In a way, this book felt like a longer, more action-packed TAC ad. There's a clear message here - don't use your mobile phone while driving. That message was right on the verge of being preachy, but it's woven into the fabric of a story with a strong narrative structure, likeable lead characters in Craig and Brianna, and with good use of the paranormal. It's an engaging story with a strong hook to lead into the next book. A recommended read.

Working as a psychic sometimes myself, I was excited to read this book and I wasn't disappointed. There was plenty of Spirit and paranormal action, and frankly, their personalities were just as deep and tangible as the living characters in the story. I especially liked Emily, the hero's spirit sidekick.

If you are into this stuff personally, there is a lot of realism between these pages, intermingled of course with enough poetic licence to make for a great read. But as well as the paranormal aspect, the story in general was incredibly action-packed and deep enough to be stimulating, but without bogging you down. Dead Cell was a fast-paced tale about the potential evils and inevitability of technology!

Another aspect I enjoyed was the nicely cooked, realistic sexual tension which existed between the two main characters, Craig and Brianna. Then when Emily was intermittently thrown into the mix, it became quite humorous and I found myself chuckling a lot!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
