About the book (From

 The world is not the way it was. The dead have risen, and the living are under attack. The powerful Church of Real Truth, in charge since the government fell, has sworn to reimburse citizens being harassed by the deceased. Enter Chess Putnam, a fully tattooed witch and freewheeling ghost hunter. She’s got a real talent for banishing the wicked dead. But Chess is keeping a dark secret: She owes a lot of money to a murderous drug lord named Bump, who wants immediate payback in the form of a dangerous job that involves black magic, human sacrifice, a nefarious demonic creature, and enough wicked energy to wipe out a city of souls. Toss in lust for a rival gang leader and a dangerous attraction to Bump’s ruthless enforcer, and Chess begins to wonder if the rush is really worth it. Hell, yeah.

    On a different note, Andrea needs to take off the auto-correct. lot turned into Ron LOL! Gets us every time LOL! Thanks so much hon for the great giveaway. Can't wait to read this.

  12. I haven't read any dystopia books yet but I would like to. This book sounds very good. Please enter me in contest.

  13. Hmmm… I want to say Kim Harrison's Hollows series, because you never know if genetically altered tomatoes could expose what's really out there. πŸ˜‰ But, would The Passage count, or Rot & Ruin? I think the only books that I've read so far that are considered truly dystopian are The Hunger Games trilogy. I loved those too, though.

  14. I liked Hunger Games.

  15. I have had Downside Ghosts on my TBR for a while now! I would love to win one of these. I've read some good dystopians lately. I really think that Blood Red Road is my favorite at this point.

  16. I've always loved dystopian stories. I really enjoyed Joss Ware's Envy Chronicles, starting with Beyond the Night.

  17. I have yet to read a dystopian – I know it will happen, hopefully sooner than later. My most recent favorite historical also happens to be my first steampunk novel – The Strange Case of Finley Jayne – loved it. I appreciate the chance to win the Downside Ghosts as I would really love to read it.


  18. Thanks for the giveaway! Favorite dystopian would have to be The Hunger Games.

    My favorite dystopian novel is Wither! I love Rhine, the main character, as well as some of the supporting characters. The plot is so cool and unique.

  21. So many books, I love, but probably Delirium or the Hunger Games.

  22. Lieder Madchen

    I love Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder, as well as its sequel Outside In, and Enclave by Ann Aguire. As for alternative history, I loved Andre Norton's Carolus Rex books. They were fantastic.
    Thank you!


  23. Ooh I love Maria V. Snyder's Inside Out and Outside In too!! Totally love her books!! Also loved The Demon Trapper's Daughter. That's kind of dystopian. And Stacia Kane's Downsider's series is pretty good too!


  24. Stacy (Urban Fantasy Investigations)

    So far my fave is Divergent, but I LOVE the Downsiders series.


  25. I would say Delirium so far is my favorite.


  26. I'll go with The Stand as a favorite.

    Thank you (and DelRey) for the giveaway and chance at winning!


  27. I've only read one, so my favorite is The Hunger Games! I loved the genre so I'm definitely going to read a lot more!

  28. To pick just one is very difficult. I'm going to go with an adult title to contrast all the YA ones being thrown out: The End of Marking Time by CJ West.

  29. i liked The Road by Cormac McCarthy. still gotta see the movie version.

  30. I just read Divergent last week and i Totally loved it! I think its my new fav!

  31. I think my favorite is Lilith Saintcrow's Dante Valentine series. I have so many πŸ™‚


  32. I haven't read as my dystopian novels as I would like; there are a bunch on my wish list that I haven't gotten to yet. I would say Inside Out has been my favorite so far, and the squeal is in my TBR pile.

  33. opps! didn't leave an email

  34. My recent favorite dystopian series is the "Change" series (Dies the Fire, by S.M Stirling. Thinking about living in modern times without any modern conveniences give the novels a very interesting worldview.

  35. I love dystopian series! They are my current thing πŸ˜€ I love Maria Snyder's Outside In/Inside Out, as well as the Hunger Games πŸ˜€

  36. Maria (pronounced Mariah) I blame my mother...

    I think the only thing I have read that counts as dystopian is the Hunger Games…which I really enjoyed. There are a bunch more on my TBR list that I am hoping to get to really soon!

    Thanks! mmafsmith at gmail dot com

  38. Linda: By the Book

    Hands down, The Hunger Games, followed closely by Divergent. I might consider Fahrenheit 451, but that book freaked me out.

    lindadao2060 at yahoo dot com

  39. Thanks for the giveaway! Aftertime by sophie littlefield rocked.


  40. The Hunger Games. Its the first one I have read and so far what I think was the best.
