{November 15, 2012}   {Review and SIGNED Paperback Giveaway} Dead Seth by Tim O’Rourke (Kiera Hudson Series Two #4)

From Goodreads: Held hostage by Jack Seth, Kiera Hudson must not only find a way to escape, but save Potter and her father before she turns to stone. With Jack becoming ever more unstable and dangerous, Kiera soon realises the choice he is forcing her to make has far more terrifying consequences than she first believed.

As Jack’s past begins to unravel, Kiera finally understands what turned him into a serial killer, and how his disturbing past affects her future…


Wow!  This book left me speechless.  Here we have the infamous Jack Seth, evil beyond comparison, divulging his poignant and often times gut wrenching side of the story.  His is one of heartache, betrayal, and lies, all of which molded him into the convicted killer that he is so unashamed of being.  And though Kiera hated to admit it, and though I didn’t want to, either, his story made me really feel for him.  Though he’s been a terror to Kiera, Potter, Murphy, and the whole rest of the gang, there is actually a reason he turned out to be who he is today, and though he is a terrifying monster, his heart wasn’t always this way.

As I read this story, I was extremely excited because I believed I’d figured out O’Rourke’s plot prior to the big reveal.  But, O’Rourke always hits the reader with an exceptional bout of twists that leave them reeling, and that’s exactly what happened in this novel as well.  I should have known that the foreshadowing would only allow me to see a small piece of the puzzle, but I really thought I had it all figured out.  And, though I had the main gist correct, never, in a million years, did I see any of the other connections O’Rourke makes coming.  Truth be told, I was floored, once again. It amazes me just how intricate and perfect O’Rourke’s stories turn out to be, and I can’t fathom how he is able to keep surprising his readers with new information as the plot thickens, but it’s his gift, and I love him for it. Dead Seth is another amazing novel in the Kiera Hudson series and I highly suggest you pick up the series today.  You won’t be disappointed!  Five stars.
