REVIEW

"This is a series I am adding to my must read list."

Megan Berry had a normal life until her power to settle the Undead returned. Then her best friend tried to kill her and totally ruined Homecoming by using black magic to raise zombies. However things aren't all that bad. Megan did manage to get a place on the pom squad and a gorgeous boyfriend. So every cloud, or in this case zombie attack, does have a silver lining.

So normal isn't exactly how Megan would describe her life anymore and things are just about to get even weirder. Super-strong zombies, an Undead hottie who won't Settle and a cheerleader vs. Pom squad war are just a few of the problems Megan is facing. Throw in some family secrets that could see Megan going to Settler prison for life and this sixteen-year-old has more worries than any normal teenager should have.

Undead Much? is the zombie filled sequel to You Are So Undead to Me. When I read the first book in this series I was totally sucked into the concept of a 'Zombie Settler' and what they did. This time around I got totally grabbed by the continuation and expansion of such a great unique idea.

Just as fun as the first book, Undead Much? sees Megan growing into her Settler abilities as well as finding out more about herself. The normality of being a teenager and dealing with all those feelings isn't lost on Megan but it is hard for her to find time to deal with them when zombies are trying to kill you. However I am sure that a lot of Young Adult readers will be able to connect with Megan, zombies or not.

This series has got some really likable characters. Megan and Ethan are two people I would love to be friends with and the new edition Cliff is definitely someone I want to hear from again. I am actually starting to like Monica a bit more and I hope she continues to grow into bigger character.

The story this time around was well thought out and kept me guessing till the end and kept the fresh and unique taste it had last time. This series really is a great edition to the Young Adult Paranormal genre and is on par with Mari Mancusi and Heather Brewer. This is a series I am adding to my must read list.

SUMMARY

Even Zombie Settlers with Super Hot Boyfriends get the Blues...

A few months ago I was a normal girl with a normal life. But that was before my power to Settle the Undead returned and someone tried to kill me with zombies.

Now I work magic and practice kicking butt while trying to find time for pom squad and my boyfriend, Ethan, and trying NOT to think about how freaky my life has become. It can be tough. Still…things could be worse…

Oh yeah, right:
1. Feral new super-strong zombies. Check.
2. Undead psychic hottie predicting a zombie apocolypse. Check.
3. Earth-shattering secrets that could land me in Settler prison for life. Check.
4. Cheerleader vs. pom squad turf war threatening the end of the half time as we know it. Check.

I’m going to need therapy (and a cookie) if I live through the week. Unfortunately I’m learning that’s not something Zombie Queens can take for granted.

Genre: Young Adult, Urban Fantasy
