Pride, Prejudice and Zombies

Dreadfully Ever After is the second installment in the Pride, Prejudice and Zombies book series. As the second installment, this book picks up four years from where the previous installment had left off from. Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet are now married and are residing Mr. Darcy’s country estate. Elizabeth is now a properly married woman, which in turn means that she has already hang her katana and flint flock. Everything from now on should be perfect since she not only has the man of her dreams but she has everything that she has always wanted. However, instead of being happy, Elizabeth is feeling uneasy with her own life. One day when taking a long country walk, Fitzwilliam is not only attacked but also bitten by a zombie and from the look of things his death is inevitable.

However, as luck would have it, the formidable lady Catherine arrives. Lady Catherine has heard rumors about the possible cures of a zombie bite, thus she demands that Fitzwilliam should be placed under her care. Thus, it falls to the Benet clan to look for a cure for the ailing Fitzwilliam. As all this is happening, Fitzwilliam Darcy is taken care of by his cousin and aunt both of whom have their own reasons of assisting him. With that said, this installment has been split into two alternating chapters. The author has provided a great insight into the characters of Kitty and Mary Benet. Kitty, on the one hand, is going on a journey that she has never been to and also free herself from her sister’s shadow.

As expected Lydia is not in this novel because she already found the happiness that she had been looking for in the first installment of the series. Also other characters have been brought from the previous installment and given a shot at redemption. The great thing about this novel is the high element of romance present. The romance element was not only exciting but also more believable than any other novel that you may come across. This may be because all the lady characters in the book are all brimming with personality. This installment is also full of humour, retorts and absurd scenarios.

Pride, Prejudice and Zombies is the first installment in this mystery book series. In this installment, the Zombies are referred to as the dreadful or the unmentionables. This book is centered on the Benet family. Mr. Benet is a zombie killer who is married to an exceedingly silly and dram queen wife. They have five daughters, all of whom are frivolous and inane. Thus, Mr. Benet decides to teach his five daughters, the art of killing zombies. The author, Mr. Hockensmith has done an excellent job of describing all the hideous events with dignity and grace, thereby providing an exceedingly hilarious story. Delivering a truly amusing humor is an exceedingly difficult task, which Mr. Hockensmith has perfectly executed.

It does not take long before Jane and Elizabeth Benet manage to soon rise to the top of their class, while the other three sisters trail them. As the book progresses, the Benet sisters undergo a complete transformation. In the beginning, they were reluctant to become warriors, but once they accept their destiny, they are able to learn what it truly means to become an English woman. While Jane Benet constantly sees the good in each and every person, including the lustful Baron, Elizabeth Benet is a little bit more level headed.

It does not take long before Elizabeth begins to fall for the exceedingly powerful and mysterious master Hawksworth, who comes to mold the Benet’s into ninjas. An exceedingly attractive army officer who does not approve the notion of English women battling against zombies distracts Jane. Elizabeth does find a distraction in an idiosyncratic and young doctor whose commitment in re-Anglicizing the dead seems a little bit misplaced since they are not only dead but also decomposing. Throughout the novel, Elizabeth experiences several awakenings, and in the process becomes a true hero and warrior. However, when it comes to men, Elizabeth encounters a number of disappointments.

With that said, the author has managed to populate this installment with an extraordinary cast of characters, with some being admirable while others being despicable. The author also walks a fine line between disgusting and decorum and delivers an exceedingly satisfying story, which turns out to be horrible, savage, hilarious, sad and savage. Holmes on the RangeHolmes on the Range is the first installment in the mystery series, Holmes on the Range, which has been set in Montana. This installment introduces the reader to Otto �Big Red’ Amlingmeyer and Old Red Gustav his brother. The two are nomadic cowboys who have just taken temporary jobs, which had been offered in different ranches.

In this installment, they are hired by one, Uly MacPherson who is the current manager of the Castlemere Ranch, which is popularly known as the Bar VR. On a normal day, this is an assignment, that they would not accept since the Bar VR and the McPherson brothers do not have a reputation. The main reason why the take this job opportunity is because one of the brothers is out of money while the other due to his sleuthing abilities he has already sensed a little bit of mystery. With that said, this fantastic read will keep you entertained especially if you are a lover of the westerners.
