Overview


The phenomenon that's been sweeping the country seems to be here to stay. Not only are the teenagers who have come back from their graves still here, but newlydeads are being unearthed all the time. While scientists look for answers and politicians take their stands, the undead population of Oakville have banded together in a group they're calling the Sons of Romero, hoping to find solidarity in segregation.

Phoebe Kendall may be alive, but she feels just as lost and alone as her dead friends. Just when she reconciled herself to having feelings for a zombie -- her Homecoming date Tommy Williams -- her friend Adam is murdered taking a bullet that was meant for her. Things get even more confusing when Adam comes back from the grave. Now she has romantic interest in two dead boys; one who saved her life, and one she can't seem to live without.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
While those familiar with the first "Generation Dead" novel won't make this mistake, I initially expected this to be a vampire story. After all, the cover art shows an ivory-skinned, blood-red-lipped goth girl lying in a coffin with a robust-looking football player poised to kiss her. But, no, this novel focuses on perhaps the most-reviled type of undead creatures around: zombies. No one knows why, but young adults who have died recently have been reanimating minutes, hours, days and even (for the very unfortunate) weeks after their deaths. Main character Phoebe Kendall is not one of the zombies (or "differently biotic") herself, but she has many friends who are. She was even dating one, the popular football player Tommy, in the first book of this series. That relationship ended tragically when her best friend Adam took a bullet meant for her. Adam reanimated, but with very limited abilities to speak or move. Remembering Tommy's theory that love could be why some zombies can function better than others, Phoebe has spent nearly all of her free time focused on helping Adam. This love triangle is just part of a larger story about discrimination, friendship and human rights. Readers should be prepared for bigotry, violence, deception, and more. Like so many series books, Daniel Waters' latest ends in media res. More questions are raised than answered in this novel, and readers are sure to wonder where the story is headed. Reviewer: Heidi Hauser Green
VOYA - Ed Goldberg
This novel picks up immediately after Generation Dead (Disney/Hyperion, 2008/VOYA June 2008) ends. Previously Adam intercepted a bullet meant for Tommy, a "differently biotic" zombie. Adam dies and resurrects. Currently he is trying to relearn speech and body movement. Phoebe, whose life Adam saved, is devoted to assisting him in his recovery, while trying to sort out her feelings for Adam and Tommy. A zombie faction is pulling innocent nighttime pranks to call attention to their plight. Tommy, a born leader, travels to Washington DC to lobby for zombie rights. There is a growing backlash against zombies, led by Reverend Mather, whose minions are also pulling pranks, albeit more serious. Finally the zombies learn that Alish and Angela Hunter, their "friends," are performing dangerous experiments on them. A nighttime zombie prank turns disastrous, setting the stage for the third book in the series. This sequel will primarily attract fans of the first book and zombie lovers and does not stand well on its own. Few new characters are introduced. Water's writing is simple and in some cases silly, such as calling zombies "worm burgers." His attempt at aligning zombies' dialogue and thoughts to their jerky actions and speech is annoying, but there is action enough to interest readers. The plot parallels that of Robin Wasserman's Skinned trilogy, covering societal reaction to somewhat-human beings. Conflict, however, which should drive the book, is minimal. All cautions aside, there seems to be a fan base for this series. Use judgment. Reviewer: Ed Goldberg
School Library Journal
Gr 8–10—As this sequel to Generation Dead (Hyperion, 2008) opens, Adam is just beginning to "regenerate" after diving in front of Phoebe, the girl he always loved, when she was going to take a bullet aimed at her currently undead boyfriend. He is having a difficult time gaining control of his speech and movements, while Phoebe is under the impression that a kiss from a "beating heart" who truly loves him can help speed the process. The story then reveals a whole zombie activist movement, as well as an anti-zombie conspiracy. Taken on a superficial level, the story is an action-packed romp through the zombie subculture, including such products as "Z, the body spray for the active undead male." Taken at a more cerebral level, the novel comments on societal attitudes toward race, disability, and sexual orientation. It could also spark conversation about the afterlife as it raises a disturbing question: If there really is a God, has he turned the zombie kids away? The book is supported by an amazingly well-maintained Web site, but its downfall is that it bites off more than readers can chew. There are too many characters, too many subplots, and too many switches in perspective. Kiss of Life clearly screams for a sequel—if not two or three. With so much going on, it is easy to lose track of which character is which, never mind who is dead or undead. That being said, it's a must-buy if the first title is popular.—Leah Krippner, Harlem High School, Machesney Park, IL
Kirkus Reviews
It's been one month since Adam took a bullet to the chest and saved Phoebe, the girl of his dreams, in Generation Dead (2008). Now a zombie (er, differently biotic), he doesn't know if Phoebe's affection is out of guilt or a love that neither will acknowledge. There's a lot going on: A string of crimes is blamed on the zombie population, causing a greater rift between the "dbs" (differently biotics) and "trads" (traditional biotics); a mystery surrounds the experiments taking place at the Hunter Foundation, an organization dedicated to uniting both sides of the living spectrum; and Phoebe is torn between Adam and Tommy, her first zombie crush. Adam's intermittent first-person narration reveals his difficult transformation from monosyllabic utterances to more trad-like behaviors. Although the first book poked fun at the relationship between the living and undead, this slower-paced and less witty continuation focuses on the underground (no pun intended) zombie culture. Dedicated Generation Dead fans are sure to enjoy it, however, especially the conclusion's sudden string of events and unanswered questions that shout "sequel." (Fiction. YA)

