Book 1 of the Dead is…. series
Nightshade, California has always been a little bit different, but then again, so is the Giordano family. In fact, Daisy may be the only member of her clan that is not a psychic. So when the n ew school year begins and the most popular girl in school, Samantha, turns up looking fabulously dead, no one seeems to think anything is wrong. Soon the cheerleaders are all mimicking Samantha’s Goth girl chic, but when a neighboring teenager is attacked and some of the cheerleaders start having weird seizures, Daisy realizes that something is very very wrong. It is up to her and her psychic sisters to uncover what is really going on in Nightshade before dead isn’t just a fashion statement.
Honestly, this series sells itself. It is bright, colorful, short, and full of humor and sweet romance. Add a dash of magic or supernatural and you have a winner. I stress how much fun the series is and even admitted that I couldn’t read it fast enough and can’t wait for the series to continue.
This is a series and there are several already published so there is more to look forward to and enjoy.
For readers uncomfortable with supernatural themes, this is all in good fun and there is really nothing very spooky or alarming. I cannot imagine that many would have nightmares as a result.
Again, Daisy and her sisters are great, strong, fun characters that most readers will enjoy following on their journey.
