Q: HOW MANY ZOMBIES DOES IT TAKE TO RUIN A SOCIAL LIFE?
A: NOT MANY.
Megan Berry is a Zombie Settler by birth, which means she’s part-time shrink to a whole bunch of semi-dead people with killer issues. All Megan really wants is to go to homecoming, but when you’re trailed by a bunch of slobbering corpses whenever you leave the house, it’s kinda hard to score a date. Let’s just say Megan’s love life could use some major resuscitation.
Megan’s convinced her life can’t get any worse – until someone in school starts using black magic to turn average, angsty Undead into scary, hardcore flesh-eating Zombies. Now it’s up to Megan to stop the Zombie apocalypse. Her life – and more importantly, the homecoming dance – depends on it.
I decided to venture out of my usual paranormal realm of vampires. *GASP* I know, scary huh! I decided to read about zombies this time. I had heard so much about this book that I just knew I had to read it!
To me, the heroine Megan, was so wrapped up into boys, school parties, and herself that I kept forgetting that she is also a Settler who returns zombies back to their grave. Yes, I considered her very shallow. Ethan, the hero I guess you would call him, was the saving grace of this book. He turned her around near the end and made her realize that life is more than who is elected homecoming queen. Near the end she still has some shallow qualities, but she seems to grow up a little. With that being said, the book still had me interested from start to finish. There was alot of action, witty remarks and fun. Will I read the next in the series? Of course! This was still a delightful read even though I wanted to roll my eyes at Megan’s selfish nature. There were still LOL moments that redeemed the book. I also can’t wait to see what happens with Megan and Ethan’s relationship in the next book.
Very Good! Worth Spending Your Money on!
