Being dead can be a great way to find yourself…

Struggling to pay her bills in New York, theater student Evaine Michaels sees an opportunity to make money by taking part in an unsanctioned clinical trial for a new drug. But things don’t go as planned. She wakes up in a derelict hospital, chained to a bed with no memory of who she is or how she got there. Then a band of pale-skinned men, led by the gorgeous Luca, bursts in and rescues her. Evaine is instantly attracted to Luca, but he’s so hell-bent on stopping the experiments, he has no time for the feelings she’s awakening within him.

Safely back at Haven House, Evaine is introduced to The Family and learns that the drug trials have made her a Deader, a reanimated Undead. Evaine and Luca find themselves getting close, until Evaine remembers not only who she is, but that she’s engaged. And her fiancé, Tristan, is probably still looking for her. Torn between her first love and her new heart’s desire, Evaine has some hard choices to make.

But when a rogue faction of Deaders, called Feeders, attempt to kidnap her, Luca suspects Evaine might be the key to the experiments, and everyone must band together to keep Evaine off the cutting table…

My Review:

When I read the summary for Dead Awakenings and saw that it involved the undead, zombies, and or Deaders I just had to read it. I want you to know that once I did turn to that first page there was no way I could put it down then, oh not until I had read the last page that was. I love anything and everything zombies.

Dead Awakenings is one of the best zombies books I have read in a long time if not ever. Dead Awakenings is very unique as it is different than most zombie books that I have read before and I have read a lot. I love the way they became zombies or Deaders.

With every word, I read I tried so very hard to picture it all in my head and I did but I don’t think my imagination could ever do it justice. I would very much like to see Dead Awakenings on the big screen to see how close I came. Now don’t get me wrong the descriptions were brilliantly done.

Dead Awakenings is about a girl, Evaine who is just trying to make her way in life. She is going to college and working part-time to just pay the bills and her college tuition. One day Evaine hears about this trial for a new drug where she can make a few dollars so she signs up.

But this new drug trial is not what she expected. When she wakes up she is no longer the person she used to be. She doesn’t remember anything about her life before. Evaine learns that she is no longer alive that she is now dead, known as a Deader.

I love this new twist on zombies in Dead Awakenings. I like that they are sort of like vampires but don’t feed on humans. I also like that they have what they call newbies and feeders. I can’t wait to read more in this world with these new twists on the zombies.

I would highly recommend Dead Awakenings to all zombie fans! One-click your copy of Dead Awakenings today for an epic adventure into the world of zombie-like vampires.
