Along the River Styx- Ashley Cooley

From the Back of the Book
Sixteen year old Delphi Andrews lives by one rule: no physical contact with mortals, or they’ll die.

But when Delphi makes the mistake of giving into desires and breaks the rule; Dale Henrys falls down dead. As if being a demigod and having Death for a father isn’t complicated enough, Delphi is forced to exist in the mortal world. It’s too bad her existence leaves a trail of bodies...

Dodging revenge seeking Cheerleaders, cowering Football players, and hallways full of whispers Delphi never expected to stumble upon the most unlikely group of friends and to be welcomed into their ranks. They don’t understand her “no-touch policy” but they don’t ask questions either. For once Normalcy seems to be within her grasp, until Dale makes his grand reappearance as a….Reaper? With a taste for the River Styx. 

Be warned if you read this book you will fall in love with the daughter of death, all it takes is one touch, one page and you've been pulled into a world full of Greek myth set in a modern day world. Grabbed Right away by the main character Delphi, you can feel her struggles to live in the mortal world. If you thought getting up early for high school was bad, try being a demi- god of death. Delphi can't touch anybody or she kills them, and she still has to wake up early like everybody else. I loved that as the plot got darker and more intense Delphi's struggles begin to not only include her fearing her own touch will kill somebody, but being stalked by a reaper who has it out for her and a mortal that wants to go out with her.

This book is a great read for those looking for a book to sink into and get lost in, it is jarring to come back to reality once you have started this book, it really pulls you into Delphi's world and her life. Romance, fantasy, gods, lots of boys, death, this book has it all!

And so with all this being said I rate this book from 1, I couldn't finish it to 10, unputdownable, a absolute deathly 10.

This book has been released today, this is a must buy! please support self- published authors and do not download and please do not share copies of books.
