Book Review: Dearly Beloved
Book 2 in Gone With the Respiration
AUTHOR: Lia Habel
PUBLISHED: September 2012
GENRE: Zombies, dystopianish, steampunk
PREMISE: Nora and Bram plan their future together as the world around them deals with changing ideas about the undead.
MY REVIEW: So the thing about this book is, it's very much a second book. Meaning you can tell it's a stepping stone to get to the next one. As a result it suffers from a lot of dragging.
But if you were a fan of the first, you should be able to get into this. Granted, I sort of think the author added in too many points of views this time around. It was hard enough in the first book, in this one, there's more people added. Which I'm sorry, was unneccessary in my opinion. Also Nora and Bram get more sappy then they were in the first.
So it does suffer from second book syndrome. But it still is entertaining as the first book so I'm willing to give the author leeway in the hopes that she rewards us with a awesome third book.
WHO SHOULD READ: fans of Dearly Departed, fans of Something Strange and Deadly, zombie fans
MY RATING: Four out of Five frilly parasols
