Review: Beautiful Decay by Sylvia Lewis

Ellie Miller has always needed her space. Literally. With a touch that rots whatever she encounters, Ellie must keep people at a distance for their own good. Not that her classmates are itching to be best friends with the "freak" of the high school.
So when newcomer Nate MacPherson makes it his mission to get close to her, Ellie has her suspicions. But when he identifies her as a viviomancer who can work the forces of life and reveals himself to be a necromancer who can manipulate death, Ellie finds herself trusting Nate and the romance that is blossoming between them. Unfortunately for the two, family secrets can kill, and they will need more than their abilities to keep a zombie mom and a conglomerate of evil-doing supernaturals under control.
After spending her life pushing everyone away, Ellie's realization of the full extent of her power and willingness to let people get close to her may be the only way to save the ones she loves.
 This is yet another unique take on necromancer & viviomancer powers. This author is highly imaginative for being able to put a new spin on this ever increasing type of storyline. I really like the way the main character evolves & matures throughout the entire story. She finally starts to realize the scope & extent of her powers. Thankfully, she has friends with their own powers to help in the fight against the villains. I blazed right through this book. It was a hard book to put down. The storyline is action packed with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing. I hope there will be a follow book to this one. I'd love to find out how everything progresses & what the final outcome will be. This book will capture your interest & imagination. Totally different from all the paranormal books that has preceded it. Hope you like it too. Happy Reading!!
