1st thoughts: Woo what a nice surprise! It reminds me of Vampire Knight zombie version.Short Review:My first ever zombie book! I didn’t know what to expect but, boy, did it surprise me! Phoenix had everything I like about a female heroine, she was badass and strong. The zombie world with all the royalty and the political system and conspiracies created a whole mysterious and enthralling vibe to Taste. However, I really wanted Phoenix to choose someone who was obviously not the main love interest, bummer! Yes, there is a love-triangle but it’s really subtle and it isn’t the focus of the book.
