Review: Dead is a Battlefield

Dead is a Battlefield
by Marlene Perez
Dead Is series, book six
Book Description:
Jessica Walsh is starting her freshman year at Nightshade High and trying to forget about the tragic events surrounding her brother’s graduation. She wants to have a normal high school experience. But that’s easier said than done in Nightshade. There’s a new guy at school who seems to be turning the girls into lovesick zombies. And Jessica has other worries—like her crush on a cute but moody lead singer, and the mysterious tattoo that appeared on her arm one day that lets her know whenever there is trouble brewing. Jessica learns she’s a Virago, a woman warrior chosen to fight evil whenever it threatens her hometown. But does a lowly freshman really have what it takes to keep Nightshade safe?
I LOVE this series. 
They are fun to read, super quick reads and each turns out to be a pure guilty pleasure.
Technically this is book six in the Dead Is series, but it feels totally fresh because there is a new main character. The first five books (starting with Dead is the New Black) feature Daisy Giordano as the main character.  She is a sassy psychic trying to navigate high school, dating, and family issues while living in a town populated by vampires, werewolves, ghosts, psychics, and more! Daisy is a super fun character, but so is Jessica Walsh.  She is also actually the younger sister of Daisy's best friend's boyfriend, so while Daisy and her crew have all graduated from Nightshade High and moved on, there are still great ties to the first five books. 
I cannot wait to see what happens next in Dead is a Killer Tune (coming out in Sept.)!
