Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for The Colour of Death by Elizabeth Davies. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for my stop on the tour! Check out my review and let me know what you think.
“Mad, bad and dangerous to know.”
Olivia Parr doesn’t believe her ability to see auras is a gift. It hasn’t exactly done her any favours. Quite the opposite, in fact. Having become something of a loner, she tries to avoid people and the glow surrounding them, preferring to view life through the lens of a camera, where she can’t see those telltale colours.
But when a rare visit to a theatrer ends in death and bloodshed, Olivia’s life is about to become considerably more complicated.
During the mayhem, one man stands out, and not just because he seems oblivious to the terrible carnage. The reason? He has no aura.
But everyone has an aura, right?
Except for the dead.
Not only is she fascinated and intrigued by this strange, compelling man, in the aftermath of the tragedy she gains a protector; a man whose aura is deep, dark red – the colour of blood.
The Colour of Death is a unique paranormal suspense about a freelance photographer, Oliva Parr who has the ability to see auras. I thought this concept was really fascinating. I don’t think I’ve ever read a concept quite like it, so I jumped at the chance to read this one.
I love Olivia and her ability. Not only is her aura ability intriguing, so is she as a character. Her independence is very obvious and I really love that, despite her abilities, she still finds the paranormal a bit hard to believe. I enjoyed her relationship with Crow. It doesn’t start off as friendly, but as they grow to trust each other, it is compelling.
Elizabeth Davies has penned a well-paced and well-crafted novel. I found the premise entertaining and the follow-through satisfying. I am definitely looking forward to more in this series.
The Colour of Death is a book worth checking out. I didn’t want to set it down and I’m excited to see more from Elizabeth Davies. Recommended!
Elizabeth Davies is a paranormal author, whose books have a romantic flavour with more than a hint of suspense. And death. There’s usually death…
