In the first book Molly finds out she isn't just a smart awkward kid, but an Omega. A secret team that helps to police the New York zombie population. And she finds out a big secret about a past tragedy in her own life, too. In this book her team is in more danger as they try to track down and monitor the 13 original zombies, who are old and tough.

I rated the first book in this series as Essential and this second book was provided to me by the author. Am I biased!? YES I AM! And why not?! As a school librarian I am always in desperate need of great books that are student magnets, parent friendly, and well written. If a book can live up to these high expectations –well yes I am biased!! One of my favorite things about this author is that his plots are multi-faceted, we get to know the characters and their lives. Zombies are still wildly popular, so this is a great place to start your collection. There is a waiting list for my copies of book #1 and this book will certainly continue that trend…along with a profound interest in next book in the series.

I have to read this one soon. I think that this series will outlast the zombie trend and do well for a long time.
