Review: Sing for the Dead by P.J. Schnyder

When I saw this cover on Netgalley, something about it really intrigued me.  I love the look on the girls face and the way the pinks and shadows were used to great effect. It still keeps my inner goth princess interested and fascinated. Of course, they say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, and they are right. Because this book was even better than the cover implies.

This story continues the plot line started in Bite Me, except this story has a new set of protagonists, Sorcha and Kayden. Sorcha is a fae warrior who has been sent to London to find out why the fae are disappearing. She has is considered a half breed; half Baen Sidhe, half  Berserker. She has the Song and Sight of the Banshee mixed with the blood lust of the berserker. Kayden is a were-leopard. He is working with, but is not part of, the London were-wolf pack trying to deal with the zombie infestation that has overtaken London.

When Kayden finds Sorcha in the Princess Diana Children's Playground holding and singing to a small being  surrounded by the pieces and parts of zombie parts littering the area, he is intrigued enough to risk her blades and offer assistance. As it turns out Sorcha will be key in putting together clues to figuring out what or who is being the zombies that are changing tactics and becoming more and more of an intelligent menace.

This book picks up shortly after the end of the first book in the series and was a wonderful addition to the series. I like the twists and turns that the story line further down the rabbit hole of a Zombiefied London. I gave this book 4 stars on Goodreads.

Book Two of London Undead

Kayden, a lone were-leopard allied with the London werewolf pack to keep the zombie infestation in check, is used to working solo—until he discovers a beautiful fae woman surrounded by the aftermath of battle. He’s immediately drawn to Sorcha, but quickly discovers she’s much more than a pretty face.

Half Bean Sidhe and half berserker, Sorcha trained over centuries to become the perfect warrior. She agrees to work with local weres to investigate a new type of zombie capable of coordinated attacks—and is partnered with Kayden. He’s strong, darkly handsome and completely unafraid of her. And his kiss fills her with insatiable desire instead of bloodlust.

As Kayden and Sorcha work together, their attraction grows and their deepest scars are bared to each other. But with the force behind the deadly new zombies poised to overwhelm the city, Sorcha can only pray that the next time her bloodlust strikes, Kayden isn’t among the fallen…
