Then him falling in love. yeah that'll be so much better. EDITRELATIONSHIP. It has always been the focus of this series even if I wanted this to be more of a crime fictional story it always ends up there. I was really expecting so much of this last intallment but was disappointed after reading it. The epilogue didn't even [...]
ahahaha remember when we thought The Last Echo would be the last book because of the title.The title.titleead silence[Update May 12, 2014]Does this mean we're getting a spin-off series? Cause we were left hanging a little bit.
4.5 starsDead Silence is the latest installment in the Body Finder series and my favorite book since the first one. Violet has been trying to deal with the aftermath of the kidnapping and what she had to do to survive. She is haunted by an ever-present music-box tune that she hears in her head. The imprint that she can't escape from. Still, she goes on and tries to find normal in her life, but when two new students show up at White River high school, Violet is constantly reminded that she is dif [...]
OH MY GOD!It has a title now! It didn't even have a title this morning! Cool!EDIT: I actually just bounced around my house a little because I was so happy this had a title. Yes, bounced. Absolutely no exaggeration there. ANOTHER Edit:Apparently, this comes out on my mom's birthday. I might be ditching her for the bookstore. (Sorry, Mom.)
2.5 stars - SpoilersMeh, not bad. I sort of enjoyed Dead Silence but I was also bored and annoyed by it — particularly the plot, the heroine, the love triangle and the repetitiveness. The writing, secondary characters and pacing were decent enough.The storyline wasn't gripping. It was the same old, same old:1. Violet finds a dead body or two using her powers (she can sense 'Echoes' — every murderer and murdered person has their own unique smell, sound or visual echo).2. Violet then gets emot [...]
WOWKimberly Derting can definitely wield an amazing story. Sometimes when you read sequels.ey fall short of the first bookTHIS IS NOT THE CASE!!! Each of Kimberly's Body Finder book are equally amazing!! Needless to say I was hoping and praying I received this ARC because I have been obsessed with this series from DAY ONE!!Violet is one of my all-time favorite characters. She faces death on a daily basis and is still so strong and determined. She wants to use her "gift" to help others even thoug [...]
The books in this series have been pretty formulaic. Each contains Violet's struggles with her power, with a main murder mystery plot; they've been good, but after awhile they do get generic. That hasn't stopped me from reading them, however.The murder subplot has been the weakest part in all of these books, and it is no different here. If anything, it's worse. The mystery is weak, the author can barely make the connection to Violet's life, and it feels more and more of a suspension of disbelief [...]
I really enjoyed the previous books to the Body Finder series so I'm pretty certain I'm gonna love this one. Am I the only one who's kinda hoping Violet and Rafe get together? I mean, don't get me wrong. I LOVE Violet and Jay together - their chemistry is pretty amazing - and sometimes Rafe annoys the hell out of me but I think they'd be good together. Obviously, Violet's softening Rafe so that's good. If they don't get together that's okay -it's not gonna be a big heartbreak. Rafe still seems k [...]
31/1/13 Update:It's 2013! Few more Weeeeeks! It's just days after my birthday! Coooool! 26/12/12 Update:News Flash! There's a cover and a plot! Great.

Am I the only one who cant wait till April 16 ? OH GOSH ! words can not express on how much I LOVE THIS BOOK <3 and I was devastated when I finished reading The Last Echo, I was SO happy to find out that there Is another one!!! WOOP WOOP <3
I have yet to let it sink in that this is the last of the series *sobs* I get to be part of the blog tour, so full review and blog stop will be up April 3! **********updated review***************It’s finally senior year for Violet, and the last thing she’s thinking about is school. The recent event of her kidnapping resulted in Violet developing her own imprint that haunts her every minute. And it’s sure not helping her mental health when a fellow classmate and friend is being accused of m [...]
its always been one of my favourite series and i am soooo sad that its now ended. I love reading about these characters so reading this was bittersweet. Each time round, we get a cool mystery and this time round its about a family that has been brutally slaughtered. This made me think of loads of horror films that i have seen and i love how great Kimberly Derting is at creating creepy atmospheres. The murders gave me the chills and and i really enjoyed reading about the mystery.Jay is the love o [...]
Only downfall of this series is how quickly the books wrap themselves up. Once they know the killer it's boom, bam, done Also, I'm mad because I want to read book #5 and figure out the secret darnit!
