Ed Undead: The Chronicles of a Teenage Zombie (Ed Undead Series Book 1)Ed never believed that he would have to live through a zombie apocalypse. One day he was Ed Kirk, a normal sixteen-year-old boy with a loving family, a beautiful girlfriend, and a full life ahead of him. Now he's on the run from zombies, being hunted by a dark force that threatens his very existence, all the while trying to escape his hometown and find help. Oh, yeah, one more thing: Ed is a zombie too!"Ed Undead is a strong story that never bores, and Ed, the 16 year old almost zombie, shows us what true courage is. I give it 4 stars and a place in the Awesome Indies listing. Ed and Lisa are great characters to spend time with, even if it is in a zombie infested town." AvidReader"I loved this book. Ed is an everyday guy who has hidden leadership abilities that are developing throughout the story. When placed into a bad situation with the zombies he still keeps it together because Ed is a hero. Lisa Jane is strong, smart and a very good second who can kick butt all by herself. This book was a page turner because I couldn't wait to read what happened next and I cheered them on throughout the story. It is a book that anyone can read and I would read it again this time next year." Cloey.k"This book was captivating. I was drawn in from the first page and found it hard to put down. This is a definite must read even if you aren't a zombie fan." m pollardGrab your copy today!Book order:Ed Undead: The Chronicles of a Teenage ZombieEd Undead: Dead Like MeEd and his girlfriend, Lisa Jane, are now living day by day, still fighting off zombies and trying to make it to Canada, where there is a promise of hope at the CDC.

It seems that this will be the year of zombies for me. I don't think I ever particularly cared about them until this year, when I read Zombicorn by John Green and saw REC3 (I recommend it to anyone who would appreciate a cheesy, violent spanish movie about a disease that turns people into flesh eating monsters from Hell).
This was such a fast-paced survival story set in a world where a plague as turn almost everyone into zombies. The main character, Ed, is slowly turning into one and he's fighting, alongside his girlfriend, to find a cure for his condition. In my opinion, he was a really cute character, and it was a pleasure to read from his point of view. But he also felt a bit unrealistic at times, like maybe he was too perfect, too much of a good guy.
I did love his relationship with Lisa, his girlfriend. You could really feel the love they had for each other, and nothing could keep them apart, not even (partial) death. Overall, it was kind of cheesy, but just enough that it didn't make me hate it and gave the story the cute moments and pauses it sometimes needed.
The zombies they run into in their journey were people they once knew and the flash backs Ed gets at times really show the realness of the situation and it all felt very personal and emotional. It truly gave this story another side to look into: the side that breaks your heart when you think 'What if I was in this situation?' It was so moving and sad, and it might have been my favourite part about Ed Undead and the one I don't feel there's anything negative to point out. It just shows how a teenager would see this situation and deal with everything he knew gone.
I would have liked to get to know a bit more about some of the side characters, like the mother and daughter they run into. Sometimes I forgot they were there because everything kind of revolved around Ed and Lisa.
Also, Ed's sister and father really got to my nerves, but that is not even a bad thing, it was exactly like I felt you were supposed to feel about them and I think the author did that very well.
Finally, I absolutely loved the ending. I wasn't expecting it at all, but I feel like I should have. It caught me by surprise and left me there wishing I had the next book in my hands.
I will definitely be reading Dead Like Me, because this book raised so many questions that were left unanswered. Overall completely recommend it, especially to a younger public.
