The Zombie Apocalypse has been good to Sarah and David. Their marriage is better than ever. They communicate well, share responsibilities, and now, they're starting a business. ZombieBusters-for all your zombie extermination needs.
There are lots of zombies and that means lots of customers...Except one of them doesn't want the zombies dead, he wants them alive and ready for experimentation. Mad scientists make for difficult clients and this time, Sarah and David might have bitten off more than they can chew.
Book 2 in the Living with the Dead series doesn't fail to entertain. The first book found David and Sarah Walker dealing with a collapsing marriage and a zombie apocalypse. This time they're back with a strong marriage and a new business venture, Zombie Exterminators, Inc. They're joined by a slightly weird 11 year old and a creepy scientist. As soon as the second book came out, I ran to the library (okay I didn't run, but definitely got there fast) and searched for the book. It wasn't on the shelf! NO!!! I looked in the catalogue, and it was there, but in a mysterious part labeled "Popular Library." Don't fear, I figured it out and found the recognizable hot pink cover.
All around, a rollicking good zombie killing time. I do love zombie stories that don't take themselves too seriously. The series does a great job at including funny one liners and pop culture references. Very excited about this series. A quick read, but lots of fun. Definitely can't wait until the third book comes out. Alas no definite date set... Just have to wait and find out if Sarah and David find the fabled Western Wall.
