Bayou Dogs by Tony Abbott

To see my review of the first book in this series, click here: City of the Dead.


Title: Bayou Dogs (The Haunting of Derek Stone #2)
Author: Tony Abbott
Reviewer: Karen
Genre: YA Horror/Paranormal
Rating: Adore
Alerts/Warnings: People dying and coming back as zombies (but very tamely described)
Premise: ""Derek's brother Ronny isn't himself. No, really. Ronny's body has been taken over by the long-dead soul of a man named Virgil Black. Lucky for him, Virgil is one of the good guys. Not all of them are. In fact, a Legion of evil souls is staging a serious comeback. And they're staging it at Bayou Malpierre, the site of Derek's most horrible nightmare. That nightmare is about to get even worse..."  - Back Cover
Opinions: For a zombie story I really liked this book (and I hate zombies). It's an easy read. I was able to get it done in a couple of hours. I am fascinated by the plot and I think I know where the story is going, but I'll have to read the next book, The Haunting of Derek Stone: The Red House, to find out for sure.  There was suspense, action scenes, and interesting twists. Overall I feel this series reads more on the younger end of YA, though it was shelved as a YA book. However, I still enjoyed it as an adult.
