They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. But sometimes, under extreme circumstances, it's exactly that which kills you that makes you stronger. And faster. And a member to a new, elite race of zombies.
Armed with a current address for his biological grandfather and a slightly unusual, yet loyal best friend, Doyle Hawthorne sets out to discover the truth about his past. But answers don't come easily, and the closer Doyle arrives to his destination, the more confusing things become. Disturbing alterations to his physical appearance as well as to his personality flicker on and off as Doyle searches for a logical explanation.
Despite the increasing severity of these uncontrolled flare-ups, Doyle is determined to keep his first date with Addy - a beautiful, young woman he has met upon his arrival into town. After narrowly subduing his raging impulses, Doyle quickly decides not even death itself can keep him from her. Unfortunately, he is about to test that theory.
Once initiated, nothing can alter the process of shading - the term given to the three distinct phases of becoming a higher classification of zombie, commonly referred to as "royals". Doyle must learn to control his tendency toward violence as well as his newfound royal powers if there is any chance of protecting those he loves from a mad scientist, the government, the colony of royals, and most importantly... himself.

Heading towards a colony of zombies, ahh . . . that's right brain chomping creepy dead people well not people just yucky dead thing. But some are actually using their brains, no. . . not the zombies, or is it? So entertaining, the right intensity and darkness yet comical antidote. I enjoyed the two main characters Doyle and Chuck, friends like no other both are a breath of fresh air to this book. Doyle sets out on a journey to find answers of course Chuck in tow and the answer they sought, well you just have to read the book to find out. This zombie story was different from others I had read, virus and activation of the virus, dreams and the many family secrets. All in all I really enjoyed it!!! I received a free book that I had won through BookLikes Giveaway. Thank you, Darlene Cruz P.S. I forgot to mention the author's writing style, what can I say but perfect and very descriptive not boring just engaging to keep me reading and guessing. The next book should be exciting I feel it in my bones!
