Dearly, Departed - Lia Habel I admit, it took me a while to get into Dearly, Departed properly - the infodumps in the beginning were particularly heavy going, although with this sort of rather different worldbuilding (22nd century, basically post-apocalyptic, steampunk/New Victorian world, with zombies), it was both somewhat justified and useful.

Anyway. Once it did get going, I enjoyed the book a great deal - although oddly enough, I think Pamela's chapters were my favourite, and I ended up finding her a more interesting character than either Bram or Nora. And while I didn't mind the zombie part of the zombie romance, it just felt a bit... hmm... lifeless? I mean, I could see why it happened, I just didn't feel all that involved. Which is a bit of a pity as one so rarely gets romances with properly (un)dead people in books - undead people who aren't sexy vampires, anyway.

I loved the world-building, though, and the plot was involving enough.
