This book is the second book in the Reanimation Files. I have read multiple books from this author, including the first book in this series, and I was not disappointed in this book. You cannot read this a standalone. This book picks up where the first book ends, so it will make a lot more sense if you have read that book first. Plus it ends in a huge cliffhanger. There is violence and sex. The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here in the review. There is plenty of action as well as twists and turns in the book. In the first book I really liked Micah, but after reading this book I can't stand him or his actions. And poor Selene as so much happens to her in this book. Requiem for the Living is definitely a much darker story than Affairs of the Dead was. I really enjoyed this book and storyline. I look forward to reading more of A. J. Locke's books, including the next book in this series. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review though I would have purchased this if I had not.

Requiem for the Living is definitely NOT a stand-alone novel. If you try to read it without reading Affairs of the Dead you will be totally lost. As it is... I read the first book and I still had to remind myself quite a few times about who the characters were, and what was happening to Selene. I would actually recommend reading them one right after the other. I really enjoyed Selene's character. The idea of people who are essentially chosen to help the dead pass on to the other side is intriguing. And that having this "job" could have the horrible side effects that Selene is experiencing adds this dark twist. The story actually reminded me of a (brief) TV series,Dead Like Me), that I LOVED. The ending of Requiem for the Living was not what I was expecting. After finishing I actually had to take a moment to let it settle... because I was convinced I knew the ending before getting to it. All I can say is that Selene's character surprised me more than once.
