Praise for UNDEAD
"Fast, furious, freaky, funny, and seriously sick." -- CHARLIE HIGSON, author of the ENEMY series

"McKay plays her tale for maximum snark...humor and action keep the pages turning...Blood spurts; entrails drag; body parts shed; hearts (living ones) throb -- it's all good, gory fun." -- KIRKUS
"The typical school-centered zombie story is given a fabulous reboot in McKay's debut novel...The perfect balance of humor and horror...will have readers alternately biting their nails and snorting with laughter...A fun, pulse-pounding addition to the zombie genre." -- VOYA
"Fun to devour." -- BOOKLIST

The story continues right after the end of Undead, Bobby and her friends have been picked up by another school bus and think they've managed to leave the zombies far behind them but when the bus crashes they quickly find themselves back in danger. With Smitty missing it is up to Bobby, Alice and Pete, along with newcomer Russ, to find him using the clues that Bobby's mum has left for them. Even if they do manage to get the group back together can they find a way to get out of Scotland now that the country has been overrun by zombies and officially quarantined from the rest of the world?
Bobby is exactly how I remembered her - she is strong, resilient and knows how to kick zombie butt, there is no way she is going to give up on Smitty and she will do whatever it takes to find him. Pete tends to be the brains behind the operation and is great when it comes to figuring out the clues they have been given even when he isn't the best at physically fighting. Alice can be a bit hopeless but she always manages to look perfect and I have to admit to laughing at some of the things she gets up to. I did find myself missing the banter between Bobby and Smitty during the first half of the book but that was more than made up for when they finally catch up with him. Smitty manages to come up with such completely crazy ideas but they wouldn't have got as far as they did without him that's for sure.Read more ›
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Our heroine here is tough, smart, funny, adept at tossing off either a one-liner or a molotov cocktail, and totally not impressed by the zombie apocalypse. Her sidekicks are a riotous assembly of even-snarkier drama queen, hot guy, nerdy guy, and various potential zombie munchies.
(Mild SPOILERS for the especially sensitive.) This time out, (this is the sequel to Undead), we have to escape a hospital, find hunky rebel Smitty, and fight big pharma, all while avoiding the, [incidental background music], zombie horde. You can follow this without having read the first book; there are enough references in the first chapter or two to get you squared away with heroine Bobby, hunky Smitty, nerdy Pete, snarky Alice, the pharma goons who leaked the zombie virus, and the question of whether Bobby's doctor Mom is a good guy or bad guy, and dead or alive. Oh wait, I just got you up to speed.
So, funny, exciting, well plotted, gory, deadpan, hysterical, and chock full of zombie goodness. Between the snappy banter and Bobby's engaging interior monologues this book will capture your heart, and then eat it.
Please note that I received a free ecopy of this book in exchange for a candid review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.
All I want now if for another book in the series to be written!
