drey's thoughts:
I'm adding Kelly Meding to my list of authors to stalk. Because Three Days to Dead is good. Dang good! It grabbed me from the first few sentences:
I don't recall the first time I died, but I do remember the second time I was born. Vividly. Waking up on a cold morgue table surrounded by surgical instruments and autopsy paraphernalia, to the tune of the medical examiner's high-pitched shrieks of fright, is an unforgettable experience.

How could you not want to keep reading with that as the starting point? And it doesn't stop there either. Before I continue, I have to admit some confusion as to the numbers that start off each chapter. Until that was explained, the light bulb went on, and I went "duh!".

Three Days to Dead grabs you and drags you along as Evy tries to figure out how and why she died, who did it, and how to stay alive (this time). Because her resurrection has a time limit. As she races to piece together the events leading up to her death, she finds out that her death was nothing more than an insignificant part in a grand plan to bring evil into this world. Makes a girl feel real appreciated, doesn't it?

Kelly Meding has created a world where humans and non-humans are segregated, and a breed of Hunters are the only thing keeping the non-humans in line and out of sight of humans... And she keeps the action moving with nail-biting, fist-clenching scenes that you pray Evy makes it through. Urban fantasy fans, pick this up. You won't put it down until you're reading the very last page and heave a huge sigh of relief. Before you run out to pick up the next book (As Lie the Dead), of course!
