The Colour of Death by Elizabeth Davies - Book Tour & Review

The Colour of Death
“Mad, bad and dangerous to know.”

Olivia Parr doesn’t believe her ability to see auras is a gift. It hasn’t exactly done her any favours. Quite the opposite, in fact. Having become something of a loner, she tries to avoid people and the glow surrounding them, preferring to view life through the lens of a camera, where she can’t see those telltale colours.
But when a rare visit to a theatre ends in death and bloodshed, Olivia’s life is about to become considerably more complicated.

During the mayhem, one man stands out, and not just because he seems oblivious to the terrible carnage. The reason? He has no aura.

But everyone has an aura, right?


Except for the dead.

Not only is she fascinated and intrigued by this strange, compelling man, in the aftermath of the tragedy she gains a protector; a man whose aura is deep, dark red – the colour of blood.

My Review
The Colour of Death is the first book in a trilogy. It tells the story of Olivia Parr, woman who prefers to keep to herself because of her ability to see auras. She's been called a freak all her life, and seeing so many colors surrounding crowds of people overwhelms her, so it's easier to just be alone.
All that changes one night at the theater. 
Now, Olivia has to deal with not one, but two men stalking her. One is intrigued by her and wants more from her than she's willing to give. The other wants to keep her safe. Which man will succeed?
I really enjoyed The Colour of Death. It's dark. It's fascinating. And I really liked that the vampire in this one was a straight-up vampire. No frills. No fuss. No romanticizing him. He was out for blood, and he would do whatever he needed to to get it.
I also found Olivia to be a fun character. Even though she's a bit of a loner, I liked how unique she was. I have to admit, I've always thought having abilities would be cool, like seeing auras (like she does) or being able to sense things before they happened or something like that. I think that's why Olivia was so likable for me. And Crow, even with his disbelieving nature, was a great character.
The story isn't too slow, nor does it feel rushed. The pacing is nice, and it's easy to get lost in the story. I found myself curious and anxious to know how everything would play out.
If you're a fan of paranormal romances or stories involving Dracula-esque vampires, you'll want to get yourself a copy of The Colour of Death today. 
I'm looking forward to book two.
4 stars!

Elizabeth Davies is a paranormal author, whose books have a romantic flavour with more than a hint of suspense. And death. There's usually death...
