Taste - Kate Evangelista Could not put down! This is a nice twist on zombie stories. The writing was very vivid and I could easily visualize the Academy with it's old architecture and dark hallways. Phoenix was at times very brave and at others annoying. She is clearly wounded and uses humor and sarcasm to hide the pain but I really wished she would shut up!

To me it was clear who the leading guy would be. Both Luka and Demitri were interesting characters. One dark and brooding and the other a ray of sunshine and full of carefree spirit. My only complaint was that there seemed to be holes in the story. Some parts - like the love aspect - felt too rushed, while others seemed to drag on a bit.

Overall a nice human/zombie story with action, court politics and drama and love.
