    2. 1.5 starsI don t even know what to say about this.The story was sort of confusing, mainly because Siders aren t a mythological creature anyone is familiar withke say, a vampire, werewolf, angel, or fairy You know, something most people have heard of So, with that in mind, I would think you d get a bit in depth explanation of this Sider thing.But you don t Also, it didn t help that I didn t care for any of the characters Eden just wasn t the kind of girl that I d like to hang out and have a beer [...]

    4. My review can also be found on my blog Collections.2.5 starsClose to evening on a summer day, Eden sits on the sand at the beach, wondering why her family and friends have been ignoring her for weeks No one seems to care about her any, and it s as if she doesn t even exist to them So, lately, she s been thinking about suicide But as she s sitting there, contemplating what to do, she is approached by two strangers Eden is immediately drawn to one of them, the one who calls himself Az And because [...]

    5. Yeah Wow And not really in a good way Let s do this objectively This book is meant for people who do not question logic or the lack of it or require any sort of definite character depth in a book There is just so much wtf ery that I had to stop reading, put the book down and just breathe for a moment I wouldn t have completed this but I won the book and felt compelled to finish it as a celebration of my win Yeah Anyway The book Right.The doozy and not really a spoiler since you know, it s the pr [...]

    7. Full disclosure I didn t finish this book I didn t even get that far in But I m a firm believer that life s too short to read bad books A Touch Mortal hit one of my biggest peeves about YA paranormal romance, and it hit it really quickly.It starts out with what could be an interesting premise teenage Eden is somehow slipping from the minds of everyone around her, and doesn t know why her friends and family are ignoring her She s depressed about this and contemplating suicide when she meets two y [...]

    8. First of all, let me say this book is not a light or quick read It is 418 pages in ARC format It is also has a romance with a darkness to it that is not what you would normally see in a normal young adult romance The first half of this book was very difficult for me to get through It was confusing with talk of Touch, Upstairs, Downstairs, The Bound, The Fallen and everything in between Afterlife is not what Eden thought it would be She thought heaven with angels, or hell with demons What she did [...]

    9. By far the best angel book I ve read Awesome pacing, fabulous details, believable characters and witty dialogue are just a few of the strengths of Leah Clifford s debut I couldn t put it down, and when I had to, I found myself looking for excuses to pick it up again as soon as possible.

    10. I am not sure how I managed to finish this one I think I felt a bit guilty because I won it in a contest and I sort of did want to see what happened, so I forced myself to finish But wow, this one was rough It jumps ALL over the place in no linear fashion, and it includes all these details, randomly dumped in the middle of other scenes I still don t understand what Siders are and what exactly Touch is It doesn t make any sense to me at all Then there s also the fact that we re supposed to feel t [...]

    11. Rapt with deeper meaning and moments, filled with strong characters, and an overall fantastic story, A Touch Mortal is a stunning debut Though focused mainly on Eden, the third person perspective is beautifully written and gives strong insight into several other characters and forging strong connections to the reader with each There is an overall large cast of characters, but they are all given bold personalities and serve strong purposes in the story While a few transitions are shaky and confus [...]

    12. A TOUCH MORTAL is quite unlike any other angel book I ve read In fact, just calling it an angel book is selling it short It s definitely geared towards an older audience themes of life and death take a dark twist it almost reminds me of The Crow or a junior league Queen of the Damned Or really, any of the Anne Rice Vampire Chronicles ATM starts off with the heroine, Eden, contemplating the bleakness of her existence on the Jersey shore A life that had started spiraling wildly has suddenly turned [...]

    13. A messy, disjointed, disaster of a book Gives a bad name to YA fic.In the first two pages of A TOUCH MORTAL, Eden our troubled, suicidal protagonist meets Gabriel and Az on the beach Az and Eden have dinner together, then say goodnight without a kiss A few pages later, we ve skipped forward two weeks and find that Eden, Gabe and Az are now BFFs Not only that, but Eden and Az are in loveul crushing, eternal, die for each other love.Um, OK.Clifford suffers from the fatal author flaw of telling the [...]

    14. 5 Things I Loved About A TOUCH MORTAL by Leah Clifford1 MOMENTUM In YA paranormal, it s really easy for a story to lose momentum when the author takes a long time to build the world and its internal mythology Leah Clifford takes a different approach rather than slowly turning up the heat, she throws the reader along with Eden right into a full boil Leah keeps the heat on high throughout the book by continually ratcheting up the tension, especially by introducing characters like2 LUKE What can I [...]

