While you may have read stories about resurrection, the method is fascinating. Clifford created a very distinct process with strict limitations and rules that she adheres to. It is definitely not for the squeamish - things get pretty messy at times. (Though ...more

I'm so happy your back Leah. So so so happy!!
This is the FIRST YA book I've read this year!
Can you believe that?
What is even better is that this was such a great way to break the 'YA dry spell' lol
I cannot wait for more!
I went in without reading much of the premise except for one or two snippets here and there and I'm so freaking glad I did.
Powerful blood, secrets, lies, love, friendship, and loyalty all make for such a great mix and story.
I loved Ploy so much. Love how much he ...more

Rating: 4.5/5 stars
I'm going to be completely honest. I've had Leah Clifford's A Touch Trilogy sitting unread on my bookshelves for a few months now (totally not because I didn't want to read them, but that whole free time business...), so this is my first time reading this author's work. And I've gotta say... I loved it!
It took me a while to fig
So true, and such a lie at the same time when reading Vial Things. Don't let the cover fool you. This is no horror read, but a brilliant genre-bend, an amalgam of many rolled in a clever and fast-paced YA read that isn't like any other.
Are ploys lies when you don't say it? What if no one asks? So many times it's easy to answer- but you aren't Abbie, and you aren't Ploy. Each not saying, each using, both knowing the other isn't saying and is using, all while real emotions ...more
Something Only the Authors wonderful imagination could write. Its story line as unique as the characters. It's definitely creepy, its abit morbid..gross maybe? But you'll want to read it all.every single word of it..before you can finally put it down.
And Leah TOTALLY HAD ME GUESSING at whose side Ploy was on. I had no bloody (no pun intended) until the reveal at t ...more
Set in a world where a small group of humans are born with a genetic mutation that allows them to heal wounds absurdly fast (including many kinds of life threatening injuries and even survive death), this small community of resurrectionists dedicate their lives towards charging hefty fees for bringing the recently decea ...more
Vial Things is one of those stories that unravels itself in little segments, however rushes like a flooded river at the same time. The anticipation is REAL as you put together the clues to Allie's secret life and torment.
Allie is always staying under the radar, looking over her shoulder while she tries to stay absent from the "family business." With her special genetic blood, she can heal herself, and bring others back from the dead with som ...more
