About the Author
Part time author and full time fantacist, Chele Cooke is a sci-fi, fantasy, and paranormal author living in London, UK. With a degree in Creative Writing, Chele's first novel was published in 2013. She writes gritty character driven stories that often merge and bend the borders between genres. While some know they want to write stories since childhood, Chele first started writing as a teenager writing fanfiction and roleplaying. Before long playing in other people's worlds wasn't enough and she started creating her own. Living in San Francisco at the time, she found a lot of inspiration in her favourite city, some of which can be found in her books. A self-confessed lover of all types of stories, Chele is a big fan of television, movies, and music. When she's not writing, Chele can often be found hanging out online, cross stitching, or knitting.

The book does end on a cliffhanger (which is my only complaint), but the good news is that the second part is already out. The cliffhanger itself is excellent, as it does make you want to continue with the story!
Dead and Buryd is gritty and dark with a touch of romance. It has a strong, kickass heroin that survives through alien invasion, colonization, and war. Filled with suspense, subterfuge and treachery, you do not want to miss out on reading this novel that will hold on to you for dear life.
Highly recommended read.
The author has created a world of extremes and many twists and turns in the plot. Keeps you suspicious of all the characters all the time. Made it a little hard to bond with the various characters but definitely keeps you wondering.
All in all a fun read.
Georgianna is a medic on an earthlike planet which has had the unfortunate experience of having been through some catastrophic climate changes. While some of the inhabitants escaped into space on ships, many were left to tunnel into the earth and adapt to the changes. When deemed safe, the escapees return and declare authority over the ones left behind.
Imprisonment, slavery, torn relationships, drama and suspense. This book has it all. This book will appeal to anyone with an interest and love for dystopian fantasies.
*I have received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
Trying to survive in the oppressive environment created when the Adveni returned to Os-Veruth, a 26 year old medic named Georgianna spreads herself thin trying to help as many people as possible while continuing to survive herself. She is one of the few medics willing to walk into Lyndbury Compound to treat those imprisoned by the Adveni. Once a Veniche is locked in the Lyndbury Compound, they are referred to as "buryd alive," hence the book's title. The majority of the substance to the story is in the second half, so I won't touch on details, but the struggle of daily life among the Veniche is palpable throughout the book.
This was a bit of a slow read for me and took me a few days to finish. The story didn't really pick up until around halfway through. The characters are interesting and believable but a bit flat. The most interesting part for me was the world itself and the conflict the story is based around. The concept of this book puts a new spin on an old plot. The second half of the story was very interesting and I had no trouble finishing it.
I received an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
