Undeserving - Madeline Sheehan

OMGOODNESS!!! love this story. Had me in tears majority of the time. I wish things could have been way hotter with Preacher & Debbie(Eva's Mom), it just seemed way too tamed for Madeline within this series. Considering with what we've been given with the other stories in this series. So that left me wanting BIG TIME. But the execution of all other things here, and the way certain things were brought to light, I had to still give this one 5*.

Although, and this is an after thought, THE REVELATION of the the unexpected truth that Preacher found out, I wish somehow, the details of that could have been given to us, the reader, in real time. Like a truth only we actually get to see but the characters will never know.

Other than that, this was an awesome read. I would HIGHLY recommend this one.
I recommend this entire series. Please read in order.

I read the first book in this series way back in 2014 when Biker books were totally my thing.Over the years my tastes have changed dramatically and I kind of forgot about this series...this one wasn't even on my radar until i saw a friend's status update and to be honest I wasn't that interested in Preacher's story but I thought,why not?
My God....I'm so glad I decided to read it.It's quite simply stunning...I honestly don't have enough words to describe how much I was captivated here.

It's about,

Love,
Loss,
Betrayal,
How one chance encounter can have such a dramatic effect on so many lives.


It's,

Dark,
Gritty,
Happy,
Sad.


The story of Preacher and Debbie....
Two worlds collide and the outcome left me stunned.

Preacher is kind of lost,not sure which world he belongs to anymore when he meets Debbie,a teenage runaway.Don't go into this one expecting lots of hot,dirty,biker sex because it's not that kind of book.It's about two people finding each other at a point in their lives when they both needed something


I loved,

-There is no insta lust/love here which made the story so much more poignant and believable.

-told from past to present,which made it all the more dramatic.

-the supporting characters all played their part,even if some weren't likable.

-my heart literally broke for Preacher and Debbie as their story unfolded.

There is nothing I didn't love about this book.It's a tough read,though....at one point I couldn't even read the words through my tears.I especially found reading Eva's pov and Preacher's towards the end unbelievably emotional.


Conclusion: this book wrecked me in the worst and best way.

Thicker Than Blood by Madeline Sheehan and Claire C Riley
Thicker Than Blood - Claire C. Riley,Madeline Sheehan

Well-written, chock full of zombie gore and the depravity that "humanity" can reach in a state of lawlessness, sad and no happily ever after. It's everything you want and expect in a book about a zombie apocalypse.

 

But mixed in through that is the story of the love between two women, two best friends--soulmates, determined to stick together through thick and thin, and especially the thin. It's the love and fight these two have for each other that makes this book. This isn't the best zombie related book I've ever read, but everything about Evelyn, Leisel and their relationship with each other is what makes this book worth reading.

 

"Always together, I promise."

Beneath Blood and Bone
Beneath Blood and Bone - Madeline Sheehan,Claire C. Riley

There are so many things I like about this series. The reader never knows what to expect. The storylines follow no patterns, and the books thus far are very different. Even though it's fiction, it's real. The decay and stench of life at it lowest are in vivid technicolor and jumping off the page at the reader's senses. At the same time, sparks of humanity that can't be snuffed out always shine through.

In the first book, E was not the hero, and he still isn't. He's the antihero. He's been through hell (the reader learns of this in flashbacks) and came out the other side. Life has no meaning for him anymore. Full of hate, he's only a shell surviving out of habit.

We don't really know anything about Autumn going into Beneath Blood and Bone. She pretty much appears to be cuckoo for cocoa puffs. Full of fear, she's regressed to a snarling animal surviving on instinct.

Most of the plot in this book takes place in the camp called Purgatory (so many things can be read into that name). It's a place without joy. Day to day survival is how it breaks down. The bold lord over the meek. Liv is the queen bitch. She wants to control everything with E being at the top of the list. It doesn't go over well when he takes an interest in Autumn.

I didn't hate E in the first book. He wasn't a good guy at all, but I still couldn't raise up feelings to hate level for him. Although E compares his likeness to Liv's more than once in this book, I was prepared to slit her throat myself.

Overall, it's a story about the human condition. When is enough, enough? What is the point of living? How far gone can someone come back from? I loved it, muy mucho, and I'm looking forward to more from these authors.

P.S. E did win me over. I don't excuse him for the bad things, but I still can't help loving him either. And that's the way love goes.
