Still in Awe!
Paranormal isn’t usually my style. I’ve stepped outside of my comfort zone at the urging of others and was pleasantly surprised. Not even sure how I stumbled upon “Death Knows My Name”, but it was a banner day when I did!
Mayne St LeClair feels cursed. Everyone she loves or gets close to dies. Her only friend, Devon DeMonte, shares her loss literally and figuratively. Ectain “Eric” Edeck can no longer watch Mayne hide away and suffer – feeling as though she is responsible for so much death, and finally appears to her. I say “appears” because Eric is Death…literally.
This is where my black and white mind would say, “Oooookay!” and close the book. But, I kept reading, and I was drawn in further and further by the biblical references/inferences. As the granddaughter of a minister, things I heard, read and discussed for much of my life were woven into the fabric of this tale. Angels, Arch-angels, celestial beings, wars in Heaven – It was amazing!
My one issue with the book – the ending left my mind wide open. Still not sure if that’s a good thing or not, but I’m positive I would love to see this continued and hope it’s soon!
I highly recommend this book! Kudos to Casse Narome!
