Undertakers: Rise of the Corpses is a refreshing, yummy read.




Young, William Karl Ritter was getting ready for school like any other day. Only this day was different. There is something odd about Old Man Pratt, Will’s next door neighbor. His skin seems to be whiter and drier than usual. Though this is not what is different. He is grumpy but that is nothing new. The “dead” giveaway that something is up with Old Man Pratt is the beetles and the rotten flesh smell. Old Man Pratt is a Corpse. Things get weirder when Will arrives at school. The teachers are Corpses as well. Will escapes with the help of another student. Will is brought to a hideout location. This is where Will learns that he has the gift of “sight”. He can see the Corpses. Will is recruited as the newest member of the Undertakers. They are mainly formed by a group of children and they are the only defense against the Corpses.

You could tell that this book was written and geared towards younger readers like middle school age. The way Will talked and acted. I like that the children were the main heroes and not the adults. While there were a few adults they were not the main focus. It was the Undertakers and the Corpse. Don’t call them Zombies. There is a difference. The Corpses are stronger and smart. The pace of this book is fast. There is lots of action, The characters are relatable, which is a good thing. You always want characters that you can cheer for. Will is a leader. If you want to get into this series, now is the time as this book is book one. Undertakers: Rise of the Corpses is a refreshing, yummy read.
