I'm just a girl who loves reading more than life itself. A day without a book is a day gone wrong, in my opinion :) Looking forward to meeting new people, talking to them about books and spreading the bookish love!

Queen of the Dead - Stacey Kade To read more reviews and fun things go to my blog; Drugs Called Books!Oh, I loved this book very much.Alona Dare, with all her imperfection, is just so very likable it's odd. She has her shallow moments, and her deep moments, and they are all wrapped up in one package in a way that makes total sense (kudos to the lovely author for that!). She is dead, and yet so strangely alive in her reaction and thoughts. She's changing, too, and evolving, in more than one way. Will is just delicious in my mind. I love him and his character, and the way he cares about Alona - even though she drives him insane sometimes. He is also a good friend, a guy with character, and someone who has seen his fair share of things. And he is not afraid to put Alona in her place—quite literally, sometimes. Hey, someone's got to keep her legs on the ground. Or slightly above it, or whatever it is ghosts do. The rest of the ghost-talkers were an interesting addition to the story. I like how we find more about Will's abilities and the different levels of them, and how we learn more about ghosts and Will's dad. I did not like the Order, though I've a feeling I was not supposed to. They are not bad, but rather Will and Alona's opposites in the way they decipher their mission as ghost speakers, and I just love Will and Alona too much. I think, honestly, that their way must be balanced with Will's to get the best mix. I knew what the cliffhanger for this book will be. I had read the summaries for all three books before starting to read them, so I accidently got some spoilers. And even so, I was surprised with the way the wonderful author took it--I had not expected it to happen mid-book, and not expected to see all it had brought to Alona's character and Will's. I loved the ending, so very much. It left such a strong taste for more, and was yet simply the perfect way to close this book. Very sweet, as well. In conclusion: I can't wait to read the next book. I hope to get my hands on all three books soon, even though it's difficult to get them where I live.
