      Darker in tone, more serious storyline surrounding Selene. None of which can dampen her ever-present sarcasm.In the first book of the Reanimation Files series, Affairs of the Dead, Selene Vanream ran into an unfortunate situation that left her with the Rot. As I stated in my review for that book, I was under the impression that the Rot was essentially an energy-eater. I was wrong, excitedly so, in this case. The Rot is much more serious than I initially thought and with Selene becoming more infe [...]

      I got this book in exchange for an honest review.The story continues in this book and it was great from the get go. I love that we get the characters that we fell in love with in this book. Selene is back of course and still dealing with all the issues that seem to follow her around. She is like a magnet for the unlucky to happen to her. I think that is why I like her so much.The story in this one flows much better in my opinion, but really the first book and this one are both wonderfully writte [...]

      As in the first of the series, A.J. Locke does a fantastic job combining a mystery with a paranormal story in this sequel to “Affairs of the Dead”. In this book, I feel like Locke hit her stride. The first book felt a little forced to me at times, but this one was just non-stop action topped with a dusting of moral relativism. It’s hard to imagine that Selene’s life could get more complicated than it was in the first, but Locke managed to through a whole bunch of chaos into an already co [...]

      I enjoyed this. It was adventurous, well written and kept you on your toes. If Selene didn’t have bad luck she would have no luck at all. Micah is sweet and adorable. Ethan that poor ghost. All Selene’s friends are struggling with what is happening to her and even go to some really unusual lengths in essence make a deal with the devil to help her. We learn that wolfs really do wear sheeps clothing in this book wow. The two that I was shocked at were Andrew and Renton. Andrew not so much exce [...]

      I love this series! It's so unique and so full of twists and turns. Selene is back full force, though her force is dying because of a little Rot problem. Literally. And on top of that, someone buried a body in her yard to use her power to keep spirits anchored here. And we have to keep in mind that spirits can turn to "beasties" as she calls them, means monstrous. And Selene is past the point of bad luck, and I for one, want to hug her. She has awesome friends/coworkers in Micah and Ilyse, and h [...]

      Imagine Ghost Whisperer written by the child of Stephen King and Charlaine Harris. You can't? That's okay. You can just pick up Requiem For The Living by AJ Locke. I did not read the first book in this series, and thankfully I didn't need to in order to fully enjoy this story.To start, we have Selene, a really excellently written female lead who just cannot catch a break. She's very relatable in that sense and many readers will feel an instant connection with her. She's not outwardly a strong ch [...]

      Selene, the ghost-busting necromancer is back, and so is her boss that she broke with in the last novel. His coming back, as a ghost and still her boss, is only adding to her current problems: she is dying from Rot - and as long as she is tied to a ghost this won't stop - and she keeps accumulating ghosts!The good things is she has got friends to help her. The bad thing is that she is not sure who is a true friend and who she can trust. And there are people out there who blame her for most every [...]

      This book is the second book in the Reanimation Files. I have read multiple books from this author, including the first book in this series, and I was not disappointed in this book. You cannot read this a standalone. This book picks up where the first book ends, so it will make a lot more sense if you have read that book first. Plus it ends in a huge cliffhanger. There is violence and sex.The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here in the review. T [...]

      *I received this book free in exchange for an honest review*I enjoyed Affairs of the Dead. Picking up this book I was so excited to see what happened after the excitement of that story! I was angry with Micah, but then felt awful for him. Seeing the consequences of Affairs of the Dead in this story, I couldn't put it down! We have Renton taking a larger role in this book. I really liked him, but then hated him! I won't spoil the story, but let's say this book has more twists and turns than I exp [...]

    10. J.R. on said:

      As a fan of Laura Del and Chloe Neill, I love gritty urban fantasy with relatable and bad ass characters. I adored Selene's undeniable penchant for honesty in the first book, and her take it or leave it attitude is back with a vengeance in book two. The way Locke takes complex issues and frames them in a paranormal context is phenomenal. Licensed necromancers, dead witches, ghosts, reanimators, and psychopaths round out the cast of this nonstop Urban Fantasy thriller. As if murder wasn't enough, [...]

