When Chase dies tragically, Alex embraces her own mortality. What she didn’t expect was that she’d have to make a choice: forget the years of pain and suffering once and for all, or linger as a spirit and get another chance at life and love.

Alex doesn’t hesitate to choose; she’d follow Chase anywhere. But the spirit world is nothing like she expected, and Alex finds she's forced to fight for her life once more. For even in a world where secrets are buried much deeper than six feet under, a legacy can continue to haunt you—and in a place this dangerous, no one is resting in peace.(l

I received this book for free from The Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

First of all, the cover! Amazing, right!?

Of Breakable Things was a unique and very engaging story of the afterlife. There is a nice blend of mythology, paranormal and fantasy, and I loved the underlining meaning of the whole story. The mind is a powerful thing.

Rolland’s writing is very smooth, and the world building was very solid and fascinating. I was initially worried about how I would connect to Alex and her relationship with Chase, but there are flashbacks, showing us beautiful and heartwarming scenes throughout the book. We see how the connect, and how Alex’s relationship was strong with not only Chase, but the other brothers as well.

We get more than just Alex’s POV. It alternates between quite a few characters throughout the book, and while this is something that I don’t like, it was well done and very insightful to the story as a whole. There was a lot going on, and it was nice to see more a bigger picture than just the Alex bubble.

Alex, being frail and breakable in life, soars in the afterlife. She is very strong; able to do things that takes other spirits a long time to perfect. It was interesting trying to figure out why, and also why everyone was so nervous around her. She is loving and her connection to Chase and his brother’s was so sweet. I also admired her for not succumbing into the hate and cliques.

My Peeve – Since we get several different POV and the flashbacks, it took a little time to figure out what was going on. Other than that? Nope. 🙂

Overall –

I really liked it! Of Breakable Things is a fun, exciting and unique blend read that will appeal to many readers. I am hoping for a sequel, because there are a few unanswered things. I recommend it!

    I thought I had already logged in to the Rafflecopter, but it turns out the previous computer session still had my sister Sara (contestant816@gmail.com) logged in from yesterday. So if one of my tweets as @molliekatie wins but the Twitter handle doesn’t match my Rafflecopter username, here’s my sister Sara’s real tweet as @sportscgurl for today that should have copied and pasted in there:
