Author | Goodreads | Amazon | Kindle
Twelve -year old Will Ritter and his rag-tag army of teenage resistance fighters may have triumphed over the Zombies last time, but that's the thing about the dead: they keep coming back.

A new Corpse leader has crossed the rift and taken command of the invasion: The Queen of the Dead is even more brilliant and ruthless than her predecessor, and her ambitions are even deadlier. Will and the crew must somehow rescue his mother, prevent an assassination, and show FBI Agent Ramirez the truth about the Corpses-and the danger the world faces.

But how do a bunch of kids prove to a grown-up that monsters are real?

Will Ritter is a member of the Undertakers, an underground group of children who have the ability to see Corpses as they truly are. In this second installment of the series, the Undertakers realize that the Queen of the Dead has made her comeback and the Corpses have taken an FBI agent hostage. Now, the Undertakers plan to get him back, even if it means breaking into a state prison.

Lilith Cavanaugh, the Queen of the Dead, is brutal and scary. She likes fresh corpses. In fact, she'll have young women killed just so she can take over their body when her current corpse begins to decompose. She plans on taking over the world since Kenny Booth, the past leader of the Corpses, failed that mission when Will stopped him months ago.

The Queen doesn't have any idea just how big and frightful of an enemy she has in Will. In the past, Will's father was killed by the Corpses, who then took Will's mother and sister hostage. Will is bent on avenging his father's death and saving his mother and sister, and he will stop at nothing to achieve this goal. For all the tragedy that he's gone through, Will hasn't become a reckless avenger. His heart remains pure and strong, and he's very selfless when it comes to others. He is willing to put himself at risk to save others without a second thought for his own safety.

The action in this book is exciting and engaging and will captivate zombie fans from start to end.
