One day her prince would come…disguised as a zombie-killer. Having been disgraced and tossed out by her own scientific community, Gwyn is convinced she can develop a cure for a Super Virus that has turned the Infected into zombies. By pure luck and determination, she has survived on her own for years, but while out scavenging, a clash with the local zombies leaves her potentially infected. Now, running out of time, she needs help and takes a chance on a hero for hire.

 Rafe loves the apocalypse. Since the world went to hell, everything’s come up roses for him. Having procured a mansion in the Hollywood hills, adopted a slew of homeless boys and one cantankerous but useful Doc, Mr. Charming is benefiting from the nasty zombie infestation. His job? Killing the bastards, which he considers fun anyway. Gwyn Snow needs Rafe Charming to help retrieve her research from the Paragon Pharmaceuticals lab, also known as Zombie Central. Believing she can yet save the world, Gwyn makes Rafe question what’s right and what’s worth the fight.

 ***Brittney, #NerdGirlBrittney’s Review***

This book was a quirky, romantic zombie tale. Similar with any zombie book, I was always waiting for a zombie to crawl out of some space and eat a character at any given moment. The whole idea of zombies creeps me out soo much. The Snow White and Seven Dwarves tie in was completely unexpected but 100% awesome. I read the whole book in one sitting. I loved it, and I hope that the second book continues right where the first let off. There is some definite romance in the novel. Prince Charming and Snow White fall in love freakishly fast. This could be due to their instant attraction or the fact that there aren’t many people left in the world. It was annoying at points but did not ruin the book. The novella leaves a ton of room for a future series and future stories.

 This book was completely unexpected. From the fairy tale tie in to the zombie race their were interesting twists and suspenseful moments. I just couldn’t put it down, the writing was fabulous. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised and would recommend this book to any adult readers. There are some pretty explicit sex scenes and would not feel comfortable having a teen read.
