Review!! Almost Alive By Daryl Banner

April 24, 2015

Title: Almost Alive (The Beautiful Dead, #3)
Author: Daryl Banner
Release Date: April 24, 2015
Genre: Post Apocalyptic Zombie
Twelve years have passed since the devastation. The world is changed. What once was a planet struggling to survive is now a planet bursting to life. The humans are thriving. Gardens are growing. Trees are reaching up to the sky and the Undeadly clutch on the planet is slowly letting go. But what does that mean for Winter and her friends? In the wake of spring, the last of the desperate Undead gather, fighting to maintain their place in a world that no longer wants them. Mother Nature slowly but certainly works to purge the planet of the Dead, just when Winter thought she had finally embraced this Second Life. Her new friends are back and old nemeses return for the final chapter in Winter's Undead journey.  

Review 5.0 Stars!! 

It appears that no time has passed at all, yet in the blink of an eye, a dead eye-12 years are gone and unbeknownst to Winter everything has changed. It's that truly the way of things, so many things change when we are lost in grief and hiding from the world. This is what Winter is facing in Almost Dead, book 3 of the Beautiful Dead series. But more then change in the people and undead around her are the changes to the world. It is once again coming to life. The great question is what does that mean for Winter and the other undead.

This story picks up right where book two left you hanging and boy does it carry on! This book was as fantastic as the previous two and aside from the nasty spiders I could not put it down! I have absolutely loved this series and I was utterly heart broke to have it end. Winter's story is by far my favorite series of the year so far and I just can't help but wish it did not have to end. But that is the way of things. I especially loved the very end and the "extra" that the author added to the story. It gave me a bit of comfort. 

But seriously can I just add if you read one series this year and you love fantasy/paranormal stories, move this to the top of your list and read it!! 


“It’s just how I remember it,” he remarks. “Except I’m … considerably less hungry.”
“Side effect,” I jest.
“Being alive is so inconvenient.”
“So very.”

(The Beautiful Dead, #1) On Sale Now for 99¢! Amazon US | Amazon UK She’s dead. In fact, the whole world’s dead. Every single person, apparently. Unburied and reimagined into a beautiful living-dead woman called Winter, she is doomed to spend the rest of eternity in a quaint, peaceful city with no hunger, no sickness and no bills to pay. Her Second Life is perfect in every way possible. So why is she so bent on destroying it all? After angering the mayor, befriending rebel headless teenagers and igniting romance with a dark and brooding neighbor, she finds herself wrestling madly with a First Life she cannot remember and this Second Life she cannot accept. Not to mention the maniacal army of rotting corpses who want her dead. Again. But none of that matters in comparison to an even worse problem. There’s a guest in her house. A rude, good-looking man on the run ... a man with a heartbeat.

Undead neighbors fight with their Breathing ones. Food is sparse. And, worst of all, the season is taking a change for the colder. A desperate plea for help to a neighboring city turns deadly and soon Winter finds herself facing an old friend from her past whose plot to annihilate all life on the planet may have everything to do with her. And what about the man-with-the-heartbeat in her house? Is there even room for love in such a ruined, unforgiving world? New friends are made. Others are lost forever. In the dead of winter, no one is safe.
