Title: Beautiful Dead: Jonas
Author: Eden Maguire
Genre: Young Adult
Release date: 03/01/10
Darina's year goes from bad to worse when her boyfriend, Phoenix, is killed in a knife fight, making him the fourth student from their high school to die that year. She's certain that she's going crazy when she sees him and the others in an abandoned barn, but when Phoenix kisses her, she's convinced he's come back... to life?

Jonas, Summer, Arizona, and Phoenix have been brought back from limbo by the enigmatic and sometimes frightening Hunter, and are allowed to remain in the world of the living for one year in order to set right a wrong linked to their deaths. In exchange for being allowed to see Phoenix, Darina agrees to help the undead teens find justice, starting with Jonas... whose year is nearly up.

Darina must discover who is behind Jonas's fatal motorcycle accident... without becoming a victim herself... and keep the Beautiful Dead a secret. She would sacrifice anything to help her beloved Phoenix, but setting him free might mean losing him forever.


  1. I really like the covers in this series. I can't find a website for the author, did you notice one?

  2. No, I can't seem to find a website for the author. But I did find out that this book is being re-released in March through a larger publishing house. So technically it's available now, but it seems to be out of print and hard to get.

  3. This one looks interesting, I hadn't heard of it before, thanks for sharing!

  4. Sounds interesting, the plot reminded me of the movie The Crow. If you read it, I hope see your thoughts.
