    Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter by C.A Frustrates a different kind of book, for sure I would guess that Lizzie would ve preferred this version than real life What I know from history books is her step mother and her hated each other Her father was wealthy but wouldn t have some of the basics in the house like a bath He also was an unscrupulous business man that probably got him killed because he was not at all liked Lizzie was stuck there due to society s rules and laws At least in this book she gets to kick some zombie buns and solve mysteries.

    This is a fast paced zombie ghoul slaying tale that answers the question you never knew you had about the Lizzie Borden case What if a zombie plague were the reason Lizzie Borden wacked her parents with an ax I LOVED this set up and that it jumps right into the grisly murders And they are grisly Unfortunately, for me at least, I had a little trouble with the aftermath of it all The story follows the Borden trial and tries to stay true to events that happened in real life all while a zombie plague is brewing in the town Lizzie stays mute about the truth and this is where I had trouble shutting off my brain because I felt she should ve been screaming the truth from the rooftops in order to prove her innocence That s what I would ve done instead of sitting in jail and having the town turn against me and thinking I was a murderess of innocents I suppose I m selfish like that Worse though was that she was covering up for some fickle man and a secret ghoul slaying society and that irritated the heck out of me.So, because of this, I found the book a little bit of a struggle for me personally Lizzie s motivation and strange romances didn t sit right with me either With that said, it was certainly gruesome and action packed and there was a nice ghastly twist at the end that made me cringe and there isn t much that makes me cringe these days.

    I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review This is in no way reflected in my opinion of this story 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.

    Lizzie Borden is in trouble after killing her father and stepmother, she faces the scrutiny of officials, but what the law and the masses hurling insults outside her home don t know, is that she had to defend herself from them They were no longer living flesh, but were mindless and intent on causing harm Determined to protect her sister and help with the threat to society, Lizzie accepts the consequences of her actions She just hopes the noose doesn t get to her first, before she can solve the mystery surrounding her family WARNING This review contains minor spoilers I received this book in exchange for an honest review I thank C.A Verstraete for giving me the opportunity.What struck me first and foremost was the creative concept we all have heard of dear ol Lizzie Borden, right Lizzie Borden took an axe, And gave her mother forty whacks, When she saw what she had done, She gave her father forty one Implementing zombies into the mix promised entertainment of the undead variety, and that s indeed what Verstraete succeeded in doing Whilst staying true to historic events as much as possible, a mystery involving Lizzie s deceased father brought with it an air of intrigue There were secret societies, many battles, and a nefarious plot with all the trimmings The writing was also quite decent as well, if not for the over use of certain words when describing the zombies though I imagine there s only so many ways to describe a rotting corpse.I did have some other issues that I ll get into The romance aspects didn t make much sense to me they added nothing other than a thirty something year old woman pining over men like a teenager I wouldn t even consider it romance per se there was very little development and chemistry between characters It merely consisted of Lizzie swooning over how handsome they yes, than one were The saturation of romance in fiction bothers me a great deal, because it s not needed to make, or improve, a story Friendship can be equally heartwarming, and definitely a better option than a shoehorned relationship that brings nothing to the table I also believe that, taking into account Lizzie s monologue about being a spinster and proud of it, she was awfully hypocritical Lizzie s motivations certainly weren t clear, and I would have preferred depth, and less of the bizarre man lusting There s also the fact that weapons seemed to materialise out of thin air, just when they were needed Hatchets, pipes, and whatever else were conveniently in place to save the day multiple times It s these little bits and pieces that were glossed over suspension of disbelief relied upon There were glaring flaws I found in the plot, as well Lizzie immediately acted guilty of murder hiding and destroying evidence when she could have easily admitted to self defence I understood the desire to stay close to the documented, real life happenings, but thought could have gone into the execution As fun as I think the book was when it comes down to it, it held many holes that stood out to my critical mind The biggest strength was the ending, which was grim in a way I thoroughly enjoyed It was a nice surprise indeed.In conclusion Action packed and full of decay, this instalment as the first of a duology had promise It served well for a bit of pleasant amusement, but as soon as I started thinking about it too much, certain elements like the lack of character building got to me.Notable Quote Her father s face, never handsome yet commanding just the same, resembled an image from one of her childhood nightmares.

