When Saidie starts college, she meets a group of people who she becomes firm friends with. They all seem to have a supernatural element to them and she doesn’t mind being the only normal human amongst them. The trouble is she isn’t a regular human, but it takes the not so fresh, recently buried, animated corpse of her dead dog to tell her that something is amiss.
When Alex’s uncle sends Saidie away to learn how to use her newly awakened gift of necromancy, she hopes to be able to control her unpredictable gift but something terrible is going on in the colonial plantation and she is trapped.
Saidie’s gift makes for an interesting character and I was hooked on the story from the start. Full zombie action is interwoven with love interest and although they seem an unlikely mix they work. This book was even better than the first in the series and I can’t wait to read the next. Baker has an addictive style of writing that leaves you hungry for more.
