Dead is All You Get (Tell Me When I’m Dead #2) by Steven Ramirez

Dead is All You Get

Dave, Holly, Warnick, Springer and more return in the second book of the Tell Me When I’m Dead series by author Steven Ramirez. Dave, Holly and others are able to get a hold of the reporter that’s been covering everything happening in Tres Marias. She and her cameraman are locked up somewhere but they’ve been doing extensive research. Before they flee the building, she writes down the name of a company that is somehow involved and flashes it to the video monitor before fleeing herself. This sets Dave and the others out and on a mission. While fleeing from their location, they are overrun by zombies or draggers as they are called in this series.

A new battalion of Black Dragons show up and rescue them along with Evie. Her cameraman, Jeff, had put himself in danger to allow Evie to get away. When they get back to the high school which is where Black Dragon was hosting their operations and survivors of the outbreak, they are all tested for the virus as Dr Isaac Fallow (from the first book) had been able to find a test with help from his immunologist friends he mentioned before. They all tested negative and they were assigned housing.


What did I just read? I have been engrossed in this book most of the day, taking occassional breaks for snackage and giving my eyes a break from my computer screen. The first book had me in love with the series. This book evokes so many emotions that I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. I have laughed, been mad, been upset and I have even CRIED while reading this book. I just…..UGH! Why did the author do this?! Lol. I, in no way, mean that in a bad way. I just can’t fathom WHY he would do what he did in this second book. I definitely have to read the third book in this series now to get closure!

Let’s just say, there’s a lot of fighting, action, adventure and suspense in this book. And when I say a lot, I mean A LOT. Like from the first page to the last. I think we can all agree from the types of book reviews I’ve posted that I’m a fan of anything paranormal really. This series, and I’ve only read the first two books of the trilogy, is awesome. These books have more depth to them than most other books I’ve read regarding zombies. The characters are very well developed and you either instantly like or hate them. Some you aren’t so sure about and flip back and forth between. The description of some of the places and scenes are so real that I felt like I was watching a movie as I was reading.
