Great story. Very informative. Great closure for Bodhi and Eliza. Now on to the Hidden Path.
After the introduction of Bhodi King in the Sasha McCandless series, I was so excited to see a series devoted to him. The first book left me wanting to read even more of his adventures and work. In this second book, the story was intriguing and thrilling. To track down what caused a young woman, and others, to become a zombie. I enjoyed reading more about Eliza and learning the connection. One of my favorite things is how this wonderful characters are interwoven throughout various series of books. Another great read that was impossible to put down and has me now anxiously awaiting book #3 in this series!
I was provided an advance copy of this book.
