Hellforged - Book Review

Hellforged (Deadtown #2) by Nancy Holzner

What is it about:
A demon is stalking Vicky's dreams-just as several of Deadtown's zombies are viciously attacked and become really dead. And when Vicky realizes she is the only connection between the victims, she suspects that the demon is somehow working through her dreams to become Deadtown's living nightmare.

What did I think of it:
A worthy sequel to Deadtown. I liked how the zombies (especially Tina) got more screen time in this book as they're really cool zombies in my opinion. Holzner further expands on the world she created in the first book in a believable and intriguing way. There are some minor storylines that are clearly leading up to events that will unfold in later books in this series, but this is done in a way that doesn't frustrate or annoy, instead it make me eager to keep reading this series. The main storyline is intense and actionpacked. The one thing I could say against this book is that I got the feeling that Vicky is so busy dealing with the horrors facing her and others that there's no time for her to stop and look at herself. Don't get me wrong: This is a great series and you bet I'm going to get hold of book three when it's released, but I'd love to see Vicky get some downtime and go through some personal growth in future books.

Why should you read it:
It's a kick-ass UF book with demons and cool zombies!
