Surrounded by violence and hatred, I was born with a target on my back.
The monsters sought after me, slowly tainting my soul.
A person can only withstand so much before they snap.
I’m a grenade and they pulled the pin.
Tick, tock; the clock’s running out.

We all come into this world, sentenced to death.
And when he calls, we have to answer.

As for me, I’ll be making the calls.
I am Death.

ARC provided for an unbiased review.

Life had never been easy for Curtis (Curt) Matthews since the day he was born. He never knew what normal was amidst the chaos he was thrown into. But nothing else mattered when a single moment changed the course of his life.

Let me start by saying this book was not what I expected it to be. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing because it turned out to be more.

My skin wasn’t as thick anymore and my armor was slipping, but I tried to block out the whispering voices. As hard as I tried, they were always there, lingering in the background.

I won’t say much about the story itself, but this book made me so angry and sad with the injustice in life. I loved how the characters invoked my emotions and blurred the line of societal judgment. I enjoyed the overall storyline, but I have to say a certain part of the ending was unnecessary because I felt it took away the gravity of the situation.

You look at me and see a monster, but what I am is a survivor.

Death is a story of defining monstrosity. It would appeal to readers who like to delve in a darker side of humanity.

Final Verdict:

This review is also available on Goodreads.
