This is the thrilling sequel to "The Body Finder" by Kimberly Derting. I was just as excited reading this book as the first one. "Desires of the Dead" was extremely fast-paced and action packed. I enjoyed reading about Violet and Jay's growing relationship, even after events threaten to pull them apart. For those who love the paranormal, fans of Kelly Armstrong and anyone who enjoys a book full of excitement and intrigue, "Desires of the Dead" is a must read.
