Book Review: Worth Dying For (A Dying for a Living Novel Book 5) by Kory M. Shrum

Worth Dying For (A Dying for a Living Novel Book 5)
by Kory M. Shrum

May 2nd 2016
Kindle Edition, 436 pages
A supernatural suspense novel about a snarky anti-heroine and her motley crew trying to stop the unstoppable. The fifth novel in the popular Dying for a Living series, Worth Dying For picks up two months after the events of Dying Light.

The gang is in New York and much to Jesse’s surprise, they are all still alive. Jesse, Ally, Rachel, Gideon and Maisie have managed to stay off of Caldwell’s radar for months. But when your enemy can control minds and teleport, there isn’t a safe place in the world where you can hide. They have a plan for stopping his genocidal reign, but it will require a 2500-mile road trip to Cochise, Arizona, the abandoned military base where it all began.

This is book 5 in a fascinating urban fantasy series. There are so many twists and revelations in each book that you need to start from the beginning to appreciate the story progression. Just when I think I know what direction the story is going in, BAM! it jumps the tracks and adds another layer I didn't see coming. Good stuff people, good stuff.

I can't talk about the plot without spoiling things for new readers. For those who have been following the series, Jess is finally coming to grips with the fact that she might not save the girl and save the world; she will have to chose. And her best friend Rachel is being seduced to the dark side... We still don't know who is behind that and why they want to stop Jesse. And Jesse hasn't lost her sarcastic personality which is always amusing.
