#BookReview: Black Bird of the Gallows by @megkassel @EntangledTeen #NetGalley




About the Book: A simple but forgotten truth: Where harbingers of death appear, the morgues will soon be full.

Angie Dovage can tell there’s more to Reece Fernandez than just the tall, brooding athlete who has her classmates swooning, but she can’t imagine his presence signals a tragedy that will devastate her small town. When something supernatural tries to attack her, Angie is thrown into a battle between good and evil she never saw coming. Right in the center of it is Reece—and he’s not human.

What’s more, she knows something most don’t. That the secrets her town holds could kill them all. But that’s only half as dangerous as falling in love with a harbinger of death.

Notes and Opinions:  Well this one started off with a bang and kept that bang until the romance went from slow burn which was great to speedy lets get it on.  That was a little werid if you ask me but that was my only issue with this book.  I wished the story along with the romance would have kept pace thoughout and not jumped the gun halfway through.  Other than that this story was very good and well paced.  The characters were all well formed and complex and the story itself was very good.  I loved what and how the author brought about the paranormal aspects of the title and I really wished this was a series as I would love to have more!  The descprtions were amazing and really made you see what was going on as well as feel all of the emotions.  

“If you had asked me a few weeks ago, I’d have said magic is impossible. Irrational. Just considering its existence in this world is insane. But I saw bees crawl out of a man’s mouth. I saw him change faces like pages of a book.”

This is one fantasy/paranormal title that I wont soon forget and will really need to get a finsihed copy of soon!  If your looking for a new title to read check this one out! 

Go Into This One Knowing:  Twists, Feels, Very Twlightly (in a good way)
