Edward Grey is a medical student by day, necromancer by night. He lives alone with the first zombie he ever raised, his childhood cat, Boo. Edward’s life is simple: studying medicine, training his necromantic powers with his mentor, Mariel, and having weekly dinners with his parents. When he finds a very attractive corpse in a park and brings it home to reanimate, he accidentally creates a sassy, free-willed zombie who believes Edward is the one who murdered him.
With no memory of his former life, Edward names the zombie Kit and tries to win his trust. Kit slowly adjusts to his new un-life with Edward’s help, though he’s still suspicious of Edward’s role in his death and is convinced that Edward is hiding his former identity. Edward is very attracted to Kit, but understands why Kit doesn’t trust him. As they become closer to one another, Kit turns to Edward for comfort and love. The fragile trust they’ve built together will be tested when Kit unexpectedly regains his memory and seeks revenge on his murderers.
This story is so fun. I truly enjoyed seeing how Kit and Edward interacted with each other when Kit first woke up. Then how hey danced around each other and fell into a relationship without really talking about it. My heart broke for Kit when he finally remembered everything. No one should have to go through all of that, but for it to basically hit him like it did. Wow. I loved how Mariel was a little bit intriguing, a lot crazy, and the right mixture of both to make her a fun character to read and add to the story’s humor. I truly enjoyed the happy ending, though I want to see more of Edward and Kit.

Kit took one look at the concoction and raised his eyebrows in disbelief and disgust. “What is that supposed to be?”
“It’s your food. Mmm! Delicious, brains! Zombies love brains!” I could see right away that I had gone too far.
“I am not a dog or a child, Edward. And I don’t appreciate your stereotyping.”
Oh, great. I had offended a zombie. What a schmuck. “I’m sorry, Kit. Won’t you at least try it?”
“Is that a slice of brain?”
“…yes. Technically. It’s not human!”
“Oh, it’s a brain, but it’s not human. That makes it all better. What’s in the rest of it?”
“The rest of the cow?” No, this was not going at all well. I pleaded. I cajoled. I begged.
He poured it down the sink.
