What I Loved:
I loved the adventure that Damage in an Undead Age took me on! I enjoyed the new characters that were introduced and the twists created by their addition to the story! What I loved the most though, was the emotional journey that I wasn’t expecting. It was beautifully woven into the zombie apocalypse and left me unable to put the book down.
Damage in an Undead Age picks up just after book 1, Love in an Undead Age. The group has escaped on a boat and is healing from their injuries. They have Jeremiah, the crazy man that is immune to zombies, safely secured as they sail to their next destination in hopes of finding help to create a vaccine.
Unfortunately, help isn’t there and they must move on. Their next stop does have a lab where they can set up to start working on the vaccine. It turns out that they are not alone though. They’ll soon discover zombies aren’t the only dangerous thing around them.
How I Felt:
Damage in an Undead Age was so much more than a post-apocalyptic zombie story! The characters each have their own internal struggles that created such an emotional roller-coaster!
The plot was so exciting! It had a lot of zombie action, but also had this storyline that had romance and heartbreak mixed in. I was so impressed with A.M. Geever’s ability to write this beautiful story that had me gripped from page one!
The characters feel so real. The flaws that were added to each character gave them depth and made me connect to them. Miranda has struggles that she continues to work to overcome, and in the middle of that, she is hit with new events in her life that change everything she thought she knew about herself. I really enjoyed her character arc.
We are also introduced to a new character, Skye, and I loved her. I was in love with her romance storyline. It felt just right and had a lovely build-up.
Overall, I was blown away by this story. I loved every word on every page. I really hope there is a third book because this story has so much more to tell!
Abortion, pregnancy and loss, rape, abuse, self-harm through cutting, use of C-word in one instance.
To Read or Not To Read:
I would recommend Damage in an Undead Age to readers that enjoy a story about zombies, but also a story following a character’s emotional journey.
If you haven’t read the first book in this series, Love in an Undead Age, I highly recommend that you start there. It provides a ton of backstory (and it’s a great book)! Here’s my review.

It’s what you don’t see coming that kills you.
Safely hidden from San Jose’s City Council, Miranda Tucci has begun to believe that life can be good again. Reunited with Mario, and accompanied by her best friend Father Doug Michel, she has undertaken a hazardous journey to the Pacific Northwest. There, the trio of friends hope to recreate the vaccine for the zombie virus.
But danger still lurks in what used to be civilization, and hearts can still be broken. If Miranda lowers her guard enough to nurture a small, soft dream, can she risk losing it without losing herself? And with the ravenous undead always in pursuit, can she stay alive long enough to see it come true?
