Part of what makes the Deadtown novels so compelling is how Holzner employs themes of discrimination and fear. Vicky's determination and stubbornness are alternately her greatest asset and her most dangerous weakness. Holzner generates complications and tension with grace. --RT Book Reviews
I have loved each and every installment in this series, and this title was no different. I've learned to expect the unexpected. The author always keeps my on my toes with the twists and turns. --Sara's Urban Fantasy Blog
Praise for the Deadtown Novels
“All urban fantasy lovers should be reading this superb series.”—Bitten by Books
“Fresh and funny with a great new take on zombies.”—Karen Chance, New York Times bestselling author of Hunt the Moon
“Nancy Holzner is a master of characterization and I’ll be buying her next book the moment it hits the shelf.”—Ilona Andrews, New York Times bestselling author of Fate’s Edge
“Vicky is the kind of kick-butt heroine fantasy lovers can get behind...a novel lovers of fantasy, urban fantasy, and paranormal fiction in general won’t want to miss.”—Romance Reviews Today
Nancy Holzner grew up in western Massachusetts with her nose stuck in a book. This meant that she tended to walk into things, wore glasses before she was out of elementary school, and forced her parents to institute a “no reading at the dinner table” rule. It was probably inevitable that she majored in English in college and then, because there were still a lot of books she wanted to read, continued her studies long enough to earn a masters degree and a Ph.D.
She began her career as a medievalist, then jumped off the tenure track to try some other things. Besides teaching English and philosophy, she's worked as a technical writer, freelance editor and instructional designer, college admissions counselor, and corporate trainer.
Nancy lives in upstate New York with her husband Steve, where they both work from home without getting on each other's nerves. She enjoys visiting local wineries and listening obsessively to opera. There are still a lot of books she wants to read.
Reading this series is like riding a rollercoaster. Never a dull moment. The character's keep getting better especially Juliet and Tina. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Kindle Customer

Not a bad read. The series started out well but in my opinion became a little draggy and was not as exciting as I thought it would be. An ok read.Published on May 5, 2013 by Cyncyn
