Review: PPZ: Dreadfully Ever After by Steve Hockensmith (Rating 3.5 Wine Glasses)

Posted March 22, 2011 by Felicia S in Uncategorized / 0 Comments


From Goodreads: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and its prequel, Dawn of the Dreadfuls, were both New York Times best sellers, with a combined 1.3 million copies in print. Now the PPZ trilogy comes to a thrilling conclusion with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After.

The story opens with our newly married protagonists, Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy, defending their village from an army of flesh-eating “unmentionables.” But the honeymoon has barely begun when poor Mr. Darcy is nipped by a rampaging dreadful. Elizabeth knows the proper course of action is to promptly behead her husband (and then burn the corpse, just to be safe). But when she learns of a miracle antidote under development in London, she realizes there may be one last chance to save her true love—and for everyone to live happily ever after.

Received for review from Quirk

What I Loved: This was a fun, quirky end to the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies series.  My favorite character by far was Kitty.  She was spunky, fun and very dangerous when pushed.  Though this was a story about Elizabeth saving Darcy, I felt it was more about Kitty and Mary coming into their own.  Finally showing who they were and what they stood for.  It was about time the two youngest sisters got in on the action and had stories of their own!

What I Liked:  I liked the story Mary was involved with: breaking into the asylum, working with the boxes, and truly stepping out on her own.  She owned her part of the story without asking permission or taking orders from anyone!  Mary has always been observant and it paid off in spades.

Complaints: Honestly, I did not like the Elizabeth part of the antidote story.  While I knew in the end she would be the Elizabeth we know and love, somehow her being manipulated by Catherine so much did not ring true!

Why I gave it a 3.5: This was fun, quick read with some nice artwork in the book.  If you are a fan of the series, I think you will like the conclusion!

Who I would recommend it to: Fans of the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies series.
