In this prequel to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, we witness the birth of a true heroine. The story opens with the Bennet sisters enjoying an idyllic life in the countryside of England and spend their days gardening, reading and daydreaming about their future marriages. Then a funeral at the local church goes horribly awry. Corpses start rising from the earth and one person can stop them. In one fell swoop, Elizabeth Bennet evolves from an innocent young girl into a savage zombie slayer. There is blood, there is gore, there is romantic interest with two very different men vying for her, albeit blood-spattered, hand. This book could well have Jane Austen spinning in her grave, just as long as she doesn’t decide to crawl out of it!
