Blog Tour: Stalked By Death (Touch of Death #2) by: Kelly Hashway (Character Guest Post and Giveaway)

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Stalked By Death by Kelly Hashway. This is such a fun series and I am so glad to be a part of the tour. For my stop I have a guest post from Alex and there is a giveaway too.

"Jodi knows that any slip-ups made by the Ophi--a special group of necromancers born under the 13th sign of the zodiac--will fall on her shoulders... and that Hades is just waiting for them to screw up so he can wipe out the Ophi line.

Unfortunately, Jodi has only convinced one Ophi to join her school: A hot guy named Chase who jeopardizes her relationship with Alex. Jodi loves Alex, but Chase can enhance her powers with just a touch—making her stronger than any Ophi has ever been.

Her mixed emotions send her powers surging out of control, and the dead start rising without her conscious summoning—exactly what Hades doesn't want! If she chooses Alex over Chase, she may lose the battle to Hades, leading the Ophi race to extinction. If she chooses Chase, she might be able to stop Hades for good… but lose everything else.

Jodi needs to figure things out fast--because death is stalking her at every turn."

A Typical Day in the Life of a Necromancer 
By Alex Montgomery 

I’m not sure you can anything the Ophi do typical, but I’ll give this a shot. You might think we spend all our time raising zombies, and well, you’d be mostly right. We raise a lot of corpses. But it’s not for fun. We’re training, trying to perfect our abilities, because let’s face it—an untrained necromancer is wicked dangerous, and not just to humans. (Though I’d warn all of you to steer clear of us unless you have a death wish or are looking to take a one-way trip to Hell.) We’re also dangerous to ourselves though. Think of the biggest enemy you’ve ever had. Now multiple that times a million and you have Hades. He wants us all dead. No, not just dead. He wants us in the Underworld where he can torture us and then strip us of our powers. Sound fun? Welcome to my life. 

So, yeah, we train a lot, which isn’t easy because most of our powers don’t kick in until we’re eighteen. That means that while we can raise the dead, we suck at controlling them until we’re adults. I guess I can see why Hades thinks we’re playing games with his souls, but how will we ever learn if we don’t train? And training is life or death. More death though since the things we’re fighting are well… corpses. Zombies try to eat whatever moves, and while they can’t technically eat us without dying from our poisoned blood, they don’t exactly have the brains to think that move through. That means getting hurt is a very real possibility, especially for the newbies. 

But the worst part? Tony’s lectures about Ophi history. I mean, Medusa is cool and all. She’s our ancestor, so I get learning about her, but the slideshows? I’d rather battle a cemetery full of hungry zombies. But being an Ophi isn’t bad. In fact it has a lot of perks. We’re crazy powerful. I mean if Hades hates us so much and wants our powers so badly, we must be powerful, right? It’s kind of awesome to know we make the god of the Underworld shake in his boots, even if he is shaking more from anger instead of fear. 

Throw in a few bowls of mac and cheese and you have a typical day in my life. Okay, if I’m being totally honest, I’m also going to make sure I get in a few make-out sessions with Jodi each day. ;)
