Dearly, Departed: A Zombie Novel
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
A classic romance, suspense thriller, rip-roaring adventure, and macabre comedy all at once, Dearly, Departed redefines the concept of undying love.
CAN A PROPER YOUNG VICTORIAN LADY FIND TRUE LOVE IN THE ARMS OF A DASHING ZOMBIE?
The year is 2195. The place is New Victoria—a high-tech nation modeled on the mores of an antique era. Sixteen-year-old Nora Dearly is far more interested in her country’s political unrest than in silly debutante balls. But the death of her beloved parents leaves Nora at the mercy of a social-climbing aunt who plans to marry off her niece for money. To Nora, no fate could be more horrible—until she’s nearly kidnapped by an army of walking corpses. Now she’s suddenly gunning down ravenous zombies alongside mysterious black-clad commandos and confronting a fatal virus that raises the dead. Then Nora meets Bram Griswold, a young soldier who is brave, handsome, noble . . . and thoroughly deceased. But like the rest of his special undead unit, Bram has been enabled by luck and modern science to hold on to his mind, his manners, and his body parts. And when his bond of trust with Nora turns to tenderness, there’s no turning back. Eventually, they know, the disease will win, separating the star-crossed lovers forever. But until then, beating or not, their hearts will have what they desire.

i really want to read this book it looks really good
An amazing book! <3
I honestly loved this book! There's flaws in it, I'll admit that, but I was sold the moment Bram appeared. He's got that gentlemen attitude that all girls wishes their boyfriend possesses and more. Did I mention he's a captain with a hot uniform?? He's charming and intelligent, and he look after the welfare of others. I love his banters with Nora. The only that bugged me was the fact that the book was written from five people's point of view. I would have been happy if it was just from Nora or both Nora and Bram. Also, there were way to many characters and informations for your brain to register in my opinion. But it might be just me because I read fast and skim sometimes. Still, it was a good read filled with excitement and good romance! I love how the characters turns into heroes and it makes you want to find out what happens in the end!
My favorite book!!!
This is my favorite. I love how it's told through so many points of view. I can't believe this is her first book. She is truly amazing and I can't wait for the next one!!!!
