Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Zombie Books

Now, this zombie book seemed custom-made to satisfy my desire from Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to understand the larger world of the story. And, to some extent it delivers on that. But if you are looking for a literal prequel this book is inconsistent with the “original”.

Okay, in the original Pride and Prejudice and Zombies it is clearly stated that they studied in another country. There is some suggestion that they were raised as warriors. This book throws that all out the window….

Okay, different author – different backstory. I’m not happy, but what I really wanted was a 19th century zombie story, so I won’t fuss too much about it. This story does have the problems prequels in general have – you can’t get too worried about major characters because you know they’ll be okay.

But I couldn’t put it down. I really wanted to know what was going to happen next – limited to 19th century technology mixed with ninja warriors makes for an exciting story.
