Series: The Other Life
Genre: Horror, Zombies, Young Adult
Publisher: Marshall Cavendish Children's Books
Expected Publication Date: Unknown*
*UK readers The Life Beyond was released March 1st
15, 323 hours since Sherry listened to one of her father's bedtime stories. 30, 657 minutes since she heard his laughter.
Sherry's father's life is hanging in the balance... And if he turns into a Weeper, Sherry and Joshua know that the only way to save him lies on the other side of the fence - the barrier cutting them off from the rest of the world.
With Tyler and Rachel, they set off into the unknown, driven by the promise of a cure, and the hope of reclaiming the life they once knew. But they find that there are more than just Weepers standing in their way...
There is no going back. There is only beyond.
Why Am I waiting?
I really loved the first book in this series The Other Life when I read it through Netgalley last year. I even hunted down a signed copy from The UK after reviewing because I preferred that cover (plus had it signed by the author woot!!). I honestly have no clue when the US release date will be unfortunately. I looked online but couldn't find anything about a US release day and recently there have been many rumors saying this series is cancelled. If this rumor turns out being true I will be one very

Awesome! I know not everyone is as big a zombie fan as I am but these Weepers are different enough I think fans on the fence of the genre will really find them enjoyable.Delete

Looks awesome!!!! but I get really uncomfortable with zombies :(ReplyDelete

Unfortunately as mentioned above I have no clue when the sequel will come out in the US. Maybe if enough people support it :(Delete
Huh. How did I not know this series was about zombies? I mean, I guess it's a good thing I haven't started it yet since there's no indication of a US release date for this sequel, but still. I like to think I'm pretty good at keeping up with all things zombie. :PReplyDelete
Well they aren't traditional Zombies they're infected.... I like them though nonetheless.Delete
Great pick! I haven't read the first book, but I like the premise (zombies, baby!). I need to make space for it on my TBR, though I really don't know if that is even possible (it's humongous!). Thanks for reminding me about this series! :)
Aye, I hear you about the humongous TBR. Not enough time in the day, I tell ya.Delete
I have not read The Other Life, but I think it's been on my Goodreads list for a while! Must read it soon so I can catch up! Thanks for the suggestion.ReplyDelete
Here's my WOW.
You must be the one I got this from last week:)Delete
Ooh hadn't heard about that series yet -- I do love the cover, though. I may have to check out the first book!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing!

Oh me too! I really enjoyed the first one but it was so short! I'm excited to see what happens!ReplyDelete
It was short true but action packed!Delete
This sounds like the kind of zombie story that is beyong me. ;) But I know what it's like to have a series you love cancelled T.T, and I hope it turns out to be just an ugly rumor for you! My WoWReplyDelete
Thanks, I hope so as well.Delete
Sounds like a great choice, enjoy!ReplyDelete
I love this cover, and the synopsis is sad but so intriguing! I really hope the series hasn't been canceled - I want to read it! I need to know about these Weepers! Thanks for sharing and for stopping by. Happy Reading :DReplyDelete
I have the first book somewhere on my shelves, but I haven't gotten to it yet - I keep forgetting it's about zombies!ReplyDelete
Great pick :-D
Awww I hope it isn't cancelled for you! Great pick :).ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by.
I can't wait for this either!ReplyDelete

I don't know this series! It sounds so great.ReplyDelete
I'm not familiar with this series but the blurb for the second book is very interesting-hopefully it wasn't cancelled and you'll get all your answers!ReplyDelete
I've seen The Other Life around a little bit and I never read the description I don't think though! This one sounds interesting. Curious about what a Weeper is?! Thanks for stopping by!ReplyDelete
I love that I recognized the cover for the series it is in right away. I love when things match. I'm not huge into zombies but they do sound interesting. I hope you get to read it soon! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my post!

I am so angry about the second book!!!!! I loved "The other life" so much it was one of the best books I've ever read. Then when I finished it I wanted to order the next one, and it said "out of print" like what the HELL!? There is no WAY I can live without reading the next one!! There was just no reason for the publishers to "cancel" it!!! THOSE ASSES!!ReplyDelete
