The final novel in the Pride and Prejudice and Zombie trilogy is published today. Dreadfully Ever After by Steve Hockensmith picks up the story four years later. Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy are now happily married and living at Mr Darcy's country estate, Pemberly. Elizabeth has hung up her flintlock and katana, as it is improper for a married woman to be involved in dealing with 'the stricken'. Everything should be perfect, she has the man of her dreams and leads the life she has always wanted but instead she feels unease with her life. She is unsure if she wants to start a family and misses her warrior lifestyle.

During a long country walk Darcy is attacked and bitten by a zombie and the death of Elizabeth's husband seems all but inevitable until Darcy's aunt, the formidable Lady Catherine De Bourgh arrives. She has heard rumours of a possible cure but before Elizabeth can investigate further Lady Catherine demands Darcy is placed in her care. It falls to The Bennet clan to try and locate the key to Darcy's salvation. Meanwhile Darcy is to be looked after by his aunt and cousin, Anne, both of whom appear to have their own reasons for wishing to help out.

The book then splits so we have alternating chapters following the Bennet's adventures in London and Darcy trying to stave off his conversion to a flesh eating zombie.

In my review of Dawn of the Dreadfuls, the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies prequel novel, I thought the text was missing some of the verbal flourishes you would expect when reading a book based on Austen. In the case of Dreadfully Ever After I am pleased to report I have no such quibbles. As a direct sequel to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies this is exactly the novel I was hoping for.

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 25 Aug. 2011
Format: Paperback
First, we had "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies." Then we got a prequel, "Dawn of the Dreadfuls."

And finally we have a sequel to round out this warped Regency romance-with-zombies trilogy: "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After." This time Steve Hockensmith whacks the Darcy-Bennett families with a threat much closer to home, and it's an amusing little ride with a very slow middle section.

After four years of marriage, Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy are taking a leisurely walk when Darcy is attacked and bitten by a little dreadful boy. Despite her training, Elizabeth's love for Darcy stops her from beheading and burning him; instead, she appeals to Lady Catherine for a cure. Lady Catherine reveals that a London scientist named Angus McFarquhar (hee hee!) has the cure, and she has a plan for getting it.

However, the plan involves Elizabeth leaving her infected husband at Rosings, and setting out to seduce the serum out of the scientist. Soon Lady Catherine's diabolical schemes pull the Bennett family to London, leading to a gruesome race against time involving a sexy ninja, a rabbit, a mystery man in a box, a bunch of dandies and the increasingly sinister Anne de Bourgh! Can Lizzy cure Darcy before he becomes an undead horror?

"Dreadfully Ever After" isn't quite as entertainingly tongue-in-cheek as the original "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," though it is fun to revisit Jane Austen's characters after four zombie-strewn years. And as anyone would expect of a "P&P&Z" sequel, there's bloody flesh-tearing gore aplenty.

And Hockensmith has plenty of fun mingling Regency mores (a gentleman's wife simply doesn't carry weapons!) with lots of ninjas, zombies, and martial-arts-filled scuffles.

Four years have passed since Elizabeth married Darcy, and she is no longer allowed to carry weapons. During a walk back home, Darcy is bitten by an unmentionable. Elizabeth must swallow her pride, and cast aside her honor if she is to receive help from Lady Catherine, who has made at least one assassination attempt on Elizabeth since the wedding. Mr. Bennett and Kitty are drafted to help Elizabeth by pretending to be a family of rich foreigners (loved that Elizabeth uses the name "Ursula" heh heh) to root out a possible cure being kept secret from the general public.

The story is told through several POVs, but Elizabeth is surprisingly not the central figure. More attention is given to Darcy's and Kitty's perspectives, and I enjoyed the character of Kitty very much this time around; she has grown up quite from the silly girl in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. In contrast, another of the Bennett girls, Mary, has become quite outgoing, and her character was another favorite of mine in this sequel. In fact, I found Elizabeth to be extremely boring compared to her sisters. (I am even hoping that Kitty and Mary might have their own adventure, if Hockensmith is up to writing just one more!)

Darcy's cousin Anne is portrayed in a rather sinister manner, and when it is revealed what has happened to Anne during her time under the thumb of her mother -Lady Catherine- she was a formidable character, as opposed to the meek girl she once was. In addition, the source of the possible cure is horrific and repulsive, showing how desperate the English have become.
