Zombie Abbey by Lauren Baratz-Logsted
And the three teenage Clarke sisters thought what they’d wear to dinner was their biggest
Lady Kate, the entitled eldest.
Lady Grace, lost in the middle and wishing she were braver.
Lady Lizzy, so endlessly sunny, it’s easy to underestimate her.
Then there’s Will Harvey, the proud, to-die-for—and possibly die with!—stable boy; Daniel
Murray, the resourceful second footman with a secret; Raymond Allen, the unfortunate-looking
young duke; and Fanny Rogers, the unsinkable kitchen maid.
Upstairs! Downstairs! Toss in some farmers and villagers!
None of them ever expected to work together for any reason.
But none of them had ever seen anything like this.
When Will Harvey’s aunt shoots her husband, no one believes her when she tells people that he was most definitely dead, before rising back to life and trying to kill her. Then when the zombies reach Clarke’s estate, everyone must set aside their differences and work together, and try to stay alive.
It’s like Downton Abbey meets Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I’m not one who generally will pick up a zombie book, but I’m a big Pride and Prejudice fan along with being a mega Downton Abbey fan. The book starts off a little slow but it does pick up some speed in the middle. It is told from various points of views. It gives you the views from the upstairs with the sisters to Will Harvey to some of the downstairs staff.
If you like zombie books then this book is for you but if you only like historical fiction pieces then this book isn’t for you. It is a short and fun book.
I give this 3 stars. But I’m not much of a zombie lover. 🙂
