Unfed by Kirsty McKay (ARC)

The good news: Bobby survived her Undead school trip. Bad news: her best mate, Smitty, is missing. Bobby knows she's got to find him even if it means risking it all and going out into the starving-zombie-infested wastelands again. Even if it means taking fellow survivors including a couple of old frenemies along for the ride. And even if the zombies are not the only ones who are chasing them this time.

Check out my review of Undead (Undead #1) here.

Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! Forget the wild animals that have gone all zombie on your @ss, and the carrion birds of prey ready to pick you clean long before your dead, the zombies themselves are smarter this time around.

Bobby wakes up from a coma in a strange hospital rockin' a scarred buzzed head, only to discover Smitty is missing and told her mother is dead, even though she's left cryptic messages for her proving she's not. The poor girl can't even get in a good meal (or find a pair of pants!) before the hospital goes into lockdown and the undead are breaking down her door. Pushing her way through the ventilation, Bobby discovers the other survivors of the bus crash - Alice and Pete, and newcomer Russ. And oh yeah, the hospital is run by Xanthro, the company that made the virus, so you know this is going to end so well.

Together the group tries to decipher the cryptic messages Bobby has to find both Smitty, the guy she stabbed the cure into at the end of Undead, and make her way to where her mother is hiding out waiting. But the path is filled with zombies that have been tweaked to perfection, making them more efficient killing machines. Not to mention the zombie wildlife looking for a bite, and the Xanthro guys chasing them down because of how valuable one of them is to the virus.

If you loved Undead (like I did!), then you're gonna love Unfed. Can't wait for the next!
