Never-DEAD by Ann Greyson is an interesting story that will appeal to fans of science fiction that features zombies. Humanity is facing a very serious threat: a powerful virus is resurrecting the dead. It is up to Julie Mehta, a virologist, to invent a cure that can stop humanity from contracting the virus, and she is running out of time as the never-dead move towards major cities. Hannah Winter heads the Biogenetics and Disease Control research company in Dulce, New Mexico, and all she wants is to reunite with her nineteen-year-old sister, Jenna, who is traveling from San Antonio, Texas. But can she outwit the zombies and reach her sister unharmed? The stakes are high and the tension is mounting with every minute.

Never-DEAD by Ann Greyson is well-plotted and from the very beginning, the reader is introduced to the premise that life isn’t what it used to be. Dangerous creatures are lurking the streets and hunting for humans. The descriptions are strong and vivid and the dialogues well-crafted. I loved the imagery from the very first page. Ann Greyson allows readers to see the images and the scenes in their mind’s eye and follow characters through tense and dangerous situations. The setting takes note of the language and cultural elements. The crisp writing and richly developed characters make Never-DEAD an enjoyable read. It is fun following characters that beat the never-dead and make narrow escapes. The story is pulsating and fast-paced, littered with surprises.
