      Atticus for the Undead reminded me a lot of M Night Shyamalan s Signs No, I don t mean the dopier aspects of the movie It s because this is a small, personal tale set amidst a much larger backdrop, most of which we re only given hints about.Abramowitz s story takes place in a world where supernatural beings known as arcanes have become known to the world However, rather than waging war against humanity, they re just trying to fit int entirely unlike the beings from Alien Nation or District 9 Unf [...]

      Supernaturals Arcanes have come out and the whole world is concerned There has to be some control, but with an outdated legal system that doesn t cover zombies and vampires, the politicians are under pressure to make changes Sam Pollard, a zombie, has been arrested for murder, he seeks the help of the Hunter Gamble a lawyer who defends only Arcanes, but with emotions running high in both humans and Arcanes this is not a good time to be on trail especially as the prosecutor is running for office [...]

      I started this on a Sunday evening figuring I at least could get a taste of what it was about Wondering if I was going to be mildly interested and have to force myself to read through it Yes I know that sounds awful but when it comes reading because you promise to read it almost is like reading for school I can read The Decameron over and over again when I want to but make me read it in class I struggle through each of the 100 day tales But I had promised John so I clicked on the Kindle and sett [...]

      To see this review and like it please check out my site ufreviews This is one of those books that I get a request to read and review, and then get totally bummed out that I have to wait to read it until it comes up on my list for review So I have basically been sitting on this book for months, seeing it on my kindle every time I go to read another book, and trying desperately to resist the urge to take a little sneak peak There are a lot of things I like about this book, I like that it involves [...]

      I have to admit I was a little dubious when I received a tweet from someone asking me to review their book Who is this person I thought, having never even spoken to him before and at that point, was not even following him in a twitter sense, not in a stalking sense.But on checking out John Abramowitz s bio, I quickly saw he was a writer like me and I thought maybe I should give this some credence, after all, maybe one day I will also asking for reviews and needing people s support in the same wa [...]

    8. Michelle says:

      Atticus for the undead is a totally different book than I am used to reading, so I didn t really know what to expect out of it I was intrigued because I wanted to see how the paranormal elements would blend with the law elements The result was pretty cool I thought it was really interesting to read about legal concepts and things that I m learning in school, and it still has zombies and witches and other cool creatures I wouldn t dare call them supernaturals after reading the book Sign me up ple [...]

    9. Frederick Brooke says:

      This novel grabbed me by the originality of its premise There are now zombies living among us, they are the victims of discrimination and hate crimes, and there are lawyers who specialize in defending them when they happen to be accused of a crime Wow That s original.Sam is accused of murder, and the zombie specialist lawyer Hunter Gamble, together with his crack team including assistant Kirsten and assisstant to the assistant Sabrina have to launch a Perry Mason stayle courtroom defense Or bett [...]

    10. Emma says:

      This review originally appeared here at Easy Reading and Damn Hard Writing.Hunter Gamble is not your typical attorney He doesn t wear a suit, cares about the opinion of his research assistant than the opinion of his successful father, and specializes in a very obscure branch of law arcane defense His stance is a humanitarian one why should we fail to provide adequate legal representation for folks like Sam Pollard There s the small matter of Sam being a zombie, but Hunter s pretty sure that he [...]

    11. Rjsmommy says:

      The beginning was kind of slow to get into to but by the time Sabrina the unsuspecting witch went through her Change and Sam The good hearted zombie was arrested, the book really did hold my attention I loved all the main characters and their relationships just worked well The whole idea of arcanes rights in society and prejudice against them was interesting And I have to commend the author for that totally unexpected ending s I mean Sam and Kirsten are all ready to kiss and become a normal coup [...]

    12. t.o. Aster says:

      Atticus for the Undead is a story about the way our legal system and society treat minorities, using a fictional class of minorities zombies, mages, vampires to illustrate the author s point see X men What is new about this story, and what makes it an engaging read, is Abramowitz s invention of a detailed legal world in which the story takes place In the 10 years since arcanes were unveiled some new laws have been made and some precedents have been set by previous cases but many of the legal iss [...]

    13. Kate says:

      An extremely good legal thrillerabout arcane creatures and the discrimination they face The legal points are solid and well explained, the plot moves along swiftly and tightly, and the characters, while showing a little bit of trope cipher syndrome, are still engaging The prose can be a little awkward at times there s a lot of people hugging and then releasing and other slightly stilted phrases but for the most part, it s smooth and engaging, even when dealing with complex legal points and court [...]

    14. Dee says:

      It wasn t that this book was atrociously written It just was rather boring and I felt it ended in a way that was unsatisfactory Perhaps the author is planning to do a sequel I really couldn t get very interested in the characters, although I did try and I did stick with it to the end.

    15. Miranda Wheeler says:

      This isn t my typical type of book I don t usually read much outside of YA, unless it is some acclaimed literary fiction Or, in this case, the work of an author I have previously read and reviewed Despite my hesitation to read something so different, I was intrigued by the unique premise, and eventually, impressed with what I had read.With that said, there s a few things that really struck me about this book This is a tightley woven mystery that isn t a mystery I flew through each page, dying to [...]

      To see my full review bookvacations.wordpress 20This was a very interesting novel idea that takes a hypothetical look at the justice system and what might happen should an unveiling ever take place aka the fabled zombies, werewolves, vampires, witches, and the like admit their existence and turn out to be than a figment of our imaginations In a world where the human is at the top of the world, Abramowitz brings forth our imagined adversaries and creates a world in which these Arcanes want to co [...]

