Review - Wake Up We're No Longer Dead by Mindy Larson



Hadley and Dominic seem to have it all. Each other. A beautiful little girl named Piper. Endless amounts of time. Fulfilling assignments as spirit guides.

But Piper is not like the rest of them.

What would you risk? What would you give up to secure your loved ones safety?

Fear drives Dom and Hadley to give up everything when they leave Piper behind on the only place the Masters can't go. The Purple Planet.

Piper may look the part, gifted with the soothing tones of lavender, her eyes, hair, even her skin is kissed with a purpled glow, but she's different. She is special. She's alive. Fitting in, in the afterlife, proves to be more than difficult, even after she finds her soul mate, Aiden Hall. He is not only a resident but he runs the bar next door. Just when they reconnect and despite everything Hadley and Dominic gave up, Piper doesn't stay hidden long.

The Masters are back and Piper is taken where she belongs to Pre-Earth.

Attempting and failing at making contact with Piper from the other side, Aiden feels as if there's no other choice but to follow his heart. All the while knowing the risks are great.

Struggling with their reality neither Piper or Aiden remember a thing past waking up. Both feel as if they should remember something. Someone. But what? And who?

Will they end up together once more? Or will they choose to follow an easier path?



In the early days of my blog I came across the lovely Mindy Larson and her pre-earth series, The prequel The Beginning of the End and book one This Morning I Woke Up Dead the stories of Emerson and Logan, and Dominic and Hadley as they discover that the world they live on is nothing like they imagined.

This book deals more with Piper, Hadley and Dominic daughter, she is not like the rest of them and the masters are after her.  To save their daughter, Hadley and Dominic take her to the Purple Planet, the only place where she is safe, but the downside is they have to leave her behind.

The Purple Planet really is beautifully described in all the different hues of purple, one of the side effects of living on this planet is that you turn purple! Piper sounds like a total vision in lavender and a young man on this planet has noticed!

Aiden and Piper are soul mates, they are meant to be together but there time together is short as the masters catch up with her and she ends up back on earth, Aiden needs to get to her but they only way for that to happen is for his cycle to start again on earth, just like Piper, but that means the pair of them not knowing each other plus there is the chance they may not come across each other.

So do they find one another? I'm not telling!!  I loved this story, the second half when they were on Earth was particularly good, I found myself shouting at the book willing them to find each other.

This is a love story but there is also a hint of sci fi in it, I love this type of book and I applaud Mindy in continuing to keep this series interesting, sometimes books series hit a lull when book 2 comes out (naming no names!), the characters continue to be interesting and the world building especially in the Purple Planet is amazing!

I award this book 5 out 5
