But when Molly’s birthday comes along her entire world is turned upside down, first the mean girls crash her party then her would be boyfriend hit his head and dies. Molly is able to grab some of his soul and put it back into his body. Relieved that, that crisis is averted she soon finds that life has more in store for her, she finds out her dad isn’t her biological dad and now she is being shipped off to a boarding school for necromancers. All this is just the beginning of the story as Molly’s whole world begins to tumble down.

Ok so as I was reading this novel I kept thinking “This is so obvious how can Molly be so stupid?” Boy was I wrong what I thought was so obvious was completely off the mark, yes I admit those thoughts bit me in the butt. I loved this book it was full of action, romance, and zombies what more could a girl want? The fact that zombies and necromancers are an everyday thing in this book was worth the read in itself, when you add in the Ancient Egyptian lore it makes it even better, then Michele Vail decides to combine all of this with a strong female lead this becomes an amazing novel. If this isn’t enough to keep you reading the series Michele Vail throws in an ending that is full of surprises ensuring your continued interest. I definitely recommend this book, whether you like zombies or young adult this is sure to be a fun read.

Once Dead, Twice Shy by Kim Harrison Review

Once Dead, Twice Shy

Madison Avery Trilogy Book One

By Kim Harrison

On the night Madison was attending her prom, she hooked up with a guy who was not her date, left with him, and then he killed her. It turns out the guy was a reaper, and before he could take her soul she snatched his amulet which has allowed her to appear normal, well as normal as a girl with purple hair and skull earrings can be. Now she is determined to get her body back and put an end to her curse once and for all.

 Once Dead, Twice Shy (Madison Avery, #1)

I picked up this book from the online library that I frequent because it sounded interesting and I have read some of Kim Harrison’s work in the past, The Hollow Series. I didn’t anticipate how much fun this book would turn out to be, the main character for instance was one of a kind with a quirky sense of humor and struggling to be happy with whom she is, quickly becoming a highly relatable and entertaining character. It only took me a couple of hours to read this book, the audio version is only six hours long, making this a quick and enjoyable read when you have a couple of hours to kill. The only problem I had was that this trilogy started with a short story in Prom Nights From Hell anthology, I have not read this book and I didn’t realize this walking into it, so the Novel picks up right away from where the short story left off (or so it seems) though the author does a brilliant job in catching you up after a while the beginning is a bit confusing. Making in a re-print the publisher will add in the short story, fingers crossed!