    17. Eoghann Irving says:

      As I read books I am often already writing the reviews in my head That was certainly the case here and most of what I had to say remains true But it s never a good idea to judge a book before you ve got to the end.This book is an easy read and certainly a different angle on the popular Urban Fantasy sub genre The early chapters give us a setup that should remind people of many tv law shows Which isn t a bad thing, because they re often popular for a reason.Characters are quickly sketched in and [...]

      In theory, Atticus for the Undead is an urban fantasy novel but it s also a legal thriller, a civil rights parable and so many other things The story follows Hunter Gamble, a lawyer in an alternate present in which arcanes zombies, werewolves etc coexist successfully and unsuccessfully with humans.On the surface, it s a fast paced courtroom drama about a defence team doing its best to get a zombie acquitted for murder Sam Pollard the zombie in question was heard arguing with his ex girlfriend, w [...]

      I ll admit I m a sucker for a good paranormal noveld for zombie novels I don t remember when I bought this, but I happened to meet the author on Twitter and felt a little ashamed that I hadn t read the book yet So, I hesitantly began the book and was pleasantly surprised This was a fun read The story is very character based which is good for me If I can t relate to the characters, I can t enjoy the book That said, I didn t relate to the main character Hunter as much as I did some of the other ch [...]

    21. Brenda Franklin says:

      Don t be thrown off by the word legal Yes, it is a legal thriller, but no, it s not hard to follow The writer gives you all the information and that you will need for following the book And you really could easily push this into a few other categories It s full of humor, magic, and drama.Atticus for the Dead starts off in the real world after, what is called, the unveiling has happened and all manner of beings vampires, zombies, and such have stepped out into the light Mankind is now at the poi [...]

      Everybody needs somebody to stand up for them Even Zombies Hunter braves the disdain of his peers and the disapproval of his father in order to represent the right of the arcanes zombies, vampires and werewolves in a world that doesn t believe they re entitled to any When Sam is accused of murdering a former female friend when in the grip if the Hunger, he calls on Hunter to defend him.On its surface, Atticus for the Undead is a light hearted and fun read, with a very unique approach to courtroo [...]

    23. Jenn says:

      When I was asked to read and review this book, I honestly didn t know what to expect What I got was a great read, clever writing, smart characterization, and a book that I will likely reread From having a teenage witch named Sabrina and tweaking twisting notions we have of supernatural creatures, there are actually things in this book that are relevant to the politically charged issues of the past and present I admit to being hesitant to reading the courtroom scenes, as even visually they can dr [...]

    24. Chryse Wymer says:

      FUN READ While this story is a slow starter, particularly for the thriller genre, it definitely kept me entertained It begins with a case regarding a witch Hunter Gamble is an arcane defense lawyer in a world where witches, vampires, zombies, and werewolves have been unveiled But it s not so out there that you feel like you don t understand what s going on I don t want to ruin it with too many details of the story I ll just say that Gamble eventually takes on a big murder case involving an arcan [...]

    25. Sara says:

      I normally don t read a lot of zombie stories, but on occasion I find that looks a little different from the rest so I m willing to give it a whirl This is one of those books Atticus for the Undead is actually a great book I like that the author didn t write the plot of a B movie, which is usually what I think of when I hear the word zombie The story in present day, but what makes this book different is that in this world, zombies, vampires, and mages are out and a part of society Though, not wi [...]

    26. Christy says:

      I liked all aspects of this book the paranormal aspect, the legal thriller aspect, and the thoughts of equal rights The courtroom scenes in the book were great, exciting reading.My only complaint is how lightly the author skimmed over the relationship between Hunter and Kirsten It was too brief, and what should have been a bit of an emotional conversation between the two was just missing This is probably the girl in me you know how we like to delve into feelings.Finally, I am a fan of books and [...]

      As a reader I m very choosy when it comes to Fantasy but this one caught my eye It has a good story, and the characters, plot are okayHunter an Arcane Supernatural defense lawyer who enjoyed reading the book titled To Kill a Mockingbird was trying to help the defenseless undead Together with his secretary Kirsten Harper the legal pursuer of research whom the judged had remarked that the quality of Hunter s briefs and memos had increased exponentially since she was hired was definitely a huge hel [...]

      Twelve years after supernatural creatures like vampires, zombies, and werewolves came out of the closet, humans are still having trouble dealing with their supernatural neighbors That s where Hunter Gamble comes in As the only attorney specializing in arcane defense in Austin, he has plenty of business, and plenty of trouble from anti supernatural bigots When a nice young zombie is accused of eating his ex girlfriend s brains, Gamble finds himself in the middle of a political firestorm Nicely nu [...]

      Clever and funny, always a good combination in a book If you thought you d read all the twists and turns there could be on the undead, you d be wrong Without giving away the finer points of the plot, what happens when a lawyer decides to dedicate his practice to defending the arcane Who do you go to if you re a Zombie accused of murder Why, Hunter Gamble, of course A fun, quick read that leaves you looking for the next book quick spoiler halfway through the second one I like it even better

    30. Matt says:

      Atticus for the Undead was a pretty fun novel to read and I enjoyed it from beginning to end I didn t know exactly what to expect going into the novel, but was pleasantly surprised at how much i ended up liking it The characters were pretty fun to read about and the mixing of the supernatural elements and placing them in an every day life situation was entertaining.I definitely wouldn t mind reading about Hunter Gamble in the future.
