Dearly, Beloved, Gone With The Respiration #2, de Lia Habel

Sinopse: Can the living coexist with the living dead?
That’s the question that has New Victorian society fiercely divided ever since the mysterious plague known as “The Laz” hit the city of New London and turned thousands into walking corpses. But while some of these zombies are mindless monsters, hungry for human flesh, others can still think, speak, reason, and control their ravenous new appetites.
Just ask Nora Dearly, the young lady of means who was nearly kidnapped by a band of sinister zombies but valiantly rescued by a dashing young man . . . of the dead variety.
Nora and her savior, the young zombie soldier Bram Griswold, fell hopelessly in love. But others feel only fear and loathing for the reanimated dead. Now, as tensions grow between pro- and anti-zombie factions, battle lines are being drawn in the streets. And though Bram is no longer in the New Victorian army, he and his ex-commando zombie comrades are determined to help keep the peace. That means taking a dangerous stand between The Changed, a radical group of sentient zombies fighting for survival, and The Murder, a masked squad of urban guerrillas hellbent on destroying the living dead. But zombies aren’t the only ones in danger: Their living allies are also in The Murder’s crosshairs, and for one vengeful zealot, Nora Dearly is the number one target.
As paranoia, prejudice, and terrorist attacks threaten to plunge the city into full-scale war, Nora’s scientist father and his team continue their desperate race to unlock the secrets of “The Laz” and find a cure. But their efforts may be doomed when a mysterious zombie appears bearing an entirely new strain of the virus-and the nation of New Victoria braces for a new wave of the apocalypse.
Lia Habel’s spellbinding, suspenseful sequel to Dearly, Departedtakes her imaginative mash-up of period romance, futuristic thriller, and zombie drama to a whole new level of innovative and irresistible storytelling.

Li o primeiro livro e gostei bastante, uma mistura de zombies, steampunk e romance. Podia ter dado para o torto, acho que é difícil conjugar bem estes elementos mas a autora fez um ótimo trabalho. Gostei tanto que tive de comprar este segundo que já saiu no início de 2013. Existe no Goodreads a referência a um terceiro livro desta série mas depois de 3 anos ainda não há novidades.

A Court of Mist and Fury, A Court of Thorns and Roses #2, de Sarah J. Maas

Sinopse: Feyre is immortal.
After rescuing her lover Tamlin from a wicked Faerie Queen, she returns to the Spring Court possessing the powers of the High Fae. But Feyre cannot forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people – nor the bargain she made with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court.
As Feyre is drawn ever deeper into Rhysand’s dark web of politics and passion, war is looming and an evil far greater than any queen threatens to destroy everything Feyre has fought for. She must confront her past, embrace her gifts and decide her fate.
She must surrender her heart to heal a world torn in two.

Tenho de ser sincera, quando este livro chegou cá a casa eu quase que tinha um ataque cardíaco à frente do carteiro 🙂 Mal acabei o livro que estava a ler peguei logo neste e só posso dizer que amei, ainda estou a processar tudo para poder fazer uma review que lhe faça justiça. Foi tão bom e ainda melhor do que o primeiro e agora é só esperar 1 ano pelo próximo 😛
