Overview

The living dead, living it up.

Jake and Amanda have started to get the hang of their undead life of crime. They're totally in love, they have a trunk stocked with guinea pigs (aka zombie snacks), and they've picked up a new psychic friend who just may be their ticket into Iowa, where a cure for the zombie virus is rumored to be waiting.

Ex-government zombie hunter CASS can hardly believe she's aiding and abetting two undead fugitives. And she has to get over her stupid crush on Jake before Amanda literally bites her head off.

But once they cross the border into Iowa, things take a turn for the worse. Jake, Amanda, and Cass must contend with an unlikely zombie warlord, brain-dead ghouls, and their own awkward love triangle if they're going to make it out alive. But they never expected that in searching for the undead cure, they'd somehow find the meaning of life—well, unlife—in an eat-or-be-eaten world.

Editorial Reviews

Booklist
“Features characters shambling toward personal identity in sweet, funny, and incisive ways. Zombie fans will find this debut full of (undead) heart.”
Kirkus Reviews
2014-07-01
Zombies Jake and Amanda head to Iowa for a hoped-for cure, psychic ex–government agent Cass in tow.As in the first book (Eat, Brains, Love, 2012), the narration alternates between underachiever Jake, kicking himself at his good fortune to have become beloved of the superhot Amanda, and insecure, maladjusted Cass, reluctantly acknowledging that her psychic attraction to Jake is both insane and hopeless. Iowa is something of a new Wild West, all access points barricaded to keep zombies (and the dwindling human population) in and humans out. Once on the other side, a series of misadventures separates the teens, forcing Cass and Amanda into an uneasy truce and sending Jake on his own into Des Moines, shambling after the mythic cure. Des Moines, under the control of zombie overlord Lord Wesley, consciously recalls the horrors of such catastrophically lawless zones as Mogadishu, though with a better soundtrack. Hart balances humor and heartbreak with expert precision, Jake’s slacker voice lending itself to some pretty funny reflections: “What if [Amanda and Cass had] been eaten? Or, well, what if one of them had eaten the other? And the noneaten one was all mad at me?” But Hart never lets readers forget that this is the zombie apocalypse, man, with all the spilling entrails that entails, and the emotions ring true.These zombies are so touchingly human it’s impossible not to love them. (Horror. 14-18)
