Review: A Black Deeper Than Death

A Black Deeper Than Death (Tenebrous Chronicles/ Miki Radicci Book 1) - M.E. Purfield

I have read another book by this author and really liked the character Miki. She seemed to have some type of mystery surrounding her. In this book A Black Deeper Than Death which by the way is free on Amazon and we get to learn who Miki is and we learn a bit about her curse that has plagued her family. 

You see Miki is a sixteen year old artist but she drinks like a lot, the curse she has is being able to feel what others feel. So someone hurts their hand and she is near well she will feel it too kind of freaky especially when she gets bruises and everything else on her body from this curse and she can not explain it to others. She drinks to dull her ability but does it really work? 

When she ends up seeing a murder happen which has never happened before to her this opens so much more than just the normal for her. We see Miki try to become a "hero" which ends up putting her in a tough situation. I have to say when we find out who the killer really was I was like wow didn't even think of this person. There wasn't really any clues for us to follow so that was good. 

I do think the author overused the whole "fake" id thing, I mean we know she has one but to be told more than once even when it different scenarios is too much. 

I do plan on reading book two in this series as I can see Miki being a character that I will remember. I want to see what else she has in store for us especially with her ability. 

The pace was steady, the mystery surrounding the murder/s was good, the characters were likable all in all a good read.
