Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Dawn of the Dreadfuls

Book 1 of 3 in the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Series
Readers will witness the birth of a heroine in Dawn of the Dreadfuls—a thrilling prequel set four years before the horrific events of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. As our story opens, the Bennet sisters are enjoying a peaceful life in the English countryside. They idle away the days reading, gardening, and daydreaming about future husbands—until a funeral at the local parish goes strangely and horribly awry.

Suddenly corpses are springing from the soft earth—and only one family can stop them. As the bodies pile up, we watch Elizabeth Bennet evolve from a naive young teenager into a savage slayer of the undead. Along the way, two men vie for her affections: Master Hawksworth is the powerful warrior who trains her to kill, while thoughtful Dr. Keckilpenny seeks to conquer the walking dead using science instead of strength. Will either man win the prize of Elizabeth’s heart? Or will their hearts be feasted upon by hordes of marauding zombies? Complete with romance, action, comedy, and an army of shambling corpses, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls completes the real stories Jane Austen started to tell you, but you just weren’t ready for them. Until now.

Ultimately, whether you have read Austen’s original Pride and Prejudice or not, and whether you loved it or hated it, if you are a fan of zombies, romance and katana fights then this is the novel for you!
Moreover, once you have read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies then we also strongly suggest that you check out the novel’s prequel; Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls. Although this novel was written by Steve Hockensmith as Seth Grahame Smith was otherwise occupied with the biographical journal Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, this prequel still retains the wit and charm that has enamoured millions of avid readers to Smith’s works.
Within this prequel Steve Hockensmith details how a funeral at their local parish introduced the young Bennet sisters to the horrors of a zombie infestation. If you loved Pride and Prejudice and Zombies then you will relish learning how the landed gentry of Meryton came to be overwhelmed by hordes of the living undead and how Elizabeth Bennet and her sisters came to be schooled in the anti-zombie martial arts that have kept their family alive against all odds.

Verdict

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Dawn of the Dreadfuls is a prequel to the sensational Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and explains how and why the Bennett sisters got to be such skilled zombie slayers. If you read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies this is a thoroughly enjoyable must read for you. If you are a Jane Austen fan and also like zombies, you will thoroughly entertained by the work of Steve Hockensmith who doesn’t stray too far from Austen’s original characters and lets you in on some hidden revelations left out in the original books such as Mr. Bennett’s secret history and what really went on in the greenhouse. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Dawn of the Dreadfuls is a thoroughly good read mashing literature and zombie slaying in a page-turning best seller. From the moment the first corpse stands up and walks you will be gripped!
