I loved this book, not quite as much as Dearly, Departed but close. It was missing some of the romance that the first book had in it. I still love the writing style of Lia Habel, and the fact that each major character has chapters and is told from their POV. Bram, sweet.. sweet Bram, I love him!! He is so kind, caring, considerate, and selfless. The ending.. eeekkkk, I loved it!!!
Just as the city starts to come to terms with the undead, a new strain of the Laz is discovered. Gangs of humans(The Murder) and gangs of Zombies (The Changed) threaten the already fragile New Victorian life. Bram, Nora, and their group of Zombies fight to keep this delicate balance intact, as well as their lives.
Nora is nearly abducted, Pam and her family have a close call with one of the groups, and everyone is after zombie with the new strain of the Laz. New allies are made and old ones are lost in this gripping tale of Lia Habel's Dearly, Beloved.
