Tainted by Julie Kenner
November 19, 2009 - Amy Phelps
USA Today bestselling author Julie Kenner introduces a new character caught between the forces of good and evil in "Tainted."
Lily Carlyle was dead. Having tracked down the man that brutally attacked her sister, she shot him, only to have him stab and murder her. And just has Lily heads toward the light, she is given a second chance.
Lily wakes up in a new body, that of Alice Purdue, and with a teacher at her side. Clarence says that she is to be an assassin for the good side, killing off those working for the forces of darkness and will help prevent an apocalpse.
In the midst of one of her fights, she meets the handsome Deacon, and the two are immediately distrustful of each other. Not only is Lily having trouble blending in as Alice and fighting the forces of evil, but now she finds out that Deacon is working for the other side. As Lily gets closer to the apocalypse and her chance at shutting the Ninth Gate, she makes a terrible discovery that turns her world upside down.
This is an interesting beginning to a new series from Kenner. The best part of this book was the twist ending that I really didn't see coming.
"Tainted" is published by Ace. It is $7.99 and 302 pages long. Look for the next book, "Torn" coming soon.
