*crying because I really want this book and need more Jane McKeene in my life*
At least once a week, I visit this page and look for news with great longing in my soul.

edited 5/2/2019: We have a title! And a publication year! And joy in our hearts!

edited 8/17/2019: That. Cover. My. Heart.

edited 10/18/2019: That. Summary. Chills literally up and down my spine and arms and legs and all extremities. Surely the ARCs are about to be released?

Junstina Ireland did not come to play with us in book 1: alternative Historical zombie sci-fi where the Zombie apocalypse abruptly ends the Civil War and black people are free but subject to a caste system that places them as trained zombie fighters to protect white people. I'm ready for book 2 and hoping for a Netflix series.

I am on pins and needles waiting for this!!!

I didn't really like the first one, but the cover of the first book is too amazing for me to let this series go to waste

Ireland follows up Dread Nation with a novel that finds Jane and Katherine mostly on the road, travelling from settlement to settlement, trying to stay ahead of the shamblers. In fact, this is really all that happens for the entire first half of the book, which gets very repetitive. But halfway in, there's a twist that makes it all a bit more interesting. Not sure if I'd be up for a third novel unless Ireland had a really good plotline. This one seemed to be a bit lacking. Review from e-galley.

I was so excited after reading the first couple of chapters of this book! Excellent asexual representation, plot was compelling... and then up pops casual anti-Indigenous racism *again*. I hoped that Ireland would do better in this book following the criticisms of its prequel, but unfortunately, she doesn’t seem to have. Deeply disappointing. An opportunity missed.

This conclusion to the story Ireland started in DREAD NATION is just as exciting, terrifying and thoughtful as the original.

Part I intrigued me. Part II wrecked me. Justina Ireland is doing what the other girls can’t do.

I have to write a real review, but until then: this was an excellent sequel and I’m so glad I read it. Go preorder/order it for more Jane and Katherine.
