In fact, the whole world’s dead. Every single person, apparently. Unburied and reimagined into a beautiful living-dead woman called Winter, she is doomed to spend the rest of eternity in a quaint, peaceful city with no hunger, no sickness and no bills to pay. Her Second Life is perfect in every way possible.
So why is she so bent on destroying it all?
After angering the mayor, befriending rebel headless teenagers and igniting romance with a dark and brooding neighbor, she finds herself wrestling madly with a First Life she cannot remember and this Second Life she cannot accept. Not to mention the maniacal army of rotting corpses who want her dead. Again.
But none of that matters in comparison to an even worse problem. There’s a guest in her house. A rude, good-looking man on the run ... a man with a heartbeat.
To start off, I was iffy about reading this book and joining the book tour. I know the author lives near me, and we will be going to the same events in the Houston area and didn't want to make things awkward.
Starting the book, I was wary. But I had been bossed by a good friend and fellow blogger (I feel the need, the need to read), so I had to give into her whims. I have one thing to say to you, Angela Pratt, THANK YOU!
Holy fluff balls! This book - just wow. It has been a while since I put off reading the end of a book because I wasn't ready for it to end. I absolutely loved the world Daryl created, including the characters involved.
Although it does end with no need for a second book, I still really want one. This is one of the most original books I've read, and it was like a breath of fresh air getting to experience it.
If there was a way for me to somehow experience reading this book again for the first time, I would take it. That is something I almost never say. I have reread very few books, but this is one I will want to read over and over.
I am pretty sure I laughed for the entire first 20% of the book, non stop. (Which is apparently frowned upon if it is way past bed time and your husband has to wake up early the next morning)
I will be bossing lots of people to at least give it a look see.
