Allow me to start off by saying this was my first Zombie book, and OMG I loved it! I could not put it down once i started it! It was like my drug and I was an addict dying for my next high! This was an amazing book and I did not want it to end . I wanted to continue reading, I wanted to know more. I wanted more hunk zombies! The Characters were outstanding, each one possessed its own hold on your heart, just wonderful writing. My only complaint is that I have to wait for the next book to come ou ...more

3.5 stars= I liked it. The sample for Not Dead Enough was really awesome, Julia lives in a company town and her ex has launched a smear campaign that has left her villified by everyone, but things only get worse when she is kidnapped by some really scary guys who she initially thinks are her ex's goons, but are in reality so much worse.

I am not generally a fan of zombie romances but the "science imitates art" premise of military experiments that created SARAs (Self Aware Re-Animates AKA zombies)

Mina Carter does it again. I adore this series and absolutely loved this book. A little gruesome, but a lot of action!

Why you should read it: I have to say besides Warm Bodies I haven't read a book where the main hero is a zombie … I now have to re-evaluate my hotness scale. On the other hand, who wouldn't like Brett? He's gorgeous, dangerous, protective and, well, … hot! Mina's writing has always made me laugh. I've enjoyed her hero/heroine interactions, and Not Dead Enough was no exception. Julia and Brett have some steam going on, and I liked the idea of the Project and what our government could be doing.

I have a *thing* for sexy zombies, guys. A thing. So I completely appreciate a team of zombies who are sex-ay and ready to take on the world if it gets between them and their special lady friend.

For Brett, we're talking about Julia. From the moment he sees her, he's smitten. And vice versa. But with her conversion in effect, they're dealing with a lot more than fiery attraction and a need to get frisky. She's on her way to becoming a vampire and he's not exactly alive. Yeah, it's complicated.

Ok so it didn't live up to the awesomeness that was the Project Rebellion series (still waiting on book 3 btw Mina) but it was good. Lots of awesome sex, a storyline despite the brevity of it and I will definitely be waiting for the next one.
Seriously if you're expecting more from a short book about zombies and vampires unfriend me :P

This version of the Un-Death I love and would like to read more.
Actually I make a wide way around zombies but within these series „Project Rebellion“ I’m happy to be unable to do so. It was surprising and captivating and a bit of addictive.
The overall storyline and each story in itself is fantastic and beautiful like the characters - great!

The whole series so far is a recommendation for PNR readers.

This is about another group of men who are considered SARA (self-aware re-animated) and created by a rogue group of the military. They have escaped and are hunting down the bloods (created vampire) and killing them before they kill humans or the other created, Lycan/human. Also by not allowing them to become re-animated (zombies).

Asking me what I thought of this book - hot, exciting, rollercoaster. I see zombies in a really, really different light. You get zombies and then you get these guys S.A.R.A - and trust me - they are so not what you thought - they aren't dead at all and they have moving man-parts oops, all parts are movable, but they can stop... wait wait - you got to find out for yourselves.

Meet Julie who has a low-down dirty ex-husband, who turn the whole town against her. I mean they even throw things at her.

Not Dead Enough is the first book in Project Rebellion SARA and takes place in the same world as Project Rebellion. I don't usually like Zombie romances but the concept here was unique and interesting and I ended up liking it. The SARAs (Self Aware Re-Animates or AKA Zombies) were military men who were experimented on. The government has created Vampires (Bloods), Shifters and Zombies who aren't self aware and the SARAs.

Favorite Lines “What the hell...? Master race? Who do you think you are? A Nazi?”

“What did she see when she looked at him? A man or a monster?”

“Then level up, and let’s go get the motherfucker.”

“What, you mean get kidnapped by homicidal vampires? Then kick their asses?”

“Figured her Prince Charming would be a zombie.”

When going into this book I was iffy about it because of the zombies but I LOVED IT!!!
Brett is a hot as hell, who ever knew a zombie could be so yummy!

