Grave Morality by JC Finch Review
I truly enjoyed this book, maybe I am warped but the way these people were murdered was ingenious. The “killer” is never actually present for any of it, they just pulls the puppet’s strings, letting someone else pull the trigger. There were enough plot twists to keep you interested but not too many as to lose you completely, the characters where engaging, the story itself draws you in and will not release you until you are finally at the end. There really isn’t much I can say without giving the book away and I wouldn’t want to ruin your fun. What I can say is be sure to have tissues available!

So Many Reviews So Little Time?

Negative Space by Betsy Miller Review
By Betsy Miller
This is a short story, about seven pages in all, about a woman who has recently suffered a miscarriage and her struggle with that fact.
The story was well written, and very beautiful I can only imagine the pain that Michelle Green was going through. I should point this out before I continue I don’t have children but I am married. When the main character, Michelle, started talking about, in essence, how she and her husband where not whole just the two of them it irritated me, then we have the sentence that drove me mad “For him the one they had lost would be interchangeable with the one yet to come.” Maybe I am spoiled by having a wonderful husband who stands by me and doesn’t mind that we can’t have children but I cannot picture any man who would act this way. I give it 3/5 stars because like I said it is well written and beautiful, some women out there will love this story I am just not one of them.

Dawn of the Dreadfuls by Steve Hockensmith Review
By Steve Hockensmith
Some of you may know that Dawn of the Dreadfuls is the prequel to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Considering this, I decided I would read this first and try not to compare it to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. The story opens during a funeral where, suddenly, the guest of honor, or the dearly departed, sits up straight up in his casket. We really have no idea why the dead do not remain that way nor why this epidemic arose roughly 20 years ago shortly followed by "the troubles;" a war fought against the zombie hordes.
In this book we watch as the five Bennet daughters are schooled in the "Shaolin style." This story predominantly centers on Elizabeth Bennet, the second oldest daughter, and her transformation from a teenager to warrior, two men vying for her affections, her master, Hawksworth, who instructing her in the deadly arts, and an eccentric scientist Dr. Keckilpenny, who is preoccupied with the study of zombies in his personal quest to better understand how to best handle them.
I am conflicted in my review of this novel. I think one may need to read "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" first to thoroughly enjoy the way this book is laid out for us. As I stated earlier, it just seems like one long build up to the next book. It is a fun and easy read though, but sometimes tends to drag on. If, somehow, you persevere the ending is a fairly good cliff hanger.
Taking a break from the mayhem.
