Summary from Goodreads:
The missing dead call to Violet. They want to be found.
Violet can sense the echoes of those who've been murdered—and the matching imprint that clings to their killers. Only those closest to her know what she is capable of, but when she discovers the body of a young boy she also draws the attention of the FBI, threatening her entire way of life.

As Violet works to keep her morbid ability a secret, she unwittingly becomes the object of a dangerous obsession. Normally she'd turn to her best friend, Jay, except now that they are officially a couple, the rules of their relationship seem to have changed. And with Jay spending more and more time with his new friend Mike, Violet is left with too much time on her hands as she wonders where things went wrong. But when she fills the void by digging into Mike's tragic family history, she stumbles upon a dark truth that could put everyone in danger.

My Review:

The first book in this series, The Body Finder, was spectacular. It was an entirely new story and I had never heard anything like it before. The second book, however, didn't wow me as much as the first.

It started off a little slow to me, but every so often, there was something mysterious that happened, making me get goosebumps. There were a lot of morbid things that happened in this book, which made it seem a bit more indie in parts to me. This wasn't necessarily a good thing or a bad thing, it just was.

The manner in which Violet heard the echoes was really creatively done and I liked that. Her relationship with Jay grew to a point that was really heartwarming to read. Jay is one of those boyfriends who is really protective and is worried about how Violet will protect herself. Personally, I think he should have kept her on less of a leash. But, then again, his protectiveness proved to be extremely important at the end.

Desires of the Dead certainly showed a lot of promise for the next book though, and I have a feeling that it will be better than any of the others. So far it's just been two different stories kind of revolving around a killer with some other stuff mixed in. The plot for the next book , The Last Echo looks to be a lot more personal and suspenseful and I am looking forward to it.
