Book Review: King of the Dead
In a world ruled by the undead, Renee is one of the last survivors. Forced into captivity by the king of the dead, she discovers a secret that could save humanity - or destroy it. To get the information she needs, she must get close to the one man who holds the key to everything: the king himself.
Zane is a zombie, but he's also a man who was once in love with Renee. He saved her from his horde years ago, but she doesn't remember him. Now, he'll stop at nothing to make her his queen - even if it means risking everything. Together, they'll explore the forbidden love that binds them, and the dark secrets that threaten to tear them apart.
In this haunting tale of love and death, Renee and Zane will discover that life and death may not be what they thought - and that they can be reborn through love. Don't miss your chance to enter the Kingdom of the Dead.
I absolutely love this book. Before going into it, I was expecting a spicy, zombie story. This because I had just finished Ryana's Haunted Legacies trilogy. However, this book is so much more than just a love story or a zombie story.
This book made me think of Warm Bodies by Issac Marion. This book was also more than a "zombie" book. It was an experience. I really felt the emotions between Zane and Renee. In the beginning, all Renee could see is the physical side of Zane but the longer she was in his company, she was able to see past this and recognize that he was just someone looking for love.
When I think of zombie books, I instantly picture male leads but props to Ryana for featuring Brie. She is snarky but at the same time someone that you would want in your corner. Even if she is undead. Additionally, I loved that Ryana featured a diverse character in Renee. Renee has a hearing disability, but it never hindered her. King of the Dead is sure to delight both the undead and the living!
