Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things by Martina McAtee

(From My Latest Reading List in November 2018)

About the book

Seventeen-year-old Ember Lonergan has made an art of isolating herself. She prefers the dead. She spends her days skipping school in old cemeteries and her nights hiding from her alcoholic father at the funeral home where she works. When her own father dies, Ember learns her whole life is a lie.

Mace is a monster, a soulless assassin tasked with a single purpose: follow Ember. He only has two rules. Do not interact with her. Do not kill her. Simply watch and report. But Mace has never been good at following orders, and Ember is a temptation he simply can’t resist.

Whisked away to a small Florida town, Ember must learn to embrace a family she’s never known, a supernatural world she never knew existed, and a power so vast it just might kill her. All that stands between Ember and destruction is that beautiful dangerous boy from the cemetery.

Can she learn to trust him before it’s too late?

My thoughts

This was a good book with many different elements that I liked. It didn’t have the usual storyline and wolf pack in it which was really awesome. The way the characters all come together to weave this story is well done. I will definitely want to read the other books in the series.

I gave this book a 3/5 star rating.

Rating: 3 out of 5.
