After the first harrowing but successful zombie encounter, fourteen-year-old Goldie Rich and her older sister, Gema, make amends. Since Gema still doesn't share Goldie's belief in zombies, Goldie and best friend, Rita, decide to keep their zombie activities a secret. With nine souls left to free from the magical pendant Goldie found, her zombie hunting days are far from over.
The warring light and dark magic of the pendant give Goldie frequent nightmares. Her visions give her clues of what lies ahead and what she needs to do to defeat the evil Bokor. As she struggles to unravel them while keeping it a secret, friends Jonny and Blake get pulled into the zombie hunt. Just when Goldie finally feels she has the mission under control, some new discoveries alert her that the dark magic has placed Gema in danger.
What am I reading now?
I have a lot on my to-read list, but often, I have to choose between writing and reading—and writing wins. I just finished the romance Always Rayne by Sierra Avalon.
I usually lean towards mystery/supernatural, but I really enjoyed it. Immediately, I picked up The Assassin’s Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke about pirates, one of my favorite subjects. It had made the top spot of many pirate fans’ lists, so I had to read it. It’s hard to put down.
Also, a friend urged me to read Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James.
I guess I’m a few years late hopping on the bandwagon. I’m only on chapter two, so I haven’t gotten to any racy parts. I also have City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare up next.