    Well, well, well..

    I didn't even know this was out! My friend bought the first one and I couldn't put it down... Her dilemma between these 2 guys is very relatble, but I have to say even though the ending was shocking and exciting, it was sort of dissapointing. I hope this one redeems the series.

    Amazing Series

    I read the first book after meeting Daniel Waters at my local library. That was an amazing story that I couldn't put down. My only regret is reading the book after I met Dan because now I can't yell at him for killing Adam, luckily it seems he comes back in this book. I've waited since August for this book, it just sucks that I'll have to wait until May for it to be published. You're an amazing author Dan! Keep up the great work!

    Kiss of Life

    Phoebe's trying to adjust to life after Adam's death - and zombie return. She doesn't really know how to act around him, but she tries desperately to make him happy. He's having a hard time getting back his range of movements and talking normally again. Still, she wants to be there. Adam thinks differently, he wants her to live again - not to be consumed with the guilt she feels. But he can't find the words to express his thoughts.
    Phoebe also feels guilty about Tommy. She knows he still has feelings for her, but she can't even wrap her head around her own emotions. All she knows is that she needs to be strong for Adam. When Tommy decides to leave and trek across the country educating people about zombies, Phoebe knows its for the best but she can't help feeling hurt by his actions. Can she find herself again and still be with Adam?

    A love triangle becomes messy with 2 undead boys and one living girl, but it also equals a fabulous zombie romance. But there's much more to this book than romance. People are afraid of the undead and start attacking them. It's starting to happen in Oakville. Tensions are rising and it might be time for the Zombies to fight for their way of life - which makes for an interesting take on prejudice

    Loved it!!

    The phenomenon that’s been sweeping the country seems to be here to stay. Not only are the teenagers who have come back from their graves still here, but newlydeads are being unearthed all the time. While scientists look for answers and politicians take their stands, the undead population of Oakville have banded together in a group they’re calling the Sons of Romero, hoping to find solidarity in segregation.

    Phoebe Kendall may be alive, but she feels just as lost and alone as her dead friends. Just when she reconciled herself to having feelings for a zombie -- her Homecoming date Tommy Williams -- her friend Adam is murdered taking a bullet that was meant for her. Things get even more confusing when Adam comes back from the grave. Now she has romantic interest in two dead boys; one who saved her life, and one she can't seem to live without.

    The story opens with Adam dealing with his new "life" as a zombie. Some of the newly-dead come back more agile & talkative and then some have a much harder time adjusting to being undead. Adam falls into the latter. He can barley speak, barley walk, and his thoughts are all jumbled. Phoebe, on the other hand, is torn between guilt and affection for him. She's sad he sacrificed his life for her, but she's still deeply moved he has feelings for her, something she never knew until after his death. Their relationship has its ups and downs throughout the story all while the zombie generation begins to make rebellious protests (a sort of zombie revolution) to the way they're accepted in society.

