The second book in this new young adult series following the highly-praised Dearly, Departed is packed with adventure, danger, zombies, humor, and romance, an addictive page-turner that will thrill fans of Suzanne Collins’s The Hunger Games, Scott Westerfeld’s Uglies series, Fallen by Lauren Kate, and James Dashner’s The Maze Runner.

It’s 2196, and the city of New London is now markedly changed. Political and social tensions are building around the advent of the “civilized” undead, and there’s violence in the streets. When that violence hits close to home, Nora Dearly and Bram Griswold are once again forced to take control of their own destinies. As old friends become foes and chaos reigns all around them, Nora and Bram must find strength in each other—no matter the cost. (Edelweiss)

I read, and LOVED, Dearly, Departed last year. The world building and the characters where so interesting. I'm really looking forward to meeting Bram and Nora again in Dearly, Beloved!

What are you Waiting on this week???

  1. Ooh. I love the cover! I sadly haven't actually gotten around to reading this series yes. I know, I know. I totally should. But I swear my pile of 'need to read series' gets longer every day :P Haha.

    My WOW

  2. While I wasn't a fan of the first book (too many POV's for me, especially of characters I didn't really care about), I'd still like to see what happens with Nora and BRam. I don't like the cover as much, though! What happened to the Victorian elements from the first one? That's what drew me into Dearly...

  3. I'm really excited about this one too! I loved Dearly, Departed and this cover looks just as gorgeous as the first one :) Great pick!
