Undead Much? - Stacey Jay

Even Zombie Settlers with Super Hot Boyfriends get the Blues...

A few months ago I was a normal girl with a normal life. But that was before my power to Settle the Undead returned and someone tried to kill me with zombies.

Now I work magic and practice kicking butt while trying to find time for pom squad and my boyfriend, Ethan, and trying NOT to think about how freaky my life has become. It can be tough. Still...things could be worse...

Oh yeah, right:
1. Feral new super-strong zombies. Check.
2. Undead psychic hottie predicting a zombie apocalypse. Check.
3. Earth-shattering secrets that could land me in Settler prison for life. Check.
4. Cheerleader vs. pom squad turf war threatening the end of the half time as we know it. Check.

I'm going to need therapy (and a cookie) if I live through the week. Unfortunately I'm learning that's not something Zombie Queens can take for granted.

Title: Undead Much? (ARC)
Author: Stacey Jay
Genre: Young Adult, Zombie fiction
Publisher: Razorbill
My Rating: 5/5

I think I enjoyed this book more than You Are So Undead to Me. I loved the characters and the tension between Megan and Ethan. Several situations come up where it seems that the author is trying to subliminally mention that sex is a big deal and not something to be taken lightly. That, and oh, a zombie or two would show up at the most inconvenient times. It made for an interesting read. As a zombie hater, I loved this book. The zombies were grotesque yet they weren't which just made it better. I think it was an excellent follow-up novel and I can't wait to read the third installment! There are more surprises, more depth and details to tease you into wanting to read the next book in the series. I like where Jay is going with this series, we get to learn more about Megan and her super-charged powers, and we get to see how she reacts when she is threatened with Settler prison. The book seemed to flow well and was engaging throughout. I, for one, will be waiting impatiently for the next installment in the series to see what happens next.

i have to agree, I am also waiting impatiently for book 3. Undead Much was my first zombie book and I loved it. Thanks for the great review.
