Controlling The Dead Blog Tour - Review & Giveaway

Hi everyone! Today we have a stop on the Controlling The Dead Blog Tour. There is a review of this wonderful book and a giveaway for you all!

Title: Controlling the Dead (The Famished Trilogy #2)
Author: Annie Walls
Published: Oct. 27, 2013
With the help of her new companions, the path Kansas follows leads to more knowledge of the ever adapting famished. 

The team finds help in unlikely places, meeting more survivors, and discovers the possibility of a new beginning. 

When the team experiences a devastating loss, Kansas struggles to keep her humanity from fading and distorting like that of the surviving society around her. It begins with knowing who to trust and who to leave behind. First, she must trust herself – she won't make the same mistakes twice. 

As the answers to her questions are revealed, Kansas begins to understand the knowledge comes with a heavy price and great responsibility of controlling the dead. 

In a trilogy plot thick with twists and turns, this adult dark fantasy is as emotional as it is horrifyingly gripping.

For Mature Audience

My Review
Kansas has survived zombies,heartache and so much more but her journey isn't over. She has made new friends and found out many things she didn't know before. She has to learn to let herself heal and find out more answers to the questions she has. This is a long hard road to travel and the zombies may be the least of her worries.

Kansas is one of my absolute favorite characters of all time. She kicks ass and great at surviving. She has more weaker moments I think in this book but she has been through so much it isn't any wonder. It just really makes her that much more fantastic. She has to figure out something strange that is happening to her her now.  Along with Kansas are the great and the not so great characters you meet in the first book along with some new ones.

This is one of my favorite series and not just because it has zombies but because while reading it you feel you are inside Kansas`s head. You really live her life. This book adds so much more to the plot. sometimes the second book doesn't live up to the first but this one certainly does. Kansas has really hard decisions to make in this book. There is tons of action and the book never slows down. It keeps you entertained from page one. I will say I had my heartbroken reading this but won't give any spoilers. If you want an amazing story of survival pick this up. You don't have to be a fan of zombies to read this series there is so much more to the books.
