I so loved this book! Mr. Banner was able to put a new spin on the zombie revolution with this little gem of a story. Not only are we dealing with Humans and Zombies (Deathless) but add to that mix a group of the Un [...]
I was given this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.To start off, I was iffy about reading this book and joining the book tour. I know the author lives near me, and we will be going to the same events in the Houston area and didn't want to make things awkward.Starting the book, I was wary. But I had been bossed by a good friend and fellow blogger (I feel the need, the need to read), so I had to give into her whims. I have one thing to say to you, Angela Pratt, THANK YOU!Holy flu [...]
Five big fat, zombie shaped awesome, toe curling, mouth gaping stars!**review to follow**I was recommended this book by an author. They warned me it was a great book and a great twist on zombies, but I'll be honest, I let it sit on my kindle a good couple of weeks before I dived in because I hate new takes on zombies! I'm an old school zombie writer, slow and shambling, brainless and violent.This is NOT like that and yet it actually IS on so many levels. It's a new twist with a twist of the old [...]
I liked this book. I like dystopian zombie books so I'm glad a friend encouraged me to read this. I liked Banner's take on it. In simplest terms, he's written from the pov of the zombie. But not in the love-conquers-all Warm Bodies kind of way. Winter is undead. She was razed from the ground, given a name, clothes, a home, her body has been spruced up and now she's living in a community with other undead that pretends they're not. They are civilized. They function the way a human community would [...]
The Beautiful Dead is a wonderfully written book about zombies with a creative twist. I'm not a zombie connoisseur, but I've read my share of post apocalyptic zombie stories. This book takes our notion of zombies and turns them on their head. This addition to zombie lore is an important one, and a story that you don't want to miss.Winter is a newly raised undead. She was not bitten by another zombie. She did not contract some horrible disease that makes her eat other people. She was raised from [...]
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*The Beautiful Dead is the first book in The Beautiful Dead trilogy.When I was asked to read this book, I told my husband “Hmmm sounds interesting, but odd. I’m not so sure about this.” He rolled his eyes at me and went on playing his Risk-type app on his phone. I ignored him. Curiosity won out and I accepted the book for review.WHAT A FIND! This book has many things going for it. First I want to get out my only small dislike [...]
Zombies have been done and done. I know. But this tale is a bit different. There are humans, the undead, and the deathless and they are all exist in this terrible post post apocalyptic reality. Not all zombies in The Beautiful Dead are evil. The undead are actually kind in their strange way. They want to recreate their lives from before. Kind of reminds me of The Uglies.Winter is an undead, pulled from the earth by her reaper. She goes about her second life with nothing but a few glimpses of her [...]
This is one of the best books I have read so far this year. I was looking for a change from my normal genre of romance and boy did I get a wonderful change. The writing blew me away. Such an imaginative story that draws you into this world of the undead. I highly recommend picking this book up and giving it a go!
5 stars!!!Wow! This was an incredible book. The story was so unique and unlike anything I have read before… A completely different take on the whole Zombie/undead/post apocalyptic concept which was really a cool idea! It was definitely very different from what I was expecting, but in this case, that is an EXTREMELY good thing. It was so refreshing to have such a unique story to read, and I really do not have one single negative thing to say about it. The first thing I did when I finished readi [...]
7/10This book first came to my attention when one of my favorite authors posted a link and said it looked good. I read the synopsis and thought, wow, that sounds really unique! And coming up on Halloween, I decided a zombie book was just the thing I needed! I really, really enjoyed this book!! Daryl Banner has a terrific, dark, sarcastic sense of humor, that kept me laughing out loud, even when I was terrified and disgustedeven when I was shocked and saddenede humor totally carried me through th [...]
Title: The Beautiful DeadAuthor: Daryl BannerPublisher: CreatespaceReviewed By: Arlena DeanRating: 4.5Review:"The Beautiful Dead" by Darryl Banner"She’s dead.In fact, the whole world’s dead. Every single person, apparently. Unburied and reimagined into a beautiful living-dead woman called Winter, she is doomed to spend the rest of eternity in a quaint, peaceful city with no hunger, no sickness and no bills to pay. Her Second Life is perfect in every way possible. So why is she so bent on des [...]
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.In The Beautiful Dead, the main character, Winter, is dead but has been brought back from the dead so to speak. She isn't alive, but she is walking, talking, and thinking. She doesn't breathe, doesn't eat or sleep. She also doesn't remember anything of her old life. Apparently this is a normal thing. There are people that raise the dead back to the semi-dead. Nobody knows why and nobody knows how. Winter isn't like the others becaus [...]
I've been in a bit of a book funk lately. Every book that I've read just reminds me of the one that I read before it. This book though, it brought me out of my book induced funk. Shit This book, it reminded me why I love to read. And that, that's the highest compliment I can pay an author.
I've always wanted to write a post apocalyptic book. This story line was great! And as others have said, unique. Kudos to you, Daryl. It's hard to come up with an original line these days. They've mostly all been done in one form or another.
***Review to come****If you haven't picked up this book I highly recommend that you do so NOW. It's fantastic and bloody brilliant!
FGMAMTC Blog #TopReads2015 Author InterviewFirst I must say, this is one of the best books I have read devoured in I don't know when. 5 stars is not high enough for what I would rate it. It's a post-apocolyptic zombie-ish story which has you thinking ehhh so much of that these days, but no there isn't anything like this. I never had any idea what would happen next. If I would've had 100 guesses to figure out where the plot was headed next in most parts of the story, I would have still gotten it [...]
