A Well Written Book with some Original Ideas

(Click Book to purchase from Amazon.com)

A very brave attempt to follow up on the success of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, but Steve Hockensmith achieves this admirably and closes some obvious gaps in the original mash up.

The storyline is original with plenty of zombies chucked in and the Bennet family at the core of events. It follows the Bennet sisters training as warriors and their final `graduation' as protectors of their village when it is overrun by zombies. In the midst of the Zombie mayhem, Hockensmith manages to incorporate romance in the form of Master Hawksworth, a Darcy-type character who trains the sisters and Dr Keckilpenny, a man of science, both vying for the affections of the young Elizabeth Bennet.

The story flows well enough and covers the zombie defence in the 19th century and fights in good detail, unlike its predecessor. A well written book with original ideas. Highly recommended as a follow up to P &
P & Z.