    16. I was really unsure about what rating I would give this book and, even now, I m not sure if I went too high In the end I gave it a 3 because A Touch Mortal had its fair share of problems but I wanted to finish reading it.The story opens with Eden on the beach, contemplating suicide, when she meets Az and Gabe In between the second and third chapter, completely off screen, Az and Eden fall in love an all encompassing love that took all of a week to develop But Gabe, who also became Eden s best fr [...]

    18. Damn, I am so sick of this insta love crap I m serious One day and they re in the whole ima ready to die for you shit No freaking thanks My tolerance for this is way below zero Why would a fallen angel even care about a mortal person anyway And don t give me that love at first sight shizz because there is no justification for his feelings whatsoever in this book.I don t have the heart to continue and from what I ve seen, it doesn t get any better so I m going to stick by my original thoughts Yep [...]

    19. So, this is what it feels like when Heaven leaves you Eden has no path She is meant to be forgotten, meant to kill herself And she might have done that exactly if Az hadn t come along He makes Eden smile, feel needed and special But Az isn t as human as he seems, an angel cast out of Heaven He struggles to Fall everyday and suddenly Eden makes it worth it But not everyone wants them to be happy The only way to save Eden is to have her embrace her destiny, to suicide It doesn t take time to reali [...]

    21. Reviewed by urbanfantasyinvestigations.bloI gave it a 2.5 5 starsI had a hard time getting into A TOUCH MORTAL I found myself wanting to put it down or skip sections throughout most of the book It was a bit confusing at times and there are a lot of names to keep track of that are kinda just thrown into it without enough explanation I enjoyed the main characters personalities and the storyline was unique There is a lot of action towards the end which was nice, but the first half of the book seame [...]

    24. doesn t allow it, but I gave this my 6 star rating.Mortals have a path Their lives have a set direction that they follow But there are those who don t The pathless The Siders They begin to fade from the minds of everyone they ve known and when they choose to end their existence they don t simply die.Instead of death, they are fated to wander the earth carrying Touch Forced to release it before the pain becomes too much to handle Passing it to mortals who may end their lives because of its effect [...]

    25. I met Leah Clifford in Michigan for the release of Angelfire She introduced herself and handed me a stack of signed bookmarks and stickers for my swag bin which I promptly dropped all over the floor Because I Am Awesome A few weeks later I read her debut novel, A Touch Mortal I m currently sitting here trying to tell you about this book, and the only thing I can say is I m pretty sure I loved it, but you ll have to ask me again in six months, because I think it will take me that long to process [...]

    27. More reviews can be found at my new blog Nomalicious ReadsA Touch Mortal was one of those rare jewels you happen to find amongst a bunch of rocks for me anyway It was simply amazing, Leah Clifford writes a fantastic world that sucks you in and keeps you glued to your seat, eagerly turning the pages to find out what happens next This was another book that I was skeptical about when I heard about it, but what grabbed my attention, and then sold the book for me, was when I happened to stumble upon [...]

    28. I am very wary of angel books I loved the Halo trilogy, but most angel books are just basically the same some angel comes down to earth, falls in love with a mortal, upstairs throws a hissy fit and says he ll become a fallen angel if he doesn t ditch the human, but he won t That s basically the setup for EVERY god dang angel book But A Touch Mortal looked different and I was interested to see the mythology surrounding what happened in the afterlife for someone who did suicide And boy, am I glad [...]

    29. A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford was a book that has inherited very mixed views from me, I certainly see this book being divisive for reviewers Overall I found the book to be enjoyable and while some did not like Eden s character, I warmed up to her throughout the book In the beginning, I won t lie, she frustrated me because I did not fully understand how her character became suicidal and just flip to being happy I was waiting for the writer to say that Eden was just being an over angsty teen, bu [...]

    30. Totally insane, but in a good way.Suicide This book pretty much starts with a suicide Which is weird, because normally I would be really appalled in that sort of situation, but the circumstances were on the bizarre side It s like it was supposed to happen And spoiler alert Eden doesn t really die Perhaps that s why I was so nonchalant about the whole thing But I just wanted to throw that out there, because I know that may be a deal breaker for some people This is on the darker side of the YA spe [...]
