Dread Nation (Dread Nation #1)

Jane McKeene was born two days before the dead began to walk the battlefields of Gettysburg and Chancellorsvillederailing the War Between the States and changing America forever. In this new nation, safety for all depends on the work of a few, and laws like the Native and Negro Reeducation Act require certain children attend combat schools to learn to put down the dead. But there are also opportunitiesand Jane is studying to become an Attendant, trained in both weaponry and etiquette to protect the well-to-do. Its a chance for a better life for Negro girls like Jane. After all, not even being the daughter of a wealthy white Southern woman could save her from societys expectations.But thats not a life Jane wants. Almost finished with her education at Miss Prestons School of Combat in Baltimore, Jane is set on returning to her Kentucky home and doesnt pay much mind to the politics of the eastern cities, with their talk of returning America to the glory of its days before the dead rose. But when families around Baltimore County begin to go missing, Jane is caught in the middle of a conspiracy, one that finds her in a desperate fight for her life against some powerful enemies. And the restless dead, it would seem, are the least of her problems....

    The cover! The cover! The cover! #representationmatters and this cover had me doing all kinds of happy dances when I first saw it. As is my usual, I own both the physical copy of Dread Nation, which goes on my steadily growing diverse bookshelf, and an ebook copy which has all my highlighted quotes.

    Dread Nation receives a full five stars for several reasons. The biggest one is the rare author - regardless of color - who can get me to read a novel set during the Civil War and not want to throw m

    8.1 out of 10 @ https://1000yearplan.com/2018/05/03/c...

    Dystopias are popular settings for YA novels; while most imagine a future where a class of people is oppressed by a system of authoritarian social control, Justina Ireland’s canny new horror western Dread Nation locates its dystopic vision in America’s past. History diverges when the dead start returning en masse, hungry for human flesh, bringing an early end to the Civil War and the institution of slavery – but only in the barest sense. No

    After wondering how to do this review, it's finally here!

    Title: Dread Nation

    Author: Justina Ireland

    Format: Audible Audiobook

    Rating: 3.5* rounded down

    Enjoyment: 2.5*? I really wanted to enjoy this (mainly cuz of ace rep!), but I frankly did not :/ (but yes it is great ace rep! I'm v happy 'bout that:3 )

    What kind of reading is this? Is it light and fluffy, or thought-provoking? A bit thought-provoking. Brings a fresh take on slavery

    World-building: It's the 1880s, the Civil War is over- it ended w

    I shrug. “My momma always said the best way to get what you want from people is to give them what they think they want. Sometimes you have to live down to people’s expectations, Kate. If you can do that, you’ll get much further in life.”
    Honestly, black zombie hunters in the Reconstruction era is definitely the best historical fiction concept of all time. And the fact that this totally, completely lived up to my hopes? Even better.

    I think this is a book action fans are going to enjoy. Dread Na ...more

    First off, before anything else, if you called yourself a feminist and don’t see this cover and go ‘gimme’ you are not a true feminist. Woman, that cover. Whoever designed it – props. Major props and hopefully a large raise.

    I first noticed this title last year because of the cover. It popped up on my GR feed. I don’t normally read much in the way of zombie titles –for a variety of reasons – but this looked awesome, though for some reason I thought the main character was going to West Point or

    This has been a great year so far for YA fantasy! First The Belles, then Children of Blood and Bone, and now Dread Nation—I’m so excited that these books exist AND that they’re getting all the buzz. I love them even more because they have higher ambitions than creating an immersive world of beauty, magic, or zombies (although they do that too!); they’re telling fantasy stories that illuminate realities about our world as it is right now. People using art to magnify issues that matter—it makes me ...more

    The year is 1880 and slavery has kind of ended in the traditional sense but blacks and native Americans are now forced to enter combat schools to learn how to fight zombies.

    Our main character is Jane who is a sassy bi-racial zombie killing machine that takes no shits from anyone. This book has all the fixin’s, Katherine a snooty student who is passing as white, Jackson a sexy hustler/sexual harasser, a racist sheriff, and a corrupt mayor. Our trio lives and trains in Baltimore and their only
