I love it when one of the guys says a cuss word and one of the parents will call their name and say language and whoever it is that said the cuss word just kind of mumbles sorry. This would have me laughing and sometimes I would be hurting. Gramps is the kind of person that you just can't help but love. I loved how everything that Gramps did was ok because he was "grandfathered" in or something like that. I mean all the things that he could do and get by with when no one else could. Gramps is a real cool dude for an older guy. He would tell anyone how it was and he wasn't scared of anyone or anything.
Caleb and Tiff decide to help Garcia with his murder investigation. They want to help find whoever it is that is killing the kids. Caleb thought since he had an Affinity for the Dead he should use to help people otherwise it was useless. Working with the police was a way for them to use it and help people at the same time. He thought it was cool as hell that he could rise zombies out of their graves and get them to do what he wanted but he wanted to do more.
Brett is still giving Jade a hard time stalking her and trying to push himself on her. Brett wants Jade for his girlfriend but Jade likes Caleb. Jade knows she probably needs to tell Brett to get lost but she is just not the type of person to be mean to someone especially when they haven't really did anything to hurt her. Caleb doesn't like Brett following his girl around and gets pissed when Jade fails to tell him about Brett. Brett just wants what he can't have and to be the one in control. He wants to be the bad guy and everyone fall down on their knees and worship him. Brett and Carson have learned that Caleb and his friends are stronger than they were last year so Brett and Carson have gotten reinforcement on their side. They have obtained more friends with abilities like theirs. You know I really don't like the way Brett, Carson and their friends act. I don't like the way they treat people like they are a rug that they wipe their feet on. But I think I understand why Brett acts and does what he does which doesn't give him a reason or excuse to do what he does. I just mean he has had a hard life his dad abusing him and his older brother being killed a few years back. He is probably just angry at the whole world. Like I said it doesn't give him an ok or an out other people have gone through the same thing or very similar. Jade's dad had beaten her up a lot and she doesn't have a mean bone in her little body.
I liked how the guys would like describe girls or their weight they would say she is like a buck five. I have never heard this and thought it was funny. I just love how these kids was so happy and fun loving with the greysheets after them and also with all the kids that was getting killed. They could put it all in the back of their minds and get on with their lives I mean they couldn't change any of it so why let it mess up their lives. These are all cool kids.
I am really enjoying reading the Death series and I plan on reading every book in the series. Tamara Rose Blodgett is a great writer and I also intend to read more of her work than just the Death series. I love zombies and the Death series is a nice change to other zombies like The Walking Dead kind of zombies. Oh don't get me wrong I totally love The Walking Dead and will not miss an episode for nothing or no one. But you know change is refreshing sometimes.
Caleb actually gets to put his Affinity for the Dead (AFTD) abilities to use in Death Speaks. He's not exactly impressed by his AFTD class, especially since it's clear that his abilities go far beyond what the teacher can teach him. However, helping the police gives Caleb a sense of purpose and he can see his ability as being useful rather than dangerous (and epically awesome!). The murder mystery plot does give a darker tone to this installment, but I quite enjoyed it. I liked seeing all of the pieces come together and observe how Caleb was developing and honing in his ability. There are quite a few surprises along the way, too.
However, much of the focus was on Caleb and his friends. They're growing up, but they're just as close as ever. They've even adopted a new guy named Alex who is also a paranormal. I really enjoyed seeing Caleb's relationship with Jade grow. It's pretty uncomplicated, but it was funny to see him stress over what to get her for her birthday. He even has some alpha male moments when a rival is hitting on Jade, which of course end badly, as he's a 14 year old boy who can raise the dead.
My favorite part was, of course, the zombies! Particularly Clyde and Onyx. I adored getting more bits from Onyx's doggy brain. He is so smart and loyal, and was a fun form of foreshadowing. Heavy foreshadowing normally gets on my nerves, but using Onyx's POV was interesting and clever, since dogs often notice things that their owners do not. Clyde pops up a few times throughout, and he's changed quite a bit since Death Whispers. I don't want to give anything away, but his bond with Caleb is certainly something special and I can't wait until it's explored more.
Basically, Death Speaks is great! The pacing is spot on, and the world continues to expand. It's funny, action packed, and fully engaging. While the ending wasn't a cliffhanger at all, it still has this sense of uncertainly when it comes to Caleb and his future involvement with the government. I'm also dying to know more about Jeffery Parker!
This book picks up pretty much where the last one let off with the group of paranormals (and a couple of norms) finding their niche as a group of young adults with awesome powers. Caleb has been taking the summer off from corpse raising and it has been pretty uneventful even if it has been a lot of fun. That all changes when Caleb and Tiff agree to help find the serial killer that they discovered by accident on Friday the Thirteenth...
All sorts of chaos ensues as they start high school and try to help the police figure out who is killing kids their age. No one knows how the victims are chosen or why they were killed. The group expands and more issues with the usual suspects arise. The only real issue I found was Brett was somehow in the highschool with them and he is supposed to be a mundane and they don't mix education wise. Otherwise it is an awesome second book to the series!
This series is not for the squeamish as some of the violence and zombie related stuff is quite graphic. The main story would be teen friendly for the most part otherwise. I really love this series... even altered... and can't wait to reread the prequel Death Inception (The Death Series) which is now considered the third book.
***This series is suitable for mature young adult through adult readers
