Atticus for the Undead - John Abramowitz Supernaturals (Arcanes) have ‘come out’ and the whole world is concerned. There has to be some control, but with an outdated legal system that doesn’t cover zombies and vampires, the politicians are under pressure to make changes. Sam Pollard, a zombie, has been arrested for murder, he seeks the help of the Hunter Gamble a lawyer who defends only Arcanes, but with emotions running high in both humans and Arcanes this is not a good time to be on trail especially as the prosecutor is running for office and will do anything to get votes.

So I will start with what I didn’t like, well I didn’t like the title, ‘Atticus for the undead’ it just didn’t do anything for me. I also wasn’t keen on the cover art, it didn’t scream ‘read me’. This was definitely a case of don’t judge a book by its cover! I read the kindle version and by page three, or there about I was grabbed, by the end of chapter 1 I didn’t want to put it down………this has happened before many times but more often than not stories seem to lose their edge in the last quarter. That did not happen here, if anything the pace and excitement picked up in the latter part of the book and I ‘could’ not put it down.

OMG, flipping ‘ek, wow!! I cant remember reading a book that had an ending that I DID NOT see coming, not even a little bit, no hints, no red herrings, absolutely nothing to suggest it would end like that!!! I think I’m in shock!!

This was an excellently written novel, I didn’t give a second thought to writing style, punctuation or grammar etc because it flowed so well I forgot I was reading. I was so engrossed in the book that I just didn’t think about anything except what was happening in the story. I connected with the characters and felt like I knew them, I felt their pain, their happiness, their humour and their frustration. I enjoyed the read from start to finish and am so glad I got the chance to review it.
