Trying to keep the reason for their deaths a secret, she gets involved with a secret society. With the help of her lawyer John Fremont and his colleagues, she learns how to battle the walking dead and becomes a one woman fighting machine.
The author had definitely done her research on the Lizzie Borden as each chapter opened up with an excerpt of either the trial or a quote of a newspaper article. This made the story more believable. Whilst the trial is mentioned, the majority of the story takes place after the event and we see Lizzie and her sister Emma try to get the bottom of their father’s involvement in the whole thing.
Lizzie was a strong willed girl and I was surprised that she was the younger sister, as she was always making sure that Emma was ok. When she was a suspect in her parent’s murder, I liked how she took charge of her life, learning how to fight and even starting a love interest with John. Even when she was shunned from people she still held her head up high.
Battling zombies is dirty work and this book does not shy away from this fact. Full of action, blood and gore, made this a well written exciting story. The twist at the end was unexpected but not a complete surprise and the way the book ended gives scope for further books.
If you like history meets fantasy than this is a great book to read. Move over Elizabeth Bennett, there is a new zombie hunter in town.
Most of us know the tale of Lizzie Borden and her ill-fated parents thanks to the mysterious nature of the crime and the folk rhyme "Lizzie Borden took an axe And gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done She gave her father forty-one." C.A. Verstraete has turned the legend on it's head in Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter, an adventurous romp through a nightmare landscape peopled with evil villains and monsters. I had so much fun reading this book! Lizzie is a strong willed heroine who must help solve the mystery of what is causing the zombie outbreak and how her father was involved, all while trying to stay out of prison. I loved her bad-assitude and take charge manner as she learns how to deal with the ever rising zombie threat. The action is fast paced and exciting with a great twist at the end. If you liked Pride and Prejudice and Zombies or Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter you're going to love this gem of a book. A perfect 4.5 star fall read just in time for Halloween, highly recommended.
