Love or Death? A simple question really. The choice seems obvious. But. What if you never knew love, what if your life was spent just trying to survive? What if you knew your fate before you were fully grown?

And then you died.

And you were given another chance. A better chance.

This new life depended upon one thing: your job. And so you agreed. You thought it would be simple. You thought it would be cut and dry.

It never is.

And now you are left holding the fate of someone else in the palm of your hand and you have to make the ultimate choice.

Love or Death?

Oh man this story is a tearjerker but in a good way, it has a lot of sad bits that will really get you rooting for the lead character. Recalled is very original and will keep you guessing on what the lead will do next, and have the readers at the edge of their seats until the last page.

Recalled follows Dex, well that’s the name he is given by his new employer after he was recently killed. You see Dex was a young man who was living on the streets and one day saves a girl from being hit by a bus, thus taking her place. Dex is giving a chance at a new life and a job that he thought he’d be able to do…little did he know his target and the costs if he didn’t do his job right.

Dex is a complex character, the readers don’t know much about who he really is before he was killed but we get the jest. He had a tough life and I felt being given this second chance was something he deserved. But not the risks, I was rooting for something good to happen to him. He had made some bad decisions but he redeems himself a lot. I loved watching him change and understand that he has a choice in his actions. He becomes a lovable character, who in the end really just wants to live again.

Piper is a girl with the gift of visions; she can see things in the future. She doesn’t see Dex coming into her life. She is wary around him after she has a vision of the man who saved her when she touches him. Her life is pretty much turned upside down once she meets him and slowly discovers the undeniable chemistry between each other. I also liked the addition of her best friend who knows about her visions; she added humor to an intense and darker storyline.

Overall this story will pull at your heart, you’ll root for Dex and hope that he can find a way to get out of this mess his in. As well as hope that Piper will be the one to help him. I loved watching the characters fight the demons inside their heads and each moment together was sweet and romantic when they aren’t in a dangerous situation. My only issue was with Pipers decision to trust so easily and I can understand her curiosity but she really put herself in danger. My favorite tidbit was that the Grimm Ripper has escorts for those who die, but he’s more of a villain than anything. I’m very curious to see whom the next death escort is and what will happen next for Dex and Piper.

This is a young adult novel that keeps on surprising you and be prepared for some emotional highs and lows. Fans of Brodi Ashtons Everneath series and Cythia Hands Unearthly series will enjoy Recalled by Cambria Hebert.