Wow, this is a great story. It is so original and unique, I loved it. There are sexy scenes and a romance, but it is more of a sci-fi/horror action story.
The heroine gets kidnapped--by vampires.
The hero has been changed into some sort of undead being by a secret government project, which gave him and the others special abilities. In fact, they are the apex predator of the supernaturals created by the project.
Totally crazy things happen, but our heroine deals with it really well. After her escape

What an awesome start to the S.A.R.A. Chronicles of Project Rebellion by Mina Carter! She's convinced me to re-consider zombies...not dead enough. Now I'm "not patient enough" to wait for the next book. I want it now, Mina Carter!

This is 4.5 stars for sure. I really liked this and it is the first thing I have read by this author. I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series at some time in the near future. There are a few little issues with wors being out of order but nothing major and nothing that should distract anyone. Things started off a bit slow but managed to kick into high gear pretty quickly once the main female was taken. The story had a nice flow that made it easy to follow and enjoy. The cha ...more

Confused with the storyline. Plot hole.

I rarely bought books because Kindle Unlimited has a ton of great books offered already. But I was hooked on the first and second book of this series. Aside from the MCs, there were secondary characters that are developing their own story namely Sanders and Richards. I was expecting that their story would progress along with the MCs in the third and fourth series just like the first and the second. But that didn't happen. What happened to Not Dead Enough?

Loved this to death, it will be a re-reader for sure.
I really am not a fan of Zombies and Apocalyptic books but as this is linked to Ms Carters Project Rebellion series which I love, I had to read it. Stupid me had bought this over two years ago but it had not downloaded onto my kindle app. Was reminded about it, found it and read it in one go.
Thoroughly enjoyed reading about these characters and it was great how Brent was with Julia.
Glad she had a little payback at the end.

Blown away

First of all, I love Mina Carter. I have read a few standalones and a couple series, most recently being Project Rebellion, so I'm pretty familiar with her writing style and know I'll love whatever she dishes out. I guess with SARAs I was expecting something similar to Project Rebellion since they're somewhat intertwined. But let me tell you, Mina blew me away with this one. The storyline, the character development, the dialogue, everything. Just fantastic. And I'll be honest and admit

The third in the Project Rebellion series varies on from the previous book, but can be read as a stand-alone.
This series has mad scientists in the military experimenting on soldiers and turning them into Bloods (vamps) Lycans (werewolf) or BDs (Re-animates or zombies)
It’s PNR so you know what you’re getting, but refreshingly the damsels aren’t damsels in distress for long; they kick arse.

Interesting and action packed

This is book 3 in the Project Rebellion series. It focuses on the SARA’s, now escaped from the supposedly defunct Project, and the Bloods from the project that are kidnapping women. It is highly intense, action packed, full of things not-human, blood and guts, and of course smoking hot passion. A super strong female heroine who turns from ordinary human to extraordinary. The pack that we know and love from books one and two are not in this book, but we continue the s

Not Dead Enough

This is the third book in this series but I hope not the last. Though this book was published in 2014 and the first two in 2018 this took place after the first two books. Here is Brett and Julia's story and her introduction into the paranormal. He is a intellectual zombie, dub SARAs. She was kidnapped by vampires. How will they connect when she is what he was made to kill? I enjoyed reading all three books hope to see more in this series at a matter date.

Julia had been kidnapped by some Army experiment hybrids. Her Ex was telling the local townsfolk lies about her so he could live with someone else, then reports her missing knowing full well he had the Army take care of his problem. The men that took Julia are whats known as Bloods. Vampires to you and me. This tale follows on from two other stories where the Army and its experiments have gone crazy. Its a Fascinating tale!

Julia was still in the town with her ex husband

Brett was a victim of The Project. Made into a zombie, of all things. Brett and his team of four were looking into kidnapping cases, when Julia came into his life. Julia thought her ex-husband was nuts as he was smearing her name ask over the town. When her house was broken into, she thought he did this. She was Soo very wrong. Monsters are real, apparently she was one of them now.
