Middle Grade Monday With Ava: Dead City: Blue Moon by James Ponti

Dead City: Blue Moon
by: James Ponti
Now Available!!!
Publisher: Aladdin
Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads:
Molly is ready for more nonstop, undead action in this follow-up to Dead City, which Kirkus Reviews described as “a fast-paced read for those who like their zombies with just a little fright.”
When Molly Bigelow discovered that zombies shared New York with humans, she didn’t think life could get more shocking. Then she learned that her mother was once one of the greatest zombie killers ever—and she discovered that her dead mother is not technically dead at all (although she isn’t alive, either).

Molly’s efforts to keep these secrets and to help her Omega team track down the identity of the original thirteen zombies will take her from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade to New Year’s Eve in Times Square. Her loyalties to friends and family will be put to the test. And her life will be changed in ways she never could have imagined.

Ava's Thoughts:


After Molly's rooftop battle with Marek Blackwell (and after killing him) Molly's Omega team is suspended because of some things she did. Also, meeting her undead mother who came to her rescue, then mysteriously leaving. While their team is suspended, they hear about an alarming fatal event. Unfortunately, they have to avoid all Omega activity.

Before their hearing, they are told by a former Omega to say they were asked to work on the Baker's Dozen, a mysterious case all about the Unlucky 13. This puts them back in business. 

But this mission takes many twists and turns. Is Marek still alive? What is the Blue Moon? And more importantly, are people who they say they are? 

This book is full of mystery, suspense, action and adventure. After the first Dead City book, this is must-read! Be sure to pick up this book!

  1. I haven't read the first book yet so I simple skipped the review to get an idea of what you thought. Glad you enjoyed it. I might have to see if my library has the first book :)

  2. Having your parent be a zombie sounds awful. This book reminds a little of the Alice in Zombieland series.
