Review Copy: From author in exchange for honest review
Judy tries to set right the harm she inflicted on a spirit she raised, but new zombies attack—zombies raised from among the long-time dead. Someone else just like her is out there, and he’s not trying to set anything right. To save her own life, and protect the innocent inhabitants of the nearby town who’ve become her friends, Judy has to figure out who’s raising the dead and why. She must also learn to control the darkness inside her—a seductive darkness that promises her power beyond her wildest dreams.
This is one adventure of a book. After being raised in the church to find out you're a witch is like the biggest oxymoron there is. I found this to be the greatest thing ever.
Now this being my first zombie book, I don't have anything to compare it to. So with that being said, I really liked how the zombies weren't trying to take over the world. The usage of them being created from dead people was a unique spin on these creatures.
Let me talk about the setting for a moment. I felt like I was in the town from Beauty and the Beast. Don't ask me why, but I did. There was this medieval factor to it that I loved. But I wasn't sure if it worked considering its a dystopian book.
Overall, great read. If you're not big into the zombies, then I'd look into this one.
