Title:               Dearly Departed 
Author:          Lia Habel
Pages:             451
category:      Zombies
The story:

A sharp, slick, blisteringly paced debut novel, with an unconventional but tender love story at its heart.

I parted the curtains. A skeletal face peered back at me, blackened eyes rolling in sockets seemingly unsupported by flesh. It smiled…

It should be game over for Nora Dearly when she is ambushed and dragged off into the night by the living dead. But this crack unit of teen zombies are the good guys, sent to protect Nora from the real monsters roaming the country and zeroing in on cities to swell their ranks.

Can Nora find a way to kill off the evil undead once and for all? Can she trust her protectors to resist their hunger for human flesh? And can she stop herself falling for the noble, sweet, surprisingly attractive, definitely-no-longer-breathing Bram…?

The view of a book addict:

This book is different from the other zombie books I’ve read, first of all this book takes place in the future but the people decided to live in the past. Second not all zombies in this book are bad, there are zombies fighting for the living. Combine that with a love story and you have a strange but very entertaining book.

The book is different and that just makes it more interesting than any other zombie book I’ve ever read. Yes there is blood and eating people but that’s not the main focus of this book. The heroine isn’t just sitting by like some girl who needs to be saved, she fights for her live. I just loved the whole storyline so it took me one page to get into this book!

I can’t remember I’ve ever read a zombie book like this one!

The verdict of a book addict:

An amazing book with an amazing story! It makes me very curious about the second book in the series.
