Special Dead by Patrick Freivald

zombieThis sequel to Twice Shy rocks! Ani and her mother are back, post-prompocalypse, along with a handful of teens that survived that horrible night but were infected with ZV (Zombie Virus). The novel follows this “special dead” group through a horrifying school year that includes being ostracized by their peers, dodging an awkward cult followings, and surviving the ethically corrupt Dr. Banerjee, Ani’s mother’s colleague who is desperate to find a cure for ZV and will stop at NOTHING to do so.
Patrick Freivald keeps readers in captive suspense to the very last page. As I had mentioned in my review of Twice Shy, I have zero interest in zombies; however, this book and its partner have piqued that interest and left me eager to read more on the subject.
