Carson and Brett remain the bullies they always were and their posse continues to grow. How long can the two groups stay out of each others' way before there's a firestorm of retribution...

The Government Graysheets continue to keep tabs on Caleb's every move while Jade's family threatens their relationship. Can they still be together even when events threaten to tear them apart?

My Review:

Caleb and all his friends are now all high school students and all but Jonesy is going to Kent Paranormal High. Caleb, Jade, Tiff, and all their friends are all learning more about their abilities and how to use them. Jade is still having problems with her dad trying to be a part of her life. Yeah right all he wants to do is put his fist in her face. I love how they all get along and the things they say to each other. They are just cutting up and playing with one another but sometimes they are serious or at least I think Tiff is more serious than the others. Tiff is a very straight up person she will tell you like it is.

I love it when one of the guys says a cuss word and one of the parents will call their name and say language and whoever it is that said the cuss word just kind of mumbles sorry. This would have me laughing and sometimes I would be hurting. Gramps is the kind of person that you just can't help but love. I loved how everything that Gramps did was ok because he was "grandfathered" in or something like that. I mean all the things that he could do and get by with when no one else could. Gramps is a real cool dude for an older guy. He would tell anyone how it was and he wouldn't scared of no one or anything.

Caleb and Tiff decide to help Garcia with his murder investigation. They want to help find whoever it is that is killing the kids. Caleb thought since he had an Affinity for the Dead he should use to help people otherwise it was useless. Working with the police was a way for them to use it and help people at the same time. He thought it was cool as hell that he could rise zombies out of their graves and get them to do what he wanted but he wanted to do more.

Brett is still giving Jade a hard time stalking her and trying to push himself on her. Brett wants Jade for his girlfriend but Jade likes Caleb. Jade knows she probably needs to tell Brett to get lost but she is just not the type of person to be mean to someone especially when they haven't really did anything to hurt her. Caleb doesn't like Brett following his girl around and gets pissed when Jade fails to tell him about Brett. Brett just wants what he can't have and to be the one in control. He wants to be the bad guy and everyone fall down on their knees and worship him. Brett and Carson have learned that Caleb and his friends are stronger than they were last year so Brett and Carson have gotten reinforcement on their side. They have obtained more friends with abilities like theirs. You know I really don't like the way Brett, Carson and their friends act. I don't like the way they treat people like they are a rug that they wipe their feet on. But I think I understand why Brett acts and does what he does which doesn't give him a reason or excuse to do what he does. I just mean he has had a hard life his dad abusing him and his older brother being killed a few years back. He is probably just angry at the whole world. Like I said it doesn't give him an ok or an out other people have gone through the same thing or very similar. Jade's dad had beaten her up a lot and she doesn't have a mean bone in her little body.

I liked how the guys would like describe girls or their weight they would say she is like a buck five. I have never heard this and thought it was funny. I just love how these kids was so happy and fun loving with the greysheets after them and also with all the kids that was getting killed. They could put it all in the back of their minds and get on with their lives I mean they couldn't change any of it so why let it mess up their lives. These are all cool kids.

I am really enjoying reading the Death series and I plan on reading every book in the series. Tamara Rose Blodgett is a great writer and I also intend to read more work than just the Death series. I love zombies and the Death series is a nice change to other zombies like The Walking Dead kind of zombies. Oh don't get me wrong I totally love The Walking Dead and will not miss an episode for nothing or no one. But you know change is refreshing sometimes.
