Philadelphia 1876. The Dead are rising. A zombie delivers a letter to Eleanor Fitt. Whoever controls the Dead Army has her brother. She avoids her mother’s choice of husband for the lab of Spirit Hunters, including the maddeningly stubborn yet handsome Daniel. The situation threatens her reputation, and the lives of everyone in the city.
1. How do you think you would react to the Dead walking around in your city?
I would probably freak out and cry. I am definitely not equipped to bring down zombies. Zombies creep me out. I would most likely hide behind my hubby who would gladly take down all the Zombie hordes he could. He would have a lot of fun. If I survived the first few weeks, I think then, I’d be able to help bring down the zombies….
2. What do you think about the Dead? Are you glad it isn’t too Zombie-ish, or were you hoping for a more Zombie-esque theme?
I think it was the perfect amount. I’m not a big zombie person, which is why it has taken me so long to read this series. But there wasn’t enough to where I was scared to read it. So, it was definitely a good amount, I’d say.
3. How do you feel about Eleanor as a character?
I LOVE HER! I think she is sassy and kick ass! Someone that I would definitely aspire to if I was in this world!