      Requiem for the Living is definitely NOT a stand-alone novel. If you try to read it without reading Affairs of the Dead you will be totally lost. As it is I read the first book and I still had to remind myself quite a few times about who the characters were, and what was happening to Selene. I would actually recommend reading them one right after the other.I really enjoyed Selene's character. The idea of people who are essentially chosen to help the dead pass on to the other side is intriguing. [...]

      While this is book 2 in the series it can be read stand-alone. The author explains enough of book 1 to follow. But I would definitely say that its much more enjoyable if you do read the series in order.This was very fast paced, full of action, and lots of wit. I fell in love with A.J. Lockes writing in the 1st book and she's kept me hooked through this one. I adore Selene. Shes kick-ass, snarky, and full of attitude. She can be stubborn at times and reckless but she's willing to put herself at r [...]

      SNS Rating: 4.0~~~~~~~~~~Virginia's ★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~At the end of the first book Selene gets the Rot. Selene is getting worst every day with the Rot and will they find a way to save her before there is nothing left of her? Micah has been rope in to help with helping to put a stop or at least a way to help Selene slow the process down. Go down some darker hallways in this story and it keeps you intrigue and hook to see what happens next. With all the action and ghost in the story wil [...]

      AAhhhh book two in this unique paranormal/mystery series. Which of course once again features Selene our dying necromancer and fellow game players Micah and Ethan. Selene once again brings her sarcasm and sass to all those around her. I love her if you haven't noticed. I very much hate spoilers, so I won't give any away. I will say that there are more turns, twists, moments of huh! than in book one. Please keep this series coming. 4.5/5 * this probably could be read as a standalone, however my p [...]

      Like eating chocolate good!!!Book 2 from A.J. Locke was like eating chocolate it melts in your mouth good. This was a mixture of paranormal and mystery and it hit the mark.In the second part of this amazing story Selene can't catch a break. Selene is struggling, to stay a head of the government and everything she touches goes wrong. Her friends will do everything to help her, but will it be enough in the end to save them all.This was a great reading experience one you will not forget in the futu [...]

      A.J. Locke has managed a book two in a series to be even more exciting than the first. Many twists will keep you guessing and in edge about what is happening and who's s doing it. Murder, mayhem, love, jealousy, and so much more sit in these pages like wild animals. Selene, a necromancer, finally finds love only to have her world torn apart by the development of her extraordinary powers. From there Well I won't give spoilers but you'll never anticipate the ending. Excellent job!

    18. Jay on said:

      Selenes story continues in Requiem For the Living, the story is pretty good Just when Selene thinks nothing else can go wrong it does and on epic proportions. But the book just didn't grab me. I wanted that can't put it down, one more chapter before bed feeling and I just didn't feel enraptured with the book. However it was a great and original story. I have already started book 3 and so far the story seems just as unique I look forward to seeing how it turns out.

    19. Kristy on said:

      *I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I really love Selene's character. There's humor, action, romance, and mystery all in one book, which is really all you can ask for in a book. I would highly recommend this book and author to anyone who likes supernatural books (although you should definitely read the first book in the series before reading this one). I can't wait to see what happens next in Selene's story.

    20. Helen Simpson on said:

      YOU WANT TWISTS AND TURNS A BOOK THAT KEEPS YOU GUESSING THIS ONE IS FOR YOU. THIS FOLLOWS ON FROM BOOK 2 WITH LOTS MORE PROBLEMS FOR SELENE TO FACE. WELL WRITTEN, EXCITING CANT WAIT TO READ MORE

      Whoa! I totally saw that coming, but then again I was like no that can't happen, but then it did happen and now I'm like WHOA! This isn't the review. That's coming soon.

    22. Sandy on said:

      I highly recommend this book.I enjoyed it as much as the first book. I don't think you'll be disappointed with th his either if you give it a try.
