Gravely Inanimated

It has been thirty years since England was plagued by zombies. Humans fear for their lives while the dead kill the living.

By the cover of night, a man known only as Aeron hunts these creatures. On one foggy evening he finds Lucille Knight’s life in jeopardy and Aeron’s interest is instantly peaked when he saves the young lady.

But Aeron will have competition when Lucy meets Lord Garrett Ashdown, son of the Inventor, Earl Thomas.

Lucy is drawn to the masked man and equally mysterious Lord. With one concealing his true identity and the other hiding a ghastly secret, she does not know which one is less dangerous.

Will she be able to be with the man she chooses when she learns the awful truth?

My review:

I am obsessed with steampunk and everything that goes along with it.I was introduced to it by my daughter’s tech teacher and it is such an intelligent, magical world. I also have a fascination with zombies so when I heard Gravely Inanimated combined three things I loved: zombies, steampunk and England I had to read it. I wasn’t disappointed. The author combined all three in a history lesson like we have never seen. In Victorian England zombies rule the night and rumors are the were created by an evil voodoo queen. Lucy Knight, the main character, is a overly privileged young girl that by several cruel twists of fate becomes a zombie hunter. The character development in this story is fantastic and Lucy ends up being a kick-ass girl after my own heart. I totally have not been in the mood for YA lately but this story totally won me over.  I HIGHLY recommend this book. Great read.

Author Bio:

Her name is Esther Wheelmaker and she is the author of the new, Zombiepunk Series.

With Gravely Inanimated (book one) coming to life, she is pounding away on her typewriter to try and get book two out. However, she is easily distracted by sparkly things.

Her background is a mystery and all anyone knows is she loves hugs, corsets, steampunk, books and Mozart….

…Let’s face it…Everyone likes a girl with a little mystery.
