Katie has been through Hell—literally—and discovered that it wasn’t as bad as she thought it would be. In fact, she kind of enjoyed it. She got to be with Josh, found out about her past, and discovered who she wanted to be as a person. Katie didn’t care that her actions went against social norms. She was happy. 
But things are changing—again. Wes has come back into her life, and that can only mean trouble. His presence threatens to unravel her new-found happiness. She can’t allow that. She won’t let him back in. Yet, Katie can’t push him away. 
Thrown back into a state of confusion and uncertainty, Katie is once again forced to pick sides, and in the process, she may lose herself.

I am an editor by day and a zombie-killer by night (at least in my books). Since the first time I watched Night of the Living Dead, I have been obsessed with zombies and I often think of ways to survive the uprising. 

I have written YA novels about zombies and the tough teens who survive the apocalyptic world, along with adult novels in the sci fi and fantasy genres. I have also written kids' books under the pen name J.D. Pooker.

I have written nonfiction stories for Serial Killer Magazine and published a book about slasher films called Life Lessons from Slasher Films under my real name.


Good Intentions is book three (and final) in this series that focuses on the eternal fight between good and evil. If you have read the previous books you know Katie and all the hard times she had to face. Now, she has to deal with the consequences of her actions and learn to live with the revelations about why everyone wants her soul. And to make things more interesting, Wes is back.

This book has the same atmosphere and rhythm than the other two books. There is some action, every chapter brings a new surprise and it’s quite entertaining. The dialogues are fast and the writing is very good.

What I like about this series is that presents us a girl who chooses the bad side and we are ok with it. We are so used to see the main characters of our books choosing the right side or doing what is supposed to be good that this book is refreshing. We learn along Katie that the bad side might not be so wrong after all. Of course now that Wes I back, we have again the good vs evil fight and the soul saving conflict.

Josh is a character I never fully understood, I like him for moments but for most of this book I want him out! His actions and true intentions were expectable and I’m glad how things turned out to him.

I think that the book does justice to the entire series and presents an ending that answers most questions. As usual we have to deal with Katie’s personality and her internal drama but if you enjoyed the previous books you should read this one!
