Blue Moon

by James Ponti

Molly is ready for more nonstop, undead action in this follow-up to Dead City, which Kirkus Reviews described as "a fast-paced read for those who like their zombies with just a little fright."When Molly Bigelow discovered that zombies shared New York with humans, she didn't think life could get more shocking. Then she learned that her mother was once one of the greatest zombie killers ever--and she discovered that her dead mother is not technically dead after all (although she isn't alive, either). Molly's efforts to keep these secrets and to help her Omega team track down the identity of the original thirteen zombies will take her from the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade to New Year's Eve in Times Square. Her loyalties to friends and family will be put to the test. And her life will be changed in ways she never could have imagined.

Dark Days

by James Ponti

Molly's up against the undead--and the fate of Manhattan is in her hands--in the third and final book of the Dead City trilogy, which Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins says "breathes new life into the zombie genre."Molly and the Omegas fight to contain the storm unleashed by Operation Blue Moon. As they do, Molly's personal life is thrown into turmoil when she discovers that one of her closest friends has joined the ranks of the undead, a development that threatens the Omegas as well as Molly's relationship with her mother. As Molly and her friends fight the Dead Squad (a special NYPD task force made up entirely of zombies), they discover that the world's largest gold reserve is kept in a vault eighty feet below the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. They find a photograph of the vault's construction in the 1920s and realize that the construction crew was led by none other than the leader of the undead, Marek Blackwell. Could this explain the source of all his money? And if so, what is he planning to do with it? Is he rebuilding Dead City...or is he building an undead army?
