Title: My Zombie Fiance (The Undead Canadian #2)
Author Name: T. Strange
Publication Date: July 13, 2016
Edward Grey is no stranger to the undead; since raising his cat as a zombie when he was a child, he and his mentor Mariel have explored and developed his power as a necromancer. Despite everything he’s learned, as a necromancer and a medical student, he’s never encountered a ghost.
While Mariel is unreachable in Haiti on mysterious business, a ghost wakes Edward in the middle of the night, claiming to be his grandfather. When the ghost offers to teach him about this different form of undeath, Edward has little choice but to trust the spirit.
After receiving a phone call from a young girl claiming her father is possessed, Edward and his Undead Canadian fiancé, Kit, must travel to an acreage in Kingston…Ontario.
The haunting proves far more complicated than Edward could ever have guessed, and he finds himself pitted against an ancient evil determined to engulf everyone on the farm.
Edward’s love and connection to Kit will be tested, and his necromancy stretched to his limits as he has to find—and destroy—a twisted spirit more powerful than anything he’s ever encountered.
This is a terrific follow-up to My Zombie Boyfriend. It has all the delightfully weird elements of the first book without being simply more of the same.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I picked it up. Total honesty: I didn’t even read the blurb. I just wanted more of Edward and Kit (and maybe Bone). I got my wish as well as a great story that had me hooked from the start and kept my interest all the way to the end.
What I liked: This is brand-new territory for Edward the Necromancer. He’s used to zombies, and now he has to deal with ghosts. I enjoyed the twists, and I liked how it isn’t the same old tired ghost story. Sure, there’s an unhappy ghost, a love connection with the long-deceased, and a couple of exorcisms, but they’re all different parts of the story. They felt fresh, and it was exciting to see Edward’s abilities expanding and being tested.
What I loved: Besides Edward and Kit, I still adore creepy Bone, and I really enjoyed his parts in the story. My only complaint is that there is not enough Boo in this one! I also loved how there’s plenty of shiver-inducing ghost-and-zombie action, but there’s also a lot of oh-my-gosh-I’m-glad-I-wasn’t-
Anyone looking for a steamy romance won’t find it here. The lovey stuff happened in the last book, so this one is more about Edward discovering his new talents. However, anyone needing a quirky paranormal tale that can be read in an afternoon should definitely pick this one up.