    I am a huge Lizzie Borden fan, so anything that even has her name on it is fodder for my obsession and this fit that bill perfectly, and zombies too Well that was too good to pass up The first book started out pretty normally, just like the events of that day but the difference is that Lizzie comes upon her stepmother or stepmonster as some people who follow the case would call her in the bedroom and when she turns around Lizzie sees something unspeakable and has no idea what is happening Abby Borden is SOMETHING, but of course you are reading the book and you have to consider that back in her day, they would have not even known what the word zombies was Then of course her father has also turned and both of them are axed to death by Lizzie with the help of her sister Emma Now if you follow the case, Emma was supposedly out of town at the time of the murders so she was never a suspect What I love about this book is that every chapter starts with a REAL question from Lizzie s inquisition that she faced And then follows a story about how Lizzie has to realize that although SHE and The Society as she comes to know them know of the zombies, no one else does and she is still seen as a murderer by the people The difference is that her sister does not, she knows what really happened that day But neither can say anything because The Society has told them they can have no part in the case or in the public eye Soon the streets are filling up with zombies and even though the neighbors start to come out their doors, they don t seem to realize what is going on but of course who would In those days that was unheard of I think that is what makes this series so great is that Lizzie becomes a heroine in her own right rather than someone who is looked upon as a possible murderess from the readers perspective I personally never thought Lizzie committed the crimes, but that is my own opinion I really enjoyed watching Lizzie s character go through the changes, becoming an amazingly strong and efficient killer of zombies And she also realizes that her father is somehow involved in all of these people being turned but she has to figure out how and she has to do it quickly, quietly and not get turned herself and at the same time protect Emma And all this while preparing for her own trial, knowing that she is innocent and knowing she could prove it if she found out the truth, but wondering how that will be possible with The Society involved It s definitely a page turner and after finishing this one I couldn t wait for the second book to find out what really happens In a big way, this book also reminded me of the Pride Prejudice Zombies book because the females became the well trained and intelligent ones and they learned how to defend themselves I give this book 5 stars

    I absolutely loved the twist on twist on the Lizzie Borden story, Lizzie is a level headed girl who likes to stay in control of situations and just get on with life but after strange and horrible things occur with Mrs Borden her step mother and her farther she learns life has many a horror hiding in plain sight Life changes for Lizzie after she meets John who is to help her prepare for her trial and potential jail sentence John introduces her to real life and what he and others have been doing in secret as to not alarm the general population and after she gets a taste she finds a new calling in life however it isn t easy as she must train to do well, find out what her farther had to do with these horrors lurking in the dark as well as find who she really is and keep her sister Emma safe I was absolutely hooked on this read as I felt I felt I was there in their time and didn t know what twist or surprise would happen next and seeing everything Lizzie went through emotionally as well as physical was addictive But be warned you know the ending is coming but still when you read it you are still gutted, thankfully we have book 2 to see what happens next

    I m sure a lot of you are fascinated by the legend of Lizzie Borden Did she truly hack her parents to death with an axe and get away with it And, if so, why such a violent killing method Well, this book will answer your question Perhaps, they were zombies Oh yes They were in this tale And Lizzie had no choice but to whack them multiple times to make sure they died, again.This was a fast, entertaining tale You ll get the events, the trial, and what comes after The author follows much of the true story, adding in zombies and conspiracy to really make it thrilling She did a fine job too Many parts are recognizable, and when she weaves in the zombie aspect, she does it smoothly, making it darn near believable.Lizzie goes to extraordinary limits to protect her beloved sister, Emma, and find out who s behind the zombie epidemic I enjoyed this version of Lizzie She s much in character with her strong love and protectiveness for her sister She may start out timidly, but she soon becomes quite proficient at taking out the shufflers.The conspiracy was good too The zombies had to come from somewhere, right The motive was as old as time The mess was something else altogether.As the zombie numbers continue to grow, so do the encounters Some scenes are pretty hairy Have you thinking the worst As with all zombie stories, anything can happen Characters you ve become fond of can, and sometimes do, die.I enjoyed how the author opened each new chapter with excerpts from Lizzie s trial Much of the story took place afterwards and the trial wasn t the main focus, so these were especially interesting.A thrilling read from the get go, with well fleshed out characters, which I m sure the zombies appreciate , and plenty of zombie action for all who love the genre.I received this book for my honest review.
