Karen DeSonne always passed as a normal teenager - and now that she's dead, she's still passing - this time, as alive. When her dead friends are accused of a high profile murder and forced into hiding, she has to prove their innocence. Which means doing the unthinkable and becoming the girlfriend of bionist zealot Peter Martinsburg, who she suspects of framing them. But if he finds out who Karen really is, the consequences for her will be worse than death...
I didn’t realise this was the third book in the Generation Dead series until I started reading it and wondered who some of the characters were that were mentioned. Now that I’ve read, and enjoyed this book, I have to go out and buy the first two in the series to put together some pieces (and because I enjoyed the third book).
I love a good zombie book and found this one to be quite different and humourous.
The main character, Karen, is shot by a policeman and mysteriously heals unlike the other zombies who return with the damage that caused their deaths, Karen decides to date murderer Pete Martinsburg to try to expose the truth about the anti-zombie hate groups. As the story progresses, we learn more about Karen's death as a suicide. She drowned herself because of her mother's reaction to her disclosure of being gay and her belief that she could never be with the girl she loved. Some secondary characters from Generation Dead and Kiss of Life return for cameo appearances but this is mainly Karen's story and her hope to find redemption.
If you haven’t read the first two books, get yourself a copy and read them first, then get stuck into this one so you enjoy if fully.
