'Wanted: Dead or Undead' by Angela Scott

Look at me!! Back already!! Amazing how hard I will work when I am doing everything I possibly can not to go running...SLACKER...that is I. I have nothing to prove to you people....

Wait!! Wait!! Come back....Who loves a Sparkly Vampire who ruins teenage girls lives?????
Wanted: Dead or UndeadWell, I sure as hell don't. That is why I picked up Angela's Scott's FANTASTIC book.....

As you know, I have been mourning the end of my Walking Dead program. I have a love/hate feeling towards Zombie's. I love that they are scary, and you have to run and they can hurt you. I hate they are so blasted disgusting to look at, well, and they're cannibals. Really, there is icky, then there is revolting.

Trace Monroe doesn’t believe in luck. He never has. But when a fiery-headed cowgirl saunters through the saloon doors, wielding shotguns and a know-how for killing the living dead, he believes he just may be the luckiest man alive.
Trace wants to join Red’s posse, but she prefers to work alone—less messy that way. In order to become her travelling companion, Trace has to agree to her terms: no names, no questions, and if he gets bit, he can’t beg for mercy when she severs his brain stem.
He agrees, knowing only that Red is the sharpest shooter he’s ever encountered. The fact she’s stunning hasn’t escaped his attention either.
What he doesn’t know, is that Red has a very good reason to be on top of her game. She not only has the answer for how they can all outlive the plague taking over the wild, wild west, she IS the answer.

It's the Wild West meets Walking Dead. It is non-stop action. I had no clue a book could provide the same thrill as watching people run from these...creatures. I found myself yelling, "Run you stupid boy!!"..It is that exciting.

The ,"fiery-red cowgirl" is a Zombie killer so to speak. She has lost everything and unique abilities that keep her alive. The Cowboy teams up with her, not for the right reasons, and further characters join.

Serious excitement folks. I read well into the morn (look at me! Home on the range lingo!)..through breakfast, through dinner. Done. Done...to only find out there is not a number 2 out yet. FireDaddy breathes a sigh of relief.

For you Smoochy Swashbuckling Pirate peeps, there is romance, but not so much that your thanking Sweet Jesus you have a kindle.

Again, what is my  #1 commandment????
"I shall invest in decent cover shall I ever want anyone besides my Mom to read my book".

If you are fortunate to have a spouse who reads ( I am not- yet he cleans so whatever) this is a book all shall enjoy. Kids? Your discretion. I am the worst Mother in the world and frankly if the 10 yr old reads anything I am thrilled...so leave that hall light on, they'll need it.
