Complete with romance, action, comedy, and an army of shambling corpses, this prequel to the hit mash-up novel will have Jane Austen rolling in her grave--or crawling out of it! 
Four years before the events of  Pride and Prejudice and Zombies , the Bennet sisters are enjoying a peaceful life in the English countryside, reading, gardening, and daydreaming about future husbands--until a funeral at the local parish goes strangely and horribly awry. Suddenly, corpses are springing from the soft earth--and only one family can stop them. As the bodies pile up, Elizabeth Bennet grows from a naive young teenager into a savage slayer of the undead. Along the way, two men vie for her affections: Master Hawksworth is the powerful warrior who trains her to kill, while thoughtful Dr. Keckilpenny seeks to conquer the walking dead using science instead of strength. Will either man win the prize of Elizabeth's heart? Or will their hearts be feasted upon by hordes of marauding zombies?

I was funny though not as good as 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies'.

Not bad, good writing, definitely a new twist on zombies.
