I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. 

I am a HUGE fan of Richard's so I was excited to be able to get to read this. If you like horror retellings you will enjoy this novel. Based on the horror classic "White Zombie" but with a steampunk atmosphere and modern humor.

Rating between 3.5/4

I enjoyed the journey this book took me. The writing was entertaining and very much the style of the author. It read to me as middle grade more than YA, however it gave me the feel of nostalgia as I read it. For the books I read when I was in middle school and high school. I also enjoyed that it was fast pace and still enjoyed the characters as the story progressed.

Really looking forward to reading the sequel.
