MAJOR HYPE FOR THIS!
Dudes, This was amazing. So much more than I expected.
Holy crap! This book blew me away. I really wasn’t sure what to expect when I picked the book up. I’ve read books that have immortal (or extremely long-living) humans in them, but it’s always been a tossup for me. More than half the books I’ve read with immortality I ended up disliking. Some authors pull off amazing stories, while others just kind of flop. This one falls into the former category. The title “Fear My Mort ...more
First things first, the book pulled me in right from the beginning. It wasn't just the description that caught my attention, but the title. The title seemed to have an edge to it! :) Once I started reading it, the book totally did not disappoint! The main character, Ava, is a girl who lives in a ultra-modern world where people don't exactly die when they get hurt. They "regenerate". Normally, I'm not much of a sci-fi fan (if this falls ...more
Yeah. That's ...more

Because why should they? If someone dies, they'll come back to life . . . well, at least until a person is well in ...more
In the land of immortality first death is just a pain in the butt.
From there I was taken on a roller coaster ride of emotions. As Ava preps for her Implosion (a coming of age tradition where ...more
FEAR MY MORTALITY started with a unique and engaging premise and stayed there, with a story that holds the reader's interest from beginning to end. Full of action, intrigue, heartbreak, a little romance, and desperation this futuristic story had it all. If you enjoy reading in the dystopian or scifi genre, definitely pick this one up!
I began this book late at night and thought I'd just read a few chapters before bed so that I would have a head-start in getting it fini ...more

Holy WOAH! Fear My Mortality was definitely one heck of an awesome ride! I don't know what it is exactly about this book's summary that attracted me, but I knew once I read it that it was a book that I needed to experience. I'm so glad I went with my instincts because Fear My Mortality was a badass book and an absolute thrill to read!
The whole concept of the book was so interesting. It's a world where all humans are immortal and killing is considere...more
Okay, I’m not really just going to leave it there! Let me start by saying the synopsis for the book doesn’t do it justice, in my opinion. But it is a good one-liner about the premise of the book, which ...more
Quick & Dirty: Action packed adventure full of romance, suspense and an intriguing premises! I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a unique dystopian read!
Opening Sentence: I never could watch anyone die.

What keeps you human when you know you're able to come back?
This story is one that I feel everyone should read. Fear My Mortality relates to literally everyone. Death is a constant in our lives, it surrounds us with the sad reality of our world. To have a book bring it to light in such a way makes you actually think about things in a different light.
While the book is quite large it was a quick read. I sat down and read 100 pages within a ...more
REVIEW BY: Arianna, age 13 years, 1 month
MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:
This book was fast-paced and intense. The plot was unpredictable.
My favorite character is Michael because he does everything he can to help Ava after he kills her brother. He sacrifices his life for hers many times which is admirable.
My favorite part is when they get to Starsguard because they are finally safe from the ...more

WHAT I LIKED: This book has so many problems that I feel I cannot possibly list them all in a short review. To keep things fair, I will start with some positives:
It's fast-paced. There is so much action that it almost gets tiresome. Ava is captured, imprisoned, drugged, beat up, and shot at so many times, it's a wonder she could have possibly survived all that. In between these perilous scenes are some very brief moments of safety, just enough time for Av ...more
Actual Rating: 3.26
I know, I know, I know. 3.26 is a weird number. But I simply just couldn't decide on a more common number that portrayed what I really thought about the book.
There are so many things that I liked and so many things that I didn't - I think Fear My Mortality was the type of book where there was so much action happening with some internal conflict and sweet moments thrown in.
I think it's time ...more
A world where no one can die, or rather can't die for centuries, and even in the end they receive natural painless deaths. Rest of the time every time someone is killed or gets hurt they get regenerated. One of the rare good things about the book was that the protagonist Ava is actually the only mortal (I would have considered this a spoiler, but the other title of this book is, Fear my mortality) in this world ...more
