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.
Zombification: lost souls - teens with unresolved issues reanimate and are drawn to the Settlers for guidance
Zombie mode: low-functioning, but if conjured up by black magic then feral
Interesting take in this storyline with the usage of spells to combat RCs (reanimated corpses). So, magic along with fighting skills are needed to deal with our beloved zombies.
In this tale we have a superheroine in the makings. She's tough yet she's also girly. She resists embracing her special Settler skills to protect the community from the RCs. But in the end succumbs and does some "growing up."
You'll get some LOL moments with Megan's snarkiness.
Oh yeah, and some romance is thrown in amongst the zombie chaos.
All in all a fun book. Looking forward to the sequel.
