Molly is ready for more nonstop, undead action in this follow-up to Dead City, which Kirkus Reviews described as “a fast-paced read for those who like their zombies with just a little fright.”When Molly Bigelow discovered that zombies shared New York with humans, she didn’t think life could get more shocking. Then she learned that her mother was once one of the greatest zombie killers ever—and she discovered that her dead mother is not technically dead at all (although she isn’t alive, either). Molly’s efforts to keep these secrets and to help her Omega team track down the identity of the original thirteen zombies will take her from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade to New Year’s Eve in Times Square. Her loyalties to friends and family will be put to the test. And her life will be changed in ways she never could have imagined.

Blue Moon is the second book in a series about a girl named Mallory who is part of a group called Omega, who keep track of the zombies that live underneath New York City. She recently discovered in the first book that her mother is still alive, well she is undead to be specific and seems to appear when she needs her most. The only problem is she feels like she can’t tell her fellow teammates. When their new assignment leads them to tracking the original 13 undead, she finds herself in some dangerous situations. I loved how this book pulled in more of the background of how this undead, underground city came about. There’s a lot of action and mystery involved in this series and I’ve really enjoyed getting to know all the characters and more about how the world works.

Verdict:

A serious, yet different type of zombie book, one full of great characters and an interesting background that peaked my interest.
