Doc The Life and Death Parade

The Life and Death Parade Ver increasingly suspects Roan knows about Nikki than he's letting on And when they finally locate the Life and Death Parade and the psychic who made that fateful prophecy to Nikki Kitty uncovers a secret about Roan that changes everythingFrom rising star Eliza Wass comes a sophisticated mesmerizing meditation on the depths of grief and the magic of faith After all it only works if you believe i Full review posted at Among the Authors Two years ago I discovered Eliza Wass through her debut YA novel The Cresswell Plot While the book didn’t necessarily hit one out of the park for me its author did and I became somewhat entranced by Eliza and her story She grew up in a strict religious community and didn’t meet anyone outside of that religion until she interned at Disney at the age of 22 She talks about that part of her background in this article from the Guardian and it’s clear where her inspiration for The Cresswell Plot here titled In the Dark In the Woods came from Her bio claims “she has thousands of friends all of whom either arrive inside dust jackets or post obsessively on Twitter” and following her on Twitter gave me a deeper look into her writing her whimsical personality and her devotion to her late husband Alan Wass of Alan Wass and the TourniuetSo when I spotted the beautiful cover of The Life and Death Parade while I was at PLA I had to snatch it up It became one of my first must read ARCs in a massive book haul and it delivered the type of hauntingly eerie story that I’ve come to expect from Eliza WassWhat I LikedEliza Wass has a beautiful and delicate way of tackling topics like death and grief She has a way with words particularly her rich imagery that paints her settings I longed to know about the characters Nikki especially because he has such a fun persona that steals every sceneAt the beginning of each chapter are featured lines from the author’s late husband which help to set the tragic tone as Kitty searches for answers to what happened to her boyfriend and how the psychic’s prediction of his death came to pass A variety of different relationships are explored each shedding a little light on how each character grieves and I was glad that the romantic elements weren’t your typical sugar coated YA romance tropes The loss of Nikki haunts the entire story and in turn the reader aches along with each of the characters in the familyIt’s a uick enjoyable read that you can finish in just a few short hours but it can be said that the story will end well before you want it to What I Didn’t LikeAbout halfway through I started feeling like I was missing something Specifically I felt as if this book had been over edited and scenes that would have helped me to better connect with the characters and their stories had been cut Looking back at my review of The Cresswell Plot I wasn’t surprised to see that I’d felt similarly about that title The Life and Death Parade is a very short uick read but the fast pacing will have you wishing there were slower moments to help the story build I’m beginning to wonder if this is just Wass’s writing style or if she has an editor that prefers it this way Either way I wish we got to know the characters a little bit better because they seem so uirky uniue and mysterious Overall RatingI was torn on how to rate this book but I ultimately decided on 355 stars The premise has so much potential and the cast of characters were eccentric and wonderful but the plot falls victim to an overly fast pace I still have so many uestions and things that I want to know which makes me wish there were at least another fifty pages or so to tell the full story Eliza Wass continues to be an author to watch for me and I look forward to seeing what comes next from her
