I thought this was a really fun little book. This is actually something like the 6th book in the Dead Series by Marlene Perez. The thing I really loved about the book was that I did not need to, nor did I, read the entire series in order to appreciate the book. This book served quite well as a stand alone book. I have actually only ever read one other book in this series, so the fact that I was able to pick this book up and dive right in speaks volumes to me. While reading the entire series might give me a deeper appreciation of the book, it stands alone as a complete package.
I felt like I did not get to know Jessica as a character as well as I would have liked to. We see her dealing with all these issues and obstacles, and while that was captivating, I would have liked to have learned more about her as a character. I thought the whole love zombie storyline was cute, clever, and original. And I love all the gothic literary and horror film references.
The book is a fun little read for young adults, capitalizing on the popularity of paranormal fiction. However,l there is certainly enough substance to appeal to adult readers as well.
