The Dead Is series is pretty good. I wish it continued with Daisy, though. Jessica wasn't as interesting to me. I still can't believe what happened to Ryan's dad! D: What a surprising ending! Can't wait to read Dead is a Killer Tune.

I really enjoyed this series. I wish it didn't end. I loved all the characters, and the plots of the story were always different. This series was very refreshing. Definitely recommended!

Actually, there is another book. It recently came out and it's called Dead Is A Battle Field. I bought it at school. Sadly, it isn't about Daisy. I'm assuming because Marlene didn't want to focus on her in college. The summary off of the back is the following:

Jessica Walsh is starting her freshman year at Nightshade High and trying to forget about the tragic events surrounding her brother's graduation. She wants to have a normal high school experience. But that's easier said than done in Nightshade.

When a new boy shows up at school, the girls are infected with a case of seriously creepy crushes. But when their obsession turns to violence, Jessica and her friends start to wonder is there's more going on than just a little friendly rivalry. Are the smitten girls turning into love zombies?

And Jessica has other worries-like her crush on Dominic Gray, the cute but moody new singer for Side Effects May Vary, and the mysterious tattoo that appeared on her arm one day that lets her know whenever there is trouble brewing. Jessica learns she's a Virago, a woman warrior chosen to fight evil whenever it threatens her hometown. But does a lowly freshman have what it takes to keep Nightshade safe?
Jessica is Sean's younger sister, in case you didn't know.

Dead Is A Killer Tune is the next one. For more details, go to

it was a huge disappointment to me, because it's the last book, for pete's sake! on my opinion, it should've been more epic! the series sort of turned into a down turn...:/
plus, the ending WAS surprising, but not very impressive. i'm not so much surprised that this series isn't as popular as other series...:/
