all back in your face and change everything you thought you knew.

All the characters grew in this book, Violet’s character become more likeable throughout the book and I often felt a lot of sympathy for her. Jay’s character became more interesting in this book, I liked how he became a stronger person and wasn’t too ‘lovey dovey’ but still very sweet and adorable. I think the new characters in this book added so much to the storyline, it was refreshing to have new characters alongside the main characters which are very easy to like.

Although I did love this book as much as The Body Finder when I think back to how much I was engrossed, I didn’t find myself as intrigued by the mystery person in Desires of the Dead as I did The Body Finder. There just wasn’t the same feeling for this person as there was in the first book, it just wasn’t as spooky or creepy!

Final Thoughts
Desires of The Dead is a definite read if you enjoyed The Body Finder, it was nice to spend more time with Violet and Jay and great to see them grow as characters.