PSA: This review is long overdue. EXTREMELY overdue. To the point where I am almost embarrassed that I hadn’t gotten to it yet. But I loved this book?!!! Oh my god I loved this book so much!!! Wow!!! Top 10!!! Incredible!!! Can you feel my enthusiasm? I’ve been letting this book soak forreal.Now write a second…please.I was lucky enough to have been given a copy of this book before it was released, and I have to say that I have absolutely nothing bad to say about it. No critiques, no misund [...]
We are undead. We don’t bleed, no matter if they take our legs or our arms or gorge us with knives. But most importantly, we feel no pain. The only anguish we experience is mental…psychological…and if you can conquer that, you will always win – even if you lose.So yeah, this book. This “zombie book” that I was unsure whether I wanted to read or not but did because I felt like reading something different. This “zombie book” is way more than just a “zombie book.” The Beautiful [...]
I was given this amazing book by my #popcornsoulmate Daryl BannerFirst off, my Lovelies You are the first to know that I do not read Zombie books I tend to stick with Billionaires, bikers, and tattooed alphas. But after chatting with Daryl well i thought why the heck not??Let me just say that although this is a non-zombie type of zombie book (if that makes any sense) I was completely awestruck at the extremely crazy original and fun world (or end of world) that Daryl created. I went in reading i [...]
Dark and thought-provoking, yet witty and humorous at the same time. Equal parts serious and absurd, and man, it works!The Beautiful Dead definitely gets the 'page turner' badge of honor, because once I got about halfway through the book, I could not put it down. Lots of plot twists--some I saw coming, others I didn't--and an amusing, fascinating, and unforgettable cast of characters makes this a really fun read. And beneath the 'fun' partere are some deep issues. What it means to fit in--or not [...]
Review: I was given a complimentary copy of The Beautiful dead by Pretty lil’ page turners for an honest review. Zombies aren’t usually my cup of tea but I enjoyed this book. This book was really interesting. I think that Daryl Banner did a great job on this book. He is a really talented writer. So Winter is a newly made undead woman. She is doomed to spend her second life in a perfect way. But she is hell bent on destroying it. Winter angers the mayor and befriends a rebel headless teenager [...]
I was given this book by the author for an honest review. To start off i have to say i hate zombies!i honestly to god hate themi am a vampire/werevolf/shifter/fairy/dragon/angel and anything and everything you can imagine kind of girl but not a zombie girl!So when Daryl gave this book i was likegosh i hope people are right and its more than zombie eating flesh crawling and all that jazz and i kept it for sometime in my book collectionen i started reading it and when i reached 50 pages i left it [...]
celebrityreaders.wordpressOk first off, I have to say that the blurb doesn’t do this book ANY kind of justice. It’s soooo much more than what is written. Think negative space, look between the lines. I think thats why it took me so long to start it honestly, it didn’t sound that interesting to me.This book was wonderfully different than what I was expecting. I have read his Brazen Boys series and was expecting a bit more in the romance department because of that. I’m glad it wasn’t lik [...]
The Beautiful Dead by Daryl BannerI received this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review through the “Lovers of Paranormal” Group on I have to begin by saying that this book is possibly the best Zombie book I have ever read. It was fantastic and I could not put this book down. This book is a refreshing take on the good old Zombie story. It is humorous and action packed. It has so many twists and turns that I found myself reading until the early hours of the morning just to see [...]
Genre: ZombieAuthor: Daryl BannerBook: The Beautiful DeadMy star rating: 4 out of 5I received this book to read and give my honest opinion. I have read the whole book and this is my honest opinion. This book was a great shock to me. Usually zombie books bore me but this caught my attention right from the start. Got to say that I love how the author put in some sarcasm and it flowed great. I did know who the King was but it was well played out. I liked the many twist and turns of this book and wo [...]
(Source: I recieved a free copy in exchange for an honest review) WOAH!! I really loved this book. It was gripping and I couldn't stop reading it! I was really upset when I had to stop reading because my brother for hurt and was in hospita,l but, my brother was hurt so badly that I had to stop and I hate my brother for it! (Haha!!) Characters: Winter: I loved Winter and with all the stuff she went through it was so exhilarating.Grimsky: Went from loved to hated! Marigold: Aww! She was SO sweet! [...]
This is another excellent read by Daryl Banner. I laughed a lot. The humor is dry and sarcastic, which is right up my alley! I was totally grossed out sometimes (in the good way). I cheered, and I worried, and I fell in love (and hate, and a little love/hate) with another set of great complex characters!I loved how it was written is such a way that you couldn’t really figure anything out until you were supposed to, which was usually just before or right along with Winter. I absolutely adore th [...]
Huge fan of the Walking Dead here's gory and sexy and funny and despite the nasty zombies, a really awesome family drama. I pretty much feel the same way about this zombie-non-zombie-multiple kind of zombie book. Confusing? Well it won't be when you read it!I was sucked in immediately at the prologueWinter is a girl who is "raised" up from the earth and gets to live another life in a new form. Not complicated, but her feelings about herself and her new world are very complicated and the adventur [...]
This book has the feel of Warm Bodies the movie. It is a very fun read and kinda crazy all in one. Not sure I would want to wake up in a strange place and be told I am undead, although a make over is kinda nice. This author brings this little town and all the characters to life. Winter has so much spunk and is always curious and questioning everything. Grim is very secretive and different. John is also a mystery and very moody but who can blame him when he is the only heartbeat in a town of unde [...]
