Can we take a moment to marvel at this cover and all the other covers of The Journals of Octavia Hollows! Not only are these covers stunning, but they give a little hint as to what the book holds in store for us. I cannot wait to see the next cover and read what adventure Octavia Hollows will go on next.
Caught Dead, The Journals of Octavia Hollows Book Three, is not like the other two books in this series. Stacey has wrote this book in a way that gives us more background on Octavia, but makes it to where she learns where she has come from and with this informations is being pushed to fight for her very existence. Octavia is developing as a character right in front of us and it's amazing to see where she will be lead to. The trials she is faced with would break the normal person but, Octavia is fierce and is putting herself on the line for others.
Stacey Rourke's way of writing and the rollercoaster of emotions she sets up in her stories keeps you on the edge of your seat, and you don't know what is going to happen at any given moment. Arroyo a Siren, our villain in this book, just gets under my skin. The vile things she does to humans, how she treated her "pet" and then how she treated Octavia and Bacon, I wanted to jump through the book myself and put a beating on her. Yes, I know it is just a book but Stacey is just that good at writing and makes you feel the emotion. Unfortunately Arroyo will be in the next book, and I hope that Octavia brings an unforgettable ass whopping to her. Caught Dead left with a cliffhanger, and has me in a book hangover, I don't see how I can start another book until I can read Drop Dead Gorgeous, May 30th cannot come soon enough.
