Cinderella and Zombies
What happens when you take a classic fairy tale and add a few zombies to it? Cinderella goes from being a pretty-faced pushover to being the best zombie-slayer in the kingd ...more
The Cinderella theme bothered me and I wasn’t sure how the author would fit it into the zombie arena. I was impressed. The book opens to Cinderella carrying out household tasks. Only there is a slight twist. Yes, she does do housework, she also has a garden she takes care of, not to mention her routine zombie checking of trav ...more
Emily begins her tale in the Kingdom of Fae, alternating between Prince Kent and Cinderella, both swearing to protect their people from the undead plague. Although reluctant to join forces at first, together they bec ...more
Cinders, a zombie killing heroine, who not only can pull off killing zombies with some really kick-butt knife throwing but do it with such skill and accuracy even while wearing a beautiful blue ball gown with some majo ...more
The author has managed to be true to both the zombie and fairy tale genres at the same time, managing to give us both a strong female protagonist *and* a happy ever after ending! Loved it!
I’ve always loved the fairytale of Cinderella. I mean, every girl wants to be swept off her feet by a prince, right? Well, this girl just happens to be really good at killing zombies. And so is the prince.
Prince Kent loves to fight. He loves to help his people and be at the front lines, defending his kingdom. His father, on the other hand, wants to keep him safe and sound inside the palace walls. He also wants Kent to gent married. Immediately. Whe ...more
This story was kick ass. I really liked it. So far, I have been very lucky with fairy tale re-tellings, with or without the zombie factor.
Cinderella was definitely NOT a pushover in this story. She was a hard fighter from the very beginning. When the kingdom is under threat, she doesn't shy away from doing what she needs to do to help save it. She was even slightly arrogant about it, which made me laugh. Even the Prince was beneath her, at least in t ...more

A minor drawback were some very abrupt passages, which could have been presented more smoothly. E.g. the declaration of the king that his so ...more
Well, in this story, she does. She's very active, opinionated, quick on the uptake -- just like a heroine should be. This Cinderella won't wait for her fairy godmother to set things right without being prepared to do her p ...more
This book is worth a read to anyone wanting something slightly different and not causing a brain meltdown with trying to remember everything that goes on.
I totally loved that Cinders shoes, dress and pumpkin helped her not only get her a prince but also killed zombies and saved the day.

I'm a writer from Tallahassee who chases three crazy kids around the house all day before collapsing in front of my computer.
I write everything from fairy tales to zombies, whatever's exciting to me. (The muse likes to bounce around.)
Other little tid-bits: I'm a dog person (I have a German Shepherd named Guybrush), I like to run (most of the time) and majored in Psychology (which explains why I'm...more
