Goodreads Summary: "Be careful what you wish for. . .I'm not sure what I was expecting when I went to read Cold Kiss...all I know was that it was nothing like them. I ended up with Cold Kiss on my wishlist as a result of severe cover lust [One of the most creepy yet gorgeous covers I've seen!] and the fact that there were zombies involved. My boyfriend is a huge zombie buff and I'm constantly trying to play catch up and impress him with my knowledge of the undead. We're an odd couple like that. ANYWAY.
When Wren's boyfriend, Danny, died, Wren decided that what she wanted—what she had to do—was to bring Danny back. And so, in a heartbroken fury, armed with dark incantations and a secret power, she did.
But the Danny who returns isn't the boy Wren fell in love with, and she must hide him away while her life unravels around her. Then Gabriel transfers to her school and somehow he knows what she has done—and he wants to help make things right.
But Wren alone must undo what she has wrought—even if it means breaking her heart all over again."
There's torment, heartbreak and loss. But it wasn't quite what I expected from a novel about a girl dating a zombie, her boyfriend whom she personally raised from the dead. Cold Kiss just isn't your typical zombie read. Its a love story, its a story of magic, its a story of finding yourself, and its a story about a family...and then there is the zombie boyfriend who isn't your stereotypical zombie. More of an animated puppet in a way.
In a nutshell? I couldn't in good faith recommend this to fans of zombies and the undead. Its not really for fans of paranormal romance either. At least not in the way you might immediately think. Cold Kiss isn't an easy novel to categorize. Its in a niche of its own. Overall, an okay read but I don't think I'll be in a hurry to download the sequel.
