Dead Reckoning by Lackey and Edghill - ADVISABLE

Lackey, Mercedes and Edghill, Rosemary Dead Reckoning, 324 pgs. Bloomsbury, 2012.

Language - PG (12 swears, 0 "f"), Sexual Content - G; Violence - PG; 

Jett's mission: find her brother Phillip. Gibbons' mission: discover the real reason for mysterious disappearances out West. White Fox's mission: find out what happened to another soldier's mother. None of them expected to be brought together by such an unexpected discovery: Zombies. 

I'm not a big fan of zombies or steampunk, but Dead Reckoning brought the two together nicely. The different personalities of the ragtag team made for an exciting story even when there wasn't much going on action-wise. I hope Lackey and Edghill are working on a sequel because readers will be looking for more.
