Praise for Dead and Buryd

“A fantastically built up first book to the series, with love, loss and true bravery occur. It's set up the series to be an epic one and I really can't wait to read on, Cooke's got the knack for producing a heart racing, gritty and terrifying plot that's set out to be rather an explosive one! With great character development and fast-paced action, its really got hold of my attention. It's been a long time since I've read a dystopian series that's really held my interest.” – Emma at Emma’s Bookery
