    Waking the Dead is a non-stop adventure.

    Waking the Dead by Kerry Blaisdell is the second book in The Dead Series. This book continues where book one left off but a stand alone novel. This book is full of interesting characters who include a dead aunt Hyacinth with a demon nephew Geordi, her demon ex-boy friend Jason, a ghost Eric, and angel Michael. The main character Hyacinth is trying to do the job she agreed to do which is to find and collect special shards of rock for Michael before hells denizens can collect these same shards. The only problem is that Michael gave her a side job to do and that “job” keeps interfering with her ability to do anything except look just slightly crazy to the normal living people around her. This book is seriously like a fun house full of adventures, you never know what might happen when you read the next page. I loved the way this book never followed a discernable pattern. Random strange things kept happening to the characters which made me laugh and kept me hooked reading until the very last page. This book is the perfect book for anyone who enjoys a good mystery with paranormal characters and a little romance on the side. Waking the Dead is a non-stop paranormal adventure.

    Fascinating and well done

    I am really impressed with this author and their way of weaving words, mythologies, religion, and the dichotomy of death and life in a way that is believable. The first book in this series hooked me, and now this one has me fully invested in this idea of being both dead and alive, and all the complexities that involve being human combined with the aforementioned idea. Now I’m inspired to read more about ancient history and religions. Kudos to the author. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    A wonderful paranormal suspense

    This is book 2 in the Dead series by Kerry Blaisdell and picks up where book 1, Debriefing the Dead, ended. Hyacinth is still working for Michael in sorting dead souls and finding the missing shards of Michael's staff. There is a diverse group of characters assisting Hyacinth on these missions. But as she zeroes in on one of the shards, Hyacinth ends up in a heap of trouble. With a lot of ingenuity and luck, this book reaches a stunning conclusion.

    Great 2nd book

    I admire anyone who can write a good 2nd book of a trilogy. I believe it is most challenging one to write since the world has been created, yet the entire plot line cannot be wrapped up. But Kerry Blaisdell did a fantastic job. If you enjoyed Debriefing the Dead, I think you will enjoy Waking the Dead. It has the same great characters, including Hyacinch. The book is told in 1st person, and It's her great quirky voice that carries the book. The book is far from serious, but is such a fun, creative read, and made me laugh. It's helpful to have read book 1, but there are enough reminders in this book that if it's been awhile, or if you haven't read book 1, you'll be able to catch on quickly.