    I love when you like the first book in a series and then you read the second book . . . and enjoy it ever more! I devoured this story. I got so caught up in Adam's development and Phoebe's torn feelings between Adam and Tommy that I found it hard to put down. It's an emotional tale and you really see the characters change from chapter to chapter. The ending probably wasn't as gut-wrenching as the first book, but it still gets the tension going and gets the reader excited for book three - Passing Strange

    Likes: All the visits to the zombie dance club AFTERMATH in New York.

    Dislikes: Discovering the Hunter Foundation's experiment of how to "cure" being undead.

    My favorite of the series

    I love this book. I could not put it down. I loved that it was a continuation from Adam and Phoebe's point of view. They have a very strong bond. It kind of reminds me of Twilight's Jacob and Bella's friendship. I actually got a lot of my friends hooked on the generation dead series. I can't wait for the the 4th book to come out.

    Amazing Read

    Waters is working on a wonderful series of a girl named Phoebe who lost her boyfriend and best friend to a zombi killer and is now a living dead person. This is the second of many books due to release in this series. With the highs and lows, Waters makes the reader feel every second of every of his novel, through the hard and easy times Phoebe is with the love of her life in Adam, she stays beside and supports him unconditonally, despite others that may look down upon her for it. Phoebe shows what true love and unconditional sacrifice is and how it can change someones life and make them better people for it. I highly recommend this for any sci-fi lover who loves books with a bit of fantasy and also a real life lesson to them.

    "Wow," Trent said. "It isn't . . . easy . . . being young and undead . . . in America."

    The number of undead teens is increasing. At first it was considered a unique, localized event, but now it's happening everywhere. Tommy Williams and his website Mysocalledundeath.com and the Hunter Foundation are now known far and wide. The undead, or "differently biotic," have been accepted by some but are still outcasts to others.

    Phoebe's life has changed. She still loves Tommy, but since Adam died saving her life, she has dedicated all her time and energy to helping him gain his full potential as a member of the undead. His progress is slow, and having Tommy acting petty and jealous doesn't help the situation. At least she has the support of her friends (living and undead) at the Hunter Foundation standing behind her decision to help the two factions of their community adjust to the changing world.

    Tommy's efforts to help his fellow undead members of society adjust have him deciding to take his show on the road. With more and more differently biotic needing a support system, he realizes that many do have Internet access to get help from his blog. His decision to travel to spread the word means he will need assistance from those he is leaving behind. Phoebe and her friends agree to manage the website and blog about things from their perspective.

    Prejudice and intolerance of the undead teens is increasing, making the job of protecting them even harder. Since the fire at the Haunted House, they are in more danger than ever. There are mysterious white vans traveling the countryside and groups of violent haters threatening everyone's peace and safety. Law enforcement, including the FBI, are incarcerating differently biotics and not even attempting to recognizing any rights they might be due.

    KISS OF LIFE continues the adventure begun in GENERATION DEAD. With all the vampire/zombie novels available to today, author Daniel Waters gives the genre a new twist. Combining the paranormal with the concept of prejudice against this new generation provides a bit of depth to the usual zombie tale. This will be an interesting series to keep an eye on as it evolves.

    Life is always about choices. It's about Phoebe Kendall befriending Karen DeSonne, the "differently biotic" girl next door and choosing to go to homecoming with Tommy Williams, the "differently biotic" boy next door. It's about Tommy standing immobile when Pete Martinsburg pointed a gun at Phoebe's head. It's about Adam taking a bullet to save Phoebe. And, even though his "traditionally biotic" life might be over, it's about Adam coming back--maybe for himself but probably for Phoebe, the girl he loves.

    Adam isn't alone.

    All over the country, dead teenagers are waking up and rejoining the living with varying degrees of success. No one knows why some teenagers come back and some don't. The only certainty is that everything changed the moment these zombies began trying to reconnect with the world of the living.

    Adam's death and return have rocked the city of Oakvale, Connecticut to its core. What really happened that night? Is it murder if the the victim can get up and walk away? Does a dead person deserve the same rights as a living person? Wouldn't things be simpler if all of the zombies would just go away?

    Vandalism and social protest abound as some of the zombies try to remind Oakvale that they aren't going anywhere. But instead of raising awareness, the Sons of Romero might just be putting a bigger target on their differently biotic backs.

