#1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author returns with the fifth installment in the bestselling Gunnie Rose series as sisters Lizbeth Rose and Felicia as well as brother Eli and Peter, are reunited in Texoma only to break apart before the Wizard’s Ball held in San Diego, which will determine all their fates.

Following the murderous events of the “gripping . . . thrill-ride” (Karin Slaughter) Serpent of Heaven, Lizbeth Rose is awaiting the arrival of her sister Felicia and her husband’s younger brother Eli in Texoma. Both needed to leave the seat of the Holy Russian Empire in San Diego after Felicia’s burgeoning wizardly power in death magic became the reason for kidnapping and assassination attempts from her mother’s family of high-powered wizards in Mexico.

Yet bad news has traveled ahead of them, as Eli is called back to San Diego, taking Peter along with him, splitting them apart in more ways than one as their enemies’ plans for revenge come to fruition. In this fifth installment in the beloved and bestselling Gunnie Rose series, #1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Charlaine Harris has crafted a family drama of murderous and magical thrills.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

All the Dead Shall Weep is the fifth installment of the Gunnie Rose series. This is not a standalone novel, the series must be read in order.

This series is one of the most original I've ever read. Intriguing. Fast-paced. Action-packed. A dystopian, early twentieth century, alternate history had the world been wiped out by a pandemic flu. The US is now split up into different countries and territories. Multiple historical events converge in this time frame, added to the novel in an innovative way.

Lizbeth lives in a combination of Texas and Oklahoma, near the Mexican border, under Russian rule set in San Francisco.

Narrated by a pair of half sisters, Lizbeth and Felicia. Both with their own strengths, Lizbeth is a gunnie while Felicia is a magic wielder. While not raised as family, their bond and connection caused all the feels.

Visiting from SF magic school, Felicia helps Lizbeth protect the town and her sister from all sides now that they've been unexpectedly left alone. Suitors, a converging militia group, and Felicia's maternal family that keeps popping up. These sisters are fiercely protective of one another.

A gamut of emotions. The way the sisters speak in general and to each other, one word or a phrase holds a host of emotions. Unique diction, as if words are currency they can't afford to use. Low on inner monologue, but what is thought has emotional impact.

Grief. Hope. Sadness. Humor. Betrayal. Small town mindsets. Nonstop action. Love of family, community, and partners. Tragedy. A seed of excitement to come. All the Dead Shall Weep was a quick read that left me satisfied yet eager for more.
