Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway: Dead Silence (Kimberly Derting)

So I am BEYOND thrilled to be able to be a part of this fabulous blog tour!! Thank you Candace at Candace's Book Blog for hosting this incredible tour!  The Body Finder series is one of my most favorite series ever! I love everything about it from the creepy story, to the characters, to the chemistry between Jay and Violet. If you have not read this series then you must IMMEDIATELY get a copy of Body Finder and begin! It is incredible and you will LOVE Kimberly Derting's writing! Enjoy!

Violet thought she’d made peace with her unique ability to sense the echoes of the dead and the imprints that cling to their killers…that is until she acquired an imprint of her own. Forced to carry a reminder of the horrible events of her kidnapping, Violet is more determined than ever to lead a normal life. However, the people who run the special investigative team Violet works for have no intention of letting her go.When someone close to Violet becomes a suspect in a horrific murder, she finds herself pulled into a deadly hunt for a madman with an army of devoted followers. Violet has survived dangerous situations before, but she quickly discovers that protecting those closest to her is far more difficult than protecting herself.The Body Finder series has been praised as a “delectable blend of mystery and romance” (The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books), a “fast-paced, compelling read” (ALA Booklist), and as “imaginative, convincing, and successful suspense” (Kirkus Reviews). With a perfect blend of romance, intrigue, and suspense, Dead Silence continues this gripping series, delivering unexpected twists that will keep readers guessing until the very last page.

Hardcover, 336 pages
Expected publication: April 16th 2013 by HarperCollins

Pre-Order the book here:

Kimberly Derting is the author of the BODY FINDER series (HarperCollins) and THE PLEDGE trilogy (Simon & Schuster). She lives in the Pacific Northwest, the ideal place to write anything dark or creepy...a gloomy day can set the perfect mood. She lives with her husband and their three beautiful (and often mouthy) children who provide an endless source of inspiration.


WOW..Kimberly Derting can definitely wield an amazing story. Sometimes when you read sequels..they fall short of the first book..THIS 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 though she knows it could possibly cause her pain and suffering. She goes through so many trials and tribulations and still is an amazing heroine. 

Jay....What can I say about Jay! He is AWESOME!! He is everything a teenage girl could want in a boyfriend. He is handsome, funny, dependable, strong, and protective. I absolutely LOVE their relationship! Their interactions and romance is one of the main reasons I love this series! The description of their romance is so awe inspiring and wonderful. I feel as though I am living each moment with them...

The "cases" that Violet has to assist with in this book are filled with horror and pain. They are such deep stories and to the point of being graphic but this only adds to the story. This makes the story more real and vivid. 

I also loved how Kimberly wrote in more involvement with Violet's friends and family. This made the story more real and emotional. The introduction of her grandmother and her story just made me yearn for more. I cant wait to find out where Kimberly takes this story... I just completely loved this book in the series. Even though the first book has a strong place in my favorites list..This one goes right up there with it. I turned pages late into the night and could not put this book down. I love every aspect of this book and Kimberly's writing. She is truly a genius in the young adult category and I plan on reading each and every book she writes. 

So needless to say I definitely recommend this book!! 5 Stars!--If I could give more I WOULD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. YAY! I'm so glad you loved it! I have been telling everyone that I *really* want her to write a spin off series with Rafe as the MC. I think that would be great!
    Thanks so much for hosting a tour stop and sharing your thoughts!

  2. I agree that Jay is a perfect boyfriend--his and Violet's relationship is a great model for teens to look to for a healthy relationship. The best part is that Jay has always known Vi's secret (her gift) and totally accepts it and supports her. Yay, Kimberly Derting for putting this out there for young people!

  3. This is a new series for me, looks like I have a bit of reading to do to catch up. Thank you for the review.
