Review: Beautiful Dead, Book 1 - Jonas by Eden Maguire

* I have done these reviews/interviews on my other blog, but I will still post them here. *

This post is from March 25, 2010.

I was a little hesitant when I first started reading Beautiful Dead because I thought it would be like every other tragic romance novel with supernatural creatures. I was pleasantly surprised when I first started reading. I was sucked into the book after the first page, no joke. I couldn't put the book down! I was always wondering what was going to happen on the next page or the next chapter. Things got exciting and troublesome and I was in a whirlwind of events and emotions. Darina, a girl whose boyfriend, Phoenix, who died in a mysterious murder, goes wandering around grief stricken. She comes across and old barn and when she goes to investigate said barn, Darina spots the dead but somehow alive Phoenix. Darina must help Phoenix and the rest of the Beautiful Dead to give Jonas peace. She must find out who killed Jonas and why. I would definitely give Beautiful Dead a five out of five rating. I absolutely loved the book and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good romance/mystery novel.
