Undead Much? by Stacey Jay

From Goodreads:

CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR PREVIOUS BOOK

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 apocolypse. 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.


I adored You Are So Undead to Me and I was a bit worried this wouldn’t live up to it. But it did. Big time! I really, really enjoyed it.

I love the voice Stacey Jay gives to Megan – she is really sweet, very good at putting herself into trouble and very believable as a teenage girl trying to balance her supernatural duties with regular teen issues.

The plot line in this was superb and I didn’t work it out. I loved the progression of her relationship with Monica – I think the potential is there for a really good friendship. I also really liked the addition of Cliff, even if his presence does test Megan's relationship with Ethan. As for Ethan he was on fine form – I really like his maturity and his sensitivity when it comes to Megan.

I also liked how this ended – a kind of cliffhanger but not an 'OMG I need the next book now' cliffhanger. Having said that, I do hope there are more to come otherwise I may have to cry! I really love this series – it ticks all the boxes for me:)
