*I received this book as an eARC from Patchwork Press on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

I really enjoyed Mortality. It takes the whole zombie trope and makes it something new and unique. The characters were (mostly) likeable, and I really wanted to know how things were going to play out for Savannah and her friends. Even though we no longer have Zarah's story to follow, we still get to see things from the zombie perspective, whic

Continuing the story from Mortality some time after the first book, this book is more about the recovery whereas the first book really focussed on the down fall.

*There may be some spoilers in here for the first book*

Zarah has been changed for Chelsea in this novel as the secondary main character in this novel. I found her story however to be the most interesting. Starting as one of the zombies (the second generation, oops, the vaccine f

Mortality is a young adult post-apocalyptic zombie story that will have you on the edge of your seat. Kellie Sheridan tells two stories simultaneously that intertwine to create Mortality. The two narrators Savannah and Zarah fight their way through a world full of zombies, but ultimately their biggest enemy are those still living who have their own agendas. They fight for love,friendship, and their lives. Morality was an amazing book and I was hooked from chapter one.

NOTE: My review may have spoilers if you have NOT read the 1st book yet! You are WARNED!!!

DUALITY has been a long time coming for me! I read the 1st book MORTALITY last year and was amazed by the originality, and the unique new take on the zombie genre! Kelly has taken your average zombie and turned them into something so unique, and addicting, that it will keep you up into the wee hours just needing more of the gruesome, yet addicting zombie-filled world she's created, with a romance spin that'

I’ll admit it; this is one of those books that I picked up and got so sucked into that I forgot to leave myself any notes to fall back on for the review I knew I’d be writing. It was that good.

As far as the technical side of things goes, there were very few errors. I found two. Not only is that acceptable for a published book, it’s pretty damned impressive. The narrative was clear, easy to read, and moved at a pretty decent pace. I never f

Good read

It was ok. I'm confused, is there another book coming? I hope so. The ending left way too much hanging out there.

Kellie has been in love with stories in all of their forms for as long as she can remember. Admittedly, sometimes that means falling into places like Stars Hollow and Sunnydale, but books have always been her true love.

Kellie spent part of her twenties living in Galway, Ireland and swooning after various lilting accents but is now back home in Ontario, Canada.
