Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion

5/5 Stars – It Was Amazing7619057

Format: Paperback

‘R’ is a zombie. He has no name, no memories and no pulse, but he has dreams. He is a little different from his fellow Dead.

Amongst the ruins of an abandoned city, R meets a girl. Her name is Julie and she is the opposite of everything he knows – warm and bright and very much alive, she is a blast of colour in a dreary grey landscape. For reasons he can’t understand, R chooses to save Julie instead of eating her, and a tense yet strangely tender relationship begins.

This has never happened before. It breaks rules and defies logic, but R is no longer content with life in the grave. He wants to breathe again, he wants to live, and Julie wants to help him. But their frim, rotting world won’t be changed without a fight…

Just as she is settling in, one by one the most talented students – the Exceptionals – go missing. In an attempt to find out what happened to them, Claire uncovers a dark prophecy foretelling a mysterious girl who will use her ability to save Cambial students from a dire fate. Could she be that girl? Does the gorgeous but secretive boy she meets in the woods know more than he’s letting on? After years of ignoring her special, Claire decides the time has come to embrace her ability … before it’s too late.
