Queen of the Dead Early Review

After being sent back from the light, Alona Dare - former homecoming queen, current Queen of the Dead - finds herself doing something she never expected: working. Instead of spending days perfecting her tan by the pool (her typical summer routine when she was, you know, alive), Alona must now cater to the needs of other lost spirits. By her side for all of this - ugh - “helping of others” is Will Killian: social outcast, seer of the dead, and someone Alona cares about more than she’d like.
Before Alona can make a final ruling on Will’s “friend” or “more” status, though, she discovers trouble at home. Her mom is tossing out Alona’s most valuable possessions, and her dad is expecting a new daughter with his wicked wife. Is it possible her family is already moving on? Hello! She’s only been dead for two months! Thankfully, Alona knows just the guy who can put a stop to this mess.
Unfortunately for Alona, Will has other stuff on his mind, and Mina, a young (and beautiful) seer, is at the top of the list. She’s the first ghost-talker Will’s ever met—aside from his father—and she may hold answers to Will’s troubled past. But can she be trusted? Alona immediately puts a check mark in the “clearly not” column. But Will is - ahem - willing to find out, even if it means leaving a hurt and angry Alona to her own devices, which is never a good idea.
Packed with romance, lovable characters, and a killer cliffhanger, Queen of the Dead is the out-of-this-world sequel to The Ghost and the Goth. (Synopsis provided by goodreads)

I LOVED this book! It picks up right were book one ended and like book one, it leaves the reader wanting to know what happens right away. This has an even bigger cliff hanger then the first!
Alona and Will are back and better then ever in the sequal! We get to learn more about Will's family and more about Alona's past. 
Queen of the Dead is packed with new friends and a spot light is shown on an old one. So much happens in this one that it's hard to put down. 
Kade makes us laugh again in this one and we get to see how Alona and Will's characters develop further in the sequel, the dialog never misses, Kade has done it again!

Overall rating ***** 5 out of 5 stars
Cover art I just love how cute the cover art is for this book!
