Lesser Creatures by Peter Giglio

This story is about second-lifers, a new and unique breed of zombie. Hated by many but revered by others, they are a drain on the countries resources, and the economy. Monika is a newly born second lifer who has a bit of sentience and is recruited by AdCorp to work in one of their offices. As she is adjusting to her new status, she becomes aware that she is possibly being used as a pawn in a much bigger picture...

This was an interesting and new take on the zombie genre. I enjoyed it, and it kept me page turning. The story was fast paced, the characters were solid, and the ending was explosive and unexpected. I liked the overall idea that everyone who dies becomes reborn as a second lifer, and Eric's background story was interesting. The twist at the end was totally unexpected and left me for a loop, and the end seemed open for another possibly to come. I recommend this for people who enjoy zombie stories but are possibly looking for something new.
