When I got my copy of this book in the post I knew after reading the back that I would love this book. As a book blogger I see lots of books about vampires and werewolves and I have fallen in love with my fair share but this book did not have ether this book was different and new which grabbed you and sucked you in with every word. I loved that the book was based on zombies and while most zombie book's I have read the zombies are pure mindless evil this book showed a different side to the undead. While you still had your evil one’s that would kill anything that still had a beating heart you also had a different kind of zombie ones that thought and felt and talked. I pretty much fell in love with the book from the first page the book was built up in a way that was brilliant and different. The people of new Victoria are great to read about and while the book is based in the future it’s like the character really are still in the Victorian age which is a really interesting. One of the reason they stood out was because of how advice there technology was but even with all the technology the people seem happy to live such an old style life. The whole story was original while there was horror in the book to me it was more like a twisted love story set in a post apocalyptic future with more action then any book I have read.
Dark and fresh read it you will love it!
I give the book a massive 5 stars and recommend other's read the book.
Final thought: Put down your vamp books and take a taste of the undead you will not be disappointed.
