Gravely Inanimated Review

Title: Gravely Inanimated
Author: Esther Wheelmaker
Genre: Steampunk horror/paranormal
Pages: 218

The Blurb: 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: Zombies, I don't read about zombies. I don't even get how zombies could even remotely exist and why they want brains. Totally not a zombie fan; but, wait, no, it can't be. I think I'm getting into this book! I am realizing resistance is futile, I must know more. I indeed have been sucked into the zombie world and now am so into this story that all I can see are zombies everywhere. Braaaiiiinnnnsssss...

I have new book hero, Aeron, he can really kick some zombie butt! I absolutely love Lucy's story and how her character comes off and how easily she plays off of the others. If I had zombies chasing me I'd want Aeron on my team! These two absolutely become the essence of this book and make the story come alive for me.

Esther Wheelmaker's words came to life for me in Gravely Inanimated. I smelled the stench and I felt the blood spatter. She transported me to a whole new world one that I would love to be transported to again in the next book of this series! I say bring on the zombies!

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.
