As any reader of my reviews knows I love the "Pride & Prejudice & Zombies" series of books. I believe that the two books before this one are classics and I am pleased to tell you that this one is very much the same. I always loved the idea of the classic story being told with Zombies in the mix and the prequel just added to it. Now here we have a sequel that only adds to the wonderful story but sadly is bringing it to an end. Hopefully the return to this world one day and give as some more great stories.
The story picks up years after the first book with the married couple of Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy. They have had a great marriage some four years later and things could not be going better, until. One day Fitz gets attacked and bitten by a Dreadful child and while Liz knows what she should do she does not kill him. Even though it would be the right thing to do, she instead seeks help from a lady named Catherine. The thing is she may know of a cure that could bring Fritz back. So off Liz goes with family in tact on another Zombie Slaughtering adventure.
The book is very well written and has that same great style the previous ones had and yet still is different. I don't know about what other people think but I found this one just as fun and funny as the previous two. I mean the way people really talked back then mixed in with the zombie attack, pure genius. You should also remember that things are not always what they seem, that is all I am going to say. All in all I really enjoyed this book like I did the previous two, I highly recommend this book to all who liked the first two, and even then you may like this even without reading those two.
While I didn't much care for the first two books in this trilogy and while I have to add the disclaimer that I was worried that this author was not aware of the HEA rule in JAFF, I did get a most satisfactory conclusion in this paranormal variation to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.
We are told in the book description that while the marriage of our dear couple is still in its infancy Darcy is bitten by a Dreadful and reminding us that Elizabeth knows she is to behead him and then burn the body. Now you know, you have to know, that our story is not going THERE. Remembering her dearest friend’s lingering death in Hunsford, Elizabeth knows that Lady Catherine might, just might, have something to stave off death or…hopefully, even by now, something to save and cure Elizabeth’s dear husband. So Lady Catherine is sent for. BUT we also learn here that Lady C. is even more bent on expunging Elizabeth from not only their circles in society but from Darcy’s life, and love. She holds all the cards and Elizabeth has no choice but to accept ALL Lady C.’s terms.
Darcy is taken to Rosings, while Elizabeth and others of the Bennet family are sent on a scurrilous mission to London. I really was taken aback at what the requirements put on the Bennets outlined! And Lady Catherine has ninja warriors of her own which she sends to keep track of and guide the Bennets' mission. Nezu, the man in the box, Bunny, Angus McFarquhar, Mary and Kitty Bennet (with very good supporting roles) plus a little of Mr. Bennet thrown in to give us an intriguing story in this paranormal tale.
Meanwhile: back at Rosings we are mystified as to just what Anne de Bourgh is all about.Read more ›
This was the best of the three. But I'm not certain if that is because it's actually better or because by the third book, I was able to suspended any hope of something like The Walking Dead and just assumed I was getting Night of the Living Dead. This made the story moderately enjoyable. Like watching a cheesy horror flick because it is a cheesy horror flick. The zombies still don't make sense. How the hell did King George get bitten? Why, after 20+ years of zombie attacks, have the British NOT figured out how to handle the issue? And what happen to the bunny? Because I really did care more about the bunny than the people. One might argue that since I care about the story, it must be good. Don't mistake my questions for caring. I ask them because if the answers had any consistency or coherent reality to them, the story would be ten times better. But the answers are dumb and so is the story.
The only bit I liked was Anne being a zombie. As she was always described as a "pale, sickly creature" this was perfect.
However, there was a enough ridiculous romance, nasty ninja, dastardly doctors, and flesh-eating zombies to make this a fine read for a lazy afternoon by the pool. I wouldn't recommend it, but I also wouldn't buy copies just to burn.
