I'm kind of new to the zombie genre and haven't really got my bearings as to what I think is a 'proper' zombie, and I have never read a steampunk novel before. After reading Wheelmaker's novel, I do believe I will like sitting in this spot.
I have to say I love this novel. Wheelmaker leaves her zombies dangerous and her love triangle interesting (if you know me you know I hate love triangles so that is a fierce compliment) enough for me to want to keep reading. I blew through this book in just two evenings and I am making grabby hands for book 2! This is definitely an author to watch!
Her name is Esther Wheelmaker and she is the author of the new, Zombiepunk Series. With Gravely Inanimated (book one) coming to life, she is pounding away on her typewriter to try and get book two out. However, she is easily distracted by sparkly things.
Her background is a mystery and all anyone knows is she loves hugs, corsets, steampunk, books and Mozart….
…Let’s face it…Everyone likes a girl with a little mystery.
