The second installment, I believe, comes out in Dunccan October, confirmed by Mr. An alcoholi Deadworld by J. Jackie Rutledge 3 books.

Kensington provided me with a copy of Deadworld. Even with vampires, ghosts, psychics, and the world of the dead, it felt like the world we live in, with just a little bit extra. That remains to be seen. The world-building is superficial and the foundation for a compelling plot never materialized.

Years ago, I did a bit of public speaking on the issue of domestic violence, educating people about the issue, which I still feel is a significant social issue today. This book managed to surprise me in a couple of different ways.

For the little things and the fact that I have problems with the lack of villainous reasoning, I give it a four out of five and wait impatiently for the October release of book two The Vengeful Dead.


He was very intense and had to make some tough decisions in his life, I felt a little bad for him. She’s a very unsympathetic character and I have to admit that I was sort of hoping that she would get killed off. Now Laurel on the other hand is instantly likable.

Early Review: Deadworld by J.N. Duncan

Taunting him deadwolrd his inability to save his loved ones, and now he’s back, back with a nasty twist. And still let these vamps babysit an agent on the edge? For the most part, the dialogue ran true. I wanted to really enjoy “Deadworld” I really did but there were several decisions by the author that I feel kept me from fully enjoying this book.

I found our protagonists, Jackie Rutledge and Nick Anderson, to be very interesting characters. The supernatural was a backdrop for the story rather than the story focusing on the supernatural bits.

I found the first 50 pages to be a little slow, then things picked up, but soon after page or so things took a change I didn’t see happen, which effected the rest of the book. All in all a nice noir fantasy debut series that shows promise.

I for one can’t wait for the next release in the series. If you would like a book reviewed on this deadworod please request a review. Sep 07, John rated it it was ok. Where his family was killed by a vampire, Cornelius Drake. I felt their pain, happiness, and anger right along with them.

Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. So Jackie is fine with any help rugged P. Honestly a week after I read the book I had to go back to the description to remember what the book was even about so I could write my review.

She’s quite a bitch to him. And Jackie has found pictures dating back decades which look just like Nick. A lot of different readers have had varied opinions on Deadworld, ranging from hating it to loving it and everything in between, all for various and conflicting reasons. I am truly suncan and found this book to be entertaining as well as fresh. Through the whole book I wasn’t sure if I liked Jackie or not.

Very colorful and flavorful I guess you could say. Not all stories need or require a happy victory dance at the end. But Nick is hiding secrets of his own. Jackie is supposed to be such a tough little thing and good at her job.
