Life is complicated for Tyler Grayle.
His boss hates him, his car just died, he hasn't had sex in
two years, and worst of all, he's dead. After Dante's Comet
passed by Earth, the dead began returning to life, some
right after death, others a long time after. Luckily, Tyler
was only dead for a few hours before he reanimated, but it's
still hard on a guy's love life not to have a pulse. One
weekend, his best friend Daniel confesses he's wanted Tyler
for years. Tyler is thrilled, but with hatred against the
undead rising up again, will they be able to find happiness?
In As Serious as the Grave, Kiernan Kelly took
a dark, seemingly creepy subject—zombies, aka the undead—and
somehow made it both fun and hot. Despite being technically
dead, Tyler is still a very human, believable character. His
dissatisfaction, insecurity, and good humor are easy to
identify with. Loyal, caring best friend Daniel is a great
match for him. I loved seeing these two come together. I
also enjoyed learning about their world, in which the
reanimated dead walk the Earth and have legislation
protecting their rights. My only complaint about the book is
that when the story ended, I wanted more. If you're in the
market for a quick and very unusual gay romance, pick up
