A few months ago I was a normal girl with a normal life. But that was before my power to Settle the Undead returned and someone tried to kill me with zombies.

Now I work magic and practice kicking butt while trying to find time for pom squad and my boyfriend, Ethan, and trying NOT to think about how freaky my life has become. It can be tough. Still…things could be worse…

Oh yeah, right:
1. Feral new super-strong zombies. Check.
2. Undead psychic hottie predicting a zombie apocolypse. Check.
3. Earth-shattering secrets that could land me in Settler prison for life. Check.
4. Cheerleader vs. pom squad turf war threatening the end of the half time as we know it. Check.

I’m going to need therapy (and a cookie) if I live through the week. Unfortunately I’m learning that’s not something Zombie Queens can take for granted.

A lot of things happen in this book. Relationships are questioned, innocent characters are being blamed for crimes, family secrets are let out in the open, and zombies' butts are kicked! Undead Much carries on with Megan's story--her problems, her relationships, and her zombies.

The romance was probably the thing I liked most from this book. I'm a sucker for romance. In this novel, Ethan and Megan are undergoing a lot of difficulties in their relationship. For starters, the pressure of taking
 their relationship to the "next level" is starting to weigh down on Megan's shoulders, and she can't help but second guessing herself and their relationship all together. And then there's Cliff, the dead zombie who can't seem to be put to rest. He's a problem all on his own, making Megan think things she shouldn't be thinking about non-boyfriends.

While the rest of the novel was up to standards, at the beginnning I was worried about the novel's pace. It was really slow. But as I got deeper into the story it sped up and made my reading experience a whole lot more pleasurable.

Undead Much kicks zombie butt! Readers who were blown away with the first one will love this one just as much, if not more. So many things are in store for Megan and the Settlers.
