Mallory is going to do her best as the tough as nails defense lawyer to get her father out of murder charges for killing the undead cop in the first book. This is bad enough, especially when dealing with the emotionally driven case of the little boy, but what makes it worse is that the prosecuting attorney is her ex Aaron. Aaron is still making a push for them to be together again and Mallory can't reconcile her current situation and her feelings for him which, unlike her body, are still alive and well.
On top of THAT, Amanda Mallory's alter brain eating street walking ego gets herself into a bit of a pickle with a biker gang on one of her nightly prowls. Hopefully Amanda doesn't leave a trail of brains that lead right to Mallory's doorstep! The theme of angles and demons, good and evil, God and Lucifer are still strong in this book and things are heating up in LA. Vampire attorneys, zombie gangsters, celebrity ghosts yes, it's true , predictions of chaos and Armageddon. Eating brains aside, Mallory is just as in undeath as she was in life: Only problem is having to wait for the next installment!
Great job I loved this book, I especially like all the snide remarks the main character uses. The build up of the plot and twisting of the characters keeps me going to read more and finish the book. Thanks for another great read. Jul 27, April Robbins rated it it was amazing. Cool take on zombies and has some other interesting supernatural creatures also.

Most books where the main character is a "monster" the author chooses a "sexy" one like vampire or witch. Sometimes a werewolf, but that is usually only if the character is a man. I guess a hairy chick just isn't considered attractive for some reason.
You might have one of the ickier monsters as a supporting character, but they just don't have what it takes to carry a book.

Especially not if you hope to turn your book into a franchise. This one caught my attenti What can I say, I liked this one. This one caught my attention right away because the main character, well, she happens to be a zombie. Not a mindless drooling one, a mindful drooling one. She has to eat human to survive. Drinking blood is somehow not a minus when it comes to determining a character's attractiveness, eating human flesh is. I appreciate books that take on a challenge. A tormented vampire is nothing new.
That's a bit harder to sell. Sure, on the surface you might be tempted to say angst is angst. But it is so much easier to convince an audience that a creature with supernatural allure is attractive than it is to do the same with a flesh-eating corpse.
Don't know why but it is. Otherwise it would have been done before. Now they do have to make some changes for this to work. Obviously a main character who is literally brain dead is going to make for a boring story, unless you are a very clever writer. So she retains her brain. She actually acquires quite a few of them throughout the book, but we won't go into that here. Her backstory is that she was shot in a drive-by and brought back to life by someone intending to control her for some, no doubt nefarious, purpose.
Being naturally plucky, our heroine broke free of the control and is now searching for her murderer and her controller. As is usually the case, life continues to get in the way of her noble quest. I won't go into the plot because I truly think you should read this one for yourselves. At least you should if you like the genre. I do wish I had started with the first one because I prefer to read a series in its proper order.
But I can't recommend it yet since I haven't yet read it. Suffice it to say, I intend to find the first one, consume it, and then hunt down any others and devour them as well. Feb 24, Joseph R. The first book was entertaining, striking a good balance between comedy, mystery, noir, and horror. This book retains all the same elements and does a good job though it is a little darker. Mallory Caine is now defending her father, a zombie-slaying zealot who charged with killing an ex-cop by chopping his head off with a sword.
Mallory knows the act was self-defense because the ex-cop was a zombie ready to kill, but can she persuade the judge and jury to go along? Meanwhile, a ten-year old boy, Jaime, comes to her saying his mom is trying to kill him. Mallory's undead heart goes out to the boy, though his situation is a lot more complicated than it seems. He's part of an ongoing conspiracy to bring about the rule of Satan over the earth, starting in Los Angeles.
The Year of Eating Dangerously
She has to go through some legal shenanigans to get custody of him and some fantasy violence to keep him safe. All the while she is trying to find out who had her killed and brought back as a zombie. The legal scenes are entertaining but wildly improbable for example, the ghost of actor Darren McGavin provides expert witness testimony thanks to information he learned when he starred as Kolchak: The Night Stalker in the s. In the middle of the book, she goes on a vigilante eating spree where she starts killing and consuming some higher-level criminals because they are just too evil and getting away with it.
That part was a little too dark and too humorless to fit comfortably with the rest of the book. The big confrontation at the end doesn't really resolve anything, other than intrenching Mallory in her quest to save her soul and her city from the forces of evil. The book is a fun, light read for the most part.

She also reconnected with her father, who is a zombie hunter after he nearly killed her in the previously book, Pay Me In Flesh. Mallory is caught in a battle between good and evil, a battle she rather not be involved with. But this time, Mallory has to choose or doom mankind. Her love life is pretty much The Year of Eating Dangerously has Mallory Caine, attorney at law and a zombie, trying to find her murderer and the person who turned her into a zombie to turn her back to a normal human being.
Her love life is pretty much at zero, for fear that she might eat her lover, Aaron. She is also attracted to a LAPD detective, who is more or less, might make the connection of the certain killings she has committed as a vigilante. As with most zombie book, I have never understand how or why zombie exist.
They pretty much turned me off.

She hates being a zombie but what choice does she have than being permanently dead. She does what she needs to do in the name of justice for the victims that come to her for help and for her survival as a zombie although she hopes to find a Bokor to turn her back.

We also learn that Mallory does have a conscious as she tries to eat the brains of bad guys. Acting as a wannabe vigilante, she more or less gives herself the right to judge who gets to survive. We also see a softer side of Mallory when she holds a dead friend in her arms This series is undoubtedly very original. Despite the graphic brain eating scenes, it's not overly gory and gross. It has just the right amount and the sarcasm added to those scenes make them very tolerable.
However, they might not be for everyone. Highly recommended to any zombie lover. Jan 09, Doris rated it liked it. Ac zombie brain-eating lawyer?

It almost sounds like a job description, but in this case, it describes our main character, Mallory Caine, in this second book in a zomibe series.

She is defending her father, who happens to be a murderer, and also trying to wrest guardianship of a little guy away from the woman who claims to be his mother.
In order to do this, she has to step a little deeper into the pit of darkness that comes with being undead - and decide if she is okay with being a decaying, brain-devouring, soul-less creature of the night. Overall a very good book, which caused me to lose way too much sleep staying up to finish it! Jul 08, Jinksb rated it really liked it. I enjoyed the humor in this second entry in the series better than the first. The series arc - the ultimate battle between good and evil taking place in Los Angeles - isn't all that interesting to me.
I prefer the "everyday life as the walking dead" aspect better. What I find rather confusing is the cover blurb from a romance reviewing website. There's a bit of romantic mooning about on Mallory's part, and it's obvious her relationship with the police detective will be getting more serious, but I enjoyed the humor in this second entry in the series better than the first.
There's a bit of romantic mooning about on Mallory's part, and it's obvious her relationship with the police detective will be getting more serious, but other than that, this is not a romance. For which I am thankful, because that's not a genre I enjoy. I will be on the lookout for more in this series. Feb 28, Al Menaster rated it liked it. Good sequel to Pay Me in Flesh.
