Dead Is a Battlefield (Dead Is Series #6) by Marlene Perez

Jessica Walsh is starting her freshman year at Nightshade High and trying to forget
about the tragic events surrounding her brother’s graduation. She wants to have a normal
high school experience. But that’s easier said than done in Nightshade.
There’s a new guy at school who seems to be turning the girls into lovesick zombies.
And Jessica has other worries—like her crush on a cute but moody lead singer,
and the mysterious tattoo that appeared on her arm one day that lets her know whenever
there is trouble brewing. Jessica learns she’s a Virago, a woman warrior chosen to
fight evil whenever it threatens her hometown. But does a lowly freshman really have
what it takes to keep Nightshade safe?

I really was kind of upset that daisy wasnt the main character in this book, but i still gave it a chance, and boy am i glad i did! Marlene perez did it again caught my attention from tthe start. Its kind of refreshing to get a different persons point of view and have a new mystery involved in this book!! All i know now, is that i cant wait for the next book to come out! DEAD IS A KILLER TUNE!!!!!

Im sitting in my Drivers Ed class and just finished Dead is a Battlefield. I loved the book. At first when I found out that it had different characters in it i was kinda skeptical about it. One if my friends told me about the books when I was in 8th grade and she was in the 7th grade. I read through the first book pretty fast and kept reading them until I had to wait on the next one to come out. Im so excited for Dead is a Killer Tune!! :D

Marlene Perez has done it again! The new book in the series of Dead is... well amazing! It has a fresh new main character as Sean, Samantha's boyfriends sister Jessi, but has the same problems that Daisy and her sisters had. I can't wait for the next book. Everyone needs to read this!

Ok, I get making a spin off of a series or focusing on other characters(this girl wasn't even a main character barely mentioned previously), but she should have made a new series from this one. Getting all of us Die Hard Daisy and Ryan fans excited over a new book for nothing. Don't get me wrong I'm sure it will be a great story, but I feel it will leave something to be desired. Just because Daisy is college aged, doesn't mean they cant continue. Morganville Vamps is huge and she was in college. Oh well what can I say...

I found the dead is series really good and was afraid that it had ended. But reading this made the book even better than before and I really really really really hope that marlene perez continues to make these books!

Yes, people, Daisy is gone from the series as she begins college so quit your moaning. This is, after all, #6 in the series and the protagonist, Jessica, is just beginning her scholastic career at Nightshade High School. Weird things are happening in town (no surprise) just as Jessica learns she is a Virago, a female warrior. She struggles to find time to complete homework and hang with her friends while spending nights on the lookout for evil folks. Romance and zombies round out the story. Thanks to Puget Sound Council for the review copy.

I love Marlene's books. This series was actually something my daughter started to read and I picked it up to read in between my books. I love them just as much as my daughter.

This is the 1st book in a new series and has new characters as well as some of the minor characters from the first 5 Black is books. Though I was a bit disappointed at first that Daisy Giordano was not our main character, it made sense that we follow a new character’s story. We get back into the YA age group again and have all of the fun and irritations that go along with it. I am a big fan of Perez’s previous Nightshade novels and this one delivers as well. Our Protagonist is spunky with plenty of obstacles to overcome.The main plot of this story is the mystery, but there is a romantic subplot. This is loaded with innocent fun clean enough for tweens and great for everyone who would like a fast getaway.
