10 Things I Loved About Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

After days of marathon reading sessions (I couldn't put it down but I also didn't want it to end!) I literally just finished reading SOMETHING STRANGE AND DEADLY and I am in awe!  Here are ten things I loved about this amazing book:

1. At times, I felt like I was reading/imagining a new version of Pride and Prejudice or Titanic...with zombies.
2. Girl power! 
3. Zombies (the gory, blood thirsty kind!)
4. The twisty plot.  Every new twist kept me eagerly turning the pages and thinking things like, "Oh, no he didn't!" and "Oh, ****!"
5. Daniel (need I say more? :))
6. The gadgets.  At first I wasn't sure if I was going to be a fan of the gadgets in this book (I spent too much time trying to speed read so I could get to another scene with Daniel! :P) But they were awesome!  Especially those goggels!
7. 1876.  After reading this book, I am more convinced then ever before that I was born in the wrong time period.
8. The Spirit-Hunters.  They felt like a real family, like Robin Hood's band of merry men.  Can I join?
9. The kiss...can you say hawt? *swoon*
10. The ending.  I was hit with a wave of emotions: Sadness, giddiness, strength, but most of all, hope.  I was left feeling like "if Elenor can do it, than so can I!" And I think that was the best feeling of all.

I want the sequel, NOW!
