Praise
"[A] gory and gross, wonderful and clever tale. He nails Austen's beloved characters and will have you cringing and giggling right through the blood-soaked end. A true delight, really." (top pick)
"This is a must-read for the growing legion of alternate-Austen fans...."

From the Publisher
Annotation The folks who brought the world what it didn't know it wanted with PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES ups the death toll with this prequel. Not technically a mash-up like its predecessor, since Jane Austen never wrote a prequel to her novel, DAWN OF THE DREADFULS is pure parody. But clearly Steve Hockensmith knows Austen's style and quirks inside and out, so this reads with as much Austen-ticity as PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES. Here readers will get to know a young Elizabeth Bennet, who is just beginning to understand her zombie killing--and flirtatious--powers. (It's hardly a spoiler to say that she excels in one area and is a bit remedial in the other.) The undead and laughs are plentiful in DAWN OF THE DREADFULS.
