Review Source: Author

It has been thirty years since England was plagued by zombies. Humans fear for their lives while the dead kill the living.
By the cover of night, a man known only as Aeron hunts these creatures. On one foggy evening he finds Lucille Knight's life in jeopardy and Aeron's interest is instantly peaked when he saves the young lady.
But Aeron will have competition when Lucy meets Lord Garrett Ashdown, son of the Inventor, Earl Thomas.
Lucy is drawn to the masked man and equally mysterious Lord. With one concealing his true identity and the other hiding a ghastly secret, she does not know which one is less dangerous.
Will she be able to be with the man she chooses when she learns the awful truth?

I haven’t done a review in quite a while and forgive me if this one seems a little rusty. I was given this eBook a while back and could not believe that it took me this long to read it. It is amazing!!! Although I love paranormal for some reason I do not like most zombie books or movies but this book was really great. I loved it in its entirity. It had friendship, hardship, romance and paranormal, so of course I fell in love right from the beginning.

The part I love the most is the time it’s based in. It’s based on a century where father’s would choose who their daughters married. It also based on Lords and Countess and traveling in horses. I absolutely love anything in that era and I think it’s one of the best parts of the book.

The friendship between Lucy and Emily was one that you don’t see very often. I don’t think that you can even call it a friendship; it was more like being siblings. They were like sisters basically. Without giving too much away, I was a little shocked at the turn of events that happened between those two. I would have liked to have seen more of her.

Now for the best part, it’s the romance between Lucy and Lord Ashdown. OMG!!! I love everything about these two. The way they irritate each other, laugh at each other but over all are there for each other, that's not love that is not seen now-a-days. I absolutely loved how the author created these two to be the better halves of each other. She did an amazing job with these two.

Overall, this Esther did an amazing job with this story. The characters are great, the story line is amazing and the time line is the best. I am glad I took the time to read this story and I highly recommend it to all readers of all ages.
