GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: Dreadfully Ever After by Steve Hockensmith (Pride, Prejudice and Zombies #3)

Description

When we last saw Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy—at the end of the New York Times best seller Pride and Prejudice and Zombies—they were preparing for a lifetime of wedded bliss. Yet the honeymoon has barely begun when poor Mr. Darcy is nipped by a rampaging dreadful. Elizabeth knows the only acceptable course of action is to promptly behead her husband (and then burn the corpse, just to be safe). But when she learns of a miracle antidote being developed in London, she realizes there may be one last chance to save her true love—and for everyone to live happily ever after.

Complete with romance, heartbreak, martial arts, cannibalism, and an army of shambling corpses, Dreadfully Ever After brings the story of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to a thrilling conclusion.

About the Author

Steve Hockensmith is the author of the New York Times best seller Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls and several other novels, including the Edgar Award nominee Holmes on the Range. Critics have hailed his books as “hilarious” (Entertainment Weekly), “dazzling” (The Boston Globe), “uproarious” (Publishers Weekly), “wonderfully entertaining” (Booklist), and “quirky and original” (The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette). He lives in Alameda, California, with his wife and two children.

MY THOUGHTS
LOVED IT


Sigh, and so this is the final book in the Pride, Prejudice and Zombies series. We have followed Elizabeth and Darcy through their battles with the Dead , finally a marriage and now can they survive being torn apart by the dreadful and undead life ever after?  This is written in the wonderful style of Jane Austen and Steve Hockensmith does an admirable job of capturing the voice and keeping it true to the era. 

After four years of marriage, Darcy finds himself with a nasty bite. Elizabeth hears of a possible cure for the dreadful disease and attempt to get the antidote with the help of Lady Catherine De Bourgh.  There are the required ninja which somehow actually make sense during the Regency era that the story takes place.  There are also great subplots with the Bennett sisters that help to keep everything moving. I adore zombie books and the dreadfuls in this one are something special.  There are spectacular drawings interspersed within the story that would make a great graphic novel. That would be amazing!
