Spotlight: Face of Death by Kelly Hashway

Book three in Kelly Hashway's Touch of Death series is now. Kelly is a fellow member of Darkly Delicious YA and I'm absolutely thrilled to spotlight her books.

Coming January 2014

Having fallen at the hands of Hades, Jodi's enduring torture like she never imagined. Worse, she has to watch her Ophi friends suffer along with her--the punishment doled out by the very people she'd sentenced to life in Tartarus. Hell. This is one reunion Jodi hoped would never happen, but now she must find a way to free them all.

Except the underworld is nearly impossible to escape.

Jodi's one chance may rest in raising the human soul she killed when she drank Medusa's blood.

But splitting her human soul from her Ophi soul means living a double life: One as an Ophi experiencing unspeakable torture and the other as the human she could have been if she never came into her powers. With her two worlds colliding, Jodi will have to make the toughest decision she's faced yet.

Kelly has been kind enough to share a couple of teasers with us. Enjoy!

That was the beauty of my plan. I wasn't going to try to get out of the underworld alive. I was going to try to raise my own soul. My human soul. The one I'd killed. I was going to force that soul into the body of another dead person.

I was going to become one of the living dead—and hopefully not the zombie kind. 

Oh! I love that excerpt. And the next one, because there's a three-headed dog from Hell.

"Can you call Hades?" I asked Cerberus, keeping my voice as steady and non-threatening as possible. "Call your master here. Tell him I need to talk to him."

"Our fearless leader, everyone," Lexi said. "Talking to a three-headed dog from Hell. We're all screwed. 

I love Lexi's reply, and I can't wait to read the book!