This was a good ending to the series. Although, I will agree with others that the ending was left open. So hopefully the author plans to write more at some time. It was nice that Violet got to read her grandma's journals. She got to see how it was for her and her gift. Thankfully Violet has found a man that will accept her and her gift. I'm glad that it was Jay. I really liked him. He was always there for her when she was in trouble.
This was a nice conclusion to the series! I recommend it to everyone!
I LOVE THE COVER! RED IS MY FAVORITE COLOR!*RUNNING AROUND LIVING ROOM, SCREAMING LIKE A BANSHEE GONE WILD* XD
IS THIS GONNA BE THE LAST BOOK!!?!?!?!?? I DON'T WANT IT TO END! Just finished The Last Echo, AMAZING! Can't wait for this book to come out!
Another fantastic book in The Body Finder series! This series rocks! I never seem to tire of them. At a Glance:Kimberly Derting's The Body Finder Series has been, and continues to be, one of the most entertaining series I've ever read. Just like in the books before this, Dead Silence is thrilling, suspenseful, nerve-racking, and, quite-frankly, disturbing. But in the best possible way. Cover:I do like the covers. I'm not sure that they really tell what the story is about, but they are pretty and [...]
Spoiler free for the full series.In this series Kimberly Derting has created something very different. Violet has a very unique ability and through the books it has come in very handy while still putting her in intense danger. There have been some twists and turns along the way as she learns more about it and things in her life change. But one thing there always is is a killer. And Kimberly Derting has cleverly inserted his/her POV in interspersed chapters throughout the novel. This not only giv [...]
To be honest, I’m kind of hard to decide how many stars I will give to this book. I feel the plot become repetitive to previous books. But it also has different things from its prequel that I liked.I liked the description of the murdered, it was gruesome but it isn't as creepy asThe Last Echo , which I think is the creepiest among the series so far. I also found the bad guys' names already revealed in half of the story while in first three books a little bit before the end of the story. It did [...]
Originally posted to The Society's BookshelfOH MY GAH! This series is tearing me apart. In case you haven't noticed from other reviews, I have cover issues. I know, I know- the whole "don't judge a book by it's cover" deal. But there are SO many books that I want to read, and I really count on the cover to pull me in. Long story short, I'm a very late reader to this series. I read the Body Finder about two months ago, and breezed through all 4 books within a week and a half.First, I love that so [...]
(Source: I own a copy of this book.)This is book 4 in the body finder series.Violet is now coming to terms with her own imprint, and it hasn’t been easy. The dead still want to be found though, and this time Violet finds a family of 3 all murdered. But where is the missing member of the family? And why does one of them not have an echo?Who killed the family and why? Why doesn’t one of them have an echo? And can Violet learn to live with her own imprint?This was a bit of an odd end to the ser [...]
Yet another series comes to an end. This one, however, I'm not so sure, given how open the end was. When I finished it, I did not have the feeling that the series was over. If it's not over, I don't know if I'll keep reading it. The first book was pretty good, with an intriguing premise. However, the structure of the books has not changed: each book has a different killer, who is caught at the end thanks to Violet. As for a plot arc, I didn't feel it was developed enough, as it only became clear [...]
First let me say that I write this review with tears in my eyes because I so did not want this series to end. I really enjoyed this series from the very beginning and I could not put the books down when I bought them. Causing me to stay up way past my bed time and be grumpy in the morning when I went to work. Kim has done a FABULOUS job with this series and I need more series from her.Violet what can I say about my girl Violet Lord she has coma a long way and she never ceases to amaze me when it [...]
Jay -“You do it, when you think no one’s listening. Thing is, I always listen, Vi.”Jay remains sweet but boring (he does kick someone's ass though!). Rafe remains dark and haunting. I have always preferred Rafe but because it's obvious that Violet will end up with Jay I deliberately categorise Rafe and Violet's chemistry as “supernatural going-ons”. If I didn't, I wouldn't be able to read this book. This is how I cope. But then Rafe had to go and DO SOMETHING that made me fall complete [...]

I rushed through this one because I was on a tight schedule, but I found it easy to read, even if it wasn't as interesting as the previous three. I haven't seen a character as confused as Violet in a long while. She can't ever seem to make up her mind. And, what I hate more than anything else, is uncertainty in a character. The protagonistmustbelieve in something and stick to it. I can't relate to a character who's too mercurial.Besides that, the plot was interesting enough. It was even a little [...]
