Edward Grey is a medical student by day, necromancer by night. He lives alone with the first zombie he ever raised, his childhood cat, Boo. Edward’s life is simple: studying medicine, training his necromantic powers with his mentor, Mariel, and having weekly dinners with his parents. When he finds a very attractive corpse in a park and brings it home to reanimate, he creates a sassy, free-willed zombie who believes Edward is the one who murdered him.
With no memory of his former life, Edward names the zombie Kit and tries to win his trust. Kit slowly adjusts to his new un-life with Edward’s help, though he’s still suspicious of Edward’s role in his death and is convinced that Edward is hiding his former identity. Edward is very attracted to Kit, but understands why Kit doesn’t trust him. As they become closer to one another, Kit turns to Edward for comfort and love. The fragile trust they’ve built together will be tested when Kit unexpectedly regains his memory and seeks revenge on his murderers.
This was a very entertaining book, I had a good time reading it. I did expect to it to be a little funnier than it actually was but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
I liked both main characters, they were fun to read, both very likable. I wouldn’t expect this, since I’m not really a cat person, but one of the things I loved the most about it were the cute cats, they were so sweet. I liked the most the vulnerable moments Kit had, it seemed really frustrating being on his situation.
The plot was nice. I had a little trouble getting myself into it and there were moments where I lost a little bit of interest, but near the end it got very exciting and I couldn’t stop reading. It was nice to see a different kind of zombie story. Not that I don’t like zombies, I don’t particularity love them either, but it was great to see one that went beyond what’s expected. I had a little issue about some parts of the plot that felt a little unexplained, but in general it was a good book.
