DEARLY DEPARTED (Gone with the Respiration #1)
RELEASE DATE: June 2012
GENRE: Horror, Zombie, Young Adult
I parted the curtains. A skeletal face peered back at me, blackened eyes rolling in sockets seemingly unsupported by flesh. It smiled…
It should be game over for Nora Dearly when she is ambushed and dragged off into the night by the living dead. But this crack unit of teen zombies are the good guys, sent to protect Nora from the real monsters roaming the country and zeroing in on cities to swell their ranks.
Can Nora find a way to kill off the evil undead once and for all? Can she trust her protectors to resist their hunger for human flesh? And can she stop herself falling for the noble, sweet, surprisingly attractive, definitely-no-longer-breathing Bram…?
This is the new paperback cover from Corgi for the first book in Lia Habel’s Gone with the Respiration zombie series. I haven’t read this one yet, but it’s sitting on my shelf calling to me. I really love this new cover, and although I liked the hardback version, this is really more my thing and would definitely make me buy it if I saw it in the bookshop. The zombie guy’s eyes just draw me in and intrigues me. Zombie romance isn’t something I usually go in for, but after reading Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion I have a more open mind about it all.
Darkly sinister, this cover is very eye catching. From the scary looking man on the front (it’s the eyes), to the lady in red fleeing in the back, to the red mist. Overall it just works really well.
