Queen of the Dead by Stacey Kade Review

"After being sent back from the light, Alona Dare - former homecoming queen, current Queen of the Dead - finds herself doing something she never expected: working. Instead of spending days perfecting her tan by the pool (her typical summer routine when she was, you know, alive), Alona must now cater to the needs of other lost spirits. By her side for all of this - ugh - “helping of others” is Will Killian: social outcast, seer of the dead, and someone Alona cares about more than she’d like.

Before Alona can make a final ruling on Will’s “friend” or “more” status, though, she discovers trouble at home. Her mom is tossing out Alona’s most valuable possessions, and her dad is expecting a new daughter with his wicked wife. Is it possible her family is already moving on? Hello! She’s only been dead for two months! Thankfully, Alona knows just the guy who can put a stop to this mess.

Unfortunately for Alona, Will has other stuff on his mind, and Mina, a young (and beautiful) seer, is at the top of the list. She’s the first ghost-talker Will’s ever met—aside from his father—and she may hold answers to Will’s troubled past. But can she be trusted? Alona immediately puts a check mark in the “clearly not” column. But Will is - ahem - willing to find out, even if it means leaving a hurt and angry Alona to her own devices, which is never a good idea. 

Packed with romance, lovable characters, and a killer cliffhanger, Queen of the Dead is the out-of-this-world sequel to The Ghost and the Goth."

Queen of the Dead is just wow. Not as good as If You Find Me, but better than most of the recent books I had been reading. 

Alona and Will are back in town! I'll keep this review short, so I'll do this numbers and words.

1)Hilarious moments. Lots of them. It helps keeping the mood of the story light not dar.

2)Alona's feelings. So much LOL on her feelings. 

3)Will's feelings. I'm begging for them to just get together. But no... It can't be that way...yet. There is a book after Queen of the Dead.

4)Alona's personality. I love how the author manages to keep Alona's personality slightly the same. I love the  bitchiness of Alona. She's like the queen of the dead. Alona is much lighter...She's not as dark as before. But she is still as horrible. And much nicer than the first book, The Ghost and the Goth.

5)The plot. How the author wrote the plot was amazing. I love how these characters react to each other. And there's a sort of happy ending. Sort of.

6)Will's conflicts. Stacey Kade did a great job on Will. Will is trying to find answers. About the Order. About his dad. About his ability. Plus, he has that little, ahem, problem with Alona and her parents and her personality and her treasures. 

1) The chemistry between Alona and Will. They need to get the move on. 

And that is about it. Really short review. Short and simple.

This book's rating is a four out of five.
