There's no way around it anymore. Zooey is undeniably Undead.

Zooey has been snatched from her home by the Z-Division of the National Guard and thrown into a gated town for the Undead. Her only escape is when she takes the forty-five minute bike ride back into the city of Boston to work as a zombie in an escape room, ironically. But fate deals her a generous hand when her soldier friend, Miles, is reassigned to be the guard at her new apartment complex. Miles tries to brighten Zooey's bleak surroundings but she resists, afraid of being stuck there permanently. Zooey tries to find solace in her only Undead friend, Ren, but he is distracted cooking up a new drug to help the Undead become a superior race to fight for their rights and win. Meanwhile, Zooey's best friend, Elizabeth, is interning under Christine Moore (Yes, the Christine Moore from the popular Dead Soil trilogy!), the world famous Undead lawyer and activist. Together, they will try to win back the freedom the Undead of Boston deserve. But could Ren's new drug derail all their hard work? And will Zooey be able to survive this new level of prejudice society is throwing at her?

My Review:

I love this world that was created for Undeniably Undead and can’t seem to get enough of it. Each of the Zooey Zombie books grabbed my attention from the first page and never let up. I don’t think that I will ever forget about Zooey Zombie. I love the new twists on zombies. I like getting to see the life of an undead. Of how they live and are treated by the living.

I felt so bad for Zooey on more than one occasion when she was with a living person. I know they are scared and don’t know what to expect from an undead but couldn’t they just give them a chance to prove themselves one way or another? What if it was a member of their family?

Undeniably Undead kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to see where the story was going next. The suspense alone kept me turning the pages. Once I picked up Undeniably Undead there was definitely no way I was going to lay it down until I had read the last page.

Zooey is back for more. She is still fighting the living for the right to have a life too. Zooey and the other zombies have been snatched up by the Z-Division of the National Guard and thrown into a gated town for the Undead.

Zooey has a job in the city working as a zombie in an escape room. Zooey’s boss is a real douchebag. Nothing Zooey does is right with this guy. Zooey like everyone else has her off days where she is down and out. Days when she is dragging and sluggish.

There was this one day when Zooey was having one of her bad days, you know not feeling up to par so to speak and she was just half playing her role as a zombie. Her boss notices and takes half her pay because she didn’t perform well.

Then one day when she is feeling pretty good Zooey plays her job well as a zombie, after all, she was one once upon a time. She scares a family that lost a family member to the zombies but who probably hasn’t by now, right.

Well, Zooey’s boss gives her a hard time for this as well. What is a girl supposed to do? Do her job well or not? Geez, mister get a life, oops, no pun intended here.

But things start to look up a little for Zooey when she meets a new friend, a lifer, a soldier friend that has been reassigned as a guard at her new apartment. Miles would like to be a little more than friends but Zooey is afraid that it will cause her problems in the long run.

Zooey meets more friends or a few friends from her old life who are now undead like her. She is on her way home from work one night when she hears a noise. Someone is playing loud music in an abandoned building. She decides to check it out. The undead is having a party.

Life is about to get a little more heated for Zooey after meeting her new friends. Her life is going to change in more ways than one. Change for the good or bad? You decide by picking up a copy of Undeniably Undead today!

Be sure and check out all the books in the Zooey Zombie Series