    While Phoebe struggles to bring Adam back as much as she can, Tommy and Karen try to act as voices of reason among the zombie community. But the time for reason might be over in Kiss of Life (2009) by Daniel Waters.

    This sequel picks up shortly after the disastragic conclusion of Generation Dead leaving all of the characters to deal with the fallout, and the grief, in their own ways.

    Don't let the blurb or excerpt fool you. Both try to play up the Dramatic Love Triangle angle to lethal effect* but Kiss of Life is smarter than that. Waters continues to use the dichotomy between traditionally and differently biotic people to examine matters of tolerance and equality in a clever, original way.

    In fact, even though this book is necessarily about Adam and his return, the book's main event is really the polarizing nature of the newly dead arriving in Oakvale (and the rest of the country) and their own attempts to raise awareness and get some rights. Social protest is a big part of the story but so is, for lack of a better term, the meaning of life as all of the differently biotic characters try to make sense of what their returns really mean for them and, in a greater context, for the world at large.

    I always said that Generation Dead was a really smart book. If possible, Kiss of Life is even more on point. It's exciting, it gets under your skin, and it's socially aware. Waters' characters are charming and terrifying as he shows events not only from the heroes' viewpoints but also from that of a villain. Nothing is black and white here. Add to that a dramatic finish and one of the most heart-wrenching love stories ever and you have something really exceptional.

    Interesting Sequeal!

    Phoebe has been spending all her time with Adam since his sacrafice to save her life. Her relationship with Tommy is complicated since then. She loves Adam as a freind but she also loves Tommy more. She feels guilty that Adam showed hir love to her by taking a bullet for her. Pete the zombie hating guy who tried to kill Phoebe but missed and killed Adam instead is doing communtiy service to make up for his crime. This is a really good book. Its alot like Twighlight. Bella cant choose between Adam or Tommy just like Bella couldnt choose between Edward or Jacob. I really recommend it.

    Disappointing and a Snore...

    So here I am thinking this book will be great and defiantly better than the first (the first was just utterly boring). I was thinking of giving the Generation Dead Series a second chance. Well, guess who payed the price? ME! This book was a snore. Though well written, nothing really exciting happened. Tommy left, Phoebe has new boyfriend, more useless conversation between the characters...... yeah who cares. I was hoping there would more drama between Tommy and Phoebe. Also, there wasn't enough plot or suspense of what the characters were going to do next. So basically the whole book was focused on Phoebe and Adam trying to work things out. Sounds cute, but in reality it was dragged on, making the book seem it was useless to read. In my case, this book hardly explained any the questions you might had from the first, not fun to read, and just plain flat out disappointing.

    Interesting read.

    The book it's self is a little slow getting started, but I really liked it. I think that it is sort of one big metaphor to racism. That might not be the intentions of the book, but it reminds me so much of the olden day racism where they had separate bathrooms, the KKK, and other things like that. Amidst all of this, there are the love stories, friendships, and enemies of teens now days. This book is not only a metaphor to racism, but I think it portrays how the majority of society makes a big controversy over anything that is "too different" for them. The series is a great read.

    Kiss of Life (Generation Dead, book #2) - Doesn't Disappoint

    Daniel Water's does again with this gripping second book from the Generation Dead series.

    Phoebe spends countless hours with Adam ever since the night he sacrificed himself to save her. The relationship with Tommy becomes complicated as she realizes that Adam is in love with her. Pete is stationed to fulfill his community service hours and counseling sessions at the Hunter Foundation, but soon Pete discovers that the Hunter Foundation is not all as it seems. There are deep, dark, and disturbing secrets behind closed doors.

    I often wonder what the author thinks when he sees the covers and summaries of his published books. Similar to Daniel Water's first book of this series - the synopses is very superficial and fails to grab the true contents within the book which in fact contain a lot of moral issues.

    I'm excited for the third book in this series which comes out in June 2010, Generation Dead: Passing Strange.

    Really good book

    This book is very good read. It is the second on in the series. This book is very close the the first one and really carries on the story. A very good book to read. You will really be wowed. It is not like twilight, very different from it story. This is kind of the story between good and evil.
