“Another Kind of Dead by Kelly Meding (Dreg City: Book 3)
Picking up a few days after book 2, Evy discovers the hard way that some of the hybrid creatures found in the last book, the man-made ones that should be all locked up in the Triad's super-secret training facility, are showing up where they shouldn't. Battling them puts Evy on the wrong side of her past collogues, again, and things between she and Wyatt are hotter and bumpier than ever. I would still like to see a bit more romance, but man, what a rip roaring tale.”

I love this series but it is soooo fast paced. I have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that at the start of this book, the whole timeline has only been a few weeks! It picks right up after the last big fight where everyone thinks Evy died..again. Her and Wyatt are actually having some alone time when someone comes to their apartment and dies. Of course, their last words were "betrayal". On top of that, they find out there is a "mad" scientist unleashing hybrids. So much for alone time!
I love Evy ~ even with all her flaws and mistakes, she doesn't give up and she's always trying to do what's right. This book is really hard on her and at times, it's hard to read. And Wyatt...I've always liked him but he always seemed a little too goodie two shoes for me, until this book...and WOW, I certainly don't feel that way anymore. There's just something about the two of them together...they just fit.
I loved, LOVED the ending. In fact, I've read it several times. And it was great to have a bonus of the beginning of the next book, Wrong Side of Dead. Can't wait!!
"You're alive." Wyatt's voice had never sounded so...small. "You were dead, but Christ, Evy, you're alive."
I think this might actually be my favourite of the three so far. Evy gets put through living hell all over again. She's one tough lady.
Now I have to wait until; January 2012 for more!

“Loved it! Fantastic continuation of the series! Just when you think Evy couldn't get any more bad-@ss... Yea for Wyatt, too! Can't tell you though. I don't want to spoil it :)”June Kramin wrote this review Wednesday, August 24, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“The sheer amount of horrors Evy has survived is amazing. That total stepped up to an incredible amount by the end of Another Kind of Dead. I've read many series where the main character is put through hell and back, but never in such a short amount of time as Evy has had. How she has the willpower to keep dragging her bleeding and broken body into fight after fight without rest is simply beyond me. Yes, she has supernatural healing powers, but they are no where near instantaneous, and she still feels the full pain of every injury, and they do nothing to help her mental stability. Those healing capabilities get tested to their ultimate limit in Another Kind of Dead. If you thought Evy had suffered before, you really haven't seen anything yet.
Evy Stone, now in hiding since she died and came back with some extra abilities, then almost died again. Since almost everyone thought the second death was real, she's decided to lay low. Of course that isn't the easiest thing for Evy as she is a trouble magnet. This time it's a crazy scientist who is on a path of vengeance, determined to stop vampirism at all costs. Right now his obsession is Evy as she may hold the key to his illustrious cure. But, just because he wants her alive, doesn't mean her friends are safe as he will do anything he can to get his hands on her. Evy knows she must do everything she can to keep the ones she loves safe, even if it means the ultimate sacrifice.
I love the dynamic between Evy and Wyatt. Their love for one another is so incredibly strong, yet so very fragile as well. They need each other more than anything, yet neither one seems to know what to do with that fact. At times the progression has felt gratingly slow, but then I force myself to take a step back to realize that while this may be the third book, at the start, only about two weeks has passed. So, when you consider everything that has happened to them as obstacles to their relationship, it is a wonder they stand a chance at all. I think that more than anything shows just how much they belong together. The brevity of their time together made everything seem so much precious and sweet, so I fell even harder for the two as a couple. I know this is a wish with very slim odds, but I really hope they get a little more time together before the next crisis hits, as they have more than earned it.
Like its predecessors, Another Kind of Dead is one big roller coaster ride from start to finish. It is so full of loops and turns that barely give the characters (and readers) a chance to take a breath. You won't find any slackers here, just a set of characters determined to stand up for what is right no matter the personal cost. I was on the edge of my seat until the very last word, and while there wasn't a cliffhanger ending, there was still more than plenty things left open to make me more than a little desperate to get my hands on the next installment. My hat goes off to Kelly Meding for another great installment in the Dreg City Series. You won't want to miss this!”
