Death Wish (Ceruleans #1) by Megan Tayte

Published February 7, 2015 by Heaven Afire


The Ceruleans: mere mortals infused with power over life and death. Five books; one question: If the might of the heavens were in your hands, would you be sinner or saint? 

Seventeen-year-old Scarlett Blake is haunted by death. Her estranged sister has made the ultimate dramatic exit. Running away from school, joining a surfing fraternity, partying hard: that sounds like Sienna. Butsuicide? It makes no sense.

Following in her sister’s footsteps, Scarlett comes to the isolated cove of Twycombe, Devon, with grand plans to uncover the truth. Alone. But she hasn’t reckoned on meeting two boys who are determined to help her. Luke: the blue-eyed surfer who’ll see the real Scarlett, who’ll challenge her, who’ll save her. And Jude: the elusive drifter with a knack for turning up whenever Scarlett’s in need.

As Scarlett’s quest for the truth unravels, so too does her grip on reality as she’s always known it. Because there’s something strange going on in this little cove. A dead magpie circles the skies. A dead deer watches from the undergrowth. Hands glow with light. Warmth. Power.

What transpires is a summer of discovery. Of what it means to conquer fear. To fall in love. To choose life. To choose death.

To believe the impossible. 

My Thoughts…

This is the first book in a series that I am anxiously awaiting more from.    I started this novel with no clue what a Cerulean was.  I still am not 100% sure that I know exactly what they are but I am intrigued and needing to know more.  

The paranormal aspect of this book in interesting, yet the romance and the need-to-know is what kept me reading.    I loved the romance between Luke and Scarlett (sigh, I love that name).   It starts as a teenage like flirtation then heads into so much more.   There is an understanding, an acceptance, and a need to comfort between them.   

As Jude keeps appearing, I start wondering if there is more to him than meets the eye and what his connection to Scarlett is.  He seems to really care for Scarlett and understand her confusion while dealing with some of the happenings in her life.   As much as I like Luke, I was cheering for Jude to sweep in and win Scarlett’s heart.   I won’t give away what happens, but it didn’t happen the way I anticipated.    

I would categorize this book as a Young Adult Paranormal book, yet anyone who likes paranormal would enjoy it.    I cannot wait for more from Megan Tayte and this series.
