Generation Dead was one of our most popular titles last year and this exciting sequel is likely to hit the mark too. It’s paranormal romance at its gripping best and goes to prove that readers just can’t get enough of books in this area. Quirky and compelling, fans of Scott Westerfeld and Stephenie Meyer will love it.

Synopsis

Kiss Of Life by Daniel Waters

When Phoebe's best friend Adam takes a bullet for her, it proves everyone right - Adam is in love with her. And now that he's come back to life, Phoebe's presence may be more important than ever. They say that a zombie can come back from death faster if they're loved...and kissed - which means Phoebe has to say goodbye to Tommy Williams, the other zombie in her life.

And the dead kids in Phoebe's school don't like that one bit...

The exciting sequel to the hugely successful Generation Dead.

Reviews

‘Waters is brilliant at bringing the undead to life, making this an uncomfortable and unusual young adult title, without a munched brain in site’ - SFX Magazine

Q+A with Daniel Water

What made you first want to become a writer?

I had a major epiphany regarding writing when I was in the fourth grade. We had to write sentences using our weekly spelling words, and the teacher would pick the best of these to read to the class. One day (probably when I was supposed to be paying attention in another class) I was looking at the words of the week and they seemed to fit together in a story, so instead of sentences I wrote a story.. The teacher ended up reading the whole thing to the class even thought it was a horror story, which I thought was pretty cool. The following week I started the first chapter of a serial, which the teacher again read. Soon after, other kids in the class started doing stories, and it could get quite competitive. I always managed to get the serial read, though, for the rest of the school year.

I promise I will try to only use my powers for good.

Generation Dead is actually the thirteenth novel I've written (the others are locked safely away for the time being). None of them, GD included, were consciously written as YA.

That being said, I'm happy to be classified as being an author of YA books, because I think that's where a great deal of enthusiasm is in the book world right now, both among publishers and readers--there really is a surfeit of good books and good authors to be found in the YA section of your local book store.

Do you think zombies are the new vampires?

If you could be alive or dead (as a zombie), which would you choose and why?

Do you have a favorite character?

Other people's characters: Holden Caulfield.

Arrrrggggh. I feel like a little kid that has been told they can only have one stuffed animal on their bed at a time, while all the others have to sit on the floor in a big heap, watching with their sad glass eyes.

What about a favorite cliche?

Do you have any other books planned?

I have whole libraries planned.
