Nick is a smart alecky momma's boy with a good heart. One of the funniest characters I've ever read! Along with a cast of quirky friends, Nick's world gets turned upside down by hordes of flesh eating zombies. As he attempts to save the world from a zombie plague, Nick begins to learn more about himself and his destiny. Along the journey he forms new friendships and a star-crossed romance with a mysteriously beautiful girl. This is one roller-coaster ride of a novel filled with tons of action and sarcastic wit. My biggest issue with this book is that you come across so many characters that it becomes difficult to keep up with them; I found myself flipping back to remind myself who someone was and how they related to Nick's character. Overall, I look forward to the sequel. ...more

Their new family situation tests the boundaries of love and leaves the reader painfully waiting for a sequel.
Initially, I admit that I judged this book by its cover. The image of the blond girl on the cover with a scripted title on her neck led me to believe that this was going to be some vapid teen romance novel - like the vampire version of the "Hills" or something. Boy, was I totally wrong. I forced myself to crack open the novel and once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. I read the whole book in one sitting. What a great story! It had a perfect mix of (steamy) romance, mystery, action and suspense. I thought the dialogue was witty and the relationship between AJ and Ryan was very realistic (haha...aside from the supernatural twist of course). IF YOU'RE A SUCKER FOR SUPERNATURAL TEEN ROMANCE READ THIS BOOK - YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED. I've recommended it to many friends who have all become fans of this book and the author.
Now as promised the oh-so-fitting theme song to the Brady Bunch (read the book and you'll get it):
"Here's the story of a lovely lady Who was bringing up three very lovely girls. All of them had hair of gold, like their mother, The youngest one in curls.
Here's the store, of a man named Brady, Who was busy with three boys of his own, They were four men, living all together, Yet they were all alone.
Till the one day when the lady met this fellow And they knew it was much more than a hunch, That this group would somehow form a family. That's the way we all became the Brady Bunch. The Brady Bunch,
That's the way we all became the Brady Bunch. The Brady Bunch."...more
