Touching Evil Book Review

Touching Evil
Leila Marx Novel #1
Amber Garr



Book Description


With one touch, Leila can see it all.

Leila Marx is trying to put her life back together after her fiancé is murdered. When Detective Garrick Pearson enlists her help with a difficult case, she is thankful for the distraction and the opportunity to use her talents as a touch clairvoyant. Leila and Garrick delve into the mystery behind a series of missing teenage girls and mummified corpses while discovering their own growing attraction to each other.

Conner Hoffman is an intriguing lawyer and striking half-demon who enters Leila’s life unexpectedly. Although her visions are terrifying, she is fascinated by his charm and his legacy. When it becomes evident that the murders are linked to a paranormal event, Conner introduces Leila to a world unbeknownst to ordinary society. She suddenly finds herself immersed in supernatural politics, sorcery, and danger as she becomes the killer’s next target.

Staying alive will mean relying on friends, accepting the unbelievable, and trusting in her heart again.



My Thoughts


I really enjoyed ‘Touching Evil’ it was a really unique read and Amber created such strong fascinating characters that drew you into the story along with such a sensational plot.

Girls are being kidnapped and there are absolutely no leads as to where they are being taken and by whom. Then days later an anonymous phone call leads the police to the missing girl’s grave.

She is badly decomposed and seems to be mummified and they can't figure out what is happening to these poor girls, but one thing is for sure; girls keep disappearing.


Detective Garrick called in Leila a clairvoyant to see if she can possibly give them any leads. The case quickly turns into something much darker than the police or Leila can handle by themselves. Leila then stumbles upon some help and understanding from an odd group of supernatural creatures she has only seen on TV. She must accept their help however, to save girls lives, but they cannot involve the police now.


It was a fascinating tale of adventure, suspense and magic. She had some really fascinating characters; the good ones had a lot of heart and great depth to them. The villains were written so dark and demented it will give you goose bumps.


I loved this book. There were supernatural creatures that I had never heard of. So that was pretty cool. I like how they all work together as well. That was a pretty cool idea. Another thing I really liked about Touching Evil’ is that it brought my two favorite genres together paranormal and suspense. I recently read a book that did that and I was blown away and I was thrilled that this one turned out to be a mix of the genres as well.


I really enjoyed the plot and it was a fast-paced, fascinating read. ‘Touching Evil’  is another amazing book from Amber Garr.
