Description

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls.

by Steve Hockensmith.

OVERVIEW: Journey back to Regency England—Land of the Undead—in this 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. As the undead emerge and the bodies pile up, we watch Elizabeth Bennet evolve from a naive young teenager into a ferocious slayer of the undead, while two men vie for her affections: the young warrior Master Hawksworth and the man of science Dr. Keckilpenny.

"This story kicks off with a certain Mr. Ford sitting up in the middle of his own funeral. In response, the Bennet sisters begin intensive training in the deadly arts with their warrior father and a new Master. Their neighbors, much slower on the uptake, are variously dismembered, disillusioned, and eventually convinced to prepare for a terrifying final confrontation. With a sure grasp of Austen's characters and the social structures of the times, [Steve] Hockensmith is loyal to the material's roots but, divorced from any particular text, he's able to take Grahame-Smith's silly, raunchy, violent tone much farther than in the first volume. Mixing taught horror-movie action with neo-Austen meditation on identity, society, and romance, this happy sacrilege is sure to please fans of Grahame-Smith's original mash-up."—Publishers Weekly
