Dawn of The Dreadfuls Book Review , Book Trailer, & Giveaway


                                                         Winner is #12 Bookie! Congrats!


Journey Back to Regency England -- Land of the Undead!

Readers will witness the birth of a heroine in Dawn of the Dreadfuls -- a thrilling prequel set four years before the horrific events of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. As our story opens, the Bennet sisters are enjoying a peaceful life in the English countryside. They idle away the days reading, gardening, and daydreaming about future husbands -- until a funeral at the local parish goes strangely and horribly awry.

Suddenly corpses are springing from the soft earth -- and only one family can stop them. As the bodies pile up, we watch Elizabeth Bennet evolve from a naive young teenager into a savage slayer of the undead. Along the way, two men vie for her affections: Master Hawksworth is the powerful warrior who trains her to kill, while thoughtful Dr. Keckilpenny seeks to conquer the walking dead using science instead of strength. Will either man win the prize of Elizabeth's heart? Complete with romance, action, comedy, and an army of shambling corpses, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls will have Jane Austen rolling in her grave -- and just might inspire her to crawl out of it! 
 
Read an Excerpt
Book Trailer - This is a little gory so you may not want the little ones looking over your shoulder. After this Trailer, I'm ready for the Movie!

My Thoughts - This book was a lot of fun! I hadn't read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies but I will now. Something about adding the supernatural to a classic story is hilarious to me.

I loved this book so much I want to share it with one of my readers!

+2 I commented on a non-giveaway post on taking time for mommy under post, the whys and the wherefores that talks about ways to make healthier lifestyle choices, by something as simple as watching what we eat, the types of foods, etc.
