Half Past Dead is a two-novella collection. One of the novellas is Zoe Archer's Undying Heart, which is the prequel for the Blades of the Rose series.

Skip, skip, skip.

Even if you can deal with a zombie as the romantic lead, the novella suffers from stuffing in waaaaay too much exposition and sex. I started skimming, then skipping, then jumped to the end. Honoria Graves (Catullus Graves' grandma) was awesome. The rest was predictable and the resolution problematic.

There were a few more lovely anti-racism bingos in the text (I died when Graves pointed out that no, all Caribbean islands are not interchangeable), but totally not worth the revulsion factor.

Oh, well.

I still highly recommend the Blades of the Rose series!
